I am an Italian living in Las Vegas since 2013. I have started teaching in 2010, first as an outdoor instructor and then as a language teacher in both private and state school in the UK, and as a private tutor in the USA. I am passionate about languages, in particular my mother tongue Italian, and Spanish, because they open new doors and allow for better communication and intercultural understanding. I aim to engage my students with a variety of teaching techniques to keep them interested, challenged and having fun!
I love the outdoors. I am a climber, ski instructor and a professional photographer.
Teaching placements during my Postgrad in Education
I thought languages in a prestigious British private school and organized and led trips and expeditions for them using foreign languages skills.
A post graduate degree in Secondary education, Specialized in Language Teaching from one of the top British Universities
Great first lesson. We covered a lot of ground from the beginning. Professional, knowledgeable, and accomodating to my specific learning level of Italian.
We have had a few issues with scheduling, my fault completely... however Martina has been extremely patient and I appreciate that. Today was my first lesson, and Martina was great. I felt Very welcome, and I felt Like she really understood what exactly I needed In a lesson. I recommend her absolutely.+ Read More
Great first lesson!
Martina is a fantastic instructor. She takes the time to explain things in a way that is easily relatable.
She explained everything thoroughly and made sure I was saying it correctly.
We stayed focused and I feel like we made lots of progress in just 45 minutes.
Martina is a fantastic teacher.
Professional and very patient! I know she will be great for my son.
Great. I was a little skeptical because Martina is from Trieste and my speaking is old Sicilian. But, it worked out very well. It will be a good time with her for the next few months before I return to Sicily later this year.
Martina is a fantastic native-speaking Italian language teacher who makes her lessons exciting and interesting. She has been very open and flexible towards catering to my specific needs as a student. I highly recommend Martina!
Excellent instructor. Very willing to adjust lesson based on needs and progress.
