Ciao/ Hello! My name is Francesca. I was born and raised in Italy. I have been teaching Italian since 2008 at levels ranging from beginner to advanced and to all ages. My lessons are fun, dynamic, and flexible. They intended to develop speaking, listening, writing and reading skills and offer fun conversation on a variety of topics. Students learn the language through practical examples of daily life situations. Each lesson can be tailored to the students’ needs. I have also tailored my lessons for students that want to learn the Italian language for traveling purposes. Learning a language goes hand in hand with understanding the culture. My lessons are focused on using the Italian culture to provide the setting that helps the students learn the language and feel comfortable and confident when speaking to native Italian speaking persons.

I would highly recommend Francesca Bruni as an Italian teacher! She has been my Italian teacher for a number of years! Her ability to instruct vocabulary, grammar and comprehension all woven together with themes of Italian culture has provided me with a rapid acquisition of essential and enjoyable conversation skills. Not only are Francesca’s instructional materials relevant and engaging, but whether presented in an in-person manner or online virtual setting, allow for a highly successful experience. You will be amazed at how quickly you will become a fluent Italian speaker, reader, and writer!

Francesca is a fabulous teacher. We are an adult upper intermediate level class who have been with Francesca for several years. Her classes are small and we are all totally engaged. She takes a keen interest in each of us and our individual
needs. In addition to grammar, dictation, homework, Francesca focuses on advanced readings from Italian stories to newspaper articles, and on only speaking Italian. To improve our speaking we start with students telling about their week and/or making oral presentations to the class based on an Italian news article a student has found of interest. These presentations provide an opening for more conversation and for identification of lots of new vocabulary. Francesca is patient and makes sure we each participate. The environment she creates is one where it's OK to make mistakes and where we can have fun learning and laugh with each other. Francesca's sense of humor makes our classes even more fun.

Love my sessions with Professoressa Bruni. She is energetic, exiting and always prepared with new and fun lessons. She makes me feel like I am physically in Italy and learning not just the language, but also the culture. She uses her real life experiences, as a native Italian, to help me want to learn more about the language, culture, art, philosophy, food and all that is exciting about Italy. I look forward to my lessons with her and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Italian.

Hi, my name is Daniela, I’ve taught for 20 years in schools, companies or privately to students any age. I’m bilingual and I can teach Italian and ESL English. Currently I’m living in Italy and I’m very often in the US. Studying a foreign language can be challenging but I’m convinced that learning

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.

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.

Private Italian Teacher

I was born, grew up and studied in Italy, in a city near Venice.
I am friendly, open-minded and professional.
I like teaching because it gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience: I have always loved to investigate the grammar and lexical peculiarities of this language.
My lessons are flexible and dynamic, they include grammar, conversation and international current topics. Among my objectives is the teaching with practical examples of daily life and the comparation beetween english and italian, if it helps.

About Isabella

I'm patiente and I love teach flute. I think scales, arpeggios and long notes are fundamental to be able to face with all of the repertoire.

Thanks to my background in Phonetics/Linguistics and Education, I am able to target specific pronunciation issues and practically how to fix them. I love teaching and mentoring, especially in regard to language as I am a language learner myself. I have spent time as an Au Pair in Italy, where my main job was teaching Italian children the English language. After spending time in a small, non-English speaking town in Italy, I understand the difficulty that comes with learning a language (especially Italian!) and the best strategies that have worked for me and people I know. Thanks to my education background, I also know the strategies proven to be more effective and lasting. My second language is Italian and I understand a bit of Spanish as well.

Perche studiavo educazione e logopedia all'università, sono un esperto della pronuncia inglese. Non solo questo, ma anche come pronunciamo le parole praticamente. Adoro insegnare, soprattutto le lingue perché sto imparando le lingue ...

Hello there!

Tutoring has always been my passion and I’ve taught more then 60 students.

I started tutoring back when I was in school in Milan, Italy. I was tutoring French, Art History and some other subject.
Seeing students succeeding and being proud of their hard work is what matters to me. My teaching methodology changes according to the students’ needs.

Yulia is very personable. I liked that she had a lesson plan, as well as spending a good part of the lesson in conversation (which I requested.) I felt very comfortable trying to speak in Italian to her, and didn't feel at all nervous or embarrassed about making mistakes.

Italian Grammar: Exploring Cognates and False Cognates

Italian grammar can be a tough thing for beginners to master. Below, Italian teacher Giulio G. gives a brief lesson in recognizing Italian cognates and false cognates... Although English and Italian belong to two different language families, they have lexis similarities. In fact, it is estimated that around 30 percent of the English vocabulary comes from Romance and Latin sources. It's for this exact reason why it is possible to find many cognates--or words that sound or are spelled …
