About Me

Hello there! I'm Monica, from the South of Italy, and I am both a translator on several online platforms and an Italian/English teacher. I have been tutoring Middle School and Secondary School Italian students for at least three years, helping them developing their skills in English and Italian subjects. I love sharing the beauty of the Italian language and its culture with foreign people, creating a connection between our different countries and learning something new from each other everyday. This is the most interesting part of teaching: not only to help others speaking a new language but to make them fully understand the world in which that very language is born!
