I was born and lived the first 20 years of my life in Italy, I was raised bilingual and I studied History as an undergraduate. My history proficiency goes from ancient (Roman and Greek in particular) to medieval (Renaissance in particular) to contemporary (up to now). After graduating I taught entry-level Italian courses for two semesters at Syracuse University. I am currently in my second year of the MA program in Italian at Georgetown University, where I have a 4.0 GPA, and have just returned from a semester at Perugia in Italy.

While I was an undergrad I used to tutor people but it has been a little while since I did that. When tutoring in Italian I tend to answer only in Italian unless there is some problem of comprehension and I tend to prefer full-immersion to a more bit-by-bit approach. When tutoring in History I'm more partial to letting the students tell me what they know rather than having them rely on me for answers since more often than not they know they answers if they paid attention in class but perhaps cannot connect the dots or have trouble forming a coherent narrative.
