My name is Ilaria, I'm from Milan and I'm an experienced and certified italian teacher for foreigners.
I'm a primary school teacher and I also hold
the DITALS certification of the university of Siena - Certification for teaching Italian as a Foreign Language.
In addition to this, I'm an experienced travel agent!
I've been teaching italian to foreigners for the last 8 years, working for different schools in Milan and abroad as well.
I have already been teaching online for 4 years.
I've been working with students of different levels, ages and background; immigrants,teenagers,kids, adults,seniors, students of university.
The main thing is that I love studying languages and teaching my language.
I speak english,portuguese and spanish.
I lived in Ireland where I worked as a teacher in a nursery school and I also lived in Lisbon where I worked in the tourism branch and taught italian to private students, in a social community and in cultural associations.
My lessons are focussed on communication.I speak italian from the first lesson and you will realize that this is possible even for a beginner!
Together with speaking the target language, I always include some reading, listening,vocabulary, writing and a focus on grammar rules that are explained starting from the spoken language.
I love using songs,images,games,role-plays,videos!
I'm looking forward to meeting you!
Lots of rainbows and a presto!
