Teaching Qualifications and Experience

I am specialized both in English teaching methodology (from 1976 to 1990) and in Italian teaching methodology (from 1995 to nowadays)- I was responsible for the Italian language for foreigners programs in the Dante Alighieri Society Committee in Verona for 5 years. I've been teaching Italian to foreign students of all ages coming from many different countries since 1995, both small groups and one-to-one tuition. My students come from different professional fields. My Italian pronunciation has no regional accent. I love my job as it gives me the chance to meet people of different cultures.
