I am a qualified and experienced native teacher of Italian. I currently spend most of my time teaching Italian and French to kids in a secondary school and I like being constantly up-to-date on teaching methodologies. Passionate about languages and diversity, I developed a specific know-how in motivating and orienting students, as well as in detecting their personal needs in language learning. In my classes, the student is the real manager of his own learning, starting from his goals, passions, skills and weaknesses. I love making my lessons fun and interactive so everyone can benefit from using the language in a positive and stimulating environment.
Ciao! My name is Emanuela, I am an Italian teacher with a Master Degree in Italian Linguistics at the University of Rome Sapienza and a PCGE in Classics. Thanks to my academic specialty in the field of the language learning, I developed a great passion for teaching Italian as a second language to any level and age learners. Since than I have never stopped teaching my language to a wide range of students. I always try to adapt my teaching methods to the real students’ needs and I always keep learning from them.
