Spanish Private Lessons

From March 2011

my students are beginner, so I start from basic knowledge of the language and going on step by step. I begin introducing the alphabet and how to read it, the accents, and some grammar, integrated with some exercises and readings. When I see my students improve, I start dividing my lessons between the study of the language and conversation. My interest is for Iberian Spanish, even if I like to show the differences between different varieties of the language.

in Autogrill Dorno, I was a bartender, desk and cash register. In a second time I worked at Spizzico, desk and cash register, in the restaurant cleaning the tables, in the shop managing the cash register. In Autogrill Assago I was a bartender too, or Spizzico operator or in worked in the warehouse and in the refrigerating rooms.


English Private Lessons

From April 2005

when my students are beginners I start teaching the structure of a sentence and nouns, combined with exercises to make it all clear and some readings; then I introduce grammar and conversation. Otherwise, I focus on their weaknesses and help them solving their problems with the language. Being that at school and at the University they've always taught British English while I've always had an interest for American English, I learnt them both, included their differences. I always suggest my students to watch movies in English with English subtitles.

Guitar Private Lessons

From February 2003

I divide my lessons between theory and practice. When my student is a beginner, like most of them, I start from basic knowledge and simple exercises, going on step by step. When my student is not a beginner, I focus on his skills and weaknesses, to correct mistakes and avoid them in the future.
