I was born and raised in Genoa (Genova), the city of pesto, Cristoforo Colombo, jeans fabric, and a lot more... I moved to Finland in 2017 to pursue a Ph.D. student in Math. My official teaching experience has been mostly at an academic level, with Math courses. I am very passionate and meticulous about this, and in February 2020 I was awarded a teaching prize by the Math department.
Through the university, I also participated as an organizer to some Math activities for kids and high school students, within events such as Girls' Day (an initiative to promote the sciences among young school students, in particular, girls) or Math camps.
Privately, I have tutored school and university students, mostly in Math courses. Occasionally I have helped with English and Latin.
Aside from math, I am very interested in learning languages and sharing knowledge about those. I am confident that everybody (especially Finns!) can learn Italian, with a little passion and motivation! Finnish speakers have the advantage that they are used to rich but regular grammar, and the sounds are basically the same as those in Italian! But in fact, I know people with mother tongues that are very different from Italian (even from Thailand and China!) who learned (quickly!) how to speak shockingly fluent Italian!
The key? It's exactly like you already heard everywhere: perseverance! Just give a little, but every day! Do you want to know the difference between giving 101% or 99% every day for a year? Just like some motivational posters say, if you take 1.01 and multiply it 365 times, you get more than 37. Try doing the same with 0.99, and you get a pretty lousy 0.0255. Don't you think it's worth putting in that extra 1%? Trust a mathematician! ;)
I also like reading, video games, watching movies and TV series, and playing music! I am quite sure we will have interests in common and plenty to talk about!
Talk about your favorite things in Italian!
