I have been teaching Italian for 5 years now, I have traveled to Italy numerous times spending time with Italian-only speaking families and I enjoy talking about almost anything Italian. If you are looking for lessons and you are just beginning or have been speaking for some time I would love to help you improve your knowledge of the language to become a fluent speaker.

About Christopher
Hello! Hola! Benvenuto! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, composer, polyglot, and experienced language and music teacher.

I am a recent graduate with a Doctorate of Music Arts degree from the University of South Carolina. I also graduated with my M.M. fro the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. There I studied with the world-renowned guitarist Eliot Fisk who is a direct student of the legendary guitarist Andres Segovia.

Currently, I work part-time teaching 12 students guitar at the University of South Carolina, in Columbia. I also teach ukulele, Spanish, Italian, and English to a variety of students online. I have also just completed my debut album titled, "Anima - The Music of Spain and Italy for the Guitar." This album is a tribute and memorial to an amazing journey I had traveling and living
in Europe for 3 years.

After I graduated from my undergraduate degree, I realized that in order to better my skills as a musician and become the guitar teacher I wanted to be I had to travel abroad. I moved to Seville, Spain where for three years I studied the art of classical and flamenco guitar.

I studied with an internationally known Spanish guitarist named Francisco Bernier at the Conservatory in Seville. During this time I was also teaching English as a second language to high school and middle school students. From traveling and spending so much time in Europe, I also developed and studied my love of languages and I became fluent in Spanish and Italian.

The experienced was an experience of a lifetime and I made many friends working and living abroad that to this day, I still keep in contact with.

If you are interested in having lessons with me, please contact me and we can begin learning the art of making beautiful music or learning the beautiful languages of the Mediterranean! "Hasta pronto!" "A presto!" and "Speak to you soon!"

I was born and raise in Italy, moved to the US few years ago.
I have been an Italian teacher for many years.
I can teach you from the basic to an advanced level

About Simona
I was born and raised in Italy. When I moved to the States in 2005, I barely spoke English.
That's why I decided to start teaching Italian. I know how difficult it is to go to a foreign country and not be able to buy something as simple as bread.

I will send you links, we will read together, watch videos, talk to each other. No need to buy any book with me, I will send you everything.

Are you ready to learn? Because I am happy to teach you.

About Stefania P.

Close
Chicago, IL
View Full Profile

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 change and neither does the quality of my lesson.

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.

Delia spent time finding out my reasons for wanting to learn Italian, my background with other languages, etc. She shared with me some of the differences between the 2 languages, which helped me learn. Bottom line, I learned a lot in a short amount of time! Looking forward to our next lesson.

I'm going to make you speak! Don't worry about making mistakes, that's how we learn. Italian is a language that I love. While it is a second language for me, I do everything I can to keep up with my vocabulary and grammar. I spent a year post-college in Italy and recently a month in order to improve my speaking abilities. As such, I can teach you some fun idioms in addition to the basic language!

About Brooke
I am currently a PhD student studying epidemiology and infectious disease. I've worked all over the world and am comfortable with lots of different people. I am happy to tailor my lessons to how you learn. I love helping those studying increase their knowledge and succeed!

I was an English Language teaching assistant in Italy after I graduated college in 2008. I also am familiar with private lessons as I tutored adults in English during my time abroad, as well.

As a public health professional I have often needed to lead educational sessions on good clinical practices, malaria biology and other various topics.

About mirella V.

Baltimore, MD
View Full Profile

Hi! My name is Mirella. I am a certified teacher both in Italy (where I come from) and in the US (where I currently live). I have over 15 years of experience teaching a highly diverse student population.
My classes are conducted in Italian with some English (used mostly in the beginning as a support). I train students to conceptualize in Italian rather than translate or substitute words: as students learn, for example, "Buon giorno. Come stai?" at their first lesson, there is no longer a need to translate it as "Good morning. How are you?" With this approach, vocabulary enrichment grows throughout the course. I strongly emphasize conversation (with a continued focus on pronunciation and inflection) and cultural knowledge over grammar and syntactical studies.

About mirella
Hi! My name is Mirella. I was born and raised in Lecce, a small and beautiful city in Southern Italy. I received my Master’s degree in Philosophy from the University of Bologna and my PhD in Political Theory from University of Wales, UK. I am a certified teacher in Italy as well as in the US. After living and working in the UK, I moved back to Lecce and in 2017 I, my two kids and my husband Patrick, I moved to the US, Patrick's homeland. Here in the US, in beautiful Baltimore I started my teaching career as an Italian tutor.
