CIAO e BENVENUTO/A!
Are you planning on coming to Italy on holiday, business or studies?
Would you simply like to know more about this wonderful country?
Do you know enough Italian for daily life... to go shopping, to reserve a hotel room or to request a table at the restaurant?
I'm Italian, 34 years old, and I'm a qualified Italian teacher (Ditals Certificate, University of Siena). I work in a school for foreigners and as a private (in person and via skype) teacher in Florence.
I have a Masters degree Philosophy and Italian and a languages high qualification (English, French, German).
I took my first degree at the University of Padova but I finished my studies in Paris and Nice where i worked for a cultural center, as Italian teacher and tour guide.
I moved to Florence five years ago, because I love this city. Here I worked as a researcher (University of Florence), student advisor and Italian, History and Philosophy teacher.
I also worked in Finland as an Italian teacher for a few months.
A very exciting thing for me in the last 8 years has been sharing my knowledge with my students: it's fantastic and I’ve found that teaching Italian to foreigners has has led me to renewed appreciation of my own language and culture.
