About Maria Luisa

Hi, My name is Maria Luisa, I am teacher and I have been teaching and tutoring for more than 10 years at many levels. I teach Latin, Old Greek, Italian and History. I started tutoring when I was 18 years old and then became a credentialed teacher in Italy. After moving to California I obtained my credentials to teach in public schools and I am enjoying it so much. 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 hold a PhD in Classics from an Italian University, 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 as foreign language and I am now a OPI tester for Italian. Teaching you a language, I will also talk to you about culture and tradition, so if you are interested in learning more about the classical culture or Italian tradition, if you are willing to go to Rome and interact with people with confidence, talking about their past, get in touch with me!

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