About Anne

I bring three decades of experience to the teaching of all areas of English: reading, writing, critical thinking, grammar and literature. I have taught English in the U.K., in Italy, and in America where I obtained my degrees: Bachelor's of Arts, with a double major in English and Psychology from New York University, and a Master's Degree in Comparative Literature, also from New York University.

Educated in the U.K., I undoubtedly drew benefit from the strong emphasis in British schools on the learning of correct English and the development of respect and reverence for our language. Several years of Latin study contributed enormously to a better understanding of structure and meaning as well as to a disciplined thought process requiring a highly dynamic relationship with words.

An accomplished writer, translator (English/Italian) and devoted teacher, I aim to help my students experience language as a living thing, as a source of magic, and a powerful tool for clarity of thought and action. It is the only tool we humans really have. Everything that happens to us in life depends on what we hear, say and write and on how we think and with the words we use to think.
