English as a Second Language CELTA certified Instructor & Italian Language and Culture Instructor
italki teacher since Feb 7, 2022
My name is Claudia and I am a certified Instructor of Italian as a Second/Foreign Language and a Cultural Facilitator from Italy. I am also a CELTA certified Instructor (Cambridge Assessment English) and I teach English as a Second Language to adult learners of any level of proficiency.
Being truly keen on languages and literature, I studied Latin, Greek, German, and Spanish; I also collect hundreds of books, read extensively, and travel as much as I can. I have many other passions, such as music - I play electric guitar and hold a degree in Blues Rock - and I love cooking - I am a certified "Pizzaiola".
Me as a Teacher
I have been tutoring both in person and online for almost 10 years since I graduated from the University of Padua, Italy, in 2012. I hold a Master’s degree in Philosophy (History of Philosophy and Ethics), and a Master’s degree and credential in Teaching of Italian to foreign learners on top of a Certificate of Proficiency English C2 (Cambridge Assessment English) and a CELTA certificate for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
My lessons & teaching style
My work experience ranges from Higher Education, to Adult Education and Middle and Elementary Education.
As a passionate language Instructor, I developed my own syllabus, grammar and teaching materials and I refined my passion for e-learning, online platforms, tools and technologies that enable me to deliver a flexible and tailored learning experience to all of my students.
So, if you need any help at any level of proficiency both in Italian and English, or you need to pass a specific test and obtain a certification, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be glad to tutor you and help you succeed.

I need more Stars and more adjectives to describe my experience with Claudia. I’m so glad I came across her profile. She’s the example teaching through motivation.
