Private Italian Teacher

I'm an experienced Italian teacher - I was born and raised in Italy and I graduated from the University "La Sapienza" in Rome with a Master Degree in Italian Literature and History. I've been teaching Italian and Italian history for the past 10 years of my career. Both in Colleges here in the U.S.A. and online.
I offer a very proficient method of learning. Part of the lesson would be focused on the grammar and writing, part of the lesson would consist in one to one conversation. Depending on the level of my students, we would develop the vocabulary on a daily basis and I can guarantee my students will be able to have a conversation in Italian within just a few lessons!

Maya is awesome! She's really easy and fun to work with, patient and really, really knows her stuff. I am an actor and she gave me exactly what I needed for my current project, and I plan to work with her more to develop accurate dialects/accents. Thrilled with her work!

Daniela has been my teacher since eight year of the English course that I do in the Company I work for.
She is a very good teacher for many reasons but first of all she has a characteristic that all teachers should have, empathy.
She doesn’t use the classic teaching method of the school, I find her method more effective because it’s easy and logical so more understandable for all the people.
I improved a lot with her even just doing one hour a week of lessons and I gained more confidence especially in speaking.
Carla
Daniela has been my daughters' teacher for eight years and my teacher for one year. We are completely satisfied with her english lessons both at home and online. She is really competent and enthusiast ! My older daughter was able to live for one year in the USA as an exchange student thanks to Daniela's classes.

Ciao/ Hello! My name is Francesca. I was born and raised in Italy. I have been teaching Italian since 2008 at levels ranging from beginner to advanced and to all ages. My lessons are fun, dynamic, and flexible. They intended to develop speaking, listening, writing and reading skills and offer fun conversation on a variety of topics. Students learn the language through practical examples of daily life situations. Each lesson can be tailored to the students’ needs. I have also tailored my lessons for students that want to learn the Italian language for traveling purposes. Learning a language goes hand in hand with understanding the culture. My lessons are focused on using the Italian culture to provide the setting that helps the students learn the language and feel comfortable and confident when speaking to native Italian speaking persons.

I would highly recommend Francesca Bruni as an Italian teacher! She has been my Italian teacher for a number of years! Her ability to instruct vocabulary, grammar and comprehension all woven together with themes of Italian culture has provided me with a rapid acquisition of essential and enjoyable conversation skills. Not only are Francesca’s instructional materials relevant and engaging, but whether presented in an in-person manner or online virtual setting, allow for a highly successful experience. You will be amazed at how quickly you will become a fluent Italian speaker, reader, and writer!

Francesca is a fabulous teacher. We are an adult upper intermediate level class who have been with Francesca for several years. Her classes are small and we are all totally engaged. She takes a keen interest in each of us and our individual
needs. In addition to grammar, dictation, homework, Francesca focuses on advanced readings from Italian stories to newspaper articles, and on only speaking Italian. To improve our speaking we start with students telling about their week and/or making oral presentations to the class based on an Italian news article a student has found of interest. These presentations provide an opening for more conversation and for identification of lots of new vocabulary. Francesca is patient and makes sure we each participate. The environment she creates is one where it's OK to make mistakes and where we can have fun learning and laugh with each other. Francesca's sense of humor makes our classes even more fun.
Shahrooz
Love my sessions with Professoressa Bruni. She is energetic, exiting and always prepared with new and fun lessons. She makes me feel like I am physically in Italy and learning not just the language, but also the culture. She uses her real life experiences, as a native Italian, to help me want to learn more about the language, culture, art, philosophy, food and all that is exciting about Italy. I look forward to my lessons with her and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Italian.

Online 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

Yulia is very personable. I liked that she had a lesson plan, as well as spending a good part of the lesson in conversation (which I requested.) I felt very comfortable trying to speak in Italian to her, and didn't feel at all nervous or embarrassed about making mistakes.

Next week, I am leaving for Italy for three weeks. Although I am still not fluent in Italian, my lessons from Simona have greatly improved both my competence and my confidence in using the language. Simona is a wonderful teacher, with wonderful tact as well as a thorough knowledge of English as well as Italian.

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

"I took lessons with Sabrina over several years in small group settings. She always made the meetings fun and addressed the group's individual needs. She was always prepared with great ideas. Sabrina gave me confidence to engage in conversation in Italy on my early trips and then helped me prepare for a 2-week course at a language school in Italy. I was able to get into one of the more advanced classes, thanks in large part to Sabrina's tutoring. I was sad to move away from Sabrina's location and the opportunity for classes but am happy to see the online option."
