About Simona B.

San Diego, CA
View Full Profile

I was born and raise in Italy, moved to the US few years ago.
I have been an Italian teacher for many years.
I can teach you from the basic to an advanced level

About Simona
I was born and raised in Italy. When I moved to the States in 2005, I barely spoke English.
That's why I decided to start teaching Italian. I know how difficult it is to go to a foreign country and not be able to buy something as simple as bread.

I will send you links, we will read together, watch videos, talk to each other. No need to buy any book with me, I will send you everything.

Are you ready to learn? Because I am happy to teach you.

View Full Profile

Ciao, thank you for checking out my profile.
My name is Patrizia, I was born in Firenze in Italy and I moved to UK 7 years ago. I now live between Florida and Italy. I spend the summer at my home in Italy teaching Italian in my kitchen and giving the chance of living in a 'normal' Italian house.
I have been teaching Italian for six years in UK, private lessons and classes.
If you are a beginner and you don't know where to start from in this 'jungle' of Italian courses and lessons, or you have already done some Italian in the past, or you want to improve your skill for work or being able to speak to local while in Italy, I can help you to achieve these goals.

About Patrizia
Ciao! My name is Patrizia, and I’m originally from Firenze in Italy. I currently live between Florida, UK and Italy, where I teach Italian to English speakers.
I enjoy teaching my language and learning new things from my students, experiencing new cultures.
I love pass you on nuances, I enjoy teaching the real Italian, the one spoken in Italy, and discover the differences with the one written on books.
I do not have a degree, I have lots of experience teaching the language. I have been running up to 8 classes in adult education, covering any level from beginner to advanced. I'm a real person and I understand very well the weak points (i had to go trough them when learning English) and I know how to overcome them.
My teaching style? Tailor made! I teach the Italian that is relevant to YOU and what you want to achieve.
We will have fun du
ring our lessons, but we will also work hard to achieve your goals.
Learning a language is like an orchestra, it works with several instruments. Therefore, not only grammar, but also vocabulary, listening (ouch!) and speaking with a nice pronunciation. Listening exercises, yes, they are very important for your future ability of interacting with Italians.
I will also explain the Italian grammar in English, unless you are at an advanced level.

I have a conversation-based curriculum I designed based on my 5 years of teaching introductory Italian. My lessons are fun and get you communicating in the language as quickly as possible. The book I send you will outline the basics of Italian grammar, and we fill in with additional vocabulary according to student interest.

About Peter
I love sharing knowledge! Math has always been a passion for me, and I competed in several math competitions even in elementary school. Since then I have tutored many students in math from a fourth grade level to college math. I scored a 34 on the ACT and I enjoy helping others achieve their dreams by getting college scholarships. I lived in Italy for more than 2 years and have worked as an Italian teacher and tutor for 5 years. I have been playing guitar and making music for 19 years. You can check out my CD, "Songs from Pablo's Attic," on Spotify and iTunes. I am currently attending graduate school at the University of Utah and our tutoring endeavors help us work through school in a meaningful way.

Ciao! Sono Lorena! I am a native Italian speaker. I am from Treviso, a beautiful town located near Venice. I would like to help you learn this beautiful language in a fun way. Tell me your goals and I can tailor the class according to them. Maybe you want to learn some basic words to get around Italy for an upcoming holiday or perhaps you study it years ago and you would like to improve it. Maybe you want to learn some words and phrases to impress your date. Or perhaps you like a particular Italian song and you would like to understand the meaning and learn how to sing it!

About Lorena
Ciao! I am a native Italian living in the USA for several years now.
My background is in foreign languages and I love traveling and meeting new people. I studied English and French in Italy before spending two years in England working and studying to perfectionate English where I also learned conversational Spanish.
Once in the USA I started working in the information technology field for a company that had a branch in Italy. I had to assist, translate and teach different materials in Italian and I also did some freelancing tutoring.
I have three children and I also speak and teach Italian to them only. It has been fun to see them being comfortable in speaking Italian when we go to Italy. I try to travel to Italy at least once a year.

My other passion is cooking and baking. I was lucky that I grow up with both my parents
as excellent cooks. We had a vegetable garden, fruit trees and livestocks so most of the ingredients were fresh. I started cooking a lot when I moved to USA as I missed the Italian dishes very much and I realized my only connection to my country was via the food.

I also have a love for fashion! Growing up in Italy means being surrounded by beauty everywhere.. the marvelous architecture and art, the language and music, the beautiful landscapes, the fruits of nature and the fashion! I believe because of this most Italians develop a sense of style. When I moved here I realized how much harder was to find unique clothes and accessories so I enjoy the challenge to put together outfits with what I have available.

Lorna was great baking with my 12 year old grandson. He was awaiting hip surgery so the class was a great distraction for him and the end product a beautiful chocolate cake to take home was a fun reward.
Lorna was very well prepared, had all the ingredients and tools laid out, let my grandson do much of the work measuring, mixing etc and even had baked a similar cake the night before so there would be a cool cake to frost and decorate.
His review: it was great.

After you have experienced a cooking lesson with Lorena you will feel like you have visited Venice Italy.
Her birth place. Lorena will share simple, healthy recipes you will use for a lifetime. I learned so much from her and I'm already a glorified chef. Her signature dishes with all the Venetian secrets can be revealed in her kitchen or yours. She's a very good listener and will adapt to what your family likes to eat. I will continue my lessons after the New Year... wanting to pare wine with the food . Another hidden talent .thank you Lorena

I was born in Italy and lived there for 36 years. I went to school there and I have a Bachelor Degree from one of the oldest Universities in Europe, the University of Verona. Before college, I attended the Liceo Linguistico, where I extensively studied Italian Grammar in connection to Latin, French and German. I can honestly say I master the Italian grammar in all of its structures.
I have been working in Customer Service for an American Bank in Italy for the last 10 years. In addition to that, I have been tutoring students of different ages, Elementary School all the way to High School, since I was in college. The subjects I covered were for the most part English, Italian and Math. I was also tutoring adults who wanted to learn English as beginners or improve their conversation skills. I loved my job at the bank, but at the same time there was nothing more satisfying than seeing my students succeed: I have always enjoyed helping people improve their communication skills and improve ...

About Francesca
I was born and raised in Vicenza, an hour west from Venice. My husband is American, we met in Italy and after living together there for 15 years, we decided to move back to the US last Summer. We have two kids, 7 and 4, who are perfectly bilingual.
I have always enjoyed teaching English to little kids and adult friends in Italy, so I can only enjoy teaching Italian even more. Although I'm enjoying this adventure in the US, I miss my country tremendously and teaching and speaking my own language is one of the things that excites me the most. I have also travelled Italy and most of Europe extensively, and I love discussing about all the different cultural environments that I've experienced.

I have experience with languages and grammar, and I know that everyone learn in a different way, for some people is easier than for others. My challenge is to find what is easier for you

I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different things.

About Stefania P.

Close
Chicago, IL

I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

About Stefania
I am Italian. I moved to Canada first and the US next in my thirties. I love teaching. I own a retail training and consulting company. I have taught Italian on and off over the years and have always loved doing it. I am very passionate about the topics I teach and have a clear understanding of the complexities of learning and most importantly remembering things that are new to us. Hence, my obsession with repetition and never move to the next lesson until prior ones are fully mastered. I use multiple tricks to make a lesson engaging, different and fun to attend.

I enjoyed today, my first lesson with Delia. She asked questions and listened to the answers. I felt encouraged by her relaxed and flexible teaching style. She was patient. She waited for me while I took note. She repeated words and concepts that I didn't understand. We had created a learning plan, started to work on it. I feel hopeful I will finally be able to learn Italian. ;-)

Hi everybody, I am a native Italian speaker and speak English and Spanish.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology of Marketing and Comunication and
I have tutored children and adults at different age levels for the past 5 years.
My approach is communicative and believe that the best way to learn a new Language is applying that to real-life situation: a language is first of all culture, travel, food, and everyday life. So if you want to focus on both grammar or conversation, or if you want to study Italian for work or just for fun, with my lessons you'll always learn something new about Italian culture!
