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.

Giuliana is a wonderful teacher and guide for Italian language and culture. I really enjoyed our small class and she managed our different levels of experience very gracefully. We all learned a great deal over the course of a year together and we miss her immensely!

Giuliana is the most patient and encouraging teacher that I have yet encountered. She truly strives to make Italian entertaining as well as simple. Prior to my lessons with her, learning a whole new language seemed to be a daunting task, as well as the seemingly insurmountable goal of losing my native accent while speaking. Through our online lessons, she has taught me grammar and a vast vocabulary that served me very well in my trip to Italy. If there is one teacher who can truly teach the language quickly and easily, it's Giuliana.

Private Italian Teacher

As a native Italian who has lived in several Italian cities including Rome for over 30 years, I have a comprehensive understanding of the Italian language and culture. Along with my knowledge and experience as a native Italian speaker, I also have over 20 years of activity as an educator, which allows me to tailor to the needs of my students. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge and helping my students along their path of learning the Italian language.

About Andrea

Bassist and composer Andrea performs extensively within the improvised music scene, across a broad spectrum of genres. 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 is a dedicated educator. He has taught master classes at the National Institute of Music and the National University of Costa Rica, at the Boğaziçi University in Istanbul, Turkey and at the Olav Duun Videregående Skole in Namsos, Norway. He also served as an adjunct professor at New York University, where he graduated in 2011 with a Master

of Music Degree in Performance with a Concentration in Jazz as a Fulbright scholarship recipient.

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.

"I took lessons with Sabrina over several years in small group settings. She always made the meetings fun and addressed the group's individual needs. She
was always prepared with great ideas. Sabrina gave me confidence to engage in conversation in Italy on my early trips and then helped me prepare for a 2-week course at a language school in Italy. I was able to get into one of the more advanced classes, thanks in large part to Sabrina's tutoring. I was sad to move away from Sabrina's location and the opportunity for classes but am happy to see the online option."

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 …
