I am a passionate foreign language tutor with over four years of teaching experience. After graduating in 2014, I have been living and working in London as a full-time tutor.
I always tailor each lesson to my students` individual needs and personal interests and I use my experience to develop engaging lesson plans, aiming at awaking students` interest and motivation. My communicative approach enables students to develop confidence quickly and to use the language effectively in a variety of situations. To keep sessions engaging and stimulating I use games songs, videos and authentic materials such as films or newspaper articles, which enable students to come into contact with relevant cultural aspects related to each language. I am committed to raise childrens achievements and help them improve their grades: almost all my GCSE students achieved an A or an A* in their final exams in June 2018.
I hold a Masters degree with distinction (110/110 magna cum laude) in modern foreign languages, issued by the University of Turin (Italy), and a TIAFL `Teaching Italian as a foreign language` certificate from the Italian Cultural Institute, London.
