Hi, My name is Maria Luisa and I am Italian: I moved to California for family reason and I love living here.

In Italy I was a teacher and I taught for 7 years at College, teaching Latin, Old Greek and sometimes Italian and History. I started tutoring in the same field when I was 18 years old (almost half of my life until now!). I really love to work with people who want to learn, and I always had good interactions with my students; I am still in contact with many of them, even students who graduated from University. I miss the Latin and Greek classes, and I am happy when I can go back to my old studies (that's what I do when in my free time).

I got my PhD in Classics in Italy, but I spent two years in Germany, and I am fluent in German as well. I really love languages and teaching them. After a few years of experience with foreign people who were learning Italian, I also applied for classes and became a certified teacher for teaching Italian to foreign people.

Teaching languages is my job, and I am really happy if can share my experience with people that have the same interests.
