Aureliana Di Rollo

Aureliana Di Rollo got her PhD at Monash University (Melbourne). Her background is in Classical Studies, Gender and Feminist Studies, Linguistics and Italian Literature, especially in relation to the opera's librettos.
Before moving to Australia in 2009, Aureliana worked as a tenured teacher in an Italian Liceo Classico for 10 years, teaching Italian, Latin and Ancient Greek. She has also taught in France at the Lycée International Saint-Germain-en Laye, appointed by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. She co-authored a book on WA history and is author of several book chapters, journal articles and magazine articles on her fields of expertise.
Since 2010 she has been teaching Italian at WAAPA – ECU to perspective opera singers. She has already run highly successful Italian for Opera Lovers Courses based on the libretto of Don Giovanni, La Boheme, Il Trovatore, Madama Butterfly and Le Nozze di Figaro.
I am an enthusiastic communicator and I am passionate about arts and languages. This led me to choose my two occupations: teaching and writing.
I am happy to share my knowledge and my interests with other people. During my 20 years of teaching experience at secondary and tertiary level I have developed  the ability to empathise with and teach to a wide variety of  students and learners:
  • Tutoring for secondary school students
  • Adults
  • Individual or group tuition
  • All levels of ability
  • Thematic and/or intensive courses
