Private Italian Teacher

I'm an experienced Italian teacher - I was born and raised in Italy and I graduated from the University "La Sapienza" in Rome with a Master Degree in Italian Literature and History. I've been teaching Italian and Italian history for the past 10 years of my career. Both in Colleges here in the U.S.A. and online.
I offer a very proficient method of learning. Part of the lesson would be focused on the grammar and writing, part of the lesson would consist in one to one conversation. Depending on the level of my students, we would develop the vocabulary on a daily basis and I can guarantee my students will be able to have a conversation in Italian within just a few lessons!

I am a native speaker of the Italian language, I have helped many people achieve the level of Italian they wanted to reach. Whether you just want to learn how to carry a conversation or learn Italian literature and culture in depth, I can get you there. Being born and raised there I can also make sure you do not learn any false or inaccurate notions as I have seen many people learn that had studied from books or American teachers (I hate to sound arrogant but I speak out of experience). I can also teach Sicilian dialect and literature should you be interested in that.

Daniela has been my teacher since eight year of the English course that I do in the Company I work for.
She is a very good teacher for many reasons but first of all she has a characteristic that all teachers should have, empathy.
She doesn’t use the classic teaching method of the school, I find her method more effective because it’s easy and logical so more understandable for all the people.
I improved a lot with her even just doing one hour a week of lessons and I gained more confidence especially in speaking.
Carla
Daniela has been my daughters' teacher for eight years and my teacher for one year. We are completely satisfied with her english lessons both at home and online. She is really competent and enthusiast ! My older daughter was able to live for one year in the USA as an exchange student thanks to Daniela's classes.

"Silvana is a fantastic teacher! She has a very structured/objective based, yet highly adaptable approach to teaching, which has been extremely effective. She is super patient and has manner of delivery which I have found to be very re-assuring but also challenging when required. I have to admit that I am not the most confident language learner, she takes this into account and pushes just enough without being overbearing. I'd say she is capable of teaching Italian to any level/objective. Whether your aim is basic travel communication or fluency. Highly recommended!"

She ensures that everyone in class understands the material, taking the time to review material and provide additional explanations as needed. Her assignments are reasonable and include traditional exercises, as well as writing and reading simple dialogues.

Maria is so much more than an Italian teacher, infusing the class with Italian culture, song, history and her great sense of humor. I have thoroughly enjoyed being in her class, have learned a great deal, and would highly recommend her to all levels of students. She is a real gem!"

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 Italian 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!

5 Most Common Italian Pronunciation Mistakes

Do you want to speak like an Italian native? Below, Italian teacher Giulio G. shares the five most common Italian pronunciation mistakes and how to avoid them... Italian is a relatively phonetic language, which means that almost each grapheme corresponds to a singular phoneme. In other words, the Italian language is spoken as it is written. Thanks to this characteristic of the language, it is easy to learn proper Italian pronunciation just by knowing the alphabet. However, there ar …
