I am a native language Professor and journalist graduated from the University of Bologna - Italy and I work with attorneys, university Professors as well as writers, doctors and opera singers (students reviews available on my profile). I am certain that my qualifications will only benefit you and I would be glad to help you master the Italian language.
I offer a method based on the centrality of the learner and on real communication.
I consider the language not merely a system of rules, but above all the main tool to communicate, comprehend and express oneself in real contexts. Naturally this method includes the study of the rules of syntax and grammar, as essential to Italian language learning, but which alone are insufficient for gaining a true command.
The students are encouraged to practice the language from the beginning in order to improve the linguistic skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in true-to-life communicative situations. The friendly and relaxing atmosphere encourages quick and easy learning of the language.
I suggest my students to buy a text book at the start of the course and, subsequently, I will enrich my classes with a wide variety of up-to date links, which will show the real use of the spoken language.
I teach via Skype, my lessons have a duration of 30 to 90 minutes, at the rate
of 1$ per minute. Other arrangements can be made according to the number of classes required.
