Who I am
I am a teacher of Italian as a Second Language and a tutor of Italian for high school students, I have been teaching since 1994, included adults. Although I have lived in several countries including Peru, Venezuela and the USA, I continued and completed my studies here in Italy, in Chiavari and Genova. I have a Bachelor of Arts studies degree in Italian, granted from the Università degli Studi di Genova; and a Master's degree in Juridical Specialized Translations granted in the same university. I still try to keep myself updated in translations and teaching in order to continue to work more professionally. I live in La Spezia, a maritime city bordering the beautiful 5 Terre, Portovenere, Lerici, not so far from Portofino, Sestri Levante and other Ligurian beauties.
I am also a translator mainly in the juridical field, I currently deal with Italian Dual Citizenship.
Remote teaching, online via Skype, Zoom, FaceTime:
I like to teach the Italian language and doing so I lead my students to learn all about Italy and its customs, such as history, art, culture, life among Italians, fun, clichés, food and other goodies, so it isn't only learning the language but learning all about Italy. I follow the QCER/CEFR program, I tailor my classes to the student according to his/her needs.
