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)

Private Italian Teacher

Hi everyone,

I think as an American, I have a unique approach to teaching Italian since I was in the shoes of the student for many years. I began studying Italian more than 12 years ago in high school, and after living in Italy and receiving my MA in Italian, I am still passionate about learning about all things Italian. I have a love and understanding for grammar but I know how to make it fun, not overbearing. I approach teaching with passion and dedication, and I like to keep things lighthearted and include lots of movies, music, and real dialogue, not just drills and exercises.

About Annabelle

Love my new teacher. It's nice having a fresh perspective on my area of study. I'll hopefully be privileged enough to have her long enough to reach a comfortable level of speech and beyond. Give her a raise she works hard at her job. Communicates well too.

I give Gina a 5 star because it doesn't have a 10. She is awesome, smart, fun, and caring. I take Spanish and makes so much easier because she also speaks fluent Portuguese (my native language), and she can explain the difference between both language. I highly recommend Gina :)

My lessons build beginners from a point of zero or basic knowledge of Italian to the point at which they will feel comfortable reading intermediate texts, chatting with native speakers, and understanding the majority of content they find online such as YouTube videos or podcasts. We will use a communicative approach founded upon comprehensible input, which research has shown is the most effective method for true acquisition of a language, as opposed to simply learning about the language. We will mostly be working through l'Italiano Secondo il Metodo Natura, which is perfect both for people with no prior Italian experience or for people who have studied Italian previously through more traditional methods and wish to fill the gaps in their knowledge. Upon completion of this text and other supplementary materials, you will be at a solid intermediate level.

In addition, for students who are interested, using my linguistics background, I can train you to pronounce Italian with a ...

Raphael is a fantastic instructor who provides informative, effective, and highly enjoyable lessons.

He's a master of languages, which means that he is able to easily and comprehensibly explain even complex language functions, and provide interesting facts and explanations about the origins of words and grammatical features, and the links between different languages, drawing on his wealth of knowledge.

Most importantly, the lessons are incredibly engaging, and Raphael ensures that the way in which you go through the material and learn is matched to your ability, whilst teaching you practical use of the language.

I was initially somewhat apprehensive about learning languages online, and about the somewhat different "immersion" approach suggested by Raphael, but after a little while now I can say that with Raphael as my teacher, it has been far more effective in a shorter period than any extended period of university study or self-directed study has been for me before!
Luke
One of the best teachers I’ve ever met! Incredibly knowledgeable in phonetics, and a natural master of the language. I’ve learned more from Raphael than any teacher in my life.
Araceli
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Yes! I finally get it, all thanks to Raphael Turrigiano. I’ve learned more from Raphael in only a few weeks than I’ve ever had in years of trying to self-teach and even taking college courses.

Trust in his process. With Raphael’s lesson plans, guidance, and support, he will help you build a strong foundation in your Italian language learning skills.

My first day meeting with Raphael, I was nervous and not sure if I was going to be able to learn much since I have failed many times before, but he was so kind, friendly, professional, informative, and fun. I instantly felt comfortable with him. He assured me that I was going to learn the Italian language and all was going to be okay. It’s been a pleasure working with him since.

My lessons with Raphael are very informative. He is extremely knowledgeable, observant, has quickly mastered how I learn and explains the language to me to where I understand it. In addition, he shares fun facts, culture, and history about the language along the way. Plus, he is teaching me how to speak like a native. Raphael an amazing teacher and will help you.
