CIAO! My name is Raffaele and I am a native Italian speaker who has been living abroad for 7 years (so I know the initial difficulties to learn and speak a different language).
I have a Bachelors degree in Pedagogy and I have been working as an Italian teacher for foreigners/ refugees and in school projects with teenagers who dropped out of high school, since 2004. So if you are a shy beginner do not worry, we will build your confidence together through chats, games and laughs.
My lessons are interactive and involve a lot of conversation.
You'll set the goals and I'll tailor the classes to your needs and on your learning mechanisms. I will provide you with all the materials you need like: exercises, videos, podcasts, articles and everything that can suit your learning.
