My mission is to help everyone, from beginner to expert, feel comfortable engaging in Italian conversations and believing that learning a second language is not only necessary but possible!

I provide lessons to people of all ages determined to learn or improve Italian. Each lesson is customized based on the specific needs of each student and the goals they are ready to achieve.

Beyond U

Starting a non-profit to bring international education and cultural appreciation to every student in the world.
Being an exchange student myself simply changed my life. Not only did my American Dream come true, but it gave me a new dream that is much bigger than myself: changing other people’s lives and making their dreams come true.

Beyond U is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational exchange organization designed to help students study or work abroad for a semester or full academic year. Beyond U has a network of host families all around the world whose main purpose is to ensure that students have an incredible experience that will impact their lives far beyond the program. At Beyond U we believe that building relationships is the cornerstone to cultural awareness and appreciation as well as to becoming well rounded citizens of the world.

· Italian · Online If you are in need of an instructor in Italian I recommend you look no further. You will not be disappointed in the quality and expertise of her instruction. Karen is well prepared, organized, and structured. She has a genuine love for the Italian language which makes her lessons and learning experience fun. She has an effective teaching approach which maximizes your understanding and skill at speaking Italian. Karen lays out what you will learn in your lesson for the day and sticks to the plan. Her post lesson follow-up is exceptional and a valuable aid to learning. Karen has a tremendous and kind personality and is patient with her students. As an added plus, Karen is a native Italian which serves to add a quality and realism to her lessons. I would highly recommend Karen as a Italian language instructor.
