About Cristina

I am a full time teacher at an Italian Public School. I have 10 years of experience teaching in Italy and France both at the elementary and high school. Ever since I got my master's degree, I've tutored adults and students of all grades.

Teaching and education is my job and my passion, too. I recently moved with my family from Italy to Houston to follow my husband's relocation as he works for a multinational company. I am a mum of 2 boys of 6 and 4 years old.

I love helping my students reaching their goals. Learning a new language is a fantastic journey discovering sounds, people and cultures. For each student, according to their levels, fields and needs, I like to customize my lessons.

I have a Master's degree in French and English language and literature at University "G. D'Annunzio" of Italy 2003, a Postgraduate Teaching Qualification in English language and Literature 2003-2005, a Postgraduate Teaching Qualification in French Language and Literature 2005-2006, and a Postgraduate Teaching Qualification as a Teacher for students with special needs 2006-2007.

I emphasize the communicative aspect of language but I also stress grammar and vocabulary. All the skills are fundamental to becoming proficient in a second language. I am quite flexible with my time, and can try and work around your schedule as much as possible. I look forward to help you master the French or Italian language, and hope to meet you soon.

Italian lessons

We have just moved back to America from Italy,after living in Italy for 8 1/2 years. I wanted a way to continue my daughters Italian and Cristina has been helpful with that. My daughters first lesson with Cristina went really well. She was very gentle and kind with my daughter when speaking with her. Looking forward to our next lesson.
