Native Italian speaker teaches Italian to all levels (food pearls come along with the lesson!)

Methodology

When I teach I like to get to know my students and discover their interests in order to tailor the lesson around those, because I think that motivation and curiosity for the subject are essential for an easy and succesful learning. I try to create a relaxed and informal environment so that my students feel at ease and overcoming some blocks ( "I don't like this subject!"; " I hate my teacher!"; " I have taken so many courses and I still am not able to talk") becomes easier.

I combine speaking with grammar with listening to songs and audios, watching videos and movies; and whenever it's possible I include games in my lessons.

Experience

I have been teaching for the last 11 years, since I graduated from college. I studied Foreign Languages and Literatures (English and Spanish) and I have a post-graduate Master in Teaching of Italian as a Foreign Language.

I have experience with students of all ages, from primary school to adults, and also with dyslexia. I have taught Italian for one year in Australia in 2008-09 for a Dante Alighieri Institute and in Italy I have taught foreign languages (both English and Spanish) to Italians and Italian to foreigners, mainly in private courses and one-to-one lessons and for some short periods also in Italian public schools.

I have been travelling and living in different countries since I was 18. I love staying outdoors, hiking ans skiing. I like nature and its slow pace. I practice yoga and meditation and sometimes I include breathing techniques in my classes to help students go through their learning anxiety.
I love connecting with people and I am a very good listener and observer.

Goodmorning everyone,

Has an effective and fun teaching method.

Maddalena used to be my english teacher when she lived in Italy. She is very experienced, sensitive and attentive.
She always searches the best way to teach languages, the one that suits the student and his peculiarities.
I would highly recommend her!
