I am a successful professor of Italian language and literature with native proficiency. I hold a Masters and a PhD. in Romance Languages and Literatures from Harvard University and a BA in Italian from Hunter College of the City University of New York.
I held a secondary teacher certification from New York State having followed the education sequence including student teaching in Washington Irving High School in NYC. I taught Italian at the University of Texas at Austin for 4 years and then at Wheaton College in Norton, MA, for an additional 7 years.
I visit Italy twice a year, every year, to visit family and old friends with whom I went to school there until I was 11.
I was awarded the Faculty Appreciation Award from the senior class at Wheaton College twice in 5 years, I was Chairman of the Department of Spanish and Italian, created an Italina major, and I increased enrollment in my classes from 36 students to 147.
My teaching method links the language to the culture with explanations often relying on the ever present human dimension in language development. I do not simply tell my students what grammatical forms are by why they are what they are. I am firmly committed that understanding creates retention.
