I have been teaching Italian for 5 years now, I have traveled to Italy numerous times spending time with Italian-only speaking families and I enjoy talking about almost anything Italian. If you are looking for lessons and you are just beginning or have been speaking for some time I would love to help you improve your knowledge of the language to become a fluent speaker.

About Christopher
Hello! Hola! Benvenuto! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, composer, polyglot, and experienced language and music teacher.

I am a recent graduate with a Doctorate of Music Arts degree from the University of South Carolina. I also graduated with my M.M. fro the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. There I studied with the world-renowned guitarist Eliot Fisk who is a direct student of the legendary guitarist Andres Segovia.

Currently, I work part-time teaching 12 students guitar at the University of South Carolina, in Columbia. I also teach ukulele, Spanish, Italian, and English to a variety of students online. I have also just completed my debut album titled, "Anima - The Music of Spain and Italy for the Guitar." This album is a tribute and memorial to an amazing journey I had traveling and living
in Europe for 3 years.

After I graduated from my undergraduate degree, I realized that in order to better my skills as a musician and become the guitar teacher I wanted to be I had to travel abroad. I moved to Seville, Spain where for three years I studied the art of classical and flamenco guitar.

I studied with an internationally known Spanish guitarist named Francisco Bernier at the Conservatory in Seville. During this time I was also teaching English as a second language to high school and middle school students. From traveling and spending so much time in Europe, I also developed and studied my love of languages and I became fluent in Spanish and Italian.

The experienced was an experience of a lifetime and I made many friends working and living abroad that to this day, I still keep in contact with.

If you are interested in having lessons with me, please contact me and we can begin learning the art of making beautiful music or learning the beautiful languages of the Mediterranean! "Hasta pronto!" "A presto!" and "Speak to you soon!"

About Stefania P.

Close
Chicago, IL
View Full Profile

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 am fully Italian and grew up here in Miami so I speak English and Spanish fluently as well. I can give lessons from English and from Spanish to Italian.

About Luisa
Hi! I am a singer/songwriter and actress.

I am graduating from Berklee College of Music, after studying at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami for 3 years (I majored in Music Business with a minor in song writing).

I just moved back to Miami from living in Los Angeles for 2 years to write and record my EP. During my time in LA, I also furthered my training in acting for film and songwriting. I also shadowed videographers in LA and learned how to film and edit videos, which is why I opened a vlog channel to support my music.

I have been performing ever since I was a child. Some of my most important performances include: performing duets with Phil Collins both in Miami and in Switzerland, singing the National Anthem at the Heat Quarterfinals in 2013, being on THE VOICE in Italy, performing my original songs at a Phil C
ollins foundation in Paris, being the opening act for the United Nation's International Year of Youth in New York City, and performing the National Anthem at the Miami Open.

I speak and sing in 3 languages - English, Spanish, and Italian. I am originally from Rome, Italy.

I am completely aware of all musical genres, and especially what is current at the moment. I encourage students to bring in whatever music they feel is best for them and also challenging. Being a songwriter, I persuade students to bring in their own songs (if they write) so that we can work on the songs and most importantly, performing them. My main goal is that students become great performers, while primarily having mastered their technique for their vocal health and longevity.

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.

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.

Gali is an incredible tutor! He is the most patient tutor I have had. He explains things thoroughly and has a serious knack for being able to make things easily understandable! I always struggled learning Italian in class, but he found a way to make it all make sense for me and now I am so much better at it than I ever could have been without his help!

I studied abroad in Florence, Italy for a year where I lived with a host family. I obtained a minor in Italian Studies where I took a wide range of courses related to Italian language and culture. I tutored university level students that were beginners and intermediate level students.

About Jorge
I’m a French Graduate Teaching Associate and a Portuguese Graduate Assistant at SDSU. I will obtain my MA in French spring 2020. Then, I plan to continue my studies at UC Berkley where I want to obtain a PhD in Romance Languages and Linguistics. I obtained a BA in French, a BA in Linguistics, a minor in Italian Studies and a TESL certificate from SDSD back in spring of 2018.

I have learned several languages that I would consider myself a language aficionado. I understand the time and dedication that it takes to learn a foreign language specially when you don’t get the daily exposure to the language and culture. Therefore I consider myself a patient person that wants the best for his students regardless of the language they are learning. What matters is the satisfaction of the student in obtaining their language goal.

My goal is t
o obtain my PhD and teach French, and Italian language and linguistics.
