Welcome to Extreme English 4 Kids & Teens Genoa, Christina Ann Phile Traverso founded in 2008!  Christina has taught English to Italian youth from age three to twenty-three since 2004.  Through rigorous lessons, hard work, and lots of play, students learn to love and appreciate learning English, knowing they are working towards a better future for themselves, full of numerous academic and job opportunities.  Extreme English 4 Kids & Teens strives to guide students to become bilingual before finishing high school.  Becoming bilingual is a long process, and students who begin at an early age have an enormous advantage, especially when confronting difficult English exams.  At Extreme English 4 Kids & Teens, students take TOEFL exams beginning in 2nd-year elementary school, and they go through the various CEFR English levels at the following pace:

CEFR A1 - 3rd Year Elementary School
CEFR A2 - 5th Year Elementary School
CEFR B1 - 1st/2nd Year Middle School
CEFR B2 - 3rd Year Middle School/1st Year High School
CEFR C1 - 3rd Year High School
CEFR C2 - 5th Year High School

With a CEFR C2 certification, students meet the English requirements necessary to be accepted into university departments in English all over the world.  EE4K Staff is dedicated and determined to help every student reach those goals, allowing them to enter adulthood prepared for any opportunity, inside or outside of Italy.

extreme english staff

Extreme English 4 Kids & Teens staff consists of English-speaking freelance English teachers who teach English out of passion.  We have no in-transit teachers, which allows us to follow our students closely from year to year, allowing us to reach specific and rigorous objectives with each student.  Our goal is for students to become bilingual in speaking, reading, writing, and listening in English before finishing high school, an ambitious and arduous task.  Our teachers also speak Italian, which is necessary when teaching intermediate to advanced English grammar.  Teachers work with student groups according to their age-specific unique capabilities.  Christina and Niccoló work with preschool and elementary school students covering beginning and intermediate English learning.  Christina, Giorgio, and Niccoló work with pre-teens and teens from fourth-year elementary to second-year middle school students covering intermediate English learning.  Christina, Elisa, and Fabiola work with students from third-year middle to high school, carrying students through intermediate and advanced English learning.  Teachers regularly communicate and closely monitor every student's English language learning experience by working together as a team.
