Cal State University TEACH (Teaching Credentialing Program)
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.
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.

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!
Thank you, Molly! It is a pleasure to teach your daughter and I am so glad that my tutoring is already helping and making it fun! That's how it should be when learning languages! You're welcome!
Rosaria was very helpful to my High School student seeking tutoring in Spanish II. Her teaching techniques were great and she put the student at ease with her friendliness.
Thank you, Hannah! It is pleasure to work with your student. She's doing great!
Rosaria was a huge help to my daughter with her French. She was patient and explained everything very well. We really appreciate how fast she responded to our tutoring request. If you ever need a French tutor in the Antelope Valley, I highly recommend her.
Rosaria is a wonderful tutor. She is a patient, skilled and warm person. My grandson really enjoyed her teaching methods. She has a lot fun tools to help a child learn. My grandson has ADHD and she kept his attention for the hour she taught him. We both give her a big thumbs up!
Thank you so much, Cynthia! I enjoyed tutoring your grandson very much and I shall miss doing so.
I highly recommend Rosaria. She is very professional, patient and skilled. She quickly assessed my daughter's needs and had her back on track to getting an A in French.
Thank you, Nadia! Don't hesitate to contact me should your daughter need any help with the oral exams.
She is always available and very creative. She is always able to adapt to a student's difficulties in learning. She makes one feel comfortable, is dynamic and fun. She's very patient and takes the time to provide a good explanation. She's a very good teacher and one big thanks!
Rosaria, from the first phone call, was considerate of my concerns as a mother. My daughters tutoring goes deeper than just relearning sounds. Rosaria understood from the first meeting that my daughter had really poor self-esteem issues. Rosaria has been gentle, yet firm. She encourages Emily (my daughter), and gets excited when Emily figures something out. We have been with Rosaria only 2 weeks and I see huge results in Emily. Why can I say that I see and hear the learning, and growth? I have been homeschooling children for 12 years.
Rosaria knows how to deal with my child as she does not get tired and learns quickly. Rosaria knows exactly how to teach a child and comes very well prepared for each lesson. She also has a great pronunciation and I know that my daughter will learn English well and properly. She has exceeded my every expectation and I would highly recommend her to anyone else.
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.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology-- I studied Bible for 3 years at Master's College in Ontario, Canada and then completed my B.A. at North Central Bible College in Minneapolis, MN.
My major was Bible and my minor was Youth Ministries.
I have been a student of the Bible for 30 yrs. I have also taught Bible classes in many different settings and to different groups: children, youth, and adults.
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.
I currently hold a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential(Preliminary). I am also approved to do substitute teaching at several, different local school districts (K-8). I have worked as a substitute teacher for several years for Eastside, Westside, and Palmdale school districts, K-6 as well as Middle Schools. I relate very well to elementary school-children and enjoy teaching different subject matters, especially those I have mastered.
I taught Senior High School English (grades 10, 11, and 12) for several years. I was an English major and Language Arts has always been one of my most favorite subjects to learn and teach.
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.
I did all my high school studies in both French and English, while I lived in Montreal, Canada. I also studied French in college and at the university level. I am fluent both in speaking and writing. I can help you!
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 was born in Italy and moved to North America when I was 11 years old. I did all my elementary schooling in Italian and continued speaking Italian in my home. I kept up my Italian in college and have had several opportunities to teach it both one-on-one and in groups. I love my Italian heritage and I love to share my language with those who want to learn it!
I have taught High School Speech and Communication classes and I have been a judge several times at local and State High School Speech Competitions which have taken place at Vanguard University. In my course of studies, I have taken Communication Studies and Speech as part of my Bachelor of Arts degree program. I have had the opportunity to do public speaking in many different settings and in most of the languages I speak.
With my background in languages and experience with teaching English for many years, I am able to assess reading levels and help students improve their reading.
I am confident that I can help you or your child gain accuracy, speed, and comprehension.
Through the Canadian Hearing Society, I was able to get the American Sign Language Certificate Level IV. I was immersed in the deaf community and culture in Minneapolis, MN for two years.
I have had the opportunity to teach basic ASL to children and have done one-on-one interpreting in different situations: doctor's visits, parent-teacher conferences. I have also been privileged to sing and sign and interpret worship services.
I am fluent in Spanish, and am able to tutor this language, as well as all the other languages I speak. I hold an Associate's Arts Degree in Literature and Languages which features: Spanish, French, Italian, English and I am also fluent in American Sign Language.
I can help with speaking, writing, and reading skills in all of the above-mentioned languages.
