Tania Zampini

Spoken languages: English, French, Italian


Salve! Mi chiamo Tania e sono una libero professionista specialista nell\'insegnamento delle lingue straniere (inglese e francese in Italia e italiano all\'estero) e delle loro culture. Ho studiato per cinque anni la letteratura e la cultura inglese e italiana presso l\'università McGill a Montreal, QC (Canada) e per altri cinque, la letteratura rinascimentale italiana presso la Johns Hopkins University a Baltimore, MD (USA), concludendo la tesi di dottorato qui a Firenze. Sono canadese di nascita ma di origini italiane. Ho una canina di sette anni e oltre ai libri che leggo sempre ed in ogni luogo, mi interessano molto i film, la musica, l\'arte e il teatro.

Hello! My name is Tania and I have been teaching foreign languages (Italian in Canada and the US, English and French in Italy) for the past eight years. I hold a Ph.D. in Romance languages and literatures (with a specialization in Italian literature of the Renaissance) from Johns Hopkins University, in Baltimore, MD (USA) and a Master of Arts in the same field with a sub-specialization in English literature and cultural studies from McGill University (Montreal, Canada). I have a seven year-old dog, am of Italian descent, and love books (obviously!), art, cinema, music, and theatre.
