Speak beautiful, authentic Italian, and enjoy every moment of the learning process! I enjoy helping and inspiring students of all ages. As both a certified teacher and private tutor, I offer highly individualized, fun and engaging lessons to meet your personal goals, interests and learning styles. I use a variety of materials, including conversational dialogues, practical role-plays, music, videos, cartoons, and more. I hold a B.A., M.A. and Doctorate in Modern Languages and specialize in language instruction. We always infuse culture into each language lesson, and you will see I cater to your specific interests or future travel plans. I have been told my passion for Italian language and culture is contagious. I am patient, personable, knowledgeable, creative and fun-loving, and above all l will quickly figure out how you learn best and what motivates you. Thanks for reading!
About Sabrina I.

Buon giorno! I'm Sabrina. I specialize in language instruction (Italian and French) and have spent the past 15+ years working with students of all ages, as both a classroom teacher and a private tutor. I hold a Doctorate in Modern Languages, and offer highly individualized and engaging lessons to meet your personal goals, interests and above all, learning styles. I provide extensive feedback and encouraging guidance to help students continue to succeed independently. I love sharing my knowledge of and passion for the Italian language and culture with others. I infuse a variety of cultural topics into each language lesson, depending on your personal interests and/or travel plans. You will certainly find my passion contagious! But I realize learning a language isn't easy for everyone, and it can be quite intimidating to feel confident while speaking. That's why you need a teacher who can figure out what works for you, how you learn, and what motivates you. Everyone can speak beautiful Italian, and engage in conversations for business or pleasure, but it takes a knowledgeable instructor to help get you there efficiently. I can quickly assess and pinpoint your strengths to design activities that help you precisely where and how you need it, and have plenty of effective tricks up my sleeve. I lived and worked in Italy for about 10 years, in educational tourism, and since moving back to the US I have taught Italian at both the High School and University/College levels for about 4 years each, as well as Community and Continuing Adult Education classes for the past 6 years, and I have training in AP exam prep. Although I have native-fluency, I have myself been a student of foreign languages, and know the struggles that come along with this exciting adventure. I know how to help you get past those hurdles, and have fun along the way. To learn more about me, my lessons, or to ask me any questions, do not hesitate to send me a message and I will respond within a few hours. I look forward to hearing from you. A presto! (Talk to you soon.)

Sabrina is patient with trying to understand your abilities and is able to work with you. This is important in a teacher as she is really teaching you as an individual and not just using a standardize format.

Sabrina is a delightful instructor. She’s an experienced teacher and her fluency is impeccable. Her knowledge of the language and teaching ability are excellent. Lessons with Sabrina are fun, informative and perfectly tailored to your language level, goals and learning style. I highly recommend her for your Italian lessons!

Sabrina is wonderful. She's exactly what I hoped to find in my teacher. I speak some Italian, but I have gaps in my understanding correct usage of pronouns and several basic verbs. Our conversations bring those gaps out, and we work on correcting them. Sabrina is Patient, funny, calm, and professional. She manages to make me feel good about where I am, how far I have come, and where I am going with this beautiful language. Bravissima!

What a fabulous platform to use for language teaching! I am delighted to find that I can still keep my students engaged and having fun while they learn TONS of Italian online during these crazy times of only distance learning.

I love teaching these students (age 6-10 years). It’s such a different approach than teaching high school, university, or Communiry Education, and has helped my lessons be even more playful and creative!
