    I accept payment through ZELLE

    I have a very unique way of teaching which combines my background in Classical studies with a Scientific background which makes students build their own sentences using building blocks.
    You will find I have the best way to explain grammar as not only I am native Italian and educated in the field but I have a fair knowledge of the English Language which makes me see why you make mistakes and correct them giving you a plausible explanation.
