EducationDiploma in Education and Social Science
BA/MA of Foreign Languages and Literatures (Italy)
PhD in European Intercultural Studies
Master of Teaching (Secondary) (Australia)
Over ten years of experience both in academic (University of Urbino -Italy and Macquarie University-Sydney) and private institutions (Dante Alighieri Society, Centro Studi Italiani, La Lingua Language School and Language Trainers) plus freelancing in Italy and Australia.
My classes are proficiency-based which means they are student-centered and build upon what students need, already know, and can do. They respect diverse learning styles while encouraging the development of a wide range of skills and learning strategies. Besides the traditional approach to learning a second language (grammar based), I highly value the use of different media (movies, music, contemporary magazines and newspapers, role-plays etc) to actively engage the students in interesting discussions and topics.
I can also help anyone who is going to travel to Italy with travelling tips and useful information.
ESL/IELTS and TOEFL:
TOEFL IBT : 114/120 (October 2012)
Overall score : 8.5/9 (June 2014)
I have been teaching English Language and Literature at Urbino University and as a private tutor.
I can help students of any proficiency to improve their written and spoken English. I can also help you to prepare for TOEFL and IELTS.
