I am a native Italian speaker studying Geography at the University of Glasgow and I've done an exchange at the University of Toronto.


In Glasgow, I have been working since 2017 as an Italian tutor, teaching my language to students from different nationalities and with any sort of backgrounds.


I also have a classical background. Studying Latin and Ancient Greek for five years at Liceo Classico (high school), I learnt grammar and acquired a deep knowledge of classical literature and culture. I am enthusiastic about sharing what I know and about having friendly relationships with students.


In the past years, I volunteered in a primary school (Scuola Primaria Villaggio Lamarmora, Biella, Italy) and I worked as the assistant of the teacher in drama courses for children at ‘Opificio dell’arte’ (Biella, Italy). In 2017 I volunteered in a mission in Peñas, Bolivia, teaching Maths to local students. During these experiences I learnt to understand the different needs of students, both younger and older. I really like helping people and learning something from them!


I also enjoy studying languages myself: I speak Italian, English and Spanish and I am studying Portuguese and Catalan. Therefore, I understand what people can find difficult both in grammar and in conversation.

About my sessions

I will help students using the teaching techniques I have developed teaching around the world. I love to make my classes fun and entertaining. In the past, I have used games, online interactive exercises and always a lot of conversation. I always adapt my classes to what the student's interests are and to what they want to focus more. For example, if a student loves cinema, I am always happy to recommend good Italian films!

I will measure progress by taking notes of students' le...

I will help students using the teaching techniques I have developed teaching around the world. I love to make my classes fun and entertaining. In the past, I have used games, online interactive exercises and always a lot of conversation. I always adapt my classes to what the student's interests are and to what they want to focus more. For example, if a student loves cinema, I am always happy to recommend good Italian films!

I will measure progress by taking notes of students' level each lesson, both in spoken and written Italian.

I love to encourage my students by showing them the infinite opportunities given by speaking a foreign language. I am really passionate about Italian culture and I love to share this with people from all over the world.
