Ciao amici! I'm Rita! I'm 29, and was born and raised in Catania, Italy. I studied food science in Italy until 4 years ago, after that I moved in America and started a new path as a dental hygienist. In the meantime I teach yoga, Pilates and my beautiful language, Italian. As a real Sicilian I have a big passion for food and I would love to do some cooking class soon. I love to help students reach their goals; with a little bit of patience and passion I believe everyone has the potential to succeed. Can't wait to meet you!

About Rita B.

Hi, I am Rita and I am from Sicily, Italy. I moved to America 4 years ago and can now, at 29, finally say that I know enough English to allow me to have a smooth conversation with you. When I landed in US I did not know this platform existed, otherwise it would have been faster and easier to immerse myself in a different society and culture.

My passion for sharing and teaching started when I was younger through dance, yoga, Pilates and cooking classes; however, today I am here to help you learn this beautiful and romantic language. I truly believe that each of us has something to teach and something to learn from one another.
Looking forward to seeing you :) a presto!
