I have twenty years of experience in teaching languages. I have taught people from age 16 to 85. I have worked one on one and also have several years of experience teaching college. I've worked with students from around the globe and have expertise in working with students with learning disabilities. I'm a specialist in accent modification and pronunciation and can help you improve your American English or Italian accent.
I have a Master's degree in ESL Education (M.Ed) from Elms College in Chicopee, MA. I concentrated in instruction of ESL to adults. I have a M.A. in Translation Studies (Italian to English) from the University of Massachusetts. I have worked as an Italian to English translator since 1998.
I believe that a solid understanding of a language's grammatical rules combined with authentic vocabulary acquisition is the best way to learn a language. I love learning and teaching languages and do my best to make it fun.
I can provide extra help to students who are taking English or Italian classes or I can be the sole instructional source. I look forward to hearing from you.
