My lessons & teaching style
Seguo un approccio comunicativo e umanistico-affettivo. Alla fine di ogni lezione ti lascerò un pdf con un feedback molto dettagliato. Essendo appassionata alla Linguistica e allo studio delle lingue, sarò molto felice di mostrarti anche qualche retroscena della lingua e della cultura italiana.
I follow a communicative and humanistic-affective approach. At the end of each lesson, I will give you a pdf with detailed feedback. If you're interested, I would also be more than glad to show you some background of the Italian language and culture.
Eu sigo uma metodologia comunicativa e humanista-afetiva. Ao final de cada aula, vou deixar um pdf com um feedback bem detalhado.

I always look forward to my Italian lesson with Margherita. She is a wonderful teacher. Lessons are organized, interesting and prepared for my individual needs. After each lesson she provides notes that I find useful and which I like to review. She spends time and considerable effort preparing each lesson. But if there is a specific subject or grammar point I would like to review, she will help me with my interests.
Margherita provides great feedback, she is always supportive. I’m a shy person and have felt anxious when speaking Italian. Margherita has helped me tremendously with speaking and communicating in Italian. Non vedo l’ora per la prossima lezione con Margherita!

"Super ottimo!" as Margherita says. I'm super impressed by how consistently excellent she is. In particular, she is extremely motivating, professional, and passionate about teaching Italian.
Margherita immediately creates a welcoming and friendly ("cosy") environment at the start, which will leave you motivated and smiling the entire lesson. Feedback on mistakes is given gently, and she makes sure to highlight your strengths as well.
During the lesson, she is 100% focused on you, taking notes and listening closely. She is also excellent at rephrasing concepts in simpler terms if I didn't understand something the first time. After the lesson, she delivers her notes in a PDF summary of the lesson.
Lastly, her passion for teaching is evident from the start, and I can tell that she is super genuine and invested in her students. Even outside of lessons, she makes herself available for questions via DM.
Overall, I'm impressed with Margherita and look forward to many more lessons!

Wow! What an outrageously good lesson! I haven't used my Italian for quite some time, and Margherita made me feel perfectly comfortable from the outset. The lesson was very language focused, and her background in language pedagogy was obvious. At the end of a lesson she gave me a document with detailed notes on the lesson, including both things that I did well as well as new words and some points of grammar. Really, I don't think you could ask for a more professionally run or better lesson.
