- Do you have a personal message for students?
Learning a language can be fun: just adapt it to whatever interests you have and I will be glad to arrange my teaching around that. I have taught Italian in museums by looking at paintings. I have taught Italian in my students' kitchens while cooking risotto together. I teach by using games, newspapers, articles and anything that can help my students understand the culture and traditions of the country whose language they are learning. Grammar is a very important part of any language but do not let grammar hold you back: use it as a tool for whatever you want to say!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching one-to-one and groups for a few years now. My own ability and enthusiasm for languages and my enjoyment of the teaching process have been compounded by my own early experience as a learner of English.
