About Maria

I was born in Italy and after some time I moved to Argentina. I went to school there and I decided to learn English and French. I have always had a passion for languages so I became a teacher and an interpreter. I studied at Middlebury College and I spent one year in France to finish my Master's thesis.

I taught French, Italian and Spanish in various schools in Westchester and Connecticut. I also taught French and Italian to executives in various companies in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I speak all three languages fluently.

My other passion is theater which has helped me a lot in my classes with my students. Doing role playing and bring to class real life situations using the language students are learning, has proven to be an excellent tool to improve the use and practice of a foreign language. As an avid learner I am always looking for new teaching methodologies to apply in my classes to make the learning process real and communicative!

I feel proud to be able to speak four languages because it has opened so many doors for me. I always tell my students that the best legacy they can have is to know more than one language because it will help them to understand other cultures and they will be enriched by the experience. Through the practice of reading, speaking, listening and writing students will gain and improve the knowledge of the foreign language where the main goal is to communicate and feel at ease. I enjoy seeing how much they learn while having fun! I presently teach French, Spanish and Italian to middle and high school students and college students too. During the course of the years I have taken many valuable methodology teaching workshops which helped me to improve and enrich my teaching experience.

I can customize my course to your needs. For instant tutoring I can work with you on basic, intermediate and advanced grammar practice. You might also like practicing everyday conversation, emphasizing on good pronunciation. I can also help you with your daily homework and /or with any kind of specific assignments. I also do remedial work.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals.
