I consider myself a lucky person because I succeeded in studying what I liked and working in a field where I can spend my competencies and use my creativity.
This is the best match I could find to appreciate every aspect of my working life, even when I have to work hard and long hours to respect strict deadlines or unexpected changes.
Plus, in my job, I keep learning every day.
I have a wide range of teaching and coaching experience, having worked for schools, embassies, companies, organizations, and individual students of various ages.
Today, I coach mostly teenagers and adults. They are students, entrepreneurs, professionals or artists who need to - or simply want to - learn Italian.
I am also a teacher trainer and a researcher in Sociolinguistics and Language Pedagogy: I integrate different disciplines to create new materials and activities for my courses.
I also use drama techniques that help everyone develop new strengths in performing in Italian: students have fun and are not afraid to make mistakes. Hence, they learn more quickly and deeply.
I like to collaborate with publishing houses and magazines as an author and a content creator.
"In viaggio con Sara. Conversazioni su arte, cucina, design... Italia e italiani" is a webTV show I conceived and created from scratch to the realisation, in every detail Available in every episode: script, language activities, Italian subtitles.
I wrote two books based on storytelling and language pedagogy: "L'italiano per la cucina" explores Italian cooking culture and regional recipes, "L'italiano per l'arte" delves into the most important Italian artists and masterpieces: original stories to read and listen to, cultural and practical tips, visional glossaries, mind maps, and much more.
My motto for my clients: Be yourself in Italian!
