Universita` degli Studi di Pisa- Italy (Roman History)
University of Alberta (PhD)
I am an Italian native with a background in Roman Archaeology and many years of experience teaching both Latin and Italian languages at all levels. My degrees include a Laurea in Roman History at Universita` degli Studi di Pisa (Italy) and four years towards a Ph.D.( A.B.D.) in Roman Archaeology from University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. I currently hold the position of Adjunct Professor of Italian at a State University and at a College, and I enjoy my work very much. My students range from teenagers attending Middle/High School to adults who desire to cultivate their passion towards foreign languages. Some of my more recent previous Academic experiences include teaching at Cornell University, Colgate, Syracuse University and Uconn in Storrs. I especially love private tutoring for the one-on-one interaction.
