I've been teaching Italian since 2003 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of its culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll understand why Italian is one of the most beautiful languages of the world, and as time goes on you’ll love it forever. I lived in Italy for almost a year and I would like to share my experience about it with you. I love working with students of all ages and levels and I can't wait to meet you! Ti aspetto. A presto)

I have a conversation-based curriculum I designed based on my 5 years of teaching introductory Italian. My lessons are fun and get you communicating in the language as quickly as possible. The book I send you will outline the basics of Italian grammar, and we fill in with additional vocabulary according to student interest.

About Peter

I love sharing knowledge! Math has always been a passion for me, and I competed in several math competitions even in elementary school. Since then I have tutored many students in math from a fourth grade level to college math. I scored a 34 on the ACT and I enjoy helping others achieve their dreams

Peter has an excellent lesson plan waiting for you on day one with easy to follow study material. You will learn how to properly speak, read, and write in Italian in no time. He keeps track of your progress and assigns homework to increase your proficiency and vocabulary. He is a wealth of knowledge about the language and the culture; so much that he even knows how it changes throughout the country and will educate you on it. His experience in Italy was such a benefit for me because where I now live in Italy, the locals speak Neapolitan Italian and he was able to help me adjust to my new surroundings and even find a home! I recommend that you choose Peter as your new Italian instructor! You will not regret it!

"I have been through 3 Italian lessons via Skype with Valentina and she has been wonderful! I have a tricky schedule, and she has been very flexible and patient with finding time for me and my many time changes. Her lessons are very clear and put together well and she is patient and helpful with her teachings. She will take extra time to make sure everything is clear and understood before moving onto the next topic. I can't wait to continue learning Italian with Valentina!"

Italian Language Classes in Washington, DC

Deeply rooted in Latin, standard Italian is a relatively young language compared to others. In fact, many regions in Italy spoke completely different dialects until the country's unification in 1861. Modern Italian, spoken today, has its origins in Tuscany's original dialect.

About 63 million people around the world speak Italian. Although it’s spoken less than languages like English and French, Italian is still the official language of Italy, Vatican City, Switzerland, and San Marino. Knowing your way around this Romance language will open the door to experiencing breathtaking travel opportunities and classically rich cultures.
