I am a native Italian speaker who is also fluent in Spanish, French (my Grandparents language) English and Albanian (Arbëreshë along with Italian is my native language)
I have also studied Latin and ancient Greek - Liceo Classico (humanities and classical languages)
I grew up learning and speaking several foreign languages, with my family I speak three languages daily. This enables me to translate quickly and confidently, finding hidden meanings and interpret them easily. As I was born to a bilingual household, I understood soon how to manage two languages and it is very natural for me. So much that I can consider it a passion more than a job!
I have been studying humanities and I achieved a certificate at the end of the course in italian language didactics (the school is approved by Siena University for foreigners). The certificate reassures students they learn a classically correct Italian.
I'm currently tutoring students on one-to-one basis where I tutor italian to a mixture of nationalities. People that learn with me found and find my method easy, quick and enjoyable, because I do love it!
I am proud to say that in less than 7 months I became a successful online tutor and established a great networking with my clients.
My experience enables me to understand when a student makes a mistake due to interference from their native language rather than an error in grammar of the target language. Consequently I can understand how to translate a sentence without altering and modifying the original meaning but instead finding the corresponding way with which native speakers express the same concepts.
Furthermore, I do believe that helping and guiding people in learning a foreign language and for translating a language, what you need and must have is the knowledge, deep knowledge of the languages points. For this reason I am also very happy to tell you that I am lucky being able to speak English every day of my life, my future husband is English native speaker. We keep comparing the two languages together which gives me further practise in translating.
I have developed these skills through my ongoing learning and experiences. I use these skills to help others both with teaching and translating. It is a great pleasure for me to translate from one language to another.
I am a quick learner and adapt easily which has led me to succeed with languages. I believe part of the success is being creative and being able to manipulate language points.
I have developed a successful method to translate and to teach. This gave me the possibility to enrich my own understanding if grammar in English. To add to this I am currently undertaking a TEFL diploma.
My greatest pleasure and achievement, other than being fluent and accurate in multiple languages, is when a student, customer or client achieves their success through me, knowing I have enabled this.
In addition to my fascination and passion with languages I have an understanding and knowledge of Italian law and legal. I understand the technical language of this subject as I have been studying for a degree in law and have passed many exams.
My ambition is to use this along with my language skills to translate professional and legal documents or for companies that require this service. I also have a deep interest in beauty and make up, fashion and weddings particularly planning ( I am a certified wedding planner) : it would be a dream to translate in these fields.
