Broaden your travel horizons by learning Italian from an American linguist online

Methodology

I believe that every individual learns and thrives differently and my most important job as a tutor and teacher is to help the student decipher their best learning experience. Sometimes it only takes the slightest adjustment between merely comprehending something versus understanding the complexities of a subject so in depth that you not only retain the material but appreciate it and can teach it back to others. Even school subjects that aren't favorites can become a learning experience that helps to broaden your world and enable you to live more fully in other subjects as well!

Background

I am an avid learner, forever seeking to widen my knowledge and grasp of the world around me everyday. I love literature, languages and history and have traveled extensively as well as lived abroad in Italy, where I attended university, and France. In Italy, I was privileged enough to intern in the Italian Parliament where I worked alongside politicians translating political correspondences and legislative documents. I hope to share my passion for subjects with students and encourage them to find their strengths and potential for the future in the learning more each day. I am fluent in Italian and French and am pursuing my Masters in International Translation. I am a published writer and hope to share with you my love for the written and spoken word in any tongue!
