    I accept payment through Paypal and 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 and can see why you make mistakes or what you want to say, therefore I will be able to correct giving you a plausible explanation.

    $75 for private lesson (live and online), $100 for semi-private (2 people)
    Plea se ask for group lessons and Corporate lessons fees.
