Italian qualified teacher with great experience gives Italian language and GCSE lessons in London

Methodology

Hi! Ciao! Salut! Hola! 你好!

My name is Michela and I come from Rome. I am a 31 years old linguist who has dedicated 2/3 of her life to language learning and teaching.

MY BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE:
I am a qualified language teacher in the UK secondary schools where I worked for 3 years. I also have several years of experience in teaching languages internationally in countries like Italy, Australia and China where I lived part of my life.
I am Italian native speaker and have a MA in Chinese studies. I can also speak Spanish, French and English fluently as I have been studying and teaching these subjects for several years. In addition, I have a great passion for cooking (especially Italian cuisine) and I consider myself to be very good at it!
I have experience in teaching Italian, Spanish, Mandarin, French and English as a second language to KS2, KS3, KS4 pupils and adults (teaching at school and private tutoring).

WHY AM I A GREAT TUTOR:
Having been a language student myself, I understand the struggles that students might have and am able to easily address mistakes and misconceptions.
I keep studying and researching psychology-pedagogy and teaching techniques in order to keep my skills up- to -date and to experiment always new ways to help my students learning at the best of their abilities.
I am very good in differentiating tasks, and I always work tailoring my lesson on students' level and needs in order to help students to improve.
I like making my lessons FUN (videos-movies-songs-games), not just for children/teenagers but also for adults- as it is proved that learning in a fun and stimulating environment brings great results (fluency in this case).
In schools, I have been often asked to help GCSE students 1:1 because judged to have brilliant explanation methods and held afternoon clubs to help for GCSE preparation leading to great results (with students' commitment of course).

ABOUT MYSELF:
I am very patient and smiley. I have an innate predisposition to teaching, and I am a very caring and competent towards my students. I consider myself hardworking, always trying my best about what I do.
I am very passionate about languages and travelling. In my opinion this makes me a very well prepared tutor as I can also help students reflect on cultural aspects which always give a better access to the language of study.
I love any type of creative activity, especially Italian cooking which I have been practicing since a little girl.
Besides teaching, I also have experience in other educational environments since I worked in Civil Services for one year and I have been a scout member for 12 years which 4 years as a scout leader; both these experiences helped me to develop a dynamic and enthusiastic personality as well as a strong adaptability to stressful and hard situations.

I highly recommend Michela as a tutor to anyone willing to learn Italian. She's a mothertongue, brilliant teacher who's been working with kids of different ages all over the world for years. Her attentive, kind, genuine attitude makes it incredibly easy to create a bond, both professionally and personally, with students.
If you're looking for a valuable tutor, Michela's definitely the right choice.
