عني

Business English - Academic English - Conversational English - English for Travel - Pronunciation. I will help you gain confidence while increasing your fluency and precision.

I create a plan for each student according to the student’s interests and goals for improvement. I come prepared for each lesson to help students progress quickly, easily, and with confidence.

I really enjoy teaching English and seeing students progress and reach their goals. For the past five years, I have dedicated myself full-time to this work.

I bring a depth of experience:
• 5000+ hours of private, in-person, and online tutoring
• University Degree in English and Italian
• Masters English Teaching Certificate
• Masters level business & teaching courses
• TOEFL & IELTS Teaching Courses
• 26 years of owning/working part-time in business


Outside of teaching, I have two children: my son is studying Business and Marketing at a University in Utah, in the Western part of the USA; and my daughter is pursuing a Master in Occupational Therapy in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I live and work half the year from the USA and a half from Rome, Italy. I enjoy being active - hiking, yoga, nordic and alpine skiing, tennis, and swimming. I love animals and had a small family farm for 15 years.

I truly enjoy people and working with each individual student toward their goals.

Please contact me if you have any questions. I would like to teach you English!
