  • About: Ciao! My name is Garrett and I am the president, founder of Strommen - I am also an Italian teacher. Education runs in my blood. My mother is an Art professor and my father was the Dean of Temple University's study abroad campus in Rome, Italy, for 25 years. I grew up on the campus and travelled to every corner of Italy on the school trips. My parents put me in an Italian school when I was 8 and I picked it up in about 3 months (Roman slang and all). This is perhaps the only "easy" way to learn a language! At Strommen we strive to do the next best thing. We try to create an immersion experience right here in Los Angeles. This summer for example, we will have a German group class at the Berlin Currywurst BierGarten. I love teaching, and I love running our school with our staff and students. I am always impressed and humbled when I see such interest for foreign language in our city. I am currently studying Spanish and French myself. See you soon at a Strommen event or in class! If you want to read a little more about me, check out a recent article in Parkbench or an article in L'italo Americano (in Italian), or an article here about my experience starting Strommen or my wikipedia page A presto!
