I love teaching Italian. I have been teaching for over 20 years, and have taught Italian for more than 3 years here in the Inland Empire at San Bernardino Adult School, Riverside Community College Community Education, and UCR Extension. Starting at the age of two, I have studied and sang in Italian with my grandmother, and studied the language and grammar formally at UCR, l'Università di Siena, Italia, and l'Università di Bologna, Italia.

    "My first Italian course was at RCC in February 2012, it was great. I learned so much & enjoyed professoressa's style of teaching, she's a cool cat! Then I took a semi private course in a small group setting, which I enjoyed very much. I am currently enrolled & feel these semi private courses are helpful. Professoressa is a good teacher & makes learning Italian very fun!!"
