Im Caterina an italian teacher for foreigners. I love my country, my language, helping people interested in learning it and also discovering about italian culture, habits and way of living.
I live by the Adriatic coast beside the beach. During the morning i work in a school with teenagers and help them with italian. I love eating, learning languages, drinking good wine, discovering new cultures and meeting people.
i have always been passionate about languages , foreigner countries and cultures. I studied greek and latin at high school and Odyssey was my favourite greek poem.
Then i went to university in Bologna where i studied languages and literatures. After that, i decided to specialize in teaching italian to foreigners to combine my passion for languages, my italian origins and the discovering of the Other.
i have been working as a italian tutot for 6 years, in different schools and evening classes with teenagers and adults, in private lessons at home and on line since 2016.
I have also been volunteering for local associations that help immigrants arrived to Italy from African countries to learn the basics of italian to stay here and to get their residency permit.
I have experience teaching people all ages and nationalities. My teaching approch is various and depends on my student features but it's more based on communication.
For the first levels i start from the basis, verbs to be and to have, pronouns, articles and after every rule explanation i get you to fix it by doing exercises always under my attentive support.
From the beginning i will try get you to lose your strong accent or to pronounce properly every single word as if you memorize it correctly you will remember it that way!
For the upper levels we'll refine your coversation skills, will master the grammatical aspects in sentences and try to get you to become the more italian possible ;)
In any case im always open to suggestions and preferences from my students and my purpose is to create customized lessons for every student depending on their needs and interests. Im a friendly but professional person who loves her job and meeting new people from others countries as it always enriching and pleasant for me.
Impariamo italiano insieme !!!
