Experienced Native Teacher to Progress Rapidly in Italian


An Experienced and Dedicated Native Italian Teacher


Experienced And Dedicated Native ItalianTeacher Buongiorno !  Sono Eleonora Vieri.

I am very happy to meet you from all over the world and to welcome you to the beautiful   place where I live in Castiglione del Lago in Umbria, on the magnificent shore of the LagoTrasimeno. When we speak, later on, I will be glad to learn a few  things about you, where you live, and what you do.

So, let me introduce myself and tell you  a few things about me.

My Passion

I have always been very curious about the world and more specifically about the people that live in countries I was  dreaming to discover.  Loving my country as I do, I would like to share the culture and history, the art and beauty, the food and wines and the wonderful quality of life we have here.

And for the past 15 years, I’ve been so fortunate to do just  this. I’ve been teaching Italian as a foreign language to people from all over the world, of all ages and backgrounds. This work has enlightened me, and I hope I have done the same for them. Actually, I know  I did, as you will see in the testimonials somewhere on the site.

My Training

After graduating in Linguistics in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature Studies , and obtaining the Certificate DITALS II (Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language), I  started as Portuguese tutor at the Centro Linguistico of Ateneo ( University of Perugia ), before starting to teach Italian as a foreign language at the Accademia Lingua Italiana Assisi in Perugia. My professional field has always involved  languages.Castiglione

My Experience

I am presently teaching in a private school of Italian for Foreigners in Italy.  I have been  working with  beginners  as well as intermediate and advanced students.  I have always taught to very small groups or on an individual basis. My students are college students sent   abroad  by their university  as well as professionals, or retired people and even  diplomatic personal  sent by their embassy in nearby Roma to  rapidly achieve a good  level of fluency in the Italian language. 

Passionate, Experienced and Dedicated Teacher

For quite a few years now, I’ve also been teaching as well on the net through Skype since it  allows me to keep the  direct and responsive connection  so  essential to get my students to progress efficiently. I have been told I am a passionate, experienced and dedicated teacher,  I stay open to suggestions and demands  in order to accommodate my students  so that I can offer  them the best opportunity to progress.

In addition, I have to say that this  enriching process  works both ways;  a few years ago one of my students got me interested in oenology.  I followed his advice and   soon became as passionate as he told me I would be: I have just graduated with a degree of Sommelier and am now teaching at the school – in italian of course – , a module designed to help  our students  discover the wonderful wines we have here in Tuscany and Umbria!

My thrust for sharing has also extended to cooking – including eating in good company, –  and our  animal friends as well.
