A native from San Francisco, I lived in Florence, Italy from 2007-2009. From there I have traveled to many beautiful places in Italy. I studied Italian at San Jose State and abroad in Florence, where my Italian truly began to blossom. I learned the language both in the classroom as well as at the dinner table, having met two amazingly welcoming Italian families that treated me like one of their own. I like to base my courses on real world Italian and culture, using vocabulary and grammar to complement the beautiful (and often non-verbal) forms that Italians use to communicate with each other. A presto!
