About Daiana


Bio

I have been teaching Italian since 1984 and successfully prepared travelers for their journeys in all aspects: language, history, geography, art, food, music, fashion.
I also tutor all age students who take Italian in school.

My first approach consists in figuring out what type of student I work with (auditory vs. visual) and adapt my method based on what works best for the learner.

I then analyze the reason for learning the language and focus on how effective I can make the classes based...

I have been teaching Italian since 1984 and successfully prepared travelers for their journeys in all aspects: language, history, geography, art, food, music, fashion.
I also tutor all age students who take Italian in school.

My first approach consists in figuring out what type of student I work with (auditory vs. visual) and adapt my method based on what works best for the learner.

I then analyze the reason for learning the language and focus on how effective I can make the classes based on that purpose.
Including the history and roots of the language in the learning process makes my students eager to return.

For school age tutoring I study the program and engage my students in effective long term understanding of the grammar and its rules in addition to implementing conversation skills.

I also teach 'parent and me' classes to have toddlers and children learn Italian at the same time as English and creating the bilingual child. Parents learn at the same time and reinforce the vocabulary when the teacher/coach is not with them.

Excellent Tutor

She teaches me the way that I learn. I am methodical and logical in my Approach to learning Italian. I want to be fluent and to read and write Italian so I need more than conversational instruction and I need explanations for maximum retention. She's so good that I hesitate writing this review because she is already in high demand and her schedule is very full.
