Nadia B.

New York, NY

Italian is my passion, and I am skilled in sharing the details and intricacies of Italian with you so that you can speak easily, communicate well and understand with ease. I am a summa cum laude graduate from New York University, with a double degree in Italian Language and Literature and Classical Music Performance. I also lived in Italy, which provided me with direct experience of the culture and language as it is used on a daily basis by native speakers.

I focus on strengthening the basics, increasing comprehension, vocabulary and speaking skills and developing a strong sense of Italian grammar.

My lessons are based around your needs and interests in Italian.

Ive had a couple of Alexander instructors and Nadia by far is the best. She explains things in a way that makes sense and I'm seeing progress. She is wonderful!

Nadia is a really warm, engaging teacher. Perfect for my 2 beginners (age 7 and age 5). They were adamantly against taking piano lessons before I signed them up with Nadia, but now they are eagerly practicing at the piano and studying their lessons. What a gem!

Nadia is wonderful and our girls love working with her. She is extremely patient. This is their first piano teacher, and they went from dreading the first lesson to looking forward to their weekly lesson!

Karin B.

Denver, CO

I've been teaching Italian for many years and my students have gone on to understand and love the language. I've lived in Italy 8 years.
Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand basic verbs and sentence structure, and as time goes on you'll be able to speak confidently and clearly, with great pronunciation. I specialize in Italian conversation, typically use Racconti Simpatici and A Beginner's Italian books, and have notecards available for your lessons. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I have had such a great experience with Karin! From the first lesson she was so positive and made me feel so comfortable. She has also recommended great material for me to practice at home (movies, apps, and books). She has helped me so much and I always look forward to our time together. Book some lessons with Karin and you will be so happy you did!

Karin is a great instructor. She is punctual, pleasant and patient and knowledgeable. Our first meeting was in my home, but I was uncomfortable having Karin drive so far to teach me, so we agreed to meet exactly half way, at a Panera restaurant. This has worked out well for us and it forces me speak Italian in public. I realize that I am not surrounded by Italian speakers there who might judge my pronunciation, but just speaking in public was a big hurdle for me to overcome. We have had three one-hour lessons together and I plan to continue until I achieve a passable fluency that will allow me to experience Italy outside of the large cities, where fewer people speak English, but where much of the natural beauty is found. Karin will surely be able to help me attain this goal.

Hello! As a native Italian speaker, I've lived in Florence my entire life until I recently moved to New York. I've been tutoring for 5 years and have many long-term students. I attend the University of Florence for languages and linguistics, specializing in Italian and English. Also, I have worked for a translation company and continue to translate Italian and English works.
I'm very excited to help all levels of Italian students and can also provide specialized cultural-inclusive lessons!
