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!

About Nicole
Nicole is available to teach lessons for students of all levels. Beginning her singing career when she was 7, she most recently sang at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, was a winner of the international CS Competition in musical theatre, and is a Chicago F.A.M.E. finalist for Jazz and popular music. Combined with her training and professional experience, Nicole teaches singers to switch gracefully between multiple styles.

Nicole has been a young artist for Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Metropolitan International Music Festival, and for Tiroler Opern Programm, under international instructors, including Elizabeth Bachman (from the Metropolitan Opera), Kim Josephson (Metropolitan Opera), Sharon Cheng (Caramoor),

I have been a teacher for more than 20 years, teaching various subjects to students of all ages. I studied Italian first in high school; then throughout my college years. I've become proficient in it and I now tutor students in NYC public schools (primarily high school) that struggle with the language. I am patient, thorough and I try to make it fun and interesting for the students who often come to me quite frustrated initially.

About Anne-Marie
Hi, I'm Anne-Marie and I love to teach! I have been teaching for over 25 years and whether the subject is English, Music, College Prep or Italian, I love helping students reach their goals. I work hard to leave my students enlightened, encouraged and empowered. I have high standards and I really like to challenge students to achieve their full potential, but I also try to make the process interesting, engaging and fun. I'm patient, easygoing and I enjoy working with students of all ages and backgrounds. I always strive to get to know my students (and their needs) very well. Then I customize lessons according to need, aptitude and goals. One of the best parts of teaching for me is meeting and connecting with new people, and making a difference in their lives, so I really look forward to meeting and working with you!

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 .

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.

As a current faculty member of the New York Jazz Workshop, Andrea is a dedicated educator.

About mirella V.

Baltimore, MD
View Full Profile

Hi! My name is Mirella. I am a certified teacher both in Italy (where I come from) and in the US (where I currently live). I have over 15 years of experience teaching a highly diverse student population.
My classes are conducted in Italian with some English (used mostly in the beginning as a support). I train students to conceptualize in Italian rather than translate or substitute words: as students learn, for example, "Buon giorno. Come stai?" at their first lesson, there is no longer a need to translate it as "Good morning. How are you?" With this approach, vocabulary enrichment grows throughout the course. I strongly emphasize conversation (with a continued focus on pronunciation and inflection) and cultural knowledge over grammar and syntactical studies.

About mirella
Hi there!
My name is Mirella, I am Italian and live in Baltimore, MD. I am an excellent teacher of Conversational Italian, I have many students whom I teach in school and privately, in person and on-line.
I am fun, understanding and flexible, and more than anything else, I 'll guide you along your language journey with inspiration and knowledge, letting you set the general direction, but never letting go of the wheel myself.
As I spend time getting to know your strengths and weaknesses, I can optimize the time in class and outside of class. I will praise every little effort that you make, and I'll drill you on things I know you struggle with.
I am currently available for on-line and in person lessons. Please feel free to review my information (about my education – I am a PhD graduate -, my accreditations – I am a licensed teacher –
or my certifications – I am ACTFL certified -) on my profile and contact me if you have any questions or need additional information.
I am looking forward to knowing more about you.
Ciao, Mirella

Mirella is an amazing language instructor. I had studied Italian for a few years many years ago and was very nervous to start again, but I needed to show intermediate Italian abilities for my work. Mirella's warm personality and student-centered teaching style really put me at ease and unlocked my hidden intuitive foreign language energies and abilities. For Mirella, language is all about communication, and the realization under Mirella's guidance that we all know how to communicate--even if only roughly at first in a new language--greatly diminished my anxiety and self-consciousness at making inevitable mistakes. I looked forward to Mirella's lessons as a highlight of my week, with tremendous results!
