Engaging and active Italian lessons in Leeds from Italian Native Language with Teaching Experience.

Methodology

Every lesson, every class, every student is different. Depending on course, level, goals, age, background, and many other: I will consider all the different aspects and plan a lesson that is goal focus and yet engaging for my students.
The following should be considered for lesson planning: Know who your students are. Know ability levels; backgrounds; interest levels; attention spans; ability to work together in groups; prior knowledge and learning experiences; special needs or accommodations; and learning preferences.
Having set a goal for the lesson is very important.
A lesson is a unified set of activities that focuses on one teaching objective at a time.
I usually plan a lesson in base at the information I have (see above) and then set an elastic lesson which is going to be set in 5 steps:

- Engaging the class
- Set a goal-task (usually practical and motivating)
- Give the instrument for learning
- Create a team-work
- Checking the skills learned with test and activities

Knowing the aim of the single lesson is vital: if don’t’ there might be the risk that the students will leave the class with the feeling that they haven’t achieved anything.

Experience

I am native Italian with a Master degree in Art, Philosophy & Media Languages, achieved with a First.
I have long term Teaching Experience to single persone (1:1) and groups of different ages.

I am also fluent in English and French; specialises in managing students and maximising learning opportunities in diverse classroom settings. Extensive travel, study, and residence experience across Europe (Italy, France, UK), make my lesson open, active, engaging and creative.

TL;DR:
- Met at language exchange website
- Personalised/customised approach
- Balances grammar, speaking/listening, reading/writing according to learner's goal
- Lovely, chatty (perfect for speaking practice), attentive
- Helpful homeworks
- Dedicated in class, and outside of classes
- Will respond outside of class when possible

Met through the Languages Exchange website (I said I wanted to learn Italian on the website so Italian tutors could reach me). Mari reached out to me with a lovely and very detailed email telling me how she likes to do her tutoring, and asking questions that would help her tailor sessions to me. The personalisation and interest was what made me go with her as a tutor!

Very chatty, good balance of grammar, speaking/listening and writing/reading. I'm currently trying to focus on speaking, but she complements it well with the other areas. Happy to give feedback and I don't feel judged (trying) to speak Italian with her! Mistakes become funny instead of stressful, and is flexible with giving feedback to mistakes or letting them go depending on confidence levels.

She's been flexible on homeworks, too. On busy weeks won't do much, but if I want more to do she's provided more challenges and also marked a lot of it before classes.

Overall a good experience to my learning Italian!

She is very helpful and patient. Well travelled throughout Europe, she understands the cognitive process of the language learner and her fluency in English enables her to quickly help you out when you get stuck! Very supportive and encouraging.

Lea

Maria is the best Italian teacher! She is very enthousiastic and passionate about teaching. She is kind and patient. Not only she shares language tips but also gives you an insight into the Italian culture. I recommend her 100%!
