Ciao a tutti! Hello everyone! My name is Cindy and I'm Italian. I've been teaching Italian in schools and privately for many years now...I was raised in Rome where I have lived and worked for most of my life.

Do you want to learn Italian in a natural way, outside the bounds of a traditional language school? Studying a foreign language is an absorbing, complex experience.

It involves not only mastering new words, but also gaining a deeper understanding of the culture in which the language is rooted. To achieve this goal I devote all my enthusiasm, my skill at communication, and a sense of humor which makes for a relaxed study environment.

About Cynthia V.

Are you going on holiday to Italy? Would you like to learn the language? Do you think it is too hard to learn a language as an adult? Do you think you won't have time to study? There are many ways to learn a language. It doesn't have to be all that complicated or hard. Everyone has a personal way to learn things and I will be able to tune into your preferred way and create customized lessons that will make it easy for you to learn the content you like at your own pace.

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
L’insegnante mediocre dice. Il buon insegnante spiega. L’insegnante superiore dimostra. Il grande insegnate ispira"
(William Arthur Ward)

Cindy is such a wonderful teacher. I have tried several times over the years to learn Italian, and have had 4 different teachers. Cindy is the best by far. She lays things out in a clear manner and is always open for questions in class and via email. Grazie Cindy!

I have known and worked with Cindy for well over a year to sharpen/maintain speaking skills and to improve my writing. Prior to Covid, we met weekly in a bookstore cafe and during 2020 we have continued via Zoom. As I have been a student of Italian for quite some time, we simply jumped in at an advanced level. Her everyday awareness of spoken Italian is a perfect way to achieve my goals. We have kept the meetings informal and conversational, with homework that varies from text book segments to writing letters to just having conversations about everyday things. I know Cindy also provides a more structured set of lessons and has worked with students of all ages. The best "testimonial" I can give is that I plan to continue to work with Cindy. Any questions, feel free to send me an e-mail.

Cynthia is truly a great teacher. She understands what it is that i want to achieve from my lessons and then helps me achieve it. Great balance of conversation, learning new words/phrases and grammar. I highly recommend her.

I was so impressed with Cynthia's teaching style in my first lesson and her keen ability to pace the lessons with what I know and need to know. I am very much looking forward to our future lessons and know that with her teaching, I can reach my goal to speak Italian.
