italki teacher since Aug 23, 2022
My name is Iginia. I am from Naples, Italy, and I live in Gothenburg, Sweden.
In Naples I took my bachelor’s degree in foreign languages and literatures, with a focus on German and Swedish. During my bachelor I lived in Berlin as an exchange student for one year and after that I moved to Sweden where I took a master’s degree and a PhD in German contemporary literature.
Besides my interest in languages, I love reading, studying, watching movies, and travelling. I have many other interests, like painting, knitting and crocheting. I love interacting with others and learning about different cultures.
Me as a Teacher
I began teaching Italian as a native speaking teacher in 2012. During the years I focused more on teaching German literature and language at university, I worked as high school teacher in German and Swedish as a second language and I took different training courses concerning language teaching, pedagogy and didactic.
I see myself as a very patient and understanding teacher, who likes to explain, help, and try and try again until we reach our goals. As a teacher, I always think that I have a lot to learn from my students and I see teaching as a great opportunity to meet new people, share competences, interests and experiences and learn more about the world.
My lessons & teaching style
Every student has different learning styles, therefore I do my best to adapt my methods to the needs and profiles of everyone. I like to work with different types of materials: textbooks, text documents, audio and video files, homework. If you are a beginner, I like to cover topics such as family, friends, work, interests, feelings, travelling, daily activities, food, transportation. If your competences are more advanced, I usually focus more on conversations regarding topics of your own interests. I can also help with more practical stuffs like writing CV and job applications. I also love to teach, discuss, understand and analyse the language by reading novels, books, and songs text.

Iginia is a great teacher. Her lesson preparation is excellent - she provides lesson plan as well as extra material for in-class and self-study. She speaks the dialect and is very knowledgeable about Neapolitan grammar and phonetics. Overall it's a pleasure working with her.
