I lived in Italy for 6 years, and I have also completed my B.A. Italian and received an Advanced-Mid rating on my Oral Proficiency Test in Italian.

Since 2006 I have been teaching Conversational Italian at my own school, Mondo Italia Scuola e Centro Culturale. I have also been teaching Conversational Italian for eleven years at the Monmouth-Ocean Educational Services Commission and SCAN Learning Center on a contractual basis.

I have been teaching students ranging from three years of age to senior citizens in private and group settings. I have had success tutoring High School students as well, helping those who are literally failing after mid-terms and their grade has raised to a 'B-' in less than 2 semesters.

My experience with private lessons and in the classroom is extensive, often teaching students of different abilities. I frequently modify classroom activities in order to maintain the interest of the higher level students without intimidating those who are less proficient. I am an enthusiastic and energetic teacher, and I take great pride in the success of my students.

I have many students who recommend me, one who has his doctorate in Education and teaches Education classes at Seton Hall University. I have taught him and his wife in large classrooms, in private sessions, and have also taught their daughters at 3 and 5 years old.

I am dedicated to my students having success in conversing in the Italian language with Italians, not focusing on rote memory through books, although I do use books, audio, and interactive conversation in addition to written exercises. Taking a foreign language CAN be fun, and you will realize that immediately in a class, or private session, with me!

Great tutor - highly recommended — My high school daughter had a great experience being tutored in Italian by Holly this summer. She was very flexible about scheduling sessions. Holly was easy to communicate with and was very responsive, answering questions via email in-between tutoring sessions. She provided supplemental material beyond the text book. My daughter learned a lot. ...
