Teacher and Trainer in Italy

Visit my website

I am a freelance ELT teacher and trainer. I hold both online and face-to-face training and teaching sessions/lessons.

As a trainer, I'm based in the north of Italy and currently organising and running the initial teaching qualification certified by the Cambridge Assessment English (teaching qualifications) CELTA courses in collaboration with the British Council Milan. Details of the teacher training work can be found on

Apart from teacher training, I've also been teaching since 1991. I help students to prepare for Cambridge exams (KET, PET, FCE, CAE, etc) and/or IELTS. And over the last ten years I also have been working with teachers to teach and guide them in their preparation of CLIL lessons either to pass the TKT CLIL exam or to put the lessons into practice in the classroom.

Another growing part of my work is being a speaking examiner, Team Leader and also Regional Team Leader for North West Italy and Sardinia for a major UK exam provider.

One of my favourite quotes:
"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge" Albert Einstein
