Lesson Details

Italian

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
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.

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!

I taught Italian and had I was very impressed by the student's results. I believe I teach in a more efficient way by letting having conversations about topics that interest my students rather than learn grammar and syntax, which is still very important. But for a beginner learner, I think that boosting the confidence by teaching every day sentences and words ends up being more engaging and with better results.

The best thing about Cecilia is her enthusiasm! When you have a teacher who is warm, happy, and excited to teach it certainly makes it easier to learn! You can tell she loves kids. Highly recommend.

We love Cecilia! Teaches with such passion! She was always able to find everyday uses to teach her lessons, for example counting money. Such a keeper!

Grazie, Cecilia! For years I've wanted to learn Italian, and learning from a real Italian was not only educational, but genuinely fun as well!

Cecelia has advanced knowledge of multiple languages, which gives her such advantage as a teacher. She is very relaxed and flexible with regards to when we talked about getting together for leasons. I highly recommend her!

Cecilia is a fantastic Italian teacher. She is easy to talk to, patient with her students and is fabulous at really making sure her students GET the language (proper pronunciation included) instead of just teaching from a text book. We love Cecilia!

Three kids with various interests, I was so excited to come across Mrs. McCormack's Italian class. Her flexibility with my daughter's schedule and excitement in teaching Italian was exactly what we needed. You are amazing.

I have always been interested in taking Italian. With a busy life, it's been hard to get anywhere for lessons. I came across Cecilia's profile and decided to give it a try. It was such an amazing fit! She is an incredible instructor and we were such a good fit. I am so thankful for her and am impressed by how quickly my Italian has progressed in such a short amount of time. She is the best!
