I lived in Italy for over twenty years and am completely fluent in Italian. I have taught Italian language and culture in public elementary school districts and privately. I have tutored English Language Learners of all ages and from all over the world.
I am a certified teacher in the state of Illinois and possess a Master of Arts in Teaching. In addition to teaching Italian, I tutor middle school, high school and college students needing help with their writing skills (including composition, grammar, syntax, vocabulary enrichment and spelling, as well as writing essays, reports, short stories and poems.)
I offer "tutoring excursions" to museums, theatres and other cultural venues. This is a wonderful way for non-native English speakers to learn our language while being exposed to local culture. The language lesson becomes intertwined with the cultural experience.
I also offer online language lessons in both English and Italian.
I love foreign languages, reading and writing. My goal is to help all of my students reach their maximum potential in an engaging, fun and relaxed atmosphere.
