About Serena

Hello Everyone!

My name is Serena and I recently moved from Milan, Italy to New Jersey! For the past 7 years I have tutored both Italian students learning English, and American students learning Italian! I also have just graduated from Montclair State University's Italian department, and will be looking for a full time teaching position soon. Italian can be tough at times but we will work through everything so that not only are the words and structure correct but your pronunciation is perfect!

Like most things in life, practice makes perfect! Students who have a tutor outside of the classroom not only to ask questions to, but to practice the language with, make the difference between really learning the language and being able to use it instead of just passing a test. My goal is to take you beyond the classroom and put Italian into practice so that you can remember the material, and better yet, be able to use it when you visit Italy.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Italian

I am a native born Italian and lived there until I was 23. I moved to the USA 2 years ago and have been tutoring ever since. In my experience tutoring, teachers that are not native speakers sometimes do not have the correct pronunciation or do not always teach the correct way of saying things. The benefit to having a native speaker is that you will learn the correct pronunciation and also learn "modern" Italian.

A terrific tutor!

I highly recommend Serena to anyone interested in learning Italian or needing an Italian tutor for school. Serena is from Italy and knows exactly how to teach the Italian language. She is also a very nice girl and is really patient so reviewing complicated topics is a pleasure. I've been able to learn a lot from our sessions and am very thankful to find her as my tutor.
