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, 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.

Ciao,

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,

Susan is a wonderful French teacher both for adults and kids. We have had her as an in-home teacher for both over the past few years during the school year. She is very patient with the kids and keeps it fun for them, and also is a great conversationalist with the adults. I can’t recommend her enough. She is also versatile enough to teach German as well.

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!

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 have been working in Customer Service for an American Bank in Italy for the last 10 years. In addition to that, I have been tutoring students of different ages, Elementary School all the way to High School, since I was in college. The subjects I covered were for the most part English, Italian and Math. I was also tutoring adults who wanted to learn English as beginners or improve their conversation skills. I loved my job at the bank, but at the same time there was nothing more satisfying than seeing my students succeed: I have always enjoyed helping people improve their communication skills and improve ...

About Francesca

I was born and raised in Vicenza, an hour west from Venice. My husband is American, we met in Italy and after living together there for 15 years, we decided to move back to the US last Summer. We have two kids, 7 and 4, who are perfectly bilingual.
I have always enjoyed teaching English to little kids and adult friends in Italy, so I can only enjoy teaching Italian even more. Although I'm enjoying this adventure in the US, I miss my country tremendously and teaching and speaking my own language is one of the things that excites me the most. I have also travelled Italy and most of Europe extensively, and I love discussing about all the different cultural environments that I've experienced.

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!

About Daniela

Hi, my name is Daniela, I’ve taught for 20 years in schools, companies or privately to students any age. I’m bilingual and I can teach Italian and ESL English. Currently I’m living in Italy and I’m very often in the US. Studying a foreign language can be challenging but I’m convinced that learning can be much easier and more effective while you’re having fun! Let me share a small hint: studying is like eating, better leave the table while you’re still hungry and eat only what you like: next studying session you’ll remember all the fun you had and not how tired or bored you were the previous time.

Faith
"Sabrina is an excellent teacher. She is responsive, knowledgable, organized, and kind. My husband and I began our instruction in the classroom setting,
and we were so impressed with her skill that we migrated to private lessons. We enjoyed our lessons, and were assisted in our instruction with relevant handouts, homework, and of course, our emailed questions were always promptly answered. Highly recommended."

Benjamin
"Today's lesson was so fun, and the instruction was very helpful. Since the last lesson was cut short because of my poor internet connection, all of the lo
st time was made up for, without being requested, the whole lesson just as thorough and beneficial as an average length lesson. I can't wait until next time."

Peggy
"Valentina is very personable and seems really interested in helping me. I enjoyed my time with her!"
Leah
"This is my 3rd attempt at learning Italian and the first time I have a teacher that explains things in a way I can understand. Silvana is patient and enco
uraging, while pushing me to work hard. I have struggled with the idea of conjugation in the past but she has made it understandable for me. I'm thrilled to have found her and look forward to each lesson and even my homework assignments."

Victoria
"Victoria really enjoyed her first lesson with Simona! She was friendly, knowledgable, and personable."
Patrick
"Mirella is an amazing language instructor. I had studied Italian for a few years many years ago and was very nervous to start again, but I needed to show
intermediate Italian abilities for my work. Mirella's warm personality and student-centered teaching style really put me at ease and unlocked my hidden intuitive foreign language energies and abilities. For Mirella, language is all about communication, and the realization under Mirella's guidance that we all know how to communicate--even if only roughly at first in a new language--greatly diminished my anxiety and self-consciousness at making inevitable mistakes. I looked forward to Mirella's lessons as a highlight of my week, with tremendous results!"

"My first lesson with Yulia went great! she was extremely patient and encouraging. Can't wait for my next lesson."
George
"Silvana is a fantastic teacher! She has a very structured/objective based, yet highly adaptable approach to teaching, which has been extremely effective.
She is super patient and has manner of delivery which I have found to be very re-assuring but also challenging when required. I have to admit that I am not the most confident language learner, she takes this into account and pushes just enough without being overbearing. I'd say she is capable of teaching Italian to any level/objective. Whether your aim is basic travel communication or fluency. Highly recommended!"

5 Most Common Italian Pronunciation Mistakes

By Suzy S.

Do you want to speak like an Italian native? Below, Italian teacher Giulio G. shares the five most common Italian pronunciation mistakes and how to avoid them... Italian is a relatively phonetic language, which means that almost each grapheme corresponds to a singular phoneme. In other words, the Italian language is spoken as it is written. Thanks to this characteristic of the language, it is easy to learn proper Italian pronunciation just by knowing the alphabet. However, there ar …
