Hello- I am Gina!
I am a linguist with a Master's degree in Romance Languages and Literature- Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French.
I am a Chartered Linguist, certified by the Chartered Institute of Linguists (UK/International).

I have always had a passion for languages- I have been multilingual from a young age. I studied several languages formally in school before college, earning awards in language studies in high school. In college I earned a BA and MA in Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French language, literature, and linguistics.

I have been teaching since 1990, adults and children, in person and online, private and group lessons, classes for high schools, businesses, university and community programs.

I travel extensively and I am very involved with language groups and societies in my community. I am an active member of the Alliance Française of Charleston, Italian and French cinema and book clubs, the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese, and Spanish and Portuguese language groups.

I work as a translator and interpreter: translations for art galleries, cultural institutions, literature, personal documents; medical and psychiatric interpretation as well as interpretation for schools, tourism, etc. I also give music lessons in Spanish, French, Italian , and Portuguese and take part in bilingual opportunities in the Make-a-Wish organization.
I am a member of the International Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters (IAPTI) and the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL).

My approach to language learning is very focused on acquiring the language just as a native speaker would.
I love sharing my passion for the Italian, French, Portuguese and Spanish languages.

Fun, Engaging, and Knowledgeable

Gina is so fun to work with! I started from scratch with french, and Gina has made the introduction so engaging. She definitely knows what she's talking about, and is very good at explaining things. HIGHLY recommended!

Dante, 5 lessons with Gina

Gina's knowledge of the subject was surpurb. It was clear that she had mastered Brazilian Portuguese in all respects.

Gina taught me what each word of the Portugese lyrics of the song, Amor em Paz meant in English, its part of speech, how it functioned in the sentence, and how to pronounce the word/ s both in the spoken and singing mode of expression. She was profssional, most competent and a delight to work with.

Joseph, 6 lessons with Gina

Spanish and culture

I read Gina's profile and I knew she was who I wanted as an instructor. I didn't just want to learn a language. I wanted to learn about Spanish people as well. I feel confident with my decision to select Gina as my Spanish tutor.

Patient and helpful

Gina is very patient and helpful in finding a good spot for me to continue learning Spanish. Explains things well and is fine backtracking if I need to. Would recommend her to others who need help with Spanish.
