About Francesca

My teaching philosophy has evolved throughout the years. Teaching English Literature at Florida Atlantic University as an adjunct for two years, and as a full time instructor for eight years, has afforded me a clear understanding of how I approach students' learning development. I have always been very aware and thrilled of how unique we all are, and I enjoyed observing students' individual expressions and needs as we covered the course curriculum for every semester. With some experience, I found myself developing at least two different types of approaches regarding the completion of a same assignment: one process outlined very detailed, specific procedures for those students who thrived on step-by-step guidelines and seemed to respond with diminished anxiety and increased confidence; alternatively, I invited students who responded to creativity and novel structures to come up with their own inventive itinerary to the same final goal of each assignment. My goal was to raise students' learning and performance to the highest possibility so that I could issue a rewarding grade for them that made me proud as well.

As a private tutor, I swiftly asses the student's learning needs and can develop a matching teaching approach that capitalizes on time and resources.

During the course of my career at university I was asked to teach two courses in Italian for a year while teaching the remaining two courses in English literature. Other classes I taught or am qualified to tutor are:

-English Writing I and II
-Creative Writing
-Beginning/Intermediate and Advanced Italian Language
-Interpretation of Fiction/Poetry/Drama
-Business Communication
-Speech Writing
-Debate
