    Teaching Approach

    I have lived in Italy as an adult for 30 years. I have "real" experience of the Italian language as it is spoken and used at all levels of society and in business. I strongly believe that learning about the "cultural" aspects of the language/peop le is fundamental to better understanding and successfully using the language.
    I have taught children from the age of 3 years old, through young people, up to highly motivated very much older learners.
    Ea ch lesson is based on student/s needs, using materials (books, audio, visual prompts) gathered over many year's experience.
    In small-group lessons, each participant is expected to produce real language (based on ability level) in interacting with other participants.
    An agreement about "homework" is reached with each individual or group.

    Program Description

    Lessons take place in a dedicated classroom based at teacher's premises. Lessons may be formal, informal, individual or small group.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Teaching hours may be negotiated with each participant/g roup. As all lessons are held on private premises, hours are offered throughout the day from starting 9.00am and ending before 8.30pm.
    Less ons/sessions are usually held once a week at the same time. However, for urgent/intens ive learning, lessons may be scheduled twice a week. It is also possible to arrange daily lessons, depending on the time-slot.
    P ayment for first lesson/sessio ns should be made in cash/cheque on the day.
    Payment for 10 hour blocks should be made by direct deposit or in cash/cheque. Blocks of 10 hours may be used over a period of time but over not more than 15 weeks.
    I have worked with a variety of needs, but have noted that regular lessons/sessi ons are most effective in achieving a consistent learning experience and linguistic results.
