This is Serena, I'm Italian, precisely from Rome.
I study languages since I'm eleven, that's why I speak fluently English, Spanish and Russian (с ощибками))). I'm graduated in Languages and Cultures and I'm currently studying a Master's degree in Modern languages for the international Communication.
As you can understand by my resume, I love languages and cultures, and I have a looot of experiences in learning.
Moreover, in 2018 after finishing the university, I took a gap year, and somehow I finished in Russia teaching foreign languages in a private school. I was there only three months, but it helped me a lot to understand what it means to be a teacher!
Me as a Teacher
I would like to understand how to make you reach your goal in the better way, also, I'm a real curious person, that's why I'm interested on try, discover and always improve.
I love to be in contact with my students and being more a friend that is teaching them something interesting, then "just a teacher".
My lessons & teaching style
I prefer focusing my classes on the dialogue, based on a text or on any topic you're interest in, talking, discussing about it. We gonna still do some exercises, and you will still receive homework :), but the focus is gonna be on the speaking, more than on the grammar. And I would be more than glad to talk about my country, if is this that you're searching for!
My main goal is to make you improve, that's why if you are on a starter level of Italian, we can use also a support language like English, Spanish or Russian, since I can speak them fluently.

Serena is a very good teacher. She is pleasant, patient and interesting to talk to. As well as chatting about day-to-day things, she gives me an article to read or a video to watch beforehand, and we discuss it in the lesson. She corrects me and helps me out when I struggle to say something, and she writes everything down so I can refer back to it later. If I can't understand a phrase she can explain it to me in English. Lessons with Serena are very enjoyable and instructive.

I had a really good first lesson with Serena. I was really happy that she had her own ideas and resources to help me learn and also asked me how I would like to structure the lessons. The conversation is fun and interesting. I will definitely be taking more lessons from her!
