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.

Giulio is one of the best language teachers I have ever had. I have studied French, Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. Giulio does an excellent job at referencing what I know and moving me forward quickly, but not so quickly that I get lost or miss anything important.

I knew a bit of french going in and needed to practice listening skills and conversation. It was a lot of work, I have far to go in being comfortably conversational, but this was the jumpstart I needed to know what I needed to do going forward. Thanks Daniel!

After my first lesson I already feel more confident that I will be able to communicate some in Italian while on vacation in Italy. Daniel is an excellent teacher who is very knowledgeable in many languages. He made me feel comfortable right away.
He has a plethora of experiences from living and working abroad. He brought simple techniques/strategies that helped me understand grammar and pronunciation.
I have homework, can't wait for my next lesson. Ciao

I grew up in Italy so I speak fluent Italian. I've been tutoring students here in the US for many years now. I focus on give the students almost immediately the tools to start talking with small useful sentences to make them able to say small elementary sentences at first than moving to a more complicated use of the language. I focus on pronunciation, dictionary and grammar (being Italian a pretty complicated language). I work individually with each student in order to achieve each student's goals.

About Fabio
My name is Fabio I'm a professional singer based in New York city.
I graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music with a bachelor degree in Jazz Vocal Performance.

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. Based in New York City, his work as an instrumentalist and composer can be regularly heard at the top jazz clubs in the city and around the globe.

As a current faculty member of the New York Jazz Workshop, Andrea Veneziani is a dedicated educator.

I had a wonderful time learning with Adriana before my recent trip to Italy. It was my first time, and I thought it would be nice to know some useful phrases before I went. Not only is Adriana an excellent teacher of the Italian language (I was only able to just tap into her expertise given the little time I gave us before my trip), but she also has extensive knowledge of Italian culture. My time in Italy was so much more meaningful thanks to our lessons. I can't recommend her highly enough! Buon divertimento!

Truckee, CA

I provide fun/customized lessons based on the student's goals. I believe that desire to learn a language is the only way that makes a student want to learn, and therefore I try to minimize English speaking during the lessons. I also give homework exercises for the students to do between lessons. Unless requested, my lessons are intermixed with grammar, conversation, customs/traditions. My goal is to make certain that each student finds Italian as exciting as I do, and wishes to continue the learning process, and become comfortable with me and the Italian language.

About Anna (Carlini)
I was born in Italy and came to the U.S. with my family. I was educated in the U.S. and returned to Italy to live and work for the U.S. Navy. There I met and married my husband. We returned to the U.S. and had two beautiful children. I have been teaching Italian in the Lake Tahoe area for nine years now, and have every intention of continuing to do so on a different platform then a standard classroom. I find that students learn faster and better when they are in their own setting and comfortable.

My goal is to make certain each student from beginner to advanced walks away knowing Italian more then when he/she started, and are happy with me and with the results.
I want to make sure that each student feels comfortable in conversing in Italian, and that he/she truly believes that learning Italian is possible.
I provide lessons fr
om beginner to advanced to all that wish to learn or improve their Italian. Each lesson is based on each student's knowledge base and the goal that they wish to achieve. Knowledge in any given subject is like gold.

Cancelling or rescheduling your class: If you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson it is possible, but I would require 24 hrs. notice prior to your scheduled lesson time.

Anna is excellent whether you are a beginner or advanced Italian speaker! She knows just how to pace the class, and always modified it so that it was perfectly fit for me. She was so patient!! I never felt uncomfortable or rushed to learn, and she always seemed to have so many different ways to teach me the language; whether it was sentence structure, verb conjugation, new work pronunciation - it didn't matter, she was so creative with so many different ways to learn it all.
