Ciao, my name is Ivonne and I am an Italian native from Bologna, Italy. My mom and relatives are all in Italy, and most of my local friends are Italians. I travel to Italy once a year but speak and write Italian on a daily basis, for business and pleasure.I moved to Florida in 1993 to advance my career and I am a member of the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce in Miami. I am an animal lover and adore classical music. Please note that I do not have any dialect inflection and speak a "pure and classical" Italian, which is a very important aspect to be aware of when choosing a tutor. For over 25 years, both in Italy and in the US, I taught Italian to foreign children, students, business executives and just regular individuals who wanted to take a trip to Italy or just loved Italian history and culture.I believe learning another language should be fun and uncomplicated. Regardless from the level of proficiency you aim to achieve, what is your current level of understanding and the purpose of your study (business, school, leisure, travel, pen pal correspondence, etc., etc.) I strive to deliver the best results. My approach varies depending on your needs and learning style: i.e. I may use books to develop a solid foundation in Italian grammar, read Italian newspapers, watch Italian TV channel, and most important speak Italian to you as much as possible, in person and on the phone, perfecting pronunciation and fluency.
I am eager to meet you and provide you with the best possible learning experience. Ciao e Arrivederci a presto!
