Private Italian Teacher

Ciao a tutti! Hello everyone! My name is Cindy and I'm Italian. I've been teaching Italian in schools and privately for many years now...I was raised in Rome where I have lived and worked for most of my life.

Do you want to learn Italian in a natural way, outside the bounds of a traditional language school? Studying a foreign language is an absorbing, complex experience.

It involves not only mastering new words, but also gaining a deeper understanding of the culture in which the language is rooted. To achieve this goal I devote all my enthusiasm, my skill at communication, and a sense of humor which makes for a relaxed study environment.

I was so impressed with Cynthia's teaching style in my first lesson and her keen ability to pace the lessons with what I know and need to know. I am very much looking forward to our future lessons and know that with her teaching, I can reach my goal to speak Italian.

My Italian lessons are not only language lessons, but a deep walk into the Italian culture. When i teach my native language, as I did in Italy with private students also, I make sure that my lessons becomes a mix of grammar, syntax, phonetics, culture and costumes.
I truly believe that learning a language means learning the culture of an another country.

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.

My first experience with Valentina. She was engaging and was interested in learning what level I was at and how she could help. Should be a fun experience.
Vito C.
Wow! Valentina and I made an instant connection. I am amazed at not only how she obviously knows Italian but how she knows the structure of English in relation to Italian. Looking forward to developing my Italian language skills
Gomer S.
Our high school son was studying a semester in Italy and knew no Italian. We hired Valentina after reading the great reviews and were more than pleased. She was flexible and accommodating to a very tight schedule and our son learned a lot from her. She sprinkled in some cultural and historical lessons on Italy but primarily language. Valentina is high energy, organized and a great teacher. High marks for punctuality, personality and teaching! She even offered to help him once in Italy which we may explore if needed. Thanks Valentina! A wonderful experience.

I highly recommend anyone struggling to grasp Italian to take her course. With her help I was able to pull my Italian grade around and ace the final exam. I cannot thank her enough for working with my busy schedule.

Thank you Delia for helping me. I am pleased to say I successfully achieved the grade I needed for my program.

"Learning a language is difficult work. It requires patience, a sincere desire and a willingness to make mistakes without being discouraged. But most of all, learning a new language needs a great teacher. And that’s what I found in Beatrice. What made me chose her at first was that Italian is her mother tongue. What made me keep her as my instructor is her teaching style. She tailored the lessons to my needs, which where more conversational in my case. She has a keen ability to identify my strengths and use them to bolster my confidence while helping me work on my weakness (which she refers to as challenges) but not focusing on them to the point where I lose interest. She made it fun and informative beyond the grammar and pronunciation. Being Italian she added a cultural context and stories that I found amusing. Beatrice made learning Italian something we both can be proud of."
