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 :)

My 8 year daughter is taking one-on-one French lessons with Ms Aliaksandra. She has taken 3 lessons so far and loving it. I was invited to observe her last lesson and I am absolutely impressed with Ms Aliaksandra’s teaching. She speaks only French during the lesson, exposing my daughter to the language. She started with everyday things but is also using them in simple sentences. My daughter loves her lessons and can’t wait for the next one. She practice at home as well so she can make her teacher! We are glad to have found Ms Aliaksandra.

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!

About Nicole

Nicole is available to teach lessons for students of all levels. Beginning her singing career when she was 7, she most recently sang at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, was a winner of the international CS Competition in musical theatre, and is a Chicago F.A.M.E. finalist for Jazz and popular music. Combined with her training and professional experience, Nicole teaches singers to switch gracefully between multiple styles. She practices what she preaches: one night she might be singing Beyoncé, and the next morning she might be singing Handel's Messiah!

Nicole has been a young artist for Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Metropolitan International Music Festival, and for Tiroler Opern Programm, under international instructors, including Elizabeth Bachman (from the Metropolitan Opera), Kim Josephson (Metropolitan Opera), Sharon Cheng (Caramoor),

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Italian Teacher

Gina has a BA and MA in Italian language and literature. She grew up with the Italian language in her family and is currently very active with Italian language groups in her community - including participating in Italian conversation groups, Italian film clubs and Italian music festivals. She travels extensively throughout Italy and is very happy to share her passion for the Italian language.

About Gina

Hello!
I am Gina and I am a specialist in Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French. I have been teaching and tutoring foreign languages since 1990. I teach adults, college students, high school and elementary students. I have taught in schools, community programs, language classes for businesses, in person and online. I can help you prepare for an exam or class, teach you language for business or travel- or just for the love of the language.

I have been multilingual since a young age and have always had a passion for languages. I studied multiple languages in school and went on to earn both a Bachelors and a Masters degree (University of Connecticut) in Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French language and literature.

I am an active member of multiple foreign language groups in my community, including the Alliance Française of Ch

arleston, Nuovo Cinema Italiano film club, Dante Society of Charleston, Cercle Littéraire, Brasileiros em Charleston, Conversemos en Español, and other conversation and language groups.

I do translation and interpretation work, travel extensively, do foreign language tours and am very passionate about sharing my love of the Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French languages.

My focus in teaching is how to acquire a foreign language just as one acquires their native language, making that language a part of one’s life.

Whether you are brand new to the language or have been studying for awhile- I would love to be your guide on your language journey!

I Connected very well with Gina. The fact that I’m Brazilian and she also speaks Portuguese is perfect.
She can show the difference and the mistakes we Brazilian do when we speak Spanish. Looking forward our next lesson.
Thanks Gina

Gina is very flexible with her teaching approach. She meets me at my level. She slows down when I may not be grasping a concept and speeds up to keep me engaged.
I would whole-heartedly recommend her!

Private Italian Teacher

As a native Italian who has lived in several Italian cities including Rome for over 30 years, I have a comprehensive understanding of the Italian language and culture. Along with my knowledge and experience as a native Italian speaker, I also have over 20 years of activity as an educator, which allows me to tailor to the needs of my students. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge and helping my students along their path of learning the Italian language.

About Andrea

Bassist and composer Andrea performs extensively within the improvised music scene, across a broad spectrum of genres. His instrumental tone, sensitivity and imagination, and melodic approach to a supposedly clumsy instrument brought him to perform and record with many established musicians. Based in New York City, his work as an instrumentalist and composer can be regularly heard at the top jazz clubs in the city and around the globe.

As a current faculty member of the New York Jazz Workshop, Andrea is a dedicated educator. He has taught master classes at the National Institute of Music and the National University of Costa Rica, at the Boğaziçi University in Istanbul, Turkey and at the Olav Duun Videregående Skole in Namsos, Norway. He also served as an adjunct professor at New York University, where he graduated in 2011 with a Master

of Music Degree in Performance with a Concentration in Jazz as a Fulbright scholarship recipient.

Andrea is the best. He's personable, prompt, flexible yet clear, a pleasure to work with. He has given weekly Italian lessons to me and my wife in our home. We can't recommend him highly enough.

Private Italian Teacher

I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

About Stefania

I am Italian. I moved to Canada first and the US next in my thirties. I love teaching. I own a retail training and consulting company. I have taught Italian on and off over the years and have always loved doing it. I am very passionate about the topics I teach and have a clear understanding of the complexities of learning and most importantly remembering things that are new to us. Hence, my obsession with repetition and never move to the next lesson until prior ones are fully mastered. I use multiple tricks to make a lesson engaging, different and fun to attend.

My hourly fee accounts for the fact that I am available to give in person lessons (more effective than online), can accommodate a student's busy schedule and my hourly rate can be for one or more students at a time. So, if you have family of friends who can come with you which

would allow you to share in the cost, my fee does not change and neither does the quality of my lessons.

Stefania was a great teacher, full of energy and encouragement. She customized the lesson plan for our needs (traveling to Italy, and wanting a crash course in conversational Italian). She made the learning fun, and even made the grammar piece (the hardest part of Italian) go quick! I feel motivated to study for our next lesson, and look forward to it.

Private Italian Teacher

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 I think it’s also pretty easy to learn it if you really want to 😃

Yulia is so encouraging. She smiled through all my mistakes and her patience very calmly moved us through a great learning experience for me. I had questioned the whole idea of on-line training, but now I'm sold. Excellent!

I am fully Italian and grew up here in Miami so I speak English and Spanish fluently as well. I can give lessons from English and from Spanish to Italian.

About Luisa

Hi! I am a singer/songwriter and actress.

I am graduating from Berklee College of Music, after studying at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami for 3 years (I majored in Music Business with a minor in song writing).

I just moved back to Miami from living in Los Angeles for 2 years to write and record my EP. During my time in LA, I also furthered my training in acting for film and songwriting. I also shadowed videographers in LA and learned how to film and edit videos, which is why I opened a vlog channel to support my music.

I have been performing ever since I was a child. Some of my most important performances include: performing duets with Phil Collins both in Miami and in Switzerland, singing the National Anthem at the Heat Quarterfinals in 2013, being on THE VOICE in Italy, performing my original songs at a Phil C

ollins foundation in Paris, being the opening act for the United Nation's International Year of Youth in New York City, and performing the National Anthem at the Miami Open.

I speak and sing in 3 languages - English, Spanish, and Italian. I am originally from Rome, Italy.

I am completely aware of all musical genres, and especially what is current at the moment. I encourage students to bring in whatever music they feel is best for them and also challenging. Being a songwriter, I persuade students to bring in their own songs (if they write) so that we can work on the songs and most importantly, performing them. My main goal is that students become great performers, while primarily having mastered their technique for their vocal health and longevity.

"I took Italian lesson's with Massimo and it was great! He took traditional learning and made it fun. He is very open to suggestions and to adjust for each
person's learning style. We talked about the possibility of doing a fun outing for example going out in town and using our Italian only to talk about what is happening and what we are doing. A bit challenging but well worth it!"
