PROFILO:

Insegno dal 1992 inglese, francese, spagnolo e italiano LS e L2; ho lavorato e


lavoro con utenti di tutte le età e livelli (dalla scuola dell’infanzia all’università,
dal livello A1 al livello C2), sia in contesti scolastici sia in ambito lavorativo in
vari paesi europei (Italia, Francia, Spagna, UK). Dal 2008 ricopro ruoli di
coordinatrice e direttrice didattica in scuole di lingue.
Lavoro avvalendomi di metodologie all’avanguardia, collocando lo studente al
centro del processo di apprendimento e preparando materiali formulati in base
alle specifiche esigenze che via via emergono.
Ho sviluppato negli anni un metodo per la trasmissione delle lingue agli
studenti più giovani (tre/dodici anni) legato alla mia attività di Storyteller, che
porto avanti dal 1994.
La mia priorità come docente è favorire un ambiente in cui il discente si senta
accolto e incoraggiato ad avventurarsi nel percorso di apprendimento.

Collaboro con importanti case editrici ricoprendo ruoli di editor, traduttrice e


autrice.

ensure an environment filled with positivity and joy where people feel comfortable, safe and engaged.
Teaching skills:
My aim is to help my students to become independent learners, by immersing them in the target language and
encouraging them to adopt a hands-on approach to language learning.

Learning is what keeps a teacher alive.
I still believe I can make a difference.
