About Silvana

I was born in Carrara, city of the white marble, Italy. I have loved to study and learn languages since very young, that is what brought me to the United States: to learn English. I have a background in Latin and understand how the Latin languages work. I have taught Spanish for many years at a private school, where I developed my own curriculum. I taught Italian at the Fondazione Italia, at Conejo Valley Adult Education, and privately.

Depending on the level of skill of the student, I use different methods of instruction. I like to make my teaching fun but also grammatically and phonetically sound.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Grammar

I studied Latin and several foreign languages. I have taught languages for over 20 years, and I am familiar with how languages work; grammar is at the core of every language.

Italian

I was born in Italy and have an Elementary School Teaching Degree from Pisa. I have experience in teaching Italian and Spanish, and have taught for many years. With a background in Latin, I have been able to help English speaking students understand the basic of grammar which is very important in order to learn to speak another language properly. I have a Master of Art and I began a program called Living Learning Italian: Full Immersion in Italy, where I bring adult students to learn the language, the culture and the art.

Spanish

I have been teaching Spanish for 18 years at the High School level. The syllabus I wrote has been used internationally.
