Hi, My name is Anna, and I'm from Venice in Italy.
I'm a bilingual Italian and English teacher and a freelance translator. I graduated in English language and literature at Ca' Foscari University in Venice, where I live with my family. I am studying to get a Postgraduate Master ITALS to teach Italian language to foreigners. My field of research is Psycholinguistics and Neurolinguistics to understand what happens in our brain when we study a new language.
I also have a CEDILS certification to teach Italian abroad. I've been teaching Italian and English since 2004. I work with students from all backgrounds, and my classes are for those who want to improve Italian communication, grammar, vocabulary and reading.
I focus on your needs, no matter what your level is and I work on your confidence because everyone of us is a learner and I know how it feels when you can't find the words.
My sessions are very personal because I think that each student is different and has a personal way to learn. I'll be very pleased to work with you and help you reach your goals. When I'm not teaching, I like travelling. I lived in London for some time and also in Liverpool while I was writing my thesis about the Scouse variety of English. I also speak Spanish and I'm a learner too, and I perfectly understand how hard it is to study a new language. So, book a class with me and we will learn a lot of new things together.

I just had my first lesson with Anna, and she was exceptional. She is friendly, non-judgmental, and obviously an expert on how to teach a language. She is thorough and practical, and I have every confidence that by the end of our sessions, I will have accomplished exactly what I was hoping to. I can then take the next step with new goals in mind. Thank you!

Anna is a wonderful tutor/teacher. She has a way of making you feel very comfortable and confident from the very beginning. Her classes are a nice mix of Italian culture, language structure, vocabulary and social awareness. I definitely recommend working with her if you are serious about learning Italian.
