About

I used to speak English like a broken robot. I used to believe I was not a writer. I used to think no one would ever hire an Italian as a writer or teacher of writing.

My clients proved me wrong.

As a pro writer, I have 3 goals. As a pro teacher of writing, I also have 3 goals.

3 Goals as a Pro Writer

  1. Make sentences that connect with your clients’ hearts and minds.
  2. Make sentences that help your business grow.
  3. Make sentences that can’t be summarised or trimmed. 
I’ve been doing this for education websites and magazines. My blog posts, interviews, and articles are usually about two main topics: (1) the English language; and (2) language learning and teaching.
 
That’s my “niche,” but I don’t restrict my writing to that. (Check my writing portfolio for everything I’ve published since 2021.)
 
Here are some of my happy clients (who would ever show the sad ones).
 

3 Goals as a Pro Teacher of Writing

  1. Help you engage your readers with your words.
  2. Help you overcome unhelpful beliefs you may have about yourself as a non-native English writer.
  3. Help you become an independent writer so you won’t need my help anymore.
