Ciao, Hola, Bonjour!
I'm Silvia originally from Italy. I have been living in New Zealand for 5 years and decided to make it home as soon as I landed here.
Addicted to travel and sport, my main passion has always been learning new languages.
With a university degree in foreign languages and international management, I can speak 5 languages (English, French, Spanish, German and Italian). So no matter which your native language is, I can help a Spanish learn French, a German learn Spanish, a French learn English. or an English learn Italian.
I'm available to tutor both children and adults on a one-to-one or group basis (corporate groups welcome), all levels and all requirements (learning for business, travel, school...) accepted.
Talk to you soon! A presto, Hasta luego, à bientôt!

During my high school and university studies I've tutored children/teenagers aged 5 to 18 in foreign languages and literature (English, German, French and Spanish) on a private basis and in one-to-one or group sessions.
In Italy I'm qualified to teach languages (English and German) at elementary school thanks to my university degree.
I've taught as a volunteer in Nepal, Tanzania and Uganda to children between 3 and 18 years old and that has been one of the best experiences in my life.
Although I've never taken up the teaching career, I've always enjoyed transmitting and sharing my passion for languages, using alternative learning methods, such as TV series or theatre plays, to engage students during lessons and speed up the learning process while having fun.
Any kind of sport (running, swimming, yoga, crossfit, mountain biking....)
Learning new languages (possibly my next language will be Portuguese)
Hiking, hiking, hiking!
Watching movies and TV series
