My name is Donatella and I’m a native Italian Language Tutor.
First of all, I think it is very important to introduce myself to give you the chance to get to know me better:
I have 2 undergraduate degrees: a Bachelor of Languages (in French and Japanese) and a Bachelor of Economics.
In addition, I have a Master’s degree in Training and Human Resource Management.
I love studying languages, economics and many other topics because I think learning is the key to understanding the world.
For the last four years, I have been teaching French to Italian speakers and, above all, Italian to foreigners and I have learnt that each student is unique.
Each student has a unique way of thinking, unique goals, and unique language learning needs.
As a language learner myself, I understand the difficulties you may have when learning Italian.
As a teacher, I do my best to adapt to your needs. I plan our lessons to suit you and your learning style.
I am always looking to improve as a teacher and I am studying a course in foreign language teaching
to become familiar with the latest methodologies.
During our trial lesson, we will discuss your learning goals and together we’ll make a detailed plan for you to reach them.
Using my materials you will be speaking Italian from day 1. During our classes we will develop all of the skills - reading, writing, listening and most importantly speaking - through many activities:
• listening to songs, watching film clips, reading texts
• pronunciation exercises
• the introduction and memorization of vocabulary in an efficient way
• and the study of grammar in an interactive way
