I have been teaching English, Language Arts, and Italian for ten years in South Florida. I am a National Board Certified teacher with experience teaching a wide range of students. This means that I adapt easily to different learning styles and personality types. With the strong belief that a positive, professional teacher-student relationship will help students to take an active part in their own learning, I encourage interactive discussion and questioning as the best route for students to develop and express their own ideas verbally and in writing. Students who are inspired to learn achieve more at a faster rate, so I aim to help students uncover their own inspiration, while maintaining a high degree of professionalism.
