Ciao a tutti! My love for languages influenced me to study English linguistics and Italian during my time at San Francisco State University. I was fortunate to be able study abroad in Italy two different times! This opportunity enabled me to gain fluency in the Italian language and learn more about the Italian culture. I decided to study Spanish three years ago and have picked up the language quickly due to the similarities with Italian. I have reached an advanced level in the Spanish language. I hope to have the chance to share my love of language with you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked an English and Math tutor for elementary-aged students at Kumon Learning Center. I have experience being a teacher's assistant at an elementary school, co-teaching the material. I also have experience being a private tutor for elementary-aged students.

Italian

I studied Italian at SFSU for 3 years and then studied abroad in Pavia, Italy for 9 months. All of my classes were in Italian and I quickly picked up the language, as no one spoke English in Pavia. I recently returned to Rome, Italy for 3 months and worked as an English tutor while living with an Italian family. I continue to keep in touch with all my Italian friends I met during my time in Italy, which allows me to put my Italian to use frequently.

Spanish

I started teaching myself Spanish a few years ago, when I realized how similar it was to Italian and how useful it would be to know this language. I taught for a brief time in Mexico and recently took the California Subject examination for Teachers (CSET) for Spanish language and passed all the sections. I am currently in the process of applying for my teaching credential to become a Spanish teacher.
