I’m a Native Speaker with over 10 years experience with tutoring. My lessons are fun and dynamic, they integrate grammar, conversation and culture. Students learn the language through practical examples of daily life situations, that can be conveniently applied during a trip to Italy! We learn about Italian food recipies, music, and much more.
There’s no learning a language without understanding the culture and viceverse :) All lessons can be tailored to the student’s needs.

I am a graduate of Brown University with honors in Italian Studies and Performance Studies. I am a fluent speaker, having lived in Florence, Rome, and Sicily. I work with students to improve their understanding of grammar, their pronunciation, reading comprehension, vocabulary, conversation skills, and writing. I also have an extensive knowledge of Italian culture, history, and literature from my studies and research and am happy to share this with interested students. At Brown, I tutored students in the Italian Department through the dean of the college's tutoring center, and I have worked as a tutor with students of all levels in Providence and New York.

Private Italian Teacher

I was born in Italy and lived there for 36 years. I went to school there and I have a Bachelor Degree from one of the oldest Universities in Europe, the University of Verona. Before college, I attended the Liceo Linguistico, where I extensively studied Italian Grammar in connection to Latin, French and German. I can honestly say I master the Italian grammar in all of its structures.
I am professional, flexible and I strive to meet my students’ goals no matter what level that they are at. I plan, prepare, and deliver lessons tailored to a range of age groups, levels, individual goals and interests. I myself speak 4 languages and studied Latin in addition to that, and I believe that exposure is the only way to really learn another language. This is why I use conversation on regular basis during my lessons, to make sure my students can actively use what they are learning with confidence, starting with simple phrases and then gradually build up to more complex ones.

Please note ...

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.

About Simona

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,

Online 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!

"Maria is an excellent and enthusiastic teacher. She has been my teacher both in a classroom and in private and semi-private lessons, and although we now meet in- home, I know she also does online lessons. I love her energy and humor and the way she makes our lessons fun and interesting. Her enthusiasm is contagious. She introduces Italian culture, art, music, food and history into the lessons, opening my eyes to new things to enjoy and giving me a better understanding of Italy's rich past and present. Her lessons are always well prepared, and yet she is careful to respond to a student's individual learning style and interests. When I was a kid in school, I tried to avoid learning a foreign language, thinking it would be boring and difficult. Since I have started studying Italian, I have learned how foolish I was. It is so much fun to speak Italian, to travel to Italy and to be able to better appreciate that wonderful country and culture. A good teacher makes all the difference, and Maria is excellent."

Italian Lessons in Brooklyn, NY

By Giulio G. - New York Italian Teacher

If you would like take Italian lessons in Brooklyn, I am Giulio, and I would be happy to introduce to you some local NYC resources. Whether you are an Italian culture lover or just planning to visit Italy soon, New York City is surely the best place to start learning this fascinating language, full of history. The best way to learn a new language and become more confident is to become immersed in the Italian community. Thankfully, if you live in Brooklyn, you don’t need to take an eight-hour flight to find Italian speakers. You can study right here in New York while having fun and making new friends!

Check out these exciting events and interesting places in New York that will introduce you to the Italian language and culture:

  1. Little Italy Little Italy has many original Italian stores and restaurants. When many of the first Italian immigrants reached New York City, they lived in this part of Manhattan. Each year, during the last two weeks of September, they celebrated an authentic, religious feast called the Feast of San Giovanni to make them feel as though they never left their home country. This celebration survives today, enticing Italians and non-Italians alike on Mulberry Street in the original Little Italy neighborhood. Here, you can also find the Italian American Museum, situated on the corner of Mulberry and Grand Street. You can learn about the plight of Italian-Americans and their contributions to American society.

  2. Clubs and Events New York City has more Italian clubs than you could ever imagine! To name one, New York Italians is a non-profit organization that strives to retain the rich history and culture of Italians. According to their website, they offer cultural events, culinary programs, language classes, educational lectures, and charities. You can see all the exciting programs on their website, www.newyorkitalians.org.

To check out a whole calendar of events in New York City, go to www.iitaly.org. This website is brimming with great cultural activities that guarantee your immersion within the Italian community. For example, you can find lectures on Donatello’s sculptures, modern Italian art contributions, Italian food meetings, tourism, and much more. Usually, there are about three to four Italian events per day.

Another way introduce yourself to the Italian community in New York City is the Italian Institute of Culture in New York, or Istituto Italiano di Cultura di New York. They’re open to the public during the workweek and also have a website www.iicnewyork.esteri.it. Here, you can find a calendar of events, language courses, an online library, and opportunities for members.

  1. Eataly Lucky for New Yorkers, an authentic Italian grocery store and restaurant, Eataly, is available to you in the Gramercy neighborhood near the Flat Iron Building. Eataly isn't just a culinary experience; it makes you feel like you're enjoying the genuine taste of Italy. Additionally, there are words plastered on the wall both in English and Italian, teaching you about cultural facts. What a fun, alternative way to increase your lexis!

With these resources, hopefully you can increase your Italian language and cultural knowledge while taking Italian lessons in Brooklyn. Have fun exploring!
