About Veronica

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!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Classics

I hold a four years Degree in Classical Studies from the University of Parma (Italy), which included classes on both Greek and Latin literature, history, art, and archaeology.
I wrote a philologic dissertation on a Sapphus' unpublished papyrus.
I have already tutored college students in this subject for 13 years in Italy.

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,
