Bio

I am an American citizen who grew up overseas speaking English, Italian and French in the home. I was educated in Switzerland and England where I finished high school, following the English school system which puts a lot of emphasis on language and composition. Consequently I was accepted to the School of Languages and Linguistics at Georgetown University, Washington D.C. There I majored in Italian literature and minored in English.

I am an American citizen who grew up overseas speaking English, Italian and French in the home. I was educated in Switzerland and England where I finished high school, following the English school system which puts a lot of emphasis on language and composition. Consequently I was accepted to the School of Languages and Linguistics at Georgetown University, Washington D.C. There I majored in Italian literature and minored in English.

My freshman year, I was hired by one of my college professors as her T.A. (teacher's assistant) and I have been tutoring ever since. I graduated with a BS in languages and linguistics. I really enjoy tutoring my students, and I feel that I can offer them some of my knowledge that I attained by going through the English school system, that is very competitive, especially when it comes to literature and composition. I thoroughly enjoy reading all the great classics of literature (both English, American and Italian, like Hemingway, Faulkner, Dante, Shelly and much more) and I love to instill this joy of reading and literature in my students.

For my Italian students I can offer them my knowledge of the language, literature, art and culture. I have a home and family in Italy, so I travel back there several times a year, which keeps me very current with the language and culture.

More recently I have tutored students who attend local universities, and I have several high school students too. Additionally, I have prepared people for their first trip overseas, tutoring them in the Italian language and offering them my experience and knowledge of the country and the great works of art that Italy has to offer.

Great Tutor

Thank you very much for your tutoring. Thank you for spending a lot of time with her and you are a very good teacher. She hopes that she can see you again at some point down the road. I have seen much improvement in her English. She promises that she will read a lot of English and learn as much as possible. It has been a pleasure to meet you.
