Middlebury College (Master's)
I happily taught Italian for many years in the Pennsylvania public school system, and now I am retired. However, I am not retired from teaching this beautiful language, as I am teaching at a local community college and continue to tutor. I spent my career teaching in middle school and high school, but I have experience teaching at the college level and have tutored potential travelers to Italy, opera singers, and students who wanted to advance to a higher level. I have studied in Italy over many summers at the Universita`per Stranieri in Perugia, Universita` per Stranieri in Siena, and at the Universita` Ca' Foscari on a Fulbright scholarship. I shared my passion for the Bel Paese by planning trips for my students, so they could experience first hand this amazing country.
To keep current with the language, I listen to podcasts, subscribe to Italian speaking groups on Facebook and read current newspapers.
I would be happy to share my knowledge and experience with you so that you, too will love Italy, its language and its culture.
While I was teaching, the Italian program at the high school enjoyed the highest enrollment. My students shared my interest and enthusiasm for Italian and continued to sign up for Italian courses.
My students in the Community Education program frequently ask me to tutor them after they have taken my course.
I would love to hear from you and share my knowledge of Italian with you. I will accommodate lessons to meet your personal needs. A presto!
