About Rosaria


Bio

I enjoy teaching young children, youth, and adults, simply because I enjoy teaching, period! I realize that each individual has specific needs, challenges, and gifts, and as such needs individualized tutoring.

I am very patient and capable of breaking down things to the simplest form so that the subject matter can be understood. I find creative ways to teach, as I know that not all children learn in the same manner: some are more visual than auditory; some are more hands-on than abstract...

I enjoy teaching young children, youth, and adults, simply because I enjoy teaching, period! I realize that each individual has specific needs, challenges, and gifts, and as such needs individualized tutoring.

I am very patient and capable of breaking down things to the simplest form so that the subject matter can be understood. I find creative ways to teach, as I know that not all children learn in the same manner: some are more visual than auditory; some are more hands-on than abstract and so on. I have seen different children go through the tutoring process and successfully accomplish their goal: learning and mastering a subject with which they had difficulty in the past. I have many years of experience tutoring one on one, as well as quite a few years of teaching in the classroom, both foreign languages and English. I am committed to helping you achieve your goal, no matter what!

I was born in Italy and did all my elementary schooling in Italian. When I arrived in North America, I had to learn English and French at the same time. I continued to study both languages throughout the years that led up to my Bachelor of Arts degree, including Spanish. Along the way, I also completed American Sign Language Level IV. I have been able to keep up my Italian language, as it is my mother tongue, and still the only language I use to communicate with my mom.

I hold a Clear Multiple Subjects Credential K-12 and a Clear Single Subject Credential in Italian.

Please note that if I need to travel more than 30 miles each way, I need to charge $60.00/hr because of the travel time and to cover my gas expenses.
I am available for long term, short term, and one-time tutoring in person and online.
Ciao e a presto! A bientot! Hasta pronto!

I have taught Senior High School English to American youth and to foreign students from South Korea, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Japan for 2 years. I taught an ESL class for the foreign students who had not passed their TOEFL test and needed further instruction in English, in order for them to take a regular English class. I was a foreign student myself, as I had to learn English and French at the same time when I arrived from Italy to North America. I understand the struggles that come from learning a second language and being familiar with the common obstacles, I am very patient when teaching English.

Special Needs

Hard of Hearing,

Hard of Hearing

In my American Sign Language course of study, I learned about the difference between deaf and hard of hearing, ASL and oral interpreting, and all the nuances that hearing impairment causes. I hold a certificate of ASL (Level IV) through the Canadian Hearing Society. I was immersed in deaf culture and all its nuances for 2 years, and I learned the psychology, sociology, and communication aspects of hearing impairment. I know that hard-of-hearing people do not always want to necessarily identify with the deaf population, and that some opt for oral interpretation, and some have been directed to learn lip-reading rather than ASL. I understand about CODA (children of deaf adults) and the dynamics involved in families where everyone is hearing and there is only one deaf person. Blindness separates one from things; deafness separates one from people. My own father was hearing impaired, so I have first-hand experience on how that affects a family.

I have been given the go-ahead to teach Italian home-made cooking for the Santa Clarita Parks & Recreation Department starting in January 2011. I have taken an extension course at UCLA taught by Norman Kolpas, leading author, writer, and speaker, on How to Write a Cookbook. I am a very experienced and skilled cook. My grandparents in Italy were restaurateurs and my father grew up in the restaurant business. He taught everything he knew to my mom and in turn, my mom taught me. I started cooking family meals at the age of 11. I enjoy cooking; it is my passion, especially Italian cooking. I can make pizza dough from scratch, meat sauce, lasagna, cannelloni, ravioli and tortellini from fresh pasta, risotto, tiramisu', cannoli, Sicilian and Neapolitan, and so much more.

Excellent tutor!

I’ve loved working with Rosaria so far. I’ve been trying to learn for a couple of years, but haven’t had the structure or discipline to get far. Rosaria is knowledgeable, patient and organized. I feel optimistic about my journey to learning Italian with her!

Knowledgeable, patient and encouraging!!

Rosaria has help me so much with my Italian! I've had several lessons with her working on different parts of Italian. Today we worked on verb and the grammar structure of sentences. Then we went over passato prossimo with the verb essere. She is always willing to help me with any area I need help, including conversation.

Great teacher!

She really helped me a lot for a last minute essay. She is very caring, generous, and patient. She helped me outside of our session as well. I really recommend her as a tutor!

Very patient and kind tutor

Rosaria helped me with Sign Language! She was very patient with me and was very easy to work with. Learning a new language can be difficult and awkward but she made me feel super comfortable and helped me work through any questions I had. She asked for any information about my assignment beforehand so that we could make the best of our time together. She is a wonderful tutor and I will definitely be scheduling more sessions!

Rosaria C was a fantastic tutor

Rosaria C was a fantastic tutor during a two-week sprint to prepare myself for a government-issued Italian exam. She quickly assessed my level, made sure she understood what the exam would be testing, and then devised a detailed strategy to focus on the areas where I most needed help. It worked! I got one of my best ever scores on an Italian exam despite having been very rusty just prior to having Rosaria as my tutor. Learning a language is a lot of work, but Rosaria made it very engaging and enjoyable. She went above and beyond to research texts and conversation topics that would best prepare me for my test. Best of all, Rosaria has a great sense of humor and we laughed a lot together. I would highly recommend Rosaria as a tutor to anyone, whether long-term or for short-term engagements. You won't regret it!

French Tutor Extraordinaire!

Rosaria is SUPERB! If you are in need of a French tutor, CHOOSE ROSARIA. My daughter has only had 3 tutoring sessions with Rosaria and we can already see a HUGE difference! My daughter is taking an online French course and has had difficulty with the pronunciation and the communication portions of the course. Rosaria has been such a big help (Tres Bon)! My daughter's grade in the course has already seen improvements and she Is SO much more confident! -Learning French has even become fun for her! Thank you, (Merci) Rosaria!! You've been amazing!
