Ciao!

I have always been very passionate about languages and learning, and I love sharing what I know with others. I am a native speaker of Italian with degree in linguistics earned in Italy. I will soon continue to enrich my academic knowledge by attending CSUN. Over the years, I have often accepted the challenge of helping others learn Italian or improve their basic knowledge of the language, whether for academic purposes or for travel and business reasons; I am very proud to say that my dedication and learning strategies, together with the student's effort and eagerness, have produced great results every time.

My lessons vary, depending on the student's ultimate goal. For future travelers, the lesson is more focused on pronunciation and dialogue, on basic grammatical concepts, such as the structure of the sentence, vocabulary memorization and idiomatic expressions to help a person get around.
For a student of the subject, lessons are designed in accordance with the current lesson and person's proficiency. Generally, these lessons include grammar exercises, vocabulary memorization, some dialogue and pronunciation exercises, possible homework review and correction and potential pop-up quizzes. Occasionally, I like to show the student some videos and literature in original language for review and discussion.

I consider myself very professional and dedicated to my craft. I strive to provide the best quality of teaching, while being personable and understanding of a student's needs and challenges. My ultimate goal is to spread my love for languages, particularly Italian. It is very important for me to know that the student is satisfied before billing for the tutoring session.

I am very happy to travel for lessons and I am currently setting up my own small studio in my home.
I am very excited to begin this journey with you!
Ciao!
