San Diego, CA

I was born and raise in Italy, moved to the US few years ago.
I have been an Italian teacher for many years.
I can teach you from the basic to an advanced level

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.

About Stefania P.

Chicago, IL

I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

About Stefania
I am Italian. I moved to Canada first and the US next in my thirties. I love teaching. I own a retail training and consulting company. I have taught Italian on and off over the years and have always loved doing it. I am very passionate about the topics I teach and have a clear understanding of the complexities of learning and most importantly remembering things that are new to us. Hence, my obsession with repetition and never move to the next lesson until prior ones are fully mastered. I use multiple tricks to make a lesson engaging, different and fun to attend.

My hourly fee accounts for the fact that I am available to give in person lessons (more effective than online), can accommodate a student's busy schedule and my hourly rate can be for one or more students at a time. So, if you have family of friends who can come with you which
would allow you to share in the cost, my fee does change and neither does the quality of my lesson.

Stefania was a great teacher, full of energy and encouragement. She customized the lesson plan for our needs (traveling to Italy, and wanting a crash course in conversational Italian). She made the learning fun, and even made the grammar piece (the hardest part of Italian) go quick! I feel motivated to study for our next lesson, and look forward to it.

I'm a first-generation Italian American from Brooklyn, NY. Growing up we would always have Sunday lunch at my Nonna's house and I took every opportunity I could to learn more about my family's culture and language. I'm passionate about Italian, and whether you are learning to prepare for an upcoming trip, for a specific event, or just for fun, I am here to help you reach your goals.

About Maria
I teach cellists of all ages and abilities and tailor the lesson to the individual. Lessons include standard repertoire, and if requested, non-traditional styles as well. I have experience with solo repertoire, orchestra, chamber music, and folk music, and can help you develop your ear and even sing while playing. I have Suzuki certification and also focus on postural alignment (I have a Pilates teaching certification). I have traveled and performed extensively throughout North America, Europe, and Australia, and can help you perform well, have great stage presence, and deal with nerves and stage fright.

Ciao a tutti,

Prima di tutto vorrei presentarmi. Mi chiamo Galileo e sono italiano. Sono cresciuto a Firenze e poi ho iniziato a spostarmi per motivi di studio e lavoro. Ho vissuto in Spagna, Francia, Australia, Germania e ad Agosto inizio l'MBA in US.
Le mie lezioni sono uniche per diverse ragioni.
Intanto Firenze è il luogo in cui la lingua italiana ha avuto origine e quindi chi meglio di me la può insegnare?
Le mie lezioni saranno un mix di conversazioni, grammatica e divertimento.
Dato che sono specializzato in Business, se siete interessati a un corso più
Quando ero piccolo la mia famiglia era una "hosting family" degli studenti americani che decidevano di passare lo "studying abroad" a Firenze. Quindi ho già avuto modo di aiutarli con la lingua e so quale è il miglior approccio con studenti anglossassoni.
Spero di avervi convinto a fare una prova con me e non ve ne pentirete :)

About Gali
Ciao :)
I am working in Business and I already graduated from my Bachelor and I'm currently doing my MBA here in the States. I'm Italian and I would love to teach my language abroad since I love to be an italian ambassador abroad.
I have done this second job since I started moving around for study and work.
I want to focus my classes on discovering not only the language but also the culture. I would love to teach you the language while doing super fun activities such as cooking together italian dishes. I'm also a hard-worker and I want to see improvements.
My family was hosting american students who were carrying out their studying abroad program in Florence when i was younger and so I'm used to teach italian to americans. It is actually super fun also for me!!
I teach to students of all different ages and experience levels.

Want to learn how to speak Italian as fast as possible? I believe the best way to learn is to immerse yourself in Italian language and culture. During my lessons, you will do just that! I will help you to become confident in your Italian language skills while tailoring lessons so that you learn the vocabulary and grammar that best fits your purpose of learning Italian. My goal for every class is for you to have fun while you better your ability to speak, read, write, and understand Italian. Let's get started!

About Allegra
Hello! My name is Allegra. I am an American native with strong Italian roots. I was born and raised in metro Detroit where I learned how to speak Italian from my family. I attended Michigan State University where I furthered my Italian language comprehension and grammar skills with a minor in Italian. I have been to Italy various times throughout my life, including a study abroad trip during my second year of college, where I studied Italian language and culture in Florence.

During my time at Michigan State, I tutored many students in Italian language, was an active member of the MSU Italian club, and won the award for Outstanding Student in Italian. Upon graduating, I was inducted into Gamma Kappa Alpha-- the national Italian honor society.

As a student who also went through the process of learning Italian as a second language, I am
able to share various teaching styles that helped me to learn Italian over the years. I believe that there is no one right way to learn a language and I would love to help you learn Italian in the way that is the most fun and effective for you.
