I am a qualified and experienced native teacher of Italian. I currently spend most of my time teaching Italian and French to kids in a secondary school and I like being constantly up-to-date on teaching methodologies. Passionate about languages and diversity, I developed a specific know-how in motivating and orienting students, as well as in detecting their personal needs in language learning. In my classes, the student is the real manager of his own learning, starting from his goals, passions, skills and weaknesses. I love making my lessons fun and interactive so everyone can benefit from using the language in a positive and stimulating environment.
Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Chiara and I do Italian! In the sense that I learn, teach, eat, sleep, breathe
Italian! I am CELTA qualified with a Bachelor's degree in Modern Languages and I am used to teaching
Italian at all levels. Languages were never really a thing for me until I decided to host American students
and share our experiences, cultures and traditions. Since then, it’s been a growing passion that has led to
me making Italian my business.
