I was born and raise in Italy, moved to the US few years ago.
I have been an Italian teacher for many years.
I can teach you from the basic to an advanced level

About Simona
I was born and raised in Italy. When I moved to the States in 2005, I barely spoke English.
That's why I decided to start teaching Italian. I know how difficult it is to go to a foreign country and not be able to buy something as simple as bread.

I will send you links, we will read together, watch videos, talk to each other. No need to buy any book with me, I will send you everything.

Are you ready to learn? Because I am happy to teach you.

Our high school son was studying a semester in Italy and knew no Italian. We hired Valentina after reading the great reviews and were more than pleased. She was flexible and accommodating to a very tight schedule and our son learned a lot from her. She sprinkled in some cultural and historical lessons on Italy but primarily language. Valentina is high energy, organized and a great teacher. High marks for punctuality, personality and teaching! She even offered to help him once in Italy which we may explore if needed. Thanks Valentina! A wonderful experience.

First lesson was good, although we had some technical difficulties using Skype -- probably my fault not Valentina's -- and ended up speaking by phone. Once we get that worked out, I expect to improve my conversational Italian, with special emphasis on conjugating verbs. So wonderful to speak with someone whose first language is Italian.

About Simona S.

Conversation is in my opinion the most efficient method for remembering words long term and also the best method to learn grammar without stress. I am an Italian native speaker and through my teaching style I intend to boost your motivation to continue learning.

About Simona
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 .

Rena was very clear, organized, and receptive to my input. She was also great in using her curriculum to support my learning process. I played some instruments growing up and always wanted to try piano but didn't try until college. I initially had some unrealistic goals for myself, and Rena was able to help me set some more reasonable ones while also making sure I was enjoying what I was learning. I can't recommend Rena enough; she's amazing!

I started taking piano lessons from Rena in my late 20s with absolutely no prior piano experience and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. Rena is incredibly knowledgeable about both piano and music theory in general. She's a very patient teacher and has a knack for explaining complicated material on a level that a layperson can understand. I can't recommend Rena enough for musicians at any level looking to improve!

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. If you would like a patient, personable, knowledgeable, creative and fun-loving teacher who can quickly figure out how you learn best and what motivates you - look no further!

About Sabrina
Buon giorno, I'm Sabrina. I hold a B.A., M.A. and Doctorate in Modern Languages (in Italian and French), and specialize in language instruction. I have spent the past 20+ years working with students of all ages, as both a classroom teacher and a private tutor, 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.)

Delia is a great teacher. She has helped me understand what to expect in certain situations and how to ask for things. For example, when I go to order a drink in a special way, or when not to order certain things, etc. She is providing me with very relevant words and phrases that I will use a lot while visiting Italy. This is going to help me a lot. I'm looking forward to our next lesson!

Ciao a tutti,

Prima di tutto vorrei presentarmi. Mi chiamo Galileo e sono italiano. Sono cresciuto a Firenze e poi ho iniziato a spostarmi per motivi di studio e lavoro. Ho vissuto in Spagna, Francia, Australia, Germania e ad Agosto inizio l'MBA in US.
Le mie lezioni sono uniche per diverse ragioni.
Intanto Firenze è il luogo in cui la lingua italiana ha avuto origine e quindi chi meglio di me la può insegnare?
Le mie lezioni saranno un mix di conversazioni, grammatica e divertimento.
Dato che sono specializzato in Business, se siete interessati a un corso più

I want to focus my classes on discovering not only the language but also the culture. I would love to teach you the language while doing super fun activities such as cooking together italian dishes. I'm also a hard-worker and I want to see improvements.
My family was hosting american students who were carrying out their studying abroad program in Florence when i was younger and so I'm used to teach italian to americans. It is actually super fun also for me!!

I studied abroad in Florence, Italy for a year where I lived with a host family. I obtained a minor in Italian Studies where I took a wide range of courses related to Italian language and culture. I tutored university level students that were beginners and intermediate level students.

About Jorge
I’m a French Graduate Teaching Associate and a Portuguese Graduate Assistant at SDSU. I will obtain my MA in French spring 2020. Then, I plan to continue my studies at UC Berkley where I want to obtain a PhD in Romance Languages and Linguistics. I obtained a BA in French, a BA in Linguistics, a minor in Italian Studies and a TESL certificate from SDSD back in spring of 2018.

I have learned several languages that I would consider myself a language aficionado. I understand the time and dedication that it takes to learn a foreign language specially when you don’t get the daily exposure to the language and culture. Therefore I consider myself a patient person that wants the best for his students regardless of the language they are learning. What matters is the satisfaction of the student in obtaining their language goal.

My goal is t
o obtain my PhD and teach French, and Italian language and linguistics.

- More than 10 years of experience with Italian language and culture.
- We will discuss grammar and exercise listening skills but also practice conversations and writing.
- We will also practice with real world conversations and topics rather than only paper exercises.

About Pedro
I am an Opera Singer, currently based in the NYC area. I finished my undergrad in vocal performance at Universidad Central in Bogotá, Colombia and Master’s degree in music performance at the University of Denver.

The learning process is very different from one person to the other and this applies to languages, indeed. However, no matter what your pace is and what your goals are in a subject, my goal will always be making sure that you are learning something new every time, and of course, that you reach your goals in the process. Your process is personal and my job is to take the best from you.

Respect singing, I believe every person has a unique instrument, and no matter how easier or harder it could be for some people, anyone can develop his/her own instrument to the fullest!

I look forward to meet you and reach your singing and langu
age goals together!

About Deborah M.

Ciao! Guten Morgen! Buenos dias! Bom dia! Dobar dan!

In my lessons, we start using the target language immediately! As a lifelong language learner (I speak 7 languages!) I have found that repetition is key. Basic words and phrases need to become automatic so the student can build on them to go on to the next step.

Another thing I have noticed through observation is that most conversation, even between native speakers, is pretty basic. Most people aren't discussing nuclear physics over coffee! So my focus is on comprehension and fluency in basic situations.

I am a results-oriented teacher and I believe the best way to achieve results is to have fun! I make it easy for my students to learn and they do learn. The great thing about languages is that anybody can learn a language. Just like you learned English, you can learn another language and you can start using your skills immediately to enrich your life.

About Deborah
Hello!

I am a lifelong language learner. My early fascination with words and sounds led me to constantly seek out new ways to learn language and perfect my language skills. I moved to Italy after I graduated from college. There, I not only became bilingual in Italian and fluent in other European languages, I made friends with people all over Europe and those friendships are with me to this day.

The best part of learning a language (at least in my opinion) is being able to connect to people in a real way. Sometimes I'll be on a plane going to Europe and people will be speaking all kinds of different languages and I understand all of them. It's an amazing feeling. It's also amazing to be able to read books, or listen to music, in the original language because it really isn't the same!

I am a Joseph Campbell buff. I believe that all of l
ife is a hero's journey and the challenges we meet make us stronger and wiser. The choices we make on that journey can open doors to new journeys and learning a language can open even more doors.

I am a brown belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. My martial arts training has helped me tremendously in my teaching because it has proven to me the value of repetition and drilling in learning any subject.

Anytime you learn something, you are growing, and you are becoming able to connect with more and more people, and I feel like connection is what it's all about. At the same time, teaching has introduced me to some of my favorite people in the world and those people have helped me grow both as a teacher and as a person.

Thank you for your interest!
