During the first session, we discuss objectives and personal areas of strength and weakness. I have a wide range of supplementary material from which I encourage students to engage with depending on personal interests. For example: Spanish films, magazine articles, music and other popular culture media.
I base my classes on a combination of formal and informal teaching. I prioritize expression and fluidity over canonical knowledge of the language. Most of all, I want to give the student the tools to improve according to their own rhythm, needs and capacities. I personalize the topic to my student's needs.
Whether you need Spanish for work, for travelling or just for your own pleasure thanks to my lessons you will be able to use the language in real settings without fear.
I'm here to help you with whatever you might need, including:
- Spelling and punctuation
- Reading practice
- Conversation practice
- Spanish language studies / exams (including DELE)
- Professional proofreading/editing for business or academic needs.
I am an Italian native speaker who has been teaching Spanish to foreign speakers for more than four years. I have taught more than 20 students from all levels. I speak 3 languages fluently plus I translate from Latin. I got the diploma DELE nivel C2 few years ago and I have recently got the ELE certification as Spanish teacher. I also have a degree in Political Science and a Master degree in International Relations among other. I am very friendly, flexible and adaptable to your needs.
