Pasta. Pizza. Spaghetti. As Americans, we're pretty familiar with Italian food. But do any of us know the language? Do you know the difference between when you should say "bravo" or "brava" in a concert? Whether you need help for an exam, or are about to study abroad, I'll help you learn Italian and improve your pronunciation so that you're ready to go!

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.

About Yulia

Hello there, how are you? I’m from Milan, Italy I live in the USA. I moved here because I really wanted to learn English. My biggest passion is traveling because I think it’s the best way to know the culture of the countries and to learn new languages. The Italian language is really beautiful, and

First of all, I would like to teach my native language in a fun and easy way. My experience with foreign language made me a firm believer that conversation is the most effective way to learn a different language. I am going to use most of the time in random yet targeted discussions about different topics. Grammar rules and vocabulary will also be included in each lesson. Of course I would be more than happy to adjust and modify this structure based on the student needs:)

About Silvia

Hey everyone! My name is Silvia and I was born and raised in Italy. I hold a Bachelor Degree in Translation and Interpreting and my 2 main study languages were English and Spanish. I have always loved the feeling of being able to speak other languages besides mine and this is the main reason why I

My Italian lessons are fun and they include many aspect of the language and not just cut and dry grammar. We talk, we write, we read, we learn about the culture, art, geography and history of the country and much more. We sing and we play skits to practice the language.

 Plan, prepare and deliver Italian lessons to several level from beginning to more advanced students.
 Teach students to speak, comprehend, read and write in Italian language. Provide instruction in the culture and the literature of the Italian language.
 Adapt the lessons to the needs of the student and write reports to track their progress.

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

"Simona is amazing! I’m picking italian up faster than I thought because of how well she teaches it. My 2 kids are joining in every other session and are loving it! My younger son takes the first 15 minutes because his attention span is shorter. Then my 10 year old daughter and I finish the session together. I couldn’t be happier!"

"I have always had difficulty learning a new language and the prospect of trying again was daunting but Massimo’s personality and approach immediately put me at ease. From the very first lesson with Massimo it was clear to me that he has a passion to help students achieve their potential regardless of their level or ability. He is not your traditional tutor who simply teaches from a text book (i.e. my high school language teachers), but he incorporates the Italian culture into his lessons and makes learning fun! Not only is Massimo an excellent tutor but he is flexible. I am a working professional so there have been occasions when I could not make our session due to travel or meetings, he has always worked with me to reschedule, which has been essential in my progress. I cannot say enough about how great Massimo has been as a tutor. As a side note, his cooking is stupendous. I have not taken a cooking class (but that is on my bucket list) but I have had the pleasure of dining at his house with his family and it was truly an unforgettable meal."
