Since very young I've always liked helping others and during the period of my academic language learning I realised that not everyone was as comfortable learning a new language as I was. At that moment i decided that I will help others learn languages in an easy way. It's also good to see someone progressing because of me, it makes me feel happy and satisfied. I can say, according to my school experience that many teachers focus almost exclusively on grammar, without trying to develop in the students conversational skills. I'm aware that grammar is quintessential when it comes to learning a new language but it's also true that it could be of little use if not implemented with conversation so in my classes I try to focus on both. I have a three years experience in tutoring and until now I've almost always relied on books provided by the student plus some books of mine, getting the help of the internet sometimes. In order for the student to learn new terms I ask them to translate their favourite songs and write the unknown terms on a workbook, in alphabetical order. My experience consists mostly in teaching kids and teenagers between the age of 6-20 and few adults.
I'm a very empathetic person and I always build the lesson according to the student's skills and level. I'm pretty patient and understanding, my students usually describe me as funny and cheerful.
