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.

About Andrea

I have been teaching professionally for the past 15 years and love it. Academically, I hold two degrees (production & performance) cum laude at the prestigious Berklee College Of Music in Massachusetts and have ever since worked as a guitarist, bassist and producer. I was fortunate enough to work

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!

My first lesson was wonderful!! Mya is a kind and patient teacher, I can’t wait until my next lesson!!!
Lia
I started taking Italian lessons from Mya a year ago, and after finding out she's also a music teacher I decided to give it a try, Best decision ever! Not only Mya is the best Italian teacher I've had (she's very detailed oriented and helps me tremendously with my pronunciation) but she's also an experienced and skilled music teacher. After only a few classes, I was able to play decent music with my violin!

I focus on using the language as quickly as possible. It is important to verbalize immediately. Grammar is very standard in Italian and I teach it, but reinforce it mainly through usage, spending most of the time on vocabulary and communication.

About Jeannie

I have been in theatre since I was a child. My first love was acting until I was bitten by the directing bug when I realized I could watch my baby be born as the play came to life. To support myself while going through my theatre degrees, I worked with computer and became certified with Microsoft a

I've had 5 lessons with Benedetta and she is fantastic. She focuses on technique which is so important for singers to master. I made progress after my first lesson and each week she teaches me something new. I highly recommend her and if you want results, she'll help you get to the level you want to achieve!
