Nicole Bernardi



Nicole was born and raised in a small town not far from Venice. She obtained her Bachelor's degree in American-English and Spanish languages and literatures from Ca' Foscari University of Venice, where she also completed her Master's degree in American Studies. Before moving to Australia, Nicole has worked as a Spanish and English teacher in her hometown, and volunteered as an English tutor in Lisbon, Portugal.

Since moving to Sydney, Nicole has taught Italian to adults, teenagers, and children, sharing her love and passion for the Italian language and culture. Her classes, designed to enhance her student's communication skills from the outset, focus on grammar, vocabulary building, and cultural insights. In addition to carefully tailoring each lesson to the students' levels and needs, Nicole ensures a fun, engaging and laid-back class environment, enabling students (and herself) to fully enjoy the learning journey.

Her passions include reading, drinking tea, traveling, and dancing (especially Zumba, pole dance and country line dance). She is a huge Formula 1 fan and enjoys NBA and European soccer games. Currently, Nicole is working on research articles about family memory in contemporary American novels.
