After graduating with a BA and MA in Translation and Interpreting for Specific Language Use I have perused my combined passion for the English language and teaching by completing a Licentiate Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) awarded by Trinity College London, in 2010. Since then, I have been employed as an English teacher at several schools in the UK, Italy and Germany.

Professionally, I continue to develop what has proven to be a successful style of teaching. By using a wide range of resources – from magazine articles to YouTube clips – I like to devise my own materials and to adapt them according to the students’ needs and interests.

I have experience in teaching all levels of ability, as well as in exam preparation and specific language areas, such as Business English.

Originally from Italy, and having lived amongst different cultures, I am able to get on well with people from all nationalities, this I believe to be essential for any teacher.  Also, as a non-native speaker I am well aware of the difficulties encountered by the learners, and I try to use this particular aspect of my formation to their advantage.
