Buongiorno! Bom dia! Buenos dias! Bonjour!

My name is Gina and I am a professional linguist with a Master’s degree in Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French. In addition, I am a Chartered Linguist, MCIL with the Chartered Institute of Linguists, a professional organization (UK- based) for translators, interpreters and language professionals.

I work as an interpreter (medical, psychiatric, and general /conference interpretation).

I do freelance translation work and am currently doing translation projects for Duolingo and an art gallery in France.

I have been teaching and tutoring foreign languages since 1990: adults, college and high school students, and grade-school children; classroom, group, and private lessons; for business, travel, and exam preparation.

My passion for languages started at a very young age. I grew up multi-lingual, have lived and spent time in multiple countries, and am always involved with international groups in my community.

I am a member in the following organizations:
Chartered Institute of Linguists (UK)
International Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters (IAPTI)
American Association for Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese
Language Busters (Brazil)
Tous Bénévoles (France)
Alliance Française of Charleston
APTRAD (Portugal)
Translators Without Borders
Istituto Italiano di Cultura (Italy/Portugal)
Instituto Cervantes (Spain/Portugal)

I love to share my passion for languages with others. My lessons can focus on conversation, grammar, test preparation , etc, depending on the needs of the student.

Let me know your goals and we can work out a lesson plan.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Gina was patient with me, since I'm completely new to the French language. She also was willing to teach me in the way that I wanted to learn, which I really appreciated. Instead of conjugating a million verbs, we're working on conversation.

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.
