About Lauren

Ciao!

My name is Lauren and I'm a bilingual Italian filmmaker, native to Los Angeles and lived and worked in Rome for several years. My deep understanding of both cultures make me a unique tutor, instructor and guide.

I have 11 years of experience as an Italian instructor as well as 12 years of film production experience in addition to my degree.

I offer personally tailored Italian lessons for adults, students and children and am also available for immersion courses before your trip to Italy. I also offer thorough tips and guidance for traveling to Italy, and endless recommendations for your meals and stay. I enjoy helping you make the most of your trip, avoid tourist traps and learn cultural nuances you wouldn't otherwise have access to.

I also have a rich film production background. I have won 13 Telly awards as a commercial director, I have extensive set experience and film knowledge and experience teaching at a Los Angeles film school.

I am very flexible, thorough and encouraging. I instruct from my home and am also available to meet you at your home, office or local park.

I think you'll find that I'm a great fit for all of your Italian or Film needs. I can work with individuals, groups or families of all ages.

Please contact me with further questions and I'll be happy to help make your lessons as wonderful as they can possibly be!

A presto!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Film

I grew up with a rich film background. Directing was always my goal and I began taking after school film courses, reviewing films and making my own short films at a very young age. I went on to study film at UCLA, USC and ultimately Art Center College of Design. I have worked professionally in film production for the last 12 years both here and abroad and I currently direct and produce freelance. I have won 7 Telly Awards as a director and 5 more as a producer for work in short films, commercials and music videos. My understanding of film is extensive from both creative and technical standpoints given that I've worked on and off set in nearly every role.

Italian

I tutor Italian language, grammar, fluency, and translations for adults, children, professionals, groups and families.

I'm a dual citizen of the US and Italy. I grew up in LA with a very Italian family and as an adult lived and worked in Italy for several years.

I have taught Italian for 9 years.

Video Production

I direct and produce and have worked in various film production roles from a young age. I completed a UCLA extension film program while in high school and went on to do USC film production abroad and ultimately major in film directing at Art Center College of Design. Since then, I've freelanced both here and in Italy and have won 7 Telly Awards as a director, and 5 more as a producer.

Remarkable progress made in just five lessons!

Lauren was a fantastic tutor for my son, age 20. In just five lessons, he learned an incredible amount of grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. I feel like he is now prepared to communicate with the locals in the small Italian town where he is now doing a summer program. He would have loved to do even more lessons with Lauren, but he had only a short window of time to fit in these lessons. Even
