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.

About ENRICO
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.

*** Lesson Details ***
Customized lessons to the students' needs and goals.

*** Specialties ***
- T.E.F.L. Certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign Language

- Italian Native Speaker with a several year experience in teaching Italian

- M.A in Foreign Languages and Literature (English and French)

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.

From the get go I knew I had found the perfect teacher,
Enrico is a motivating teacher.
He challenges you to learn what you need by reading and discussing interesting materials he sends .it isn't just not doing verbs exercises and tenses but actually participating in actual situations as if you were in Italy .
Enrico quickly helps you get over the nervousness that students experience when reading out loud and discussing the meaning of words in sentences and their uses.

I have been teaching Italian for 3 years in British public and private schools. My students develop not only knowledge of the language but also understanding of the Italy. I am passionate about my country and I like to teach Italian for that reason! With a degree in teaching I have learn to use a variety of learning methods to best suite my students: mnemonic, musical or using movements. Languages don't need to be boring!

About Martina
I am an Italian living in Las Vegas since 2013. I have started teaching in 2010, first as an outdoor instructor and then as a language teacher in both private and state school in the UK, and as a private tutor in the USA. I am passionate about languages, in particular my mother tongue Italian, and Spanish, because they open new doors and allow for better communication and intercultural understanding. I aim to engage my students with a variety of teaching techniques to keep them interested, challenged and having fun!

I love the outdoors. I am a climber, ski instructor and a professional photographer.

Pasta. Pizza. Spaghetti. As Americans, we're pretty familiar with Italian food. But do any of us know the language? Do you know the difference between when you should say "bravo" or "brava" in a concert? Whether you need help for an exam, or are about to study abroad, I'll help you learn Italian and improve your pronunciation so that you're ready to go!

San Jose, CA

I have been teaching for several years. Initially, teaching was just a way to earn some money during the university, but gradually I discovered that it was a real passion. In Italy I used to be a lawyer, so my job allowed me to get a rich and refined vocabulary. I am passionate, patient and I am very happy when my students thank me for my help. My strong point is that I can understand my student 100%: I am a student too (I am learning English) and I know what they expect from a teacher.

About Antonietta
I moved to the Bay Area from Italy, where I used to be a lawyer. During my studies, I used to give private lessons of law and help children doing homework. My passion has always been teaching: I love my language, I am patient and I am very happy to help you learning Italian and my culture.

Antonietta has been wonderful with my 11 year old daughter, who is studying Italian in preparation for a summer trip to Italy. Antonietta is patient and ensures my daughter understands the lesson before moving on. She provides effective exercises that reinforce the concepts, which then can be used as a study guide between lessons. And just as important, my daughter likes working with her. I'm glad we chose Antonietta!

My whole life I was drawn to Italy since my father's parents were born there, and I always wanted to learn everything about that side of me, especially the beautiful language. In spring 2005 I studied abroad in Florence and rapidly became fluent, and in fall 2005 I returned to Florence University to study Latin literature with other Italian students.

Thanks to my father who speaks Italian, I could converse before I arrived in Florence, but many students who came after me were not so lucky. When I returned to Lehigh University in 2006, budget cuts had forced the cancellation of the Italian language program, despite the high volume of my fellow students who annually go to Florence. Awful though this was, the Study Abroad Department hired me to teach Italian night classes at Lehigh for my remaining two years in college, permitting a hundred students to study abroad in Florence with basic Italian language skills. Since 2006 I have also tutored dozens of students one-on-one.

About Luke
I am deeply passionate about sharing knowledge with others and have been lucky to be teaching my entire adult life. There are so many enriching experiences available to us when we learn more about the world.

Foreign languages are among my favorites, and I have specialized in teaching Latin, Italian, and Japanese. As a geologist, I am also profoundly interested in the sciences. When I teach I like to understand where my students are coming from, what really inspires them, and help them to enjoy and love what they want to learn. For me, learning is always fun, so whether you like to study or you are having trouble motivating yourself to concentrate, together we will discover the joy and fun in what you are studying.
