I started teaching Italian in 1985, in McAllen, Texas, as a private tutor. I again kept tutoring Italian, this time for freshmen college students in Sugar Land, Texas in 2015. I am an Italian native speaker, and at the present time I am writing short stories in Italian.

Private Italian Teacher

I have been living for a year in Italy, Bologna (2007-2008). I started to learn Italian there. It seemed to be hard. With time, it has been becoming more natural. This is a beautiful language one can learn.

I picked up most of my Italian work for an Italian organization for 7 years. Now it is my past. However, Italian is still my present and I would love to share my knowledge with those who learn Italian.
I will customize the lesson for each student. The most important is trust between a teacher and a student. If you feel I could help you, I would love to help.

Mi piacerebbe di trovare il modo di condividere con gli altri quello che ho imparato io. Grazie! Alla prossima!

Amazing teacher, was able to cover so much ground on the first day alone. She will definitely get you where you need to go and is very nice and helpful.
Anastassiya
I appreciated the lessons with Irina. She helped me a lot with my English.

She managed to find the closest way for me to start speaking. I'd say her superpower is good knowledge of the subject together with the good awareness of how human mind works. It makes the learning highly effective.

Irina, thank you!
Stephen
Only language teacher, who has lot of patience to address your queries, appreciate it. She can also touch upon various literary works which would ignite further interest in language learning. Much recommended.

Private Italian Teacher

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 am professional, flexible and I strive to meet my students’ goals no matter what level that they are at. I plan, prepare, and deliver lessons tailored to a range of age groups, levels, individual goals and interests. I myself speak 4 languages and studied Latin in addition to that, and I believe that exposure is the only way to really learn another language. This is why I use conversation on regular basis during my lessons, to make sure my students can actively use what they are learning with confidence, starting with simple phrases and then gradually build up to more complex ones.

Please note ...

Learning Italian in Los Angeles

By Dalila Bianco—Italian Teacher in Los Angeles

As an Italian native speaker born and raised in Italy, I find my job teaching Italian lessons in Los Angeles so interesting. Los Angeles is a city where very few people speak Italian; nonetheless a lot of people are passionate about my country, language, and culture. I enjoy Los Angeles because it incorporates so many different backgrounds which gives me (and others) the opportunity to learn and understand different cultures and habits.

In my opinion, the hardest thing about learning Italian is pronunciation and the complex grammar. Although many Italian and English words share the same roots, the two languages are completely different in terms of grammar, structure and phonetic. So, one of the keys to better understanding It

...

alian is immersing yourself in the culture and, of course, having conversations with native speakers. Below are a few points of interest and events around Los Angeles that can help you improve your Italian:

Annual Feast of San Gennaro If you want to explore a little deeper into the culture of Italy, I would recommend attending the Annual Feast of San Gennaro in Los Angeles, taking place Sept. 26-28. The festival celebrates Italian culture, food, and entertainment. Attendees are entertained by live music, street performers, and, of course, food. Wine and food tastings are provided by local wineries and restaurants. Guests are invited to learn recipes from original Italian chefs. What a great opportunity to discover Italian traditions, while learning to cook some delicious pasta!

Hollywood and Westside Los Angeles Italian Language Meetup Another way to discover Italian traditions and practice the language is to join the Hollywood and Westside Los Angeles Italian Language Meetup. The Meetup is organized by a group of Italian language speakers who share a love for the Italian language and culture. With more than 1,598 Italian speakers, the group is one of the most popular Italian Language Meetups in the U.S. Upon joining the group, you will start to speak, read, and write in Italian in no time. In fact, the best way to develop your language skills is having conversations, possibly with native speakers. There’s no better opportunity to practice Italian and make some new friends. Italians are very friendly and sociable, so be ready to have fun!

Italian American Museum of Los Angeles Want to learn more about the history of Italy? The Italian American Museum, located just minutes from the civic and financial districts, is an interactive museum in which people can go to learn about the history and contributions of Italian Americans throughout Los Angeles and the U.S. The museum boasts film screenings, language classes, and visual and performing exhibits.

I love giving Italian lessons in Los Angeles, especially because I can teach more than just the language. The pronunciation, the phonetics, and the culture behind the language makes my work amazing!
