ITALIAN Language and Culture - Difficult Made Easy with expert prof, Richmond and around

Methodology

Hi! I am an experienced teacher, PhD in Romance Languages, with a passion for teaching languages and culture. I taught all over the world and I also organize immersive tours in Italy. My special teaching method combines grammar with cultural aspects that we can find outside the classroom. Call me and find out how easy and fun speaking Italian will be!

Background

15 years of experience, teaching Italian in the USA, Spain, Greece, Italy to students of any age, and any level. My last experiences were in an American College (NY) for 12 years and in a secondary school in Spain. At the moment, I am teaching in several Adult Centres in the London areas.
