Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it... the time will pass anyway.
My name is Lidia, I'm a native Italian speaker currently living in Bergamo, in the north of Italy, but my career as italian teacher started in Mexico in 2004.
Since then, I have collected a lot of experience and developed a vast set of tools and materials to keep students motivation high.
I have a degree in Psychology with a social orientation of the job. My studies has had focused mainly in the context of intercultural communication, training and professional development.
I attended FILIM courses with the University Ca 'Foscari of Venice, an online training course for the teaching Italian as a foreign language,
My classes are always prepared with professionalism, commitment and enthusiasm.
PASSION is the key. Every lesson for me is a challenge.
The teaching of foreign languages has a very strong emotional component which it is necessary to know how to connect with, in order to obtain the cooperation of the students and good results.
I will help you to boost your languages skills. I do lessons from basic up to advanced levels. Lessons are customized according to your real level, interests, predispositions and even particular needs (conversation, drafting of texts, revision or recovery of an exam, preparation of CILS certifications, job interviews, etc.). I have experience organizing private, group and professional lessons.
I lived four years in Mexico, five in Romania and currently I am learning english to be able to communicate with you. So, I understand very well how hard is to start from scratch over and over. I know how frustrating is, not to be able to express yourself as you would like. Be patience and believe it. We’ll hardly work together, to achieve your goals!!!
