Before moving to London a few years ago, Maria Vittoria worked in private and public schools in Italy for over three years, teaching Italian, English, French and Spanish. She is an experienced tutor with an extraordinary ability to retain lasting student-tutor relationships; some of our students have been learning with her for a few years now. Since she started to teach in London, she has been working with both adults and children and is familiar with the Italian GSCE and A-level exam requirements. She also teaches in after-school clubs, organized by the Italian Education Department and the Italian Consulate. Maria Vittoria speaks Italian, French, English and Spanish fluently.
Maria Vittoria’s message:
“Enthusiasm and passion are the driving forces behind my job. I always wanted to be a teacher. This is why my academic background is fully focused on pedagogy, psychology, lesson planning and assessment. But if the background is important the on-going training is essential. For this reason I always attend conferences, workshops and all the training opportunities available, to improve and strengthen my knowledge and my skills. I truly love teaching and I always do my best to plan the lesson and to work together with my students. Each learner is different and every lesson is a discovery. This is why I always adapt my teaching style, to meet the different needs and preferences of my students. I love engaging them and helping them to learn and to discover new things about the Italian language and culture, using a variety of activities and resources. My priority is to make each lesson interesting and enjoyable.”
