Have you always wanted to learn or improve your Italian?
I am an Italian teacher with more than 20 years experience. I am certified (Professional Educator Licensure), for grades 6-12. Most of my experience has been teaching high school students, as well as adults.
My preparedness and fluency in Italian and Italy's culture was attained through eight years of living and working in Italy, and frequent travel. It's quite obvious to those who know me that I live and breathe all things Italian.
I have also done translation work for private companies and have self-published my first eBook, a collection of poems written in Italian and translated into English.
The feedback I receive from students of all levels and abilities has been overwhelmingly positive:
"Jeanette moves forward with useful lessons--not the humdrum textbook exercises that consist of dialogues that one would never need to use, or lists of conjugated verbs and vocabulary words to be memorized in a dry manner. Her methods are creative and interesting, as she incorporates new vocabulary words with stories about the Italian culture and provides the kind of useful written and oral exercises that reflect contemporary usage. She is conscientious and perceptive, gearing the lessons and exercises to remedy any situation. Her enthusiasm is catchy and her goal is to help the student succeed."
I look forward to working with you nella bella lingua.
