Subjects taught
  • Italian

    After nearly 12 years living in Italy I speak perfect Italian and know the quickest way to show you just how easy it can be, from simple conversations to philosophy or even business. I also fully understand the Italian "way" and etiquette.

  • English Language and Literature

    Words are our greatest gift. When we learn to use and interpret them effectively a whole new world opens up to us. For business, self esteem, understanding the world, social situations- I can show you the power of language and how to use words to your advantage. I can help you to appreciate words in any context from business to the "language of love"!
