About Mara

I am a recent graduate of Fordham University with a B.A. in both Communications and Italian Studies, and I'd love to tutor locally in Connecticut. I've studied everything from Social Media and Journalism to Italian language, literature, history, and culture. For two years I tutored for Fordham's Modern Language department, working with students one-on-one and in small groups on their grammar, comprehension, writing and presentation skills in Italian. In addition, I studied abroad with Fordham in the Summer of 2014, so I can gladly prepare students with the tools they will need if going abroad to Italy and share insights from my own trip.

I love to share my own passion for Italian language and culture with other students. It is extremely rewarding to help a student feel like he or she understands the language and can feel confident reading, writing, or speaking it. Since I am not a native speaker of Italian and began learning the foundations of grammar in Italian, this makes me an even better tutor. I can help students understand Italian from an English-speaking perspective and can help them build their vocabulary and comprehension the way I did.

I am offering additional tutoring services in English Grammar and Writing, as well as Piano. I possess excellent grammar and writing skills, and as an aspiring magazine writer, can help edit other writers' work to the highest quality. I'm currently a freelance writer for RT Book Reviews and MarieClaire.com. I just finished an editorial internship at MarieClaire.com, with numerous published clips on the site.

As for piano, I have been trained in music theory and classical, pop/rock, and musical theater styles since age 9. I have been vocally trained for 4+ years in classical and musical theater techniques. Additionally, I performed for 4 years in the b-Sides, Fordham University's premiere co-ed a cappella group, and would love to share my love of music with students of any level. I am a diligent, conscientious worker but pleasant and personable, in order to help students of all ages with Italian, English writing, or Music.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Grammar

I have excellent English grammar skills.

Italian

I graduated May 2016, Magna Cum Laude from Fordham University with a B.A. in Italian Studies. I am the recipient of the The Anthony and Cecilia Guardiani Award for Excellence in the Study of Modern Languages, bestowed upon the graduating senior at Fordham University with the highest grade point average in the study of any Modern Language. I have two years experience as a private tutor for the Fordham University Modern Language Department.

Piano

I've had a passion for music my whole life, and began studying piano at age 9. I was trained in music theory and studied both classical, contemporary pop/rock, and musical theater. I have continued playing the piano for the past 12 years along with singing; I have 4 years of training in both classical and musical theater vocal technique. In addition, I sang in a co-ed a cappella group at Fordham University, where I helped both choreograph and arrange music.

I'd be happy to assist new students in beginning their study of music theory and the piano, or assist someone looking to get back into the piano in brushing up on their music skills.

Writing

I am a 2016 Graduate of Fordham University, Magna Cum Laude, with a B.A. in Communication with excellent writing skills.
