Über Mich

I am a native Italian speaker studying Geography at the University of Glasgow and I've recently finished my exchange at the University of Toronto.

I have a long experience working as an online Italian tutor on other platforms and I always got 5 star reviews from my students.
I have also worked as an English language tutor in Italy.

During my time in Glasgow, I worked as an Italian tutor, teaching my language to students from different nationalities and with any sort of backgrounds.

I also have a classical background. Studying Latin and Ancient Greek for five years at Liceo Classico (high school), I learnt grammar and acquired a deep knowledge of classical literature and culture. I am enthusiastic about sharing what I know and about having friendly relationships with students.

In the past years, I volunteered in a primary school (Scuola Primaria Villaggio Lamarmora, Biella, Italy) and I worked as the assistant of the teacher in drama courses for children at ‘Opificio dell’arte’ (Biella, Italy). In 2017 I volunteered in a mission in Peñas, Bolivia, teaching Maths to local students. During these experiences I learnt to understand the different needs of students, both younger and older. I really like helping people and learning something from them!

I also enjoy studying languages myself: I speak Italian, English and Spanish and I am studying Portuguese and French. Therefore, I understand what people can find difficult both in grammar and in conversation.
