I am a patient and kind tutor interested in teaching the Italian language. I teach school-age students as well as adults in-person and on-line.
I am a native Italian speaker and I like to work with students of all levels. I have experience working with students who are learning the basics of the Italian language as well as with students who wish to improve their already advanced knowledge of the language, practice conversation and improve their pronunciation.
I am happy to adapt the lesson's format to the students' preferences and to accept suggestions.
During the lessons there is always time for the students to ask questions and clarifications.
I do my best to keep the lessons as relaxed and fun as possible for the students who are learning Italian as a pure interest, the one who are getting ready for a journey as well as for the ones who wish to improve their high school or college grades.
When a lessons contains several information about grammatical rules, I write a summary so the students can review them in their own time.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Silvia was a great help to my son who was desperate to pass his class with little time left. She offered to schedule a session with him the same day. Thanks Silvia!

Very knowledgeable and thorough instructor!

Sivia is a thorough teacher. She is not only prepared for lessons but sends info in advance of the next lesson to provide time for a student to read and process. In one hour, Sivia creates a relaxed, no pressure learning experience that inspires you to speak, read, and write Italian!

Megan, 13 lessons with Silvia

Enjoyable Teaching Method

She was very flexible to my needs and I learned quite a bit on our first session. She has also shared study materials with me to support me during my independent study time. I look forward to many more sessions.

Patient and understanding tutor

Silvia is a great teacher. She explains Italian well. Each time she makes me feel that I have learned something new. I had five lessons with Silvia. I'm a high school student preparing to take Italian in college.

Katarzyna, 59 lessons with Silvia

Veramente lei e un’insegnante molto buona!

We worked a lot with direct and indirect object pronouns, useage of verbs in specific situations, and spoke in Italian to each other, during which she was generously gracious and encouraging to me.

First lesson a success

Learning the basics was exactly what I needed to start to really learn how to pronounce the letters and sound them out, first lesson a success! Exactly what I need to practice before our next lesson. Her follow up instructions are very helpful

She is awesome

Silvia is a great tutor and wants the best for her students. She is helpful, patient, and prepares you for Italian exams beforehand. Please, make you do the work and be ready to learn.

Sabrina, 2 lessons with Silvia

Knowledgeable, patient tutor

Silvia takes time to explain new words and phrases. She speaks slowly and makes sure I understand as we go along. We split our time between conversation and grammar. Silvia is encouraging, kind and patient.

Catherine, 165 lessons with Silvia

Knowledgeable and friendly

Silvia made our first lesson interesting and fun. We talked about Italian language grammar and usage including gender, verbs, and sentence structure. Looking forward to continuing!
