Practice makes perfect! My teaching style is based on language living rather than language studying, and while I will provide you with all of the tools to apply the correct grammar rules I encourage you to make mistakes, and learn naturally by being exposed to the language. I am 100% Italian native speaker, and I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge of the Italian language and culture with you .

Simona is 'fantabulous', she is informative, linguistically knowledgeable, possess clear understanding of English grammar; which is an all but dead discipline, applies it to Italian, and for the interested and eager student makes learning that much more rapid and enjoyable. I had a mere fractional knowledge of Italian before I started with Simona, I know in a reasonable amount of time with application and study I will reach my goal of being conversant and comfortable in Italian. I look forward to many many lessons with Ms. Strianese as she imparts language understanding, usage and both formal and familiar Italian communication.

Excellent. It is just what I need. Lots of grammar, lots of conversation, not too rigid (we fluidly move through different subjects). Good sharing of resources to help me learn and study further. Excellent! Grazie.

Its only been one lesson, but it was terrific. Simona does a great job reviewing the key information, repeating it to help me understand, sending notes from our lesson that I can look back on, and finally sending training materials that I can review in advance of the next session.
Thank you Simona, I look forward to our future lessons !
