Private Italian Teacher

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)

Aliaksandra has been excellent with our 8 year old daughter. I’m very happy we found her and that she is close enough to come to our house. Our daughter loves her lessons and is learning so much :)

Online Italian Teacher

I'm a Certified Interpreter in Italian (along with Romanian, French, Spanish, and Portuguese) by the Defense Language Institute Monterrey, California.
Since middle school I loved foreign languages which proved to be very rewarding starting with high school when traveling around the world with shooting competitions.

Study groups are welcome at a special rate.
Living in Italy and traveling countries on five continents allowed me the affinity of learning more about the culture but also develop preferences for myself.

I guarantee results.

Learning any foreign language opens doors in life whether on personal or professional level, and I sincerely believe that anybody can learn anything disregarding their age; in fact, I have friends who late in life decided to learn foreign languages or various skills that they always wanted to learn, so, I encourage you to do the same.

About Isabela

Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teachin

Isabela is a great instructor. She explains things very well and takes time to make sure you understand before moving on. Her pace is quick, like a real conversation. Five stars for sure.

Warm and enthusiastic even with slower learners (i. e. Me)

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.
