My name is Sylvia and I was a little girl when my parents moved to Italy to a small town in the province of Ragusa. I lived there until I became an adult and studied at the University of Catania. After that I decided to move back to California where I went back to college to obtain my units in Early Child Development. I have been teaching Italian and English to children and adults for the past 20 years. I have given private lessons and have also worked in Elementary and preschool settings. In addition to working with Fondazione Italia for the past several years, I am also currently teaching English to K-3 students. I look forward to teaching you Italian!
