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.

Very knowledgeable, kind, and patient tutor

Sylvia is a wonderful tutor - kind, attentive, organized, and very knowledgeable. She listens carefully, and designs lessons to help you meet your goals. One could not ask for more in a teacher.

Review of SIlvia M's teaching

Silvia is an exceptionally talented teacher. Extremely knowledgeable and able to communicate even complex material to us She makes every lesson interesting and takes into account our wishes, and our capabilities. Perhaps one of the finest teachers either of us have encountered in many years of studying. Mimi and John

Knowledgeable and very patient!!

She is very versatile and was able to switch gears and meet me and teach me where I am at. I will definitely have another lesson with her. Going forward, we will break down the connecting small words that I am having trouble with and hopefully will get back my fluency!

Ray, 1 lesson with Silvia

Great! Definitely will use her again!

She focused exactly on what my daughter personally needed and she was very easy for her to understand. She felt she prepared her very well for her Italian II honors exam.

Thoughtful and knowledgeable tutor

Silvia helped me prepare for a language test and thanks to her I did really well. She corrected me each time I made a mistake which I had requested that she do. She has a deep understanding of the Italian language and can teach any level of student.

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, 29 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.
