I am an Italian mother tongue, experienced and qualified teacher. My name is Ermanno and I come from Genova, in Liguria. I have been living in United States for the last 25 years. I live in McAllen (Texas). I spend half of my time in McAllen, the other half in Monterrey.
Teaching is the career that gives me most enjoyment and reward, and the feedback I receive on a regular basis (from students and colleagues) tells me that my enthusiasm for teaching Italian is passed on to my students.
I enjoy teaching, maybe because it is one of those job...s that can be really rewarding. Teaching and learning are both a very intimate experience. As learners we expose to others our legitimate will to succeed, to grow, to live and our fear to fail; as teachers we need to put ourselves to test, to see if we are able to share our knowledge, if we are able to reach out people and we know that the learners are often able to assess our teaching skills, as much as we have a clear idea of their knowledge of the subject.
