Teaching Philosophy:

A teacher is a medium, a bridge between students and the knowledge of a specific subject and we are not better or worse than our students.

A new language is the tool to face another culture, discover other ways of life, deal with different people and their differences, in order to better understand ourself.

Favorite Teaching Moments:

When I can feel the students’ enthusiasm of attending my class and I can see them playing with italian words in order to make sentences intentionally funny.
