I have a TEFL certification and 9 years experience teaching English as a Foreign Language in the U.S. and abroad. I have also taught French to young learners in a summer immersion program. I recently worked as a private tutor in Milan, offering one-on-one English lessons and coaching university students for the IELTS and TOEFL exams. My clients describe me as professional, creative, and friendly.
