Meet the teachers

Vicky Addy

Ciao Mi chiamo Vicky Addy. I am an enthusiastic, experienced and qualified Italian language teacher (BA Hons 2:1, PGCE) with a passion for teaching Italian and all things Italian! My Italian classes are of the highest standard and focus on the individual learning needs of the students. My years of experience have taught me how to get the best out of my students whilst providing a relaxed and fun learning environment. As well as being passionate about Italian, I enjoy reading, walking and family holidays in our touring caravan.

Tina Newsome

Salve! Sono Tina Newsome. I love teaching Modern Foreign Languages and have done so now for 25 years, both in secondary and adult education. As well as Italian I am fluent in German and French and I have studied Spanish, so it is safe to say I am a bit of a linguist! You will find my lessons fun and interactive catering for a wide variety of learning needs. I am also a Dyslexia Specialist Teacher. As well as languages I enjoy Church bell ringing, scuba diving and hiking. I look forward to meeting you at one of my courses at The Modern Language School.
