As a native speaker of German and Italian, born and raised in Munich and Rome, I have been teaching both languages for the past 10 years. Although I do not possess a diploma of a teacher, my study experience among foreign students and my experiences giving language classes to several children in German and Italian, aged from 3-18 allowed me to practice my pedagogical skills by giving private classes on a daily basis.
I started learning English as my second language at the age of 4. Up until today, I have been using it for study, professional and personal affairs.
My studies in Switzerland and the Netherlands , where I have completed the course of Academic Writing and Rhetoric, were also held in English
Besides the study experience, I have worked within the field of EU affairs in Brussels for the past 2 years, which have noticeably enhanced my professional English skills. I feel confident dealing with official documents and formal papers, including professional translation from English to Italian and German and vice versa
My students vary by age, country of origin and reasons to learn either German, Italian or English. I completely support the idea of having diverse ways of learning. I always try to make every class entertaining, yet highly educational. I usually ask to purchase a book which I choose for a student myself depending on a primary level or a specific goal (TOEFL, IELTS etc.), while adding complementary tasks.
Throughout my experience of teaching I have not met a single person who does not have an ability to learn a language. Hence I believe there is no excuse to be made, especially in today's reality where speaking English has become a requirement, not an extra skill.
Speaking of English, I have helped translating the documents, taking the interviews and writing political articles for different blogs. . In addition, throughout my last internships in Brussels, I have dealt with German-English/German-Italian/Italian-English translations on a daily basis, managing the projects and official papers, taking interviews and helping with the update of the website.
In regards to Italian and German, I have taught several students and children to pass various lanuage certificates at the Goethe Institut and CELI for Italian language.
