Ciao! My name is Andrea and I am a native Italian with years of Italian language teaching experience, graduated from University of Rome.
I lived in London and Los Angeles for several years. Then I attended courses for teaching Italian as a second language. I have been teaching Italian language to foreigners for 4 years and it has been very satisfying so far.
Qualifications & Experience
Since I was attending primary school until I graduated from University I have always studied both Italian and English languages. After University I continued my studies attending courses for becoming a professional teacher of Italian as a foreign language and then started to work as a teacher abroad in London and LA. Today I am teaching mostly online, I really like this way of working: technology gave me the opportunity to reach all of my students living in different countries and continents. I love my job and I am passionate about it.
I teach Italian language to foreigners and it has been very satisfying so far. I give online lessons and also in person when the student lives in my own city, the beautiful Rome. I currently have many students who come from different countries like Netherlands, Brazil, USA, Russia, Poland, France, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Scotland, Switzerland, Ukraine, Belgium, Israel etc. Students who attend my courses work at professional level in ESA, FAO, UN here in Rome. Students who live abroad of Italy are doctors, smart entrepreneurs, artists, writers or very good and young students. They all need to learn Italian for both private / professional reasons.
I am highly qualified for improving your pronunciation, public speaking and oratory skills since I attended diction courses for longer than 5 years.
My students are the first to show me gratitude for the good results and improvements they achieve attending the course. They tell me enthusiastically about the successes achieved both at work and in private-daily life by learning the Italian language with me.
I always try to understand what kind of student I have in front of me, where he/she comes from and his/her age. The way I teach to kids is different than the way I use to teach to adults. I always try to meet the student's needs, guiding him/her gently. If the student needs to know more grammar I start my lessons teaching more rules, following a Structural approach: this means that I would start teaching the language as a complex of grammatical rules which are to be learned one at a time in a set order. Along with that it is possible to do some grammar translations to and from the target language and to practice some Audio - Lingual method (learning through the practice of dialogues of every situations). Only after all this I push the student towards a Direct method, that means that it is possible only to use the target language: the teacher explains everything using the target language only and the learner is not allowed to use his or her mother tongue.
When the student starts to speak fluently I like to focus more on the pronunciation, about the way he/she sounds practising with the student more conversation, analyzing his/her fluency, mental blocks or mispronunciation. The student has to sound as natural as possible after few months.

Italian and German teacher with a focus on self-confidence
I teach: Italian, German
Ciao! My name is Alice and I was born and raised in a small village in the North of Italy, near Venice. My passion for languages started at high... school, when I learned English, French and Spanish. Then I decided to focus on my second passion, that is literature, so I got a bachelor degree in Italian Literature. After my degree I moved to Berlin, where I learned German for a year. In Berlin I also understood that I wanted to become an Italian teacher, in order to combine my passion for languages with my interest for literature!So I moved back to Venice and now I’m attending a master degree in language sciences with a focus on language teaching, but I’m first of all myself a language learner, as I study German, which I can speak quite fluently now. If you are looking for a friendly and calm teacher that knows the struggle of communicating in a foreign language, you have found the right person! During my carrier as a language learner, I have acquired some skills that I can teach you, with a focus on overcoming the fear of speaking in a foreign language and I can also help you feel more confident when interacting with Italian native speakers. I can deal with different topics, but my main interests remain culture, literature, dialects and, naturally!, food. After a first free trial lesson, in which we would get to know each other, I can offer you a structured learning path, according to your needs, interests, learning objectives and learning style. The lessons will be mainly in Italian, but if some more explanations are needed, I can speak English, German and Spanish as well. I also teach German to Italian students, I have a Master degree on German. If you are interested or if you have any question, please don't hesitate to contact me, I can't wait to meet you!
