Gabriella uses the theme of travel to teach you Italian language in her classes, from booking to sightseeing through Italian medieval villages, to sunbathing at the seasides. Graduated in English grammar and Literature in Italy, she now works as a TA in a primary school, and has taught Italian language and literature since her arrival.
I am an Italian teacher with background studies in Latin and Greek languages and Classical literature. I have obtained a Master degree in Classical languages and a Master of Art in UK in Classics. I am an enthusiastic teacher with experience in teaching Italian language and Italian literature. I also taught Latin and Greek in secondary schools.
I am a native Italian speaker, also fluent in English and Spanish. I was always passionate about languages, and took a Master’s Degree in Modern Languages in Italy and then decided to move to the UK where I have taught Italian for adults at Portsmouth College and offered Italian and Spanish private tuition. I studied for the PTTLS qualification during this time. After a break to look after her children I am now enjoying teaching at Language Class.
