Su di me

Ciao! My name is Giorgia, I come from Rome and I am an experienced Italian teacher. I have a degree in Italian Literature and Linguistics and together we will discover the beauty and the secrets of this fascinating language.

My background: I studied Latin and Ancient Greek in high school. I graduated from RomaTre University in Italian Literature and Linguistics. During the BA I won the Erasmus scholarship to study in the UK for a year. While in England, I also taught Italian language to Beginner and Intermediate university students. I recently got my MA in Applied Linguistics from UCL. I live between Rome and London and Italian and English are my two languages. This summer I attended the DITALS course to qualify as a teacher of Italian as a foreign language. I am currently teaching Italian online and through home tuition.

Teaching philosophy: Teaching, to me, is not only a job, it's a genuine passion. I have fun designing the material and it's a pure joy being able to help you reach your goals. I personally believe that teaching is a service, not a favour. Therefore, I take this job humbly and enthusiastically. My main goal is that the lesson represents an hour of your day where you can escape and virtually travel to a different reality. This is how I felt when studying English and I hope you'll feel the same when studying Italian with me.

***

Why study Italian with me? Italian may seem quite intimidating at first but you’ll soon realise that with the right method nothing is impossible. I adopt a communicative and inductive approach. That is, with me you will acquire the language naturally like you did with your first language. I am very accomodating and will try my best to tailor the lessons to your needs whether it is studying the language from scratch or having to improve your speaking or writing skills.

***

What materials will be used? I like to desgin the materials that will be employed during the lessons according to the student's level, interests and needs. Should the student prefer it, I can solely adopt a textbook. The material will always be sent before the lesson commences so as to leave some time to the students for reading texts and possibly print it. After the lesson instead, I will provide a thorough feedback that should help the student revise some difficult aspects of the language (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation etc.).

I am an easy-going, friendly and reliable teacher but I expect commitment and seriousness from my students. We’re here to have fun together but also to respect each other’s time.
So, I look forward to meeting you all and starting to learn some Italian! Request your first trial and get ready to visit Italy soon!
