I am a third year PhD student in the Department of Italian at UCLA. I received my MA in Italian literature from UCLA in the spring of 2011. My research focuses on modern and contemporary Italian literature and
film and renaissance theater. I teach both undergraduate language
courses (Italian 1-3) as well as literature and film.
In 2009 I graduated from Scripps College in Claremont, CA with a BA magna cum laude in European Studies and Foreign Languages.
I have many years of tutoring and private-lesson experience and have worked with students of all ages, from middle school to graduate school, to adults seeking continuing education.
