ExperienceI started my teaching career 3 years ago in Rome, Italy and I am currently a teacher at Rennert Bilingual, a language institute on 45th st. in NYC. I have experience teaching students of all ages from 8-60+.
I tend to focus my lessons on what you need as a speaker. Whether it be help in your class or determining independently what will help you most as a student dealing with grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, conversation or learning how to speak like an American colloquially, we will work comprehensively to have you speaking more fluently in no time!

HobbiesWhen I'm not teaching English I am acting! I am a huge movie buff and love going to the cinema. Also I really enjoy reading fiction (Vonnegut, Hemmingway, Brett Easton Ellis). I have played sports my whole life and spend time at the gym throughout the week swimming, biking or playing basketball.
