About Simona G.

I am an Italian and Latin teacher, born and raised in Italy. I am eligible to teach Italian (Grades K-12). I graduated ( Master degree) at University of Rome “La Sapienza" in Italian Language and Literature and soon I started to teach Italian and Latin in several Italian high schools as tenure teacher for 15 years. I moved to USA some years ago and I have since been working on translation of documents, private lessons, corporate foreign language classes , Italian articles for an American-Italian issue and I also published some books in Italian. My passion is studying and teaching not only the language but also the Italian culture and history. My lessons will be focused on learning how to speak Italian in everyday life with an eye on grammar, phonetics and culture and will never lack enthusiasm and cheerfulness genuinely… made in Italy!

I had my first lesson with Simona tonite and she was great. I like the way she writes her lesson plans. Very clear and concise. She is nice and friendly. She made me feel very comfortable.

Simona is always cheerful and affable and it's a pleasure to take classes with her. She adds information about local Italian usage and nuance that you won't find in most texts, and is especially good at tailoring the lessons to your skill level and interests.
