Rita graduated in Foreign Languages and Literature at the Sacred Heart University of Milan in 2004.
Rita has an extensive experience in the teaching of Italian as a second language or foreign language (SL/FL). During her carreer as a tutor, she has taught both at primary (Coogee Primary School, Annandale Primary School and Cranbrook School as part of the LOTE programme) and tertiary level (University of Sydney, UTS University, Co.As.It, Italian Institute of Culture and Dante Alighieri Society). She has also been running HSC courses.
With an interactive and communicative methodology students focus on the development of their speaking skills.Through practical exercises and fun games set in a ‘real’ context, students have a more dynamic learning experience and a more broaden knowledge of both the Italian language and culture!!!
Rita constantly attends professional development courses both in Sydney and Italy as they are always a great source of both inspiration and updates.
Teaching Italian constantly proves to be more than a job.It is a passion through which Rita can convey her love for her own culture, the Italian language and her skills as a teacher.
Rita offers courses and private tuitions for adults, corporate, intensive seminars focusing on grammar, culture seminars. Rita is also available for
translations, proofreading and help with academic essays/papers at negotiable rates in ALL Sydney area.
Rita can assist students going to Italy for study as she actively cooperates with many schools for foreigners in Italy. Thanks to this positive relationship, she also offers scholarships of two weeks to study in Italy.
