TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I currently teach 9th and 10th grade Italian and 11th grade English classes, but I also have taught 12th grade psychology, 12th grade English, and 10th grade PSAT prep courses.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to fuse the traditional with a modern approach. Most of my lessons will include a bit of formal instruction with modern references or off-beat activities to pull the students into the lesson.
