Baltimore + Online. Native Italian Teacher. Energetic and knowledgeable teacher, with 15 years’ experience with students of diverse backgrounds, ages and nationalities, in a variety of urban settings

Methodology

There are various teaching strategies and methods that I have used with my students. My preferred one is based on maximizing the use of Italian language in the lessons, reducing the emphasis on grammar. I therefore give more responsibility to the pupil to try and work out grammar structures and vocabulary for himself/herself/themselves. I encourage my pupils to speak in Italian at all times. Activities for this may simply include questioning, reading passages out loud, or role playing. I find that role playing is always fun as it encourages students to think outside of the box and use their imagination to produce an interesting dialogue.

I have been studying Italian with Mirella for 9 months. Mirella is an excellent professional teacher in all respects; she is encouraging but appropriately challenging. She is extremely well prepared, reliable and knowledgeable. Her gentle and encouraging teaching manner has enabled me to find learning Italian much less daunting, and her sense of fun and humour has made the learning process fun. Through her help my Italian contacts have commented on how well I now pronounce Italian.

She demonstrates a thorough understanding of my learning needs, and is able to adapt easily to whether I need encouragement with conversational Italian, or help with more formal grammar teaching.

I have found her to be a teacher of the highest standards and could not have wished more from a teacher. Quite simply, I could not recommend her highly enough.
