About Barbara

I was born and raised in Bologna, Italy, where I completed my Italian literature studies at the University of Bologna. I lived in Rome for 10 years, and started teaching Italian as a second language to the children of immigrants.

After moving to the USA, I began tutoring Italian because of my passion for teaching and in particular for Italian language and culture.

Many people around the world have good reasons for learning the Italian language, and many of them are Italian descendants.

If you are looking to improve your grades in Italian class at school, improve in the language for business, or want to feel comfortable speaking Italian while you travel the country, I am here to help you.

I began teaching Italian in private sessions and have worked for the most famous language company in the world for four years. My students' ages range from 13 to 80 years; they are students, attorneys, college professors, musicians, opera singers, flight attendants, pilots, basketball players and retirees. My students come from many different parts of the world, from Japan to Nigeria, and speak different languages. I personalize my teaching method based on the background of each person, their reasons for learning and their expectations.

You will learn Italian in a natural and funny way, with a full immersion in the Italian culture. We will explore the language through social, cultural, and political events, reading newspapers and articles together. I teach basically conversational courses with vocabulary and language structure goals.

All of my students have shown a huge improvement and enjoy my classes. I am focused on speaking and pronunciation, interacting with my students and progressively taking your abilities to higher levels.


I am available for online and in-person sessions.
Are you ready? Parliamo Italiano!
