I've been teaching Italian since 2003 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of its culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll understand why Italian is one of the most beautiful languages of the world, and as time goes on you’ll love it forever. I lived in Italy for almost a year and I would like to share my experience about it with you. I love working with students of all ages and levels and I can't wait to meet you! Ti aspetto. A presto)

I would highly, highly recommend lessons with Aliaksandra! She really cares about her students' learning, tailors the lessons to individual learning needs, has a lot of interesting and helpful materials, and is incredibly knowledgeable about Russian and languages in general. Moreover, I was really nervous about speaking Russian again in 12 years and she made me feel incredibly comfortable doing so.

Hi Future Students,

If you love the Italian culture and would like to learn how to speak Italian, I'm your girl!! I studied for 4 years in college and moved there for some time. I can help you with your hw and I can also help you, if you just want to learn some basic phrases to get around.

About Deborah
I have so many different things I teach. If you are looking for a voice teacher, I definitely can be of help. I have been singing all of my life. I sing in many different genres like pop, gospel, R&B, and classical. I can even help if you want to be an opera singer, as I am studying to be one myself at the Aaron Copland of Music. First things we would start to do is learn how to breathe. After the student understands good breath, then we will apply it to actual singing.

I also teach Italian, and have taught the language for 3 years in a private school. I lived in Italy for a while and I just love the language. If anyone needs a tutor, I can help!

I also teach art history, and art as far as drawing and painting. So if any parent wants for their child learn how to express themselves through painting or drawing, I can do that as well!!


I love to do all of these things, as I have a great passion for them! I hope I can inspire someone else.

Deborah's expertise and professionalism are a pleasant surprise when you consider how young she is. I have met teachers that are decades older than her who do not have the ability to accurately tell you exactly what you are doing wrong or how you can correct it. You hear a lot of, "just keep practicing and it will sort itself out" from other instructors, and this could cause you to develop bad habits that could affect your voice. Deborah is the opposite of that.

She pinpoints exactly what I am doing wrong during my lesson and offers suggestions on how to correct it going forward. I appreciate that because if your instructor doesn't tell you, your audience will. And you might not like how they say it. I am there to go beyond just singing in the shower, and her constructive criticism only makes me better. She is also polite when she corrects you, she's not cracking the whip.

She focuses immediately on different techniques that will help you improve your voice so that you can PROGRESS, instead of just banging out scales on the piano lesson after lesson and overlooking mistakes a student may make like some instructors do. I hate to be this blunt, but there are some instructors I have met in the past who do just that (none of them are from takelessons) to me it shows a devotion to the art and a commitment to bringing out the best voice that you have she wants you to be as good as her! To me no one could ask for any more than that in a voice instructor. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a teacher.

Just as she promise ;work on breathing first, usually I like some time go by before I make a comment but the first introduction went so well, I have a positive outlook of my future practice. I have my questions answer and I also understand them as well. I am sure I have more and have confidence they will be answer....

Palmetto, GA

I was born and raised in Rome and move to the U.S. to pursue my dream. I provide customized lessons based on the student's specific need. I believe immersion is the best way to learn a language (that is how I learned English), therefore I try to minimize English interactions during the lessons. I also give practical exercises for the students to do between lessons. Unless specifically requested by the students, my lessons are typically not grammar-heavy but are more focused on useful Italian conversations to help the students become comfortable speaking and understanding.

About Karen
My mission is to help everyone, from beginner to expert, feel comfortable engaging in Italian conversations and believing that learning a second language is not only necessary but possible!

I provide lessons to people of all ages determined to learn or improve Italian. Each lesson is customized based on the specific needs of each student and the goals they are ready to achieve.

~Parlare é la chiave per imparare~

Cancellation or reschedule policy: If you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson, I will be happy to do so but would require 24 hours notice prior to your scheduled lesson time. After the 24h notice period, the full amount of the lesson will be charged. Emergencies are excluded.

I'm three classes in, and so far am very happy with Karen as a tutor. She is a great teacher, very patient, and has a ton of prepared tools and activities to help scaffold learning the material. She is also well versed in the structure of language so we can talk things like articles, reflexive verbs, etc. I love the verb chart! She clearly has a lot of experience and knows what she's doing. I'm excited to learn a ton more from Karen!

Being a native Italian and having lived in Rome for over 30 years gives me the necessary knowledge to know what is needed in order to learn the Italian language and get deeper into the Italian culture. Also having over 20 years of teaching experience allows me to tailor my knowledge to the need of every particular student. I really enjoy to transfer my knowledge and solve the unique problems that every student encounter during their path.

His instrumental tone, sensitivity and imagination, and melodic approach to a supposedly clumsy instrument brought him to perform and record with many established musicians.

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.

About Stefania
I am Italian. I moved to Canada first and the US next in my thirties. I love teaching. I own a retail training and consulting company. I have taught Italian on and off over the years and have always loved doing it. I am very passionate about the topics I teach and have a clear understanding of the complexities of learning and most importantly remembering things that are new to us. Hence, my obsession with repetition and never move to the next lesson until prior ones are fully mastered. I use multiple tricks to make a lesson engaging, different and fun to attend.

I am passionate about helping people communicate and understand each other in other languages.

I was born and raised in Rome, Italy and lived around the world for the past 10 years. I have a Master in Global Management and work in the Translation industry.

Are you preparing the speech at your wedding with an Italian partner? Are you planning a trip to Italy? Do you want your kids to grow bi-lingual? I am here to engaged you and make this a fun learning journey.

I think one of best ways to learn a language is through music. Let's pick a song and figure out the rest! I also love to travel and will be happy to prepare you for your next trip ( tips, restaurants, local sayings, etc).
I am looking forward to meeting you!

About Sara
I help people communicate in different languages everyday, my biggest passions are to help people learn Italian and to help students in succeeding no matter if it is for a test, exam or college/ school application.

Born and raised in Rome, Italy I graduated from John Cabot University in Business Administration and Marketing and I earned a Master Degree in Global Management from Fordham University in NY.

I am a native Italian speaker and speak English and Spanish. One of my favorite ways to learn a language is through songs. We can pick a song you like and take it from there. My approach is to find something that you are interested in and build a program around it: travel, workout, fashion, food, business etc.

I have tutored children and adults at different age levels for the past 10 years in English, Test Prep, College Applications, S
cholarship Applications, Business, Marketing and Math. I have guided students and helped to get through exams, admission papers, applications, resume building and worked with students ( including myself) to win thousands of dollars in scholarships.

I can tailor the classes according to your needs:

Italian: general knowledge, trip preparation, wedding speeches, business language.

Admission/ College and Test Prep: we will put together a plan that takes into account where you stand now, deadlines, grade or goal, your availability and I will make sure to push you to get where you want to be.
