I hold degrees in Italian from Edinburgh and Manchester universities, including an MA and PhD for my then pioneering work on the speech of Italian immigrants in the UK.

I have wide experience of teaching in the UK and Italy and have taught Italian and English to students of all ages from children to adults, and a variety of levels. For many years I was Head of Italian at the University of Salford.

I have also worked as a freelance translator and interpreter in the UK and Italy, and published textbooks and articles. I am currently working on an English/Italian parallel text book for children. 

My love of Italy and all things Italian continues. After 10 years in Cornwall, where I have been teaching Italian to groups and individuals in regular classes and occasional workshops, this autumn (2015) I shall be moving to Petersfield in Hampshire. I plan to start offering both Italian and English courses in Petersfield from January 2016 and lessons via Skype will restart in mid-October 2015.

I also have bases in Italy where I can offer Italian study holidays for adults: in the fascinating walled city of Lucca, in Tuscany and the lovely medieval hill village of Pacentro, in Abruzzo,  The village has been named one of the borghi più belli d'Italia. Click here for information on Pacentro.

In 2012, I extended my programme of English courses and introduced summer English language holidays for adults in Cornwall. From January 2016, I shall be offering English courses in Petersfield both in the summer and winter months.

I now divide my time between the UK and Lucca,Tuscany.
