My passion for teaching has grown over the years, starting with a natural predisposition and increasing through the academic success of my students. I worked for 5 years in Italy with the Italian
Ministry of Education teaching Natural Science
, and abroad (Quito, Ecuador) with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs teaching Italian and Natural Science. I worked with children and teenagers in elementary and high schools, in class and after school activities. Students have taught me that there are many ways to learn, and the tutor is not only a teacher but also helps every student identify his/her specific areas of strength in order to improve areas of weakness.
To have helped many students to improve their performance during the school year increased my interest in one-on-one teaching. I am really convinced that a good tutor can give important tools to students having difficulty with a subject and improve their attitude toward that subject. I have a Degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and think that Natural Science and Mathematics
are of basic importance for the cognitive development of all children.
As a teacher of Italian, I am currently collaborating with an important Italian organization
in Los Angeles by holding an Italian course for beginning adults. Italian is the language
of classical music
, healthy and delicious cooking
, and of fashion. Italian cities like Rome, Venice and Florence are among the most beautiful cities in the world. I can give you the basic elements to start communicating in an effective, useful and confident way. If you have already studied Italian, I can help you improve your skills. We will study with commitment, passion and fun.
I am looking forward to studying with you!
