I believe strongly in the value of teaching, and have worked with teachers for many years as a document provider.

Tell me about your qualifications.
First Class Honours Degree in Political Science/Foreign Languages.
I have studied Italian Law, European Union Law, International and Diplomatic Law, Sociology, History, French and English (translation, language, culture and history - written paper and oral communication skills).
History, French and English exams have been passed at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, following a grant that I have received from my university.
I undertook a research paper on the History of the literary salons in Paris in the XVIIIth Century and translated the Love Letters of Julie de Lespinasse who owned a prominent salon in Paris. I have also studied illustration at the London Institute.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been a freelance translator for the Italian Society for Law and Literature which is a cross-disciplinary institution created to promote and help the interaction amongst literati (historians and philosophers), and more "in-field" professionals such as lawyers and sociologists involved in comparative research and for Edizioni Giuridiche Simone.
I have helped young students for many years providing private lessons in Italian, French and English for various non-profit organizations in Italy (Fondazione Aniello Raucci Onlus with on-line teaching) and in France (Mairie de Paris and L'Art et l'être).
I have first hand experience of children's difficulties in overcoming language problems.

Do you have a personal message for students?
Learning strategies and memory techniques necessary to become fluent in a foreign language are skills that will improve your results and performance in any other subjects.
Becoming fluent in a foreign language will open your mind and increase your confidence. Learning a language is a journey towards personal growth.
