I am a very experienced tutor, particularly in ESL and English Topics. Besides tutoring in California, I have held teaching positions and taught ESL classes in Italy, Ukraine, and the Netherlands for over 7 years. My most recent teaching experience dates from my time in Maastricht, the Netherlands, where I worked for two language schools teaching B1 and B2 level English courses. Upon my return, I worked during the school year for a tutoring program funded by the San Diego Unified School District, where I tutored English and Math to students aged 6-18. I love to challenge students and tailor a course to their needs so they can succeed! Everyone has different aptitudes in language learning, and I will readily identify and address a student's problem areas for maximum improvement.

I earned an MA in Arts and Heritage Policy, Management, and Education from Maastricht University (NL), following a BA in Art History, Theory & Criticism and a Russian and Soviet Studies minor at UCSD. At UCSD I spent a year studying abroad in Italy (Rome and Padua), developing expertise in Italian medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque art and architecture, including coursework at the Universita degli Studi di Padova. At Maastricht University my thesis proposal was accepted for a research fellowship in Istanbul, Turkey. As such, I have extensive experience with academic research, writing, and editing as well as a variety of topics in history, social studies, literature, art, and geography.

I am a native English speaker and fluent in written and spoken Italian. Further, I have studied Russian, Turkish, Dutch, and Spanish.

I offer a flexible cancellation policy (2 hours) and can travel to you. Otherwise, I will conduct tutoring sessions in a library or coffee shop that is convenient for you. I gladly accept feedback from parents and students, and offer a free consultation before a course is agreed upon.

I look forward to working with you!
