My teaching philosophy is based on fast-paced, communicative activities that force students to think quickly under pressure, helping them to start thinking in their second language rather than translating from L1, and helping them get over their fear of speaking - my priority is to help with oral expression, despite the fear of making mistakes.
I am a native Italian speaker with teaching experience in english, french, and Italian, teaching children, teens, and adults. I have been teaching for over 3 years, in 2 countries, and specialise in oral communication, focusing on critical and creative thinking to increase proficiency in conversation and debate.
