I received my Bachelor's degree in Italian Language and Literature with a 4.0 GPA and graduated Summa Cum Laude. During my studies I lived in Italy with an Italian-speaking host family. I have over five years of experience teaching Italian to children and adults both privately and at an international language school. Italian is my favorite subject to tutor!

About Jessica
ACADEMIC BACKGROUND:
I graduated with my Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology with Highest Honors at Queens College, which only accepts four percent of applicants. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Pittsburgh Honors College on a Full Tuition Honors College Scholarship with a double major in French and Italian Language and Literature. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA. Last year, I scored above the 93rd percentile on my GRE Verbal and Writing sections. In high school, I scored above the 98th percentile on the SAT/ACT Verbal sections. I graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA from all AP and honors classes.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
I am a speech-language pathologist with experience teaching children and adults various areas of language. Additionally, I have been tutoring a range of other subjects for over f
ive years. I have worked at the international Berlitz Language School, where I have taught English, French and Italian to children and adults of all levels and all language backgrounds. I also have years of experience teaching SAT classes at test prep companies in New York.

TEACHING APPROACH:
I tailor my lessons to each student I teach and to his or her individual learning styles. I am friendly, patient and not intimidating: three qualities that I personally find important in a tutor. I truly love teaching and meeting new students. I find that I always learn from my students when I teach as well! During our first lesson together, we can discuss your goals and create an academic plan personalized to your needs. I look forward to working with you!

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

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!

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

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.

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 specially requested by the students, my lessons are 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.

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.

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.
