About Veronica


Bio

Hi students,

My name is Veronica. I am from Parma, Italy and have lived in Boston for just over a year. I hold a degree in Classical Studies (Italian, Latin, and Greek) from the University of Parma. My knowledge of all these languages, as well as being a Native Italian speaker, have prepared me to be an excellent tutor of Italian grammar.

Hi students,

My name is Veronica. I am from Parma, Italy and have lived in Boston for just over a year. I hold a degree in Classical Studies (Italian, Latin, and Greek) from the University of Parma. My knowledge of all these languages, as well as being a Native Italian speaker, have prepared me to be an excellent tutor of Italian grammar.

I have extensive tutoring experience. I have tutored from Italy and abroad for over 13-years in a range of subjects, including Italian language, literature, and culture. I have worked as a private tutor, tutor for the Boston College community promoted by the Department of Romance Language and Literatures, and as an Italian teacher at a language institute in Cambridge. My tutoring experience includes both one-to-one and small group lessons. From my wide rage of experience, I am able to easily adapt my teaching to adults, teens, or children. I am flexible, patient, and warm, since I know that, for a student, being comfortable is definitely necessary.

I believe that mastering grammar is an essential foundation for learning any language. My approach is based on this belief, and I strive to integrate grammar across and within lessons in ways that make learning effective and fun. My method embraces grammar, repetition, translation, and conversation. Further, I motivate students by introducing them to different aspects of Italian culture, which encompasses art, food, and our particular way of life. In Italy, I helped to organize both cultural and touristic events, cultural exchanges between people of different European countries, and travel excursions to Italian cities. I infuse all of this experiences into my teaching, in order to make learning Italian a fantastic immersion in our Country.

Are you ready to be immersed in the best of Italy without leaving Boston? I am ready and looking forward to starting working with you!

Fabulous Job

I contacted Veronica regarding translation of Italian song texts from the 1600s. It required a deep familiarity with the language plus some historical knowledge. She did a fabulous job. In fact, one person attending the concert who is a former senior staff person from Handel and Haydn society (and has dealt with many text translations) was effusive in his praise of the translation quality. Brava, Veronica!

Great teacher!

After just the first lesson, I feel like I made so much progress. Veronica figured out quickly at which level my Italian speaking capabilities were and she took it from there. I can't wait for my next lesson.

Carleen, 6 lessons with Veronica

Excellent tutor

I learned common verbs used in italian in the present and past participles. Veronica had me construct sentences then she corrected where I made mistakes or congratulated me when I constructed correctly. Veronica gave me more verbs for my homework. I am looking forward to my next session.

Monica, 4 lessons with Veronica

Great first lesson!

My first lesson with Veronica went very well. Her presentation of the material is clear and concise, and she makes sure that you understand the lesson before continuing to the next one. Compared to on-line lessons, it was nice to ask questions and have them answered immediately. I learned so much more in my one lesson than several on-line lessons. Her patience and kindness allowed me to learn at my own pace with no pressure. Great first lesson!
