About Simona

Ciao. Mi chiamo Simona. I have been in the USA since 2009 and I received my PhD from Yale University this past May. Over the past years, I have taught a variety of courses both at Yale and in Italy, and my experience covers all levels of Italian language, from Elementary to Intensive Intermediate, including an Italian for Reading Knowledge class and sections of Italian literature courses, both for graduate and undergraduate students. While at Yale, I have also pursued the Certificate of College Teaching Preparation, 2014, and the Certificate in Second Language Acquisition, 2015.

I convey my passion for teaching by my enthusiasm, my organization, and my strong communication skills. I love teaching, language as well as literature. As an instructor, I set high standards for my students and for myself, and I commit myself to ensure that they are able to approach both language and literature in a critical, creative, and personal way. I enjoy guiding my students towards a deep understanding of both the linguistic and cultural aspects of the Italian language.

Teaching is central to who I am: it is demanding, challenging, but also exciting and personally rewarding. I invest in my students and I put a strong effort into promoting their motivation, enthusiasm, and successes. As teacher, I want to instill in my students an attitude for intellectual honesty and hardworking that can contribute to their success in life and that can instill a passion for a lifelong joy of learning in them.
