I speak a high intermediate level of Italian so if you are looking for lessons and you are just beginning I would love to help.

About Christopher
Hello! Hola! Benvenuto! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, composer, polyglot, and experienced language and music teacher.

I am a recent graduate with a Masters of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. There I studied with the world-renowned guitarist Eliot Fisk who is a direct student of the legendary guitarist Andres Segovia.

Currently I work part time teaching 12 students guitar at the University of South Carolina, in Columbia. I also I teach ukulele, Spanish, Italian, and English to a variety of students online. At the same time I am pursuing a Doctoral degree from the university to strengthen my skills as a guitarist and expand my knowledge as a teacher for higher education. I have also just completed my debut album titled, "Anima - The Music of Spain and Italy for the Gu
itar."

This album is a tribute and memorial to an amazing journey I had traveling and living in Europe for 3 years.

After I graduated from my undergraduate degree, I realized that in order to better my skills as a musician and become the guitar teacher I wanted to be I had to travel abroad. I moved to Seville, Spain where for three years I studied the art of classical and flamenco guitar.

I studied with a international known Spanish guitarist named Francisco Bernier at the Conservatory in Seville. During this time I was also teaching English as a second language to high school and middle school students. From traveling and spending so much time in Europe, I also developed and studied my love of languages and I became fluent in Spanish and Italian.

The experienced was an experience of a lifetime and I made many friends working and living abroad that to this day, I still keep in contact with.

If you are interested in having lessons with me, please contact me and we can begin learning the art of making beautiful music or learning the beautiful languages of the Mediterranean! "Hasta pronto!" "A presto!" and "Speak to you soon!"

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.

I provide customized lessons based on the student's specific need. I believe immersion is the best way to learn a language (that is how I learned English), therefore I try to minimize English interactions during the lessons. I also give practical exercises for the students to do between lessons. Unless specially requested by the students, my lessons are not grammar-heavy but are more focused on useful Italian conversations to help the students become comfortable speaking and understanding.

About Karen
My mission is to help everyone, from beginner to expert, feel comfortable engaging in Italian conversations and believing that learning a second language is not only necessary but possible!

I provide lessons to people of all ages determined to learn or improve Italian. Each lesson is customized based on the specific needs of each student and the goals they are ready to achieve.

~Parlare é la chiave per imparare~

Cancellation or reschedule policy: If you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson, I will be happy to do so but would require 24 hours notice prior to your scheduled lesson time.

I grew up in Italy so I speak fluent Italian. I've been tutoring students here in the US for many years now. I focus on give the students almost immediately the tools to start talking with small useful sentences to make them able to say small elementary sentences at first than moving to a more complicated use of the language. I focus on pronunciation, dictionary and grammar (being Italian a pretty complicated language). I work individually with each student in order to achieve each student's goals.

About Fabio
My name is Fabio I'm a professional singer based in New York city.
I graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music with a bachelor degree in Jazz Vocal Performance.

I stress a lot on breathing exercises and in the exploring each one's sound in order to achieve my student's goals.

Thank you for your time and consideration!

I am a native Italian speaker who has lived in Italy until I moved to the US for my undergraduate degree. I have been living in the US for the past 10 years and returning to visit my family and friends in Italy several times a year.
I believe learning Italian with me will be fun and effective because aside from my first language which is Italian, I speak several different languages and I know what learning a foreign language entails.

About Natasa
I am a native Italian speaker that moved to Southern California a few years ago for my University degree and decided to stay and build a life here. I love living in the US but I also miss my country and my family and I enjoy connecting with people that want to learn or improve their knowledge of the Italian language.
I also have a 2 year old daughter to whom I speak only Italian and it has been a fun process so watch her learn and now speak to me in my own language.
I customize my teaching sessions based on the student's goals and current language proficiency to maximize their time and efforts and get them speaking Italian step by step.
