Experienced teacher and native speaker gives Italian classes at all levels of proficiency

Methodology

My courses are based on the students needs and purposes in learning the language and I use engaging techniques - such as role play or storytelling - and multimedia tools to animate the class and create a comfortable environment for the students, while choosing themes of conversation that allow them to enhance their oral and written ability and enrich their vocabulary in the fields they need most.

Background

I am a teacher of Italian with a Master Degree in Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language and I have been teaching for seven years either group classes in schools and private one-to-one tuition courses from beginners at advanced levels in Italy and in the UK, before arriving in Canada.

Work Experience

Teacher of Italian 2014 - 2018

Prepared and taught one-to-one courses for adult professionals willing to improve their language skills for their work or family life.

Thanks to the knowledge acquired working in tourism, devised a course especially tailored for professionals of touristic services who work with the Italian market.

Used multimedia tools to animate the class and create a comfortable environment for the students, while choosing themes of conversation that allow them to enhance their oral ability and enrich their vocabulary in the fields they need most.

Teacher of Italian 2014 - 2018
Adult Education Program, The City of Edinburgh Council, Edinburgh, Scotland UK

Prepared and taught courses of Italian and Spanish for adult professionals and senior students at all levels of proficiency, teaching two to three courses each term.

Created a rich portfolio of activity for the class analyzing and choosing appropriate teaching material from the web and from different books.

Developed a curriculum for the language for traveling where students find themselves in situations that can arise while traveling, such as at a train station or booking a hotel, and they learn how to interact with the locals accordingly.

Improved the spoken ability of the students and their use of informal language in everyday conversation using role play, storytelling and group interaction within the class.

Motivated the students to keep learning and not to be discouraged by their mistakes with a positive approach, and inviting them to focus on their strengths rather than on their weak points.

Teacher of Italian 2011 - 2013
Italian Language School for Foreigners University of Palermo, Palermo Italy

Taught courses to all levels of proficiency to students from all over the world and with different mother-tongues applying the most recent techniques in language teaching.

Worked in team with other teachers for the organization of the Summer School and took part in the programming of the courses.

Adapted the kind of activities chosen and the themes to match the purpose of the course, focusing, for example, classes for immigrants on how to understand important documents and practices of everyday life in Italy and helped the students to move and act independently.

Organized with a group of colleagues the certification exams (CILS) and held preparation courses for a successful outcome of the same exam for each level of proficiency.
