"... As Academic Peer Advisor for the Italian Department, I tutored students of all levels in grammar, composition, and Italian culture, and tutored exchange students from Italy in English, translating as necessary. I have worked as a freelance writer and editor for such organizations as the San Diego Italian Film Festival and various travel blogs; I am a contributor to L'Italo-Americano, the Italian-American community newspaper, and have published poetry and short stories in several magazines. I am currently waiting to hear back from various MFA programs in creative writing.

My tutoring experience began nearly four years ago when I began working with an organization that helps prepare under-served students for the SAT and the college admissions process. I enjoyed breaking students' preconceived notions about what they could and could not do, and I value the interpersonal relationships with my students that I was able to create and maintain to this day.
