About Kami

I am a Federal language consultant/analyst with French, Spanish, Italian and Russian and I have experience living, studying and working in Europe, as well as in French, and Spanish speaking countries. I hold a Master's degree in International Commerce and Policy from George Mason University and I am a certified linguist with the DOD.
I have a background in international affairs and foreign languages are my passion.
I teach French and Italian with Arlington Public Schools -Adult Education.
I offer tutoring in two subject areas to committed students with long-term goals:

1. Foreign Languages - French, Italian, Spanish and Russian
Teaching foreign languages is a way to share my knowledge with my students- linguistic but also cultural, in order to help them succeed in a global world and expand your horizons.
The core of my tutoring approach is to transform the learning process into an immersion into a different world and culture. I emphasize on communication and (creative) writing skills and would like my students to reach the stage where they would be able to think in the targeted language.

I offer more specifically:
- French and Italian language and culture for all ages and levels including full immersion
- Russian and Spanish for Beginner and Intermediate level students
- Customized approach for Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced Levels students
-Tailored classes for middle school and high school French language students (French I-VII), AP French
-Preparation for the official French certification exams DILF/DELF /DALF
- Preparation for the official Italian certification exams CILS I-IV
- Preparation for College and Graduate level Foreign Language Proficiency examinations.
-French for Travel
-Italian for Travel
-Spanish for Travel

2. History, politics and government

I have an extensive background in International Relations/political analysis and a MA in International Affairs and I offer tutoring in AP World History as well as AP Government.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and transform your dreams into reality! Knowledge is the key to success!

Bene! (Good!) — This was my first time trying WyAnt Tutoring. I'm very impressed with Kami. The moment we started our lessons she dove right in. She gave me some packets to study and learn.

One thing I like is she went out ...
