Since graduating four years ago with a Bachelor of Language degree I have developed many valuable skills while teaching diverse students including both children. I am adept at individualizing students' different needs and designing resourceful lesson plans that accommodate differing learning abilities and interests.
I enjoy being creative and utilizing new ideas and approaches to improve the learning environment for my students. I have incorporated a variety of hands on activities, fun manipulatives and learning projects to inspire and motivate the students.
I am passionate about empowering students and helping them to develop their full potential. Part of this process includes close interaction with them to encourage and reinforce learning in the home while building the student's self esteem and confidence.
Very good tuition. I am an unusual client for most Italian teachers, as I already speak quite a bit of Italian, having Italian parentage. I am also training for the Catholic priesthood and need to learn Italian to the level where I can study at one of the Papal universities in Rome. Selvaggia has stepped up to the plate, tailoring lessons to my requirements and working with me to ensure that I get the kind of coverage of grammar, syntax and so forth which I need to continue my studies. Well recommended.
