I have taught for over 40 years in general and I have been an Italian teacher in London for Cactus since 2005. I teach Italian at the Cactus centre in Holborn.
I have been living in London for about 25 years.
I was born in Dolianova, which is a city near Cagliari on Sardinia.
I have a diploma in teaching as well as a degree in law. I teach children as well as adults and I have taught in private schools as well as Latin and English, apart from Italian, to my students.
Yes, I work part time in an Italian law firm. And funny enough, sometimes my students need some legal advice concerning Italian law and they even become clients.
I love spending my time going to the theatre and the cinema but also travelling. I also like writing and I published a book in Italy in 1999. When my students reach the Intermediate level I give them a copy for free so they can practice and enhance their Italian with authentic Italian literature.
I would say that I have a passion for teaching. I really like having big groups with continuous students and I try to not only teach the language but also the culture, including history, geography and art. I am even doing a project where I am taking students with me to Italy and teach them Italian while actually experiencing the culture and the country.
It evolved in primary school already when I taught reading to my cousins and sisters. I guess I was just born to be a teacher.
I’m looking forward to seeing you on my course.
