About me

xWgDcohk I am an English language teacher working in northern Italy. I teach English in a private language school, where I’ve been working on my DELTA since September 2016.

I have been a freelance English, Italian and Mandarin Chinese language teacher since 2008. Before moving back to Italy, I used to teach Italian to English speakers in the UK. I attended a part-time PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) course when I was in the UK, and then I undertook my ELT-specific training in 2014 when I did an intensive CELTA and obtained a distinction. I am now constantly undergoing self-development as a teacher, and this blog is part of it, as I explain more in detail here.

Besides teaching and languages in general, I care about free software and NNEST equality. I am a vegan and will occasionally blog about that too.

If you’d like to get in touch, please use the form below or drop me a line through Twitter or (preferably) Mastodon. I’ll be happy to discuss ideas, issues or simply have a chat.
