I have been teaching Italian for 3 years in British public and private schools. My students develop not only knowledge of the language but also understanding of the Italy. I am passionate about my country and I like to teach Italian for that reason! With a degree in teaching I have learn to use a variety of learning methods to best suite my students: mnemonic, musical or using movements. Languages don't need to be boring!

About Martina Z.

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.

The beginning lesson was fun and easy to follow. She did a good job of personalizing the content to match my current level of understanding. Looking forward to the next lesson with Martina!

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.
