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!"

My 8 year daughter is taking one-on-one French lessons with Ms Aliaksandra. She has taken 3 lessons so far and loving it. I was invited to observe her last lesson and I am absolutely impressed with Ms Aliaksandra’s teaching. She speaks only French during the lesson, exposing my daughter to the language. She started with everyday things but is also using them in simple sentences. My daughter loves her lessons and can’t wait for the next one. She practice at home as well so she can make her teacher! We are glad to have found Ms Aliaksandra.

About Simona S.

Conversation is in my opinion the most efficient method for remembering words long term and also the best method to learn grammar without stress. I am an Italian native speaker and through my teaching style I intend to boost your motivation to continue learning.

About Simona
Practice makes perfect! My teaching style is based on language living rather than language studying, and while I will provide you with all of the tools to apply the correct grammar rules I encourage you to make mistakes, and learn naturally by being exposed to the language. I am 100% Italian native speaker, and I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge of the Italian language and culture with you .

Rena was very clear, organized, and receptive to my input. She was also great in using her curriculum to support my learning process. I played some instruments growing up and always wanted to try piano but didn't try until college. I initially had some unrealistic goals for myself, and Rena was able to help me set some more reasonable ones while also making sure I was enjoying what I was learning. I can't recommend Rena enough; she's amazing!

I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different things.

Speak beautiful, authentic Italian, and enjoy every moment of the learning process! I enjoy helping and inspiring students of all ages. As both a certified teacher and private tutor, I offer highly individualized, fun and engaging lessons to meet your personal goals, interests and learning styles. I use a variety of materials, including conversational dialogues, practical role-plays, music, videos, cartoons, and more. I hold a B.A., M.A. and Doctorate in Modern Languages and specialize in language instruction. We always infuse culture into each language lesson, and you will see I cater to your specific interests or future travel plans. I have been told my passion for Italian language and culture is contagious. I am patient, personable, knowledgeable, creative and fun-loving, and above all l will quickly figure out how you learn best and what motivates you. Thanks for reading!

About Sabrina
Buon giorno! I'm Sabrina. I specialize in language instruction (Italian and French) and have spent the past 15+ years working with students of all ages, as both a classroom teacher and a private tutor.
I hold a Doctorate in Modern Languages, and offer highly individualized and engaging lessons to meet your personal goals, interests and above all, learning styles. I provide extensive feedback and encouraging guidance to help students continue to succeed independently.

I love sharing my knowledge of and passion for the Italian language and culture with others. I infuse a variety of cultural topics into each language lesson, depending on your personal interests and/or travel plans. You will certainly find my passion contagious! But I realize learning a language isn't easy for everyone, and it can be quite intimidating to feel confident w
hile speaking. That's why you need a teacher who can figure out what works for you, how you learn, and what motivates you. Everyone can speak beautiful Italian, and engage in conversations for business or pleasure, but it takes a knowledgeable instructor to help get you there efficiently. I can quickly assess and pinpoint your strengths to design activities that help you precisely where and how you need it, and have plenty of effective tricks up my sleeve.

I lived and worked in Italy for about 10 years, in educational tourism, and since moving back to the US I have taught Italian at both the High School and University/College levels for about 4 years each, as well as Community and Continuing Adult Education classes for the past 6 years, and I have training in AP exam prep. Although I have native-fluency, I have myself been a student of foreign languages, and know the struggles that come along with this exciting adventure. I know how to help you get past those hurdles, and have fun along the way.

To learn more about me, my lessons, or to ask me any questions, do not hesitate to send me a message and I will respond within a few hours. I look forward to hearing from you. A presto! (Talk to you soon.)

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 :)

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.
