italki teacher since Feb 28, 2022
Hello everyone, my name is Matilda, I am 22 and I am a native Italian and German speaker! I am also completely fluent in English, as I have lived in the UK for 5 years now and have completed both a Bachelors and a Masters degree here. I am currently based in London, working as an intern at an innovative sustainable fashion brand.
My biggest interests include movies (I analyse a movie for hours after I have seen it), reading books (especially a good murder mystery), listening to music and dancing (I basically love every genre, but disco house might be my favourite), fashion (particularly sustainable brands) and finally food/cooking (risotto is by far my favourite dish)!
Me as a Teacher
I have experience in language tutoring, as I tutored 4 students in Italian, German and English during my final years of school. They all had different levels of language knowledge, which makes me confident in my ability to adapt to the level that you are at. Overall, it was an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding experience.
For your information, I only teach intermediate and advanced students :)
My lessons & teaching style
I believe that the best way to learn a language is to speak it and practice it. So, our lessons together will be conversational practice.
I like to have themed lessons. Before each session I will let you know which theme will come up and give you a small exercise to do in preparation. In our lesson I like to chat about the chosen theme, have some fun activities and games and also go over the exercise you prepared. I also enjoy doing some reading practice, where we can focus on pronunciation. Of course the format can be adapted to what you feel like suits your learning style best. I am looking forward to helping you on the exciting learning path that you have ahead :)

Matilda is an amazing person and a great teacher! She is very polite, patient and prepares well before every lesson. Before our first lesson she asked me about my level and needs and customized our lessons accordingly. I am very pleased as I feel our lessons have the right balance of listening, reading and vocabulary exercises as I had suggested at the begining. I truly appreciate that she is open to feedback and learning from her students too.I am so looking forward to learn more from her!

Ich habe die Stunde genossen. Mit Matilda kann ich auf Deutsch sprechen und die Erklärungen auf Italienisch bekommen. So kann ich beide Spräche üben. Danke Matilda.
