I am Helena and I am an Italian Native Tutor from Italy. I currently live in LA. My education is related to the international communication and marketing field. In 2008 I got a Bachelor's Degree in Foreign Language and International Communication at the University of Catania, Italy and In 2011 I got a Master's Degree in Brand Management and Communications at the IULM University in Milan, Italy. I have worked for different companies, in Italy and abroad, in the communication and marketing field. From 2013 to 2015 I have worked in a Hospitality Consulting Agency in Catania, where I was in charge of the communication and online marketing strategies, after this experience I decided to move to US, San Diego, in June 2015 and I worked in a Marketing Agency as Social Media Manager for almost 2 years. I am Italian native speaker and in addition to my primary job in marketing I have been worked as Italian teacher for the past 8 years. I tutor both online, through skype or other platforms, and in person, with students of different background, languages and ages. I teach one to one classes and also group classes, from 2 people to groups of several people. I have worked in Italy, France and US. I started teaching foreigners friends who lived in Catania, my city, and who wanted to learn the language while living there. I continued in France and US with French and American people who wanted to learn italian mostly to travel to the country and be able to speak the language. I found it a very interesting and educational experience and I kept doing it for many years. My knowledge and skills with teaching come from my degree in foreign languages and also from many years of teaching during while I did a lot of researches and studies about italian language and I also followed several seminars, conferences and online courses to get trained as a teacher. I love teaching and I will be happy to develop my students language skills and unlock their best potential!
