italki teacher since Jul 14, 2021
I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Communications from Boston University and besides a teaching background, I also have a sales and marketing background. When I have free time I love travelling, reading, writing, cooking, sports, and just being outside. My parents are both from Italy so I grew up speaking Italian and English in the house and am currently learning Spanish. I love meeting new people, speaking to them and learning more about their culture and experiences.
Me as a Teacher
I've been teaching English for 4+ years both online and in person. Thanks to my Italian background and the fact that I'm actively studying Spanish, I know firsthand what students need to do to learn a language! I encourage my students to relax and speak as much as possible - we all make mistakes.
My lessons & teaching style
I use a conversational style teaching approach and after one or two lessons with my students, I begin to identify where and how they can improve and how I can help the most. This can include grammar exercises, vocabulary, reading together, pronunciation, exercises from ESL textbooks, and more. While I do want my students to apply themselves not only just with me, but also on their own to improve, the most important thing we all need to remember when learning a language is to have fun!
