Experience

Italian Language Teacher/Private tutor
Sep 2002 - Present
Self-Employed

I have been teaching Italian to students in elementary, secondary, middle, and high school. I have also instructed college level students as well as adults and even couples! I have been endorsed by my previous high school and colleges for my Italian language skills. I am American, my parents are of Italian Native descent and I speak fluent Italian. I studied in Italian language in college in Florence Italy, and am certified by "Istituto Europeo" & "Universita Popolare" as well as SUNY Rockland College in Italian language as well as Opera Singing & Bel Canto. I am excellent with children and have study style skills and techniques to engage them & make studying Italian language fun & interesting for students who feel that it is boring and have difficulty finding interest with the subject; I have had huge successes! I am so proud of my students; I have been doing this for 13 years. I also have been doing professional child care as well as teaching music/theater for the past 14 years so I am fantastic at engaging children and know how to making it a fun and thrilling experience for them & stimulates their mind. I have helped over 40 students pass their Italian regents/finals/midterm exams. I have rescues students failing of a %50 average up to %90 in just 2 months. My students have an overall average percentage achieving rate of %95 or higher after working with me once or twice a week. I guarantee results; I have much experience and Italian is fun to speak, and learn! I truly look forward to working with you/your child. Arrivederci & buona fortuna!
Sinceramente,
Maria Angela
