I'm Elisa, I'm Italian mother tongue, I was born in Rome and grow up by the sea.
I moved to London, UK, 8 years ago to learn English (and I am still here).
Being away from home I've realized how much I love Italy, its culture, its landscape and most of all its genuine and simple food (by the way, I spend as much time I can to cook delicious food.) Be a teacher give me the opportunity to share my knowledge of the Italian language and culture with people interested.
I speak fluent English so I am able to communicate clearly with others. I am also a curious and easy-going person which makes it easy for me to make new friends and communicate with those around me.
MY TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
I am an experienced one-to-one Italian tutor online and in person as well as I'm working in a school as Italian teacher. I teach Italian as a foreign language, with focus in the adult learners profile (from beginner to advanced) and I hold a degree in Adult Education and a Diploma in Pedagogy.
MY TEACHING METHOD:
I like to use a creative approach to the lessons and I adapt my style to the needs of my students. My aim is to achieve the objectives that my students set for themselves and create friendly and comfortable interactions with my student. I will teach you how to pronounce your favourite songs, talk about your favourite Italian artist, get you ready for a journey to Italy, for a job interview or particular vocabulary, topics and skills that are applicable to the workplace and enable you to communicate accurately. A general lesson plan includes pronunciation, reading comprehension, conversation, grammar drills. I combine comprehensive grammatical structures with enjoyable, interactive activities.
