I have worked at the University of Catania as a lettrice since 1981. During that time I have taught English at all levels from first year to 'magistrale'. I have also held courses in critical appreciation.

This year I have first year, second year and LM/37 language courses. I am coordinator for second year 'lettorato' courses.

Over the years I have been involved in teacher training and held courses in English language and teaching methodology for both primary and secondary school teachers. Recently these courses have focused on CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning).

I am also interested in the construction of interactive material for language learning and have worked with various software programmes for the production of language exercises, these including work for the De Agostini publishing house.

I have translated many articles from Italian into English for publication by professors and researchers of other departments.
