Private Italian Teacher

I am a native Italian speaker who has been teaching and tutoring for several years.

I love to teach and to guide my students on a journey that is not only about grammar, language, but also a cultural and idiomatic one.

Join me in this learning adventure of my language and country.

About ENRICO

I am a native Italian speaker with a several years of experience in teaching Italian and English. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.

I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Verona, Italy. I was tutoring English, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching English while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to Los Angeles. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime I tutored Italian to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and Italian subjects.

I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker,

I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities. However, it is important to consider other points like grammar, reading, writing. I also think that no matter what a teacher should always take into account the needs of the students and subsequently I plan my classes reflecting on the student's demands.

As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting. Of course, there are some exceptions. For instance, in the past I taught for a while TOEFL and for that type of classes I used more traditionalist and academic methods and materials.

One of my greatest passion is to cook. I was extremely lucky to be taught and introduced to the art of cooking by my grandmother. She was born at the beginning of the previous century and she lived in different cities so she got accustomed to different traditions and shared them with me. I love to cook for smaller groups, using traditional Italian ingredients to prepare simple, but exquisite dishes that belong to the tradition of my native country. If you want to experience some real Italian food, you are definitely in the right hands. Just sit back, relax sip a glass of Italian wine while I cook for you and I share my art.

Buon giorno! My name is Rosalia. I was born and raised in a small town in Northern Italy. I did classical studies in high school and I have a MA in Business Administration.

Private Italian Teacher

I was born in Italy and lived there for 36 years. I went to school there and I have a Bachelor Degree from one of the oldest Universities in Europe, the University of Verona. Before college, I attended the Liceo Linguistico, where I extensively studied Italian Grammar in connection to Latin, French and German. I can honestly say I master the Italian grammar in all of its structures.
I have been working in Customer Service for an American Bank in Italy for the last 10 years. In addition to that, I have been tutoring students of different ages, Elementary School all the way to High School, since I was in college. The subjects I covered were for the most part English, Italian and Math. I was also tutoring adults who wanted to learn English as beginners or improve their conversation skills. I loved my job at the bank, but at the same time there was nothing more satisfying than seeing my students succeed: I have always enjoyed helping people improve their communication skills and improve ...

About Francesca

I was born and raised in Vicenza, an hour west from Venice. My husband is American, we met in Italy and after living together there for 15 years, we decided to move back to the US last Summer. We have two kids, 7 and 4, who are perfectly bilingual.
I have always enjoyed teaching English to little kids and adult friends in Italy, so I can only enjoy teaching Italian even more. Although I'm enjoying this adventure in the US, I miss my country tremendously and teaching and speaking my own language is one of the things that excites me the most. I have also travelled Italy and most of Europe extensively, and I love discussing about all the different cultural environments that I've experienced.

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.

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 😃

Delia is a great teacher. She has helped me understand what to expect in certain situations and how to ask for things. For example, when I go to order a drink in a special way, or when not to order certain things, etc. She is providing me with very relevant words and phrases that I will use a lot while visiting Italy. This is going to help me a lot. I'm looking forward to our next lesson!

Hi everybody, I am a native Italian speaker and speak English and Spanish.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology of Marketing and Comunication and
I have tutored children and adults at different age levels for the past 5 years.
My approach is communicative and believe that the best way to learn a new Language is applying that to real-life situation: a language is first of all culture, travel, food, and everyday life. So if you want to focus on both grammar or conversation, or if you want to study Italian for work or just for fun, with my lessons you'll always learn something new about Italian culture!

About Anna

Hi everybody I'm Anna, i'm Italian and I live in California from 13 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology of Marketing and I have been teaching Italian for the past years.

I teach Italian language to speak with confident and clarity. I'm specialized in teaching grammar and I push my students to speak Italian as much as possible during the lessons in a friendly atmosphere. This is a great way to improve or learn Italian in a reasonable time frame.

I love to travel, to teach and to cook Italian recipes for my friends and family!

I strongly recommend her to anyone near the early intermediate level of Italian.

10 Common Italian Stereotypes That Are Actually True

Italy, the land of contemporary fashion, historical art and... men who adore their mothers, hand-gesturing enthusiasts, and gatherings about Dante? Actually, yes!
