Biography Zaza

Hello everyone,

My name is Emilia.  I am originally from South Africa and moved to Bologna Italy in January 2018.  I am very excited to be teaching at ZaZa School. Before moving to Italy, I worked in the petrochemical corporate environment for over 20 years.   I have a TEFL certificate and have been teaching English in Italy since the beginning of the year.  I work with students of all ages, ranging from 4 right up to 76 years old.

I have excellent inter-personal skills and a great passion for teaching English as a second language.  I believe that conversation is key to improving linguistic skills.  I teach my students to have confidence and to speak English as often as possible.  My philosophy is that confidence comes not from always being right, but from not fearing to be wrong.

A good teacher shows a student where to look but does not tell them what to see.  I enjoy teaching because I believe that it allows me to make a difference.  Education is vital to everyone at any age, by playing an active role in someone’s education, you are in fact playing an active role in not just their future, but in the future of society as a whole.

When I am not teaching or exploring the beautiful Italian cities and villages, I enjoy snuggling up with a good book, a piping hot cup of coffee and my beloved pets.  I have a dog, Snoekie and two cats called Smokey and Desideria.  Yes, they came with me all the way from sunny South Africa.

I am looking forward to meeting my new students and starting this exciting new venture at ZaZa School.  Learning anything new is always quite scary and seems somehow impossible, but as the great Nelson Mandela once said, “Everything was impossible until someone did it”.

Every student is unique and that is why all my lessons and courses are planned around your requirements and your level of English.  It is important for me to understand WHY you would like to learn or improve your English.  Is it for business purposes, perhaps a job interview or maybe you would like to travel or study in an English-speaking country?  Whatever the reason, book a lesson with me at ZaZa School and let us help you to speak English with confidence.

 

Thank you
