Methodology

My lessons are student-centered providing you with a learning experience that focuses on what you value.

I incorporate engaging authentic materials (video clips, articles, music etc.) to keep my lessons as interactive and stimulating as possible.

Lessons focus on a range of age-appropriate topics that will help you to expand your vocabulary, practice different grammar tenses and to improve fluency. If there's anything you would like to focus on just let me know. Whatever your needs, I teach grammar, vocabulary, listening, reading and writing.

My teaching style is fun and passionate. I have experience teaching children and adults and can adapt my style to suit your needs.

I have a lot of experience teaching beginners (A1+A2) from many different countries – Italy, Saudi Arabia, Brazil , China, the Czech Republic and Japan.

I have known Cecilia for over two years. In those two years I have known her to be a dedicated and passionate English Teacher. She approaches her lessons in a methodical way, you can be sure that the lesson will be efficient and well-planned. Cecilia is also kind and incredibly patient, which are invaluable qualities in a teacher. Cecilia is a linguist herself (speaking French and Italian fluently) and approaches her teaching with a true understanding of what it takes to learn a language. I would highly recommend Cecilia as an English Teacher.
