Qualifications & Experience

Hello, students!
My name is Bianca and I love literature and languages. At Stanford, I had the opportunity to study a diverse sampling of literatures- from contemporary Turkish novels to contemporary graphic novels of Latin America. I would love to help you develop a love for literature, as well as improving your writing and speaking skills.
At Stanford, I also studied Italian and Spanish. After studying abroad in Florence, I continued to hone my mastery of the language by taking third year classes. As for Spanish, I already spoke it from my home background, but I improved my reading and writing skills through classes on Latin American and Chicano literature. Send me a message so we can schedule a lesson!

Bianca is a really patient and knowledgeable tutor. I was supposed to take a speaking exam and my pronunciation sometimes makes it hard for people to understand me. Bianca helped me with my pronunciation, and I felt like I learned a lot thanks to her and passed my test. She's also helped me write important letters/emails. She's a really good listener. After she understood my situation, she helped me shape my letters/emails. In the end, they sounded much better than I expected, and they clearly conveyed my message.
