My experience as language assistant in Germany, short before graduating in Foreign Languages and Cultures at the University of Urbino, was key to discovering my true passion: teaching Italian to foreigners with an intercultural perspective. I thus decided to specialize in this field and attend the Master's Degree in Didactics of Italian for Foreigners in Urbino, turning my passion into a profession. I taught at the Dante Alighieri School, also cooperating in life-long learning courses for teachers of Italian as FL/L2, and I have worked with foreign students of all ages and nationalities in several local state schools. I love travelling and getting to know new languages and cultures, playing the piano and taking walks on the beach and in the countryside. Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

I was born in Palermo to an Irish-American mother and an Eritrean-Italian father, both members of the American foreign diplomatic body. I am bilingual by birth and have double Italian and American citizenship. I grew up between Palermo and Chicago, graduated in Foreign Languages at the University of Urbino in 1993 and received my Ph.D. in Italian from Rutgers University (NJ) in 2004. From 1994 to 2008 I taught Italian language, literature and cinema in the United States [Rutgers University (NJ), Wheaton College (MA), Brown University (RI), Marquette University (WI)]. I have been residing in Urbino (Italy) with my family since 2008, where I teach English in high school and - as an adjunct professor - at the Università di Urbino and at the Urbino State Institute for Graphic Design (ISIA). I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Intercultural Studies program at the Università di Urbino. I have participated in numerous training workshops in foreign language teaching, both in the United States and in Italy, and have a long and solid experience in foreign language teaching at all levels.

I decided to study Chinese in University and I graduated in Eastern Languages and Cultures in Rome. Since then, my passion for far-eastern cultures and languages and my interest in getting to know foreign cultures through their languages, have never stopped growing. I lived in China for some years, where I attended Advanced Chinese classes and worked as an Italian teacher at the University of Foreign Studies of Guangdong and at the University of Shandong. To delve into my interest in language learning I attended specialization courses in teaching Italian as a second language and in Italian and Chinese linguistics. I am doing my PhD degree at the University of Urbino "Carlo Bo" with a research on the analysis of linguistic difficulties of Chinese students of Italian as a second language. I have taught Italian to foreigners, especially to Chinese speaking students, for some years now. Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

After graduating in Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Urbino, I decided to go get a closer look at what I had been studying on books. Thus, I packed my suitcase and off I went for a studying-trip to China. When I came back from my trip to Beijing I found, thanks to a stage, my great passion: teaching. So I thought I would specialize in teaching and I attend the Master's degree in Teaching Italian to Foreigners at the University of Urbino. Since 2009, I have started cooperating with several private and state schools in the province of Pesaro Urbino, as a teacher of Italian L2. My big passions are art, especially Chinese art, reading and of course travelling which, at each time, makes me discover and fall in love with different languages and cultures.

I graduated in Foreign Languages and Literatures and I started teaching Italian language and culture in 1998, working with private schools and universities. This job fascinated me from the very beginning, and so I first specialized in teaching to foreigners at the University of Venice «Ca’ Foscari», and later in e-learning techniques and methods at the University of Florence. I love being with people, reading, listening to good music and, whenever I can, going on a journey. Although my favorite city will always be Urbino, of which I will unveil to you every little secret and detail. Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
