I have always had a passion for foreign languages. I have the chances to work for different organizations as a volunteer and paid teacher. I taught students of many different nationalities and this has taught me to appreciate the difficulties and the struggles of learning other languages. My personal motto when learning a language is SYL "Speak Your Language". This means that together we will strive to speak as much as possible of the target language, and please do not be afraid to make mistakes.
We will work together on developing effective language study plans and I will regularly check on you to see what it is working and helping you to reach your goal to become an Italian speaker.
