I am a native Italian speaker who has been teaching and tutoring for several years.
I love to teach and to guide my students on a journey that is not only about grammar, language, but also a cultural and idiomatic one.
Join me in this learning adventure of my language and country.
I am a native Italian speaker with a several years of experience in teaching Italian and English. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.
I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Verona, Italy. I was tutoring English, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching English while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to Los Angeles. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime I tutored Italian to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and Italian subjects.
I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker,
I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities. However, it is important to consider other points like grammar, reading, writing. I also think that no matter what a teacher should always take into account the needs of the students and subsequently I plan my classes reflecting on the student's demands.
As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting. Of course, there are some exceptions. For instance, in the past I taught for a while TOEFL and for that type of classes I used more traditionalist and academic methods and materials.

One of my greatest passion is to cook. I was extremely lucky to be taught and introduced to the art of cooking by my grandmother. She was born at the beginning of the previous century and she lived in different cities so she got accustomed to different traditions and shared them with me. I love to cook for smaller groups, using traditional Italian ingredients to prepare simple, but exquisite dishes that belong to the tradition of my native country. If you want to experience some real Italian food, you are definitely in the right hands. Just sit back, relax sip a glass of Italian wine while I cook for you and I share my art.
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
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.
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.

Simona did a great job with my first lesson. She got me speaking Italian right away, and that is very helpful. The 45-minute lesson was fun and also challenging. I recommend her highly,
Fun, warm and inviting classes. Experience in working with all levels from children to adults and with people who have learning differences. Variety of pedagogical resources tailored to individual or group.
Ciao a tutti! Hi to everyone! At my previous school in CA, teachers and students dubbed my classes "la fiesta" . Fun and serious learning happened by incorporating a variety of pedagogical approaches . In addition to singing, dancing, dramatic play, the curriculum also incorporated guided books, writing , reading and puzzles from a wealth of resources. MA from Middlebury College and Universita' Di Firenze in Italian Art and Literature. Completed doctorate classes at NYU. Teaches children thorough adults and beginning through intermediate classes! A presto!
Giuliana is a wonderful teacher and guide for Italian language and culture. I really enjoyed our small class and she managed our different levels of experience very gracefully. We all learned a great deal over the course of a year together and we miss her immensely!

Giuliana is the most patient and encouraging teacher that I have yet encountered. She truly strives to make Italian entertaining as well as simple. Prior to my lessons with her, learning a whole new language seemed to be a daunting task, as well as the seemingly insurmountable goal of losing my native accent while speaking. Through our online lessons, she has taught me grammar and a vast vocabulary that served me very well in my trip to Italy. If there is one teacher who can truly teach the language quickly and easily, it's Giuliana.

Giuliana is an extraordinary teacher and instructor who makes learning fun and exciting. She is patient and accommodating, and has a true knack and talent for making sure you truly understand the material. I highly recommend her

About Silvana Saber
Hi, there! My name is Silvana and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students in grade 6, 7,8,9,10,11, and 12.

I have experience with languages and grammar, and I know that everyone learn in a different way, for some people is easier than for others. My challenge is to find what is easier for you
I love teaching, but I hate boring classes, so I always try to do different things to get the goal, which is learning. I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different things.
I'm an Italian teacher in my 30's. I teached Italian in Italy (Milan) at primary school, thus I know very well what could be the troubles for the beginners and how to fix it as quick as students can. In addition, I'm a graduated in Economics and Management (M. Sc.).
I'm a Italian native speaker with +4 years of experience teaching Italian at primary school and to immigrants / refugees that would like to learn Italian. I base my approach on Student levels, aims and needs.
I'd like to start with my student from the beginning, finding out tricks of my beautiful language. I prefer conversation and real-life examples to teach Italian in a really pragmatic way.
I suggest everyone to reach me in my building on west side Manhattan, because I have quite library for tutoring and you will really enjoy it.
Hello students! I'm Delia, and I was born and raised in Italy! I am attended the "Liceo Classico" in Catania. Due to its rigorous curriculum and numerous notable alumni, my high school is considered the most prestigious secondary school students can attend throughout Italy. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs of each student. Not only will you be speaking Italian "presto presto," but you will be able to enjoy and feel the Italian culture like a real "paisan"!. PS. Of course, Italian food and recipes are included in the classes!
Ciao Ragazzi! I am Delia! I am from Sicily, and I have been living in Pensacola (FL) for two years! I am deeply in love with Italy and with Italian food, and I am also a good cook too (don't worry I love to share my recipes!). I can't wait to share with you the beauty of the Italian language!
It was so nice meeting Delia this morning. She already feels like an old friend and is very willing to be flexible with schedules.

Delia is a great teacher. She has helped me understand what to expect in certain situations and how to ask for things. For example, when I go to order a drink in a special way, or when not to order certain things, etc. She is providing me with very relevant words and phrases that I will use a lot while visiting Italy. This is going to help me a lot. I'm looking forward to our next lesson!
I am fully Italian and grew up here in Miami so I speak English and Spanish fluently as well. I can give lessons from English and from Spanish to Italian.
Hi! I am a singer/songwriter and actress.
I am graduating from Berklee College of Music, after studying at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami for 3 years (I majored in Music Business with a minor in song writing).
I just moved back to Miami from living in Los Angeles for 2 years to write and record my EP. During my time in LA, I also furthered my training in acting for film and songwriting. I also shadowed videographers in LA and learned how to film and edit videos, which is why I opened a vlog channel to support my music.
I have been performing ever since I was a child. Some of my most important performances include: performing duets with Phil Collins both in Miami and in Switzerland, singing the National Anthem at the Heat Quarterfinals in 2013, being on THE VOICE in Italy, performing my original songs at a Phil C
ollins foundation in Paris, being the opening act for the United Nation's International Year of Youth in New York City, and performing the National Anthem at the Miami Open.
I speak and sing in 3 languages - English, Spanish, and Italian. I am originally from Rome, Italy.
I am completely aware of all musical genres, and especially what is current at the moment. I encourage students to bring in whatever music they feel is best for them and also challenging. Being a songwriter, I persuade students to bring in their own songs (if they write) so that we can work on the songs and most importantly, performing them. My main goal is that students become great performers, while primarily having mastered their technique for their vocal health and longevity.
