I am a native Italian speaker who has been teaching and tutoring for several years.

I love to teach and to guide my students on a journey that is not only about grammar, language, but also a cultural and idiomatic one.

Join me in this learning adventure of my language and country.

About ENRICO
I am a native Italian speaker with a several years of experience in teaching Italian and English. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.

I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Verona, Italy. I was tutoring English, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching English while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to Los Angeles. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime I tutored Italian to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and Italian subjects.

I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker,
I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities. However, it is important to consider other points like grammar, reading, writing. I also think that no matter what a teacher should always take into account the needs of the students and subsequently I plan my classes reflecting on the student's demands.

As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting. Of course, there are some exceptions. For instance, in the past I taught for a while TOEFL and for that type of classes I used more traditionalist and academic methods and materials.

*** Lesson Details ***
Customized lessons to the students' needs and goals.

*** Specialties ***
- T.E.F.L. Certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign Language

- Italian Native Speaker with a several year experience in teaching Italian

One of my greatest passion is to cook. I was extremely lucky to be taught and introduced to the art of cooking by my grandmother. She was born at the beginning of the previous century and she lived in different cities so she got accustomed to different traditions and shared them with me. I love to cook for smaller groups, using traditional Italian ingredients to prepare simple, but exquisite dishes that belong to the tradition of my native country. If you want to experience some real Italian food, you are definitely in the right hands. Just sit back, relax sip a glass of Italian wine while I cook for you and I share my art.

From the get go I knew I had found the perfect teacher,
Enrico is a motivating teacher.
He challenges you to learn what you need by reading and discussing interesting materials he sends .it isn't just not doing verbs exercises and tenses but actually participating in actual situations as if you were in Italy .
Enrico quickly helps you get over the nervousness that students experience when reading out loud and discussing the meaning of words in sentences and their uses.

Giulio is one of the best language teachers I have ever had. I have studied French, Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. Giulio does an excellent job at referencing what I know and moving me forward quickly, but not so quickly that I get lost or miss anything important.

I knew a bit of french going in and needed to practice listening skills and conversation. It was a lot of work, I have far to go in being comfortably conversational, but this was the jumpstart I needed to know what I needed to do going forward. Thanks Daniel!

After my first lesson I already feel more confident that I will be able to communicate some in Italian while on vacation in Italy. Daniel is an excellent teacher who is very knowledgeable in many languages. He made me feel comfortable right away.
He has a plethora of experiences from living and working abroad. He brought simple techniques/strategies that helped me understand grammar and pronunciation.
I have homework, can't wait for my next lesson. Ciao

Hello!
I am Italian and since January I am living in Texas. My goal is to help whoever needs support to learn Italian.

As a teacher I have always taught art and theatre to elementary kids.
Here in Texas I would like to bring my knowledge of Italian focusing on the structure of the language itself and on the slang.

As homework I will recommend Italian movies to watch, Italian music to listen to and books to read, depending on the student's level.

About Veronica
Hello!
I am Italian and since January 2016 I am living in Texas. My goal is to help whoever needs support to learn Italian.

As a teacher I have always taught art and theatre to elementary kids.
Here in Texas I would like to bring my knowledge of Italian focusing on the structure of the language itself and on the slang, in order to be ready to face a real Italian environment.

I speak Italian, English, Spanish and I am now learning French.
I truly believe in the power of a language and in its most "informal" way to be spoken, therefore conversations are going to be a big part of our sessions.

As homework I will recommend Italian movies to watch, Italian music to listen to and books to read, depending on the student's level.

I can travel to students or meet them online.

Feel free to contact me to get more details!
I lo
ok forward to hearing from you and helping you to get into the Italian world!

I was born and raised in Italy, where I lived most of my life. I've met my now husband while he was stationed in Italy and then moved to the United States. I like to teach Italian to anyone who shows interest. I am not your typical teacher, and what I LOVE to do is talk... talk, talk, talk, and talk. I can teach you how to go to the grocery store, to the restaurant and how to have easy conversations with locals. My latest student was very pleased with my teaching after she went to Italy on vacation and was able to understand and communicate at hotels, restaurants, museums, etc.

About Cecilia
I love to teach my native language. A little grammar and a whole lot of talking! Let's learn a new language in a fun way. We read and we talk, talk, and talk some more!
