About me
Ciao, come stati? I'm Rossana, I live in the center of Tuscany in a pretty, little village near Florence. I love my country, it's enchanting nature, friendly people, brillant works of art and delicious food. I learnt something about wine culture from my mother as she is a wine-taster. After working at the International Relations Office of Arezzo University and organizing cultural events (exhibitions, public readings, writing courses, etc.) for my region, I started teaching my mother tongue: Italian became my passion! I had many students from all over the world, many of whom are now very good friends. I taught them with optimism, reliability, and "lightness" (see American lessons by the great Italian author Italo Calvino), at the same time I learnt a lot from their stories in what was always a rewarding interchange and a truly multicultural atmosphere. If you also think that learning a language is a unique opportunity for personal enrichment, I will be very glad to include you amongst my students!
Qualifications & Experience
I studied Humanities and Foreign Languages (English and Spanish) at Florence University. At the moment I'm studing to be an official tourist guide of Florence. I have a profound knowledge of my country's Art and Culture. With this experience I work as a teacher, a translator and a tourist group leader, for foreign people who are on holiday in Tuscany (students from American universities too). I'm a qualified teacher, I took the Ditals diploma (diploma in teaching Italian as a foreign language) at Siena University and I have many years of experience in teaching my mother tongue in the classroom and on line. I teach both adults and children of all levels (from beginner to advanced, A1-C2), and to suit a variety of needs I arrange with the students a taylor-made syllabus. Moreover, I did a masters in Creative Writing at Siena University and a postgraduate specialization in Autobiography at Florence University, and sometimes I hold writing courses for foreign students with a high level of Italian. Some years ago I started doing yoga and currently I'm teaching yoga to children combining this passion with my interest in narrative and story telling.
Teaching Approach
I have a communicative approach to teaching Italian, whereby one starts speaking and expressing them selves from the very beginning. I combine comprehensive grammatical structures with enjoyable, interactive activities. Every activity is based on various and up to date methodology and involves the student actively. My goal is to improve all your liguistic skills: speaking, writing, listening and reading. My students tell me I'm patient, inspiring and always ready to answer their questions and doubts. If you want to enjoy Italian culture and language why not to arrange a trial lesson! Whatever age or level you are, whatever course you'd like to try (touristic, business, scholastic-university, sectorial, conversation...) I'm here to meet your needs!
