Summary

"Dynamic and experienced language instructor. In 2015, I obtained an honour degree in Modern Languages Culture and Communication (with a specialization in English and French), by the Autonoma University of Madrid. The living and working experiences in foreign countries, such as France, Spain and the UK, complemented my language training and enabled me to achieve my goal of becoming a fluent speaker of English, French and Spanish. In the last years, I have been engaging in language teaching, by means of social networks and on-line personal tutoring. My method consists in interactive and customized classes. Everyone has a different feeling and different attitudes for languages. My aim is to find the most enjoyable and personalised way for my students to learn. From my direct experience, I understood that motivation is the first factor that enables us to accomplish the complex task of learning a new language.  In order to complement my linguistic skills in MFL with a broader literary focus, in 2016 I obtained my MSc (with Merit) in Comparative and General Literature, by The University of Edinburgh. The Master degree enabled me to develop a critical understanding of the major topics that are presently debated within the subject of European Literatures. Presently, I am a PGCE student in the University of York, training to teach French and Spanish. Being a native Italian, I am entitled to teach also a third language, up to A-level students. Finally, having lived in Austria in 2014-2015, during my Erasmus Exchange in the University of Vienna, I have a good knowledge of German, and I would be keen to challenge myself and teach it to KS3 pupils.
