Hi everyone. I'm a qualified teacher of English (native speaker from Australia) and of Italian (heritage speaker), and also a qualified Counsellor. I hold a Bachelor of Arts (Italian and English) and a Master of Teaching (TESOL and Italian) from the University of Sydney, a Masters of Italian Teaching from the University of Perugia and also a Graduate Diploma of Counselling and a Masters of Counselling and Psychotherapy through the Australian College of Applied Psychology. I also speak Italian and am currently living in Italy.
Being a qualified teacher, I have worked across a wide range of school settings:
- in elementary and high schools.
- in university settings (Academic English, Business English and English exam preparation).
- in schools for migrants
- in evening schools
My experience as a School Counsellor also helps me to build rapport with my students, making them feel at ease and understood. I am able to teach across all levels and will tailor my lessons to best suit your needs and your current level of English. I can also help you with motivation, interview skills, and even any other psychological barriers you may be experiencing.
I have many interests including travelling, reading, watching films, exercise, anime, music, linguistics, psychology and literature.
I would love to help you to learn English. I have been on a language learning journey myself and have studied Linguistics as part of my degrees, so I have a solid understanding of the complexities of the English language.
Best of luck with all your studies and I look forward to meeting you.
