My profile title should give you a pretty good idea of what I like about my Country (Italy, obviously).
My most recent tutoring experiences included
- an ex-police officer, now bodyguard for a VIP in New York City. His love for Italy included cars, dogs and food (he end up going to Bologna, my hometown, for a 1 month course to learn how to cook, and indeed he did, just ask his wife!),
- a female firefighter (high ranking) in love with Italian Art, small Italian towns, good wine and Italian clothes. We also end-up friends, so she does not go over there with two daughters (on a yearly basis) if I do not prepare a new itinerary all the time.
For me, it was always fun tutoring! So if you get on bored, maybe the next time I can update my list of "friends" with your own Italian experience for others to smile about. My profile title should give you a pretty good idea of what I like about my Country (Italy, obviously).

She took a lot of time to review where I am in the language and what my goals are. Great instructor
Cecilia is a wonderful teacher. She's patient when needed, but will make you open up if you're not confident enough to speak up, especially in the beginning. Material flow and pace are highly customized to the student's needs and no stone is left unturned. I especially love the cultural tidbits I learn with every lesson. That is hard to get from a book or from someone who isn't a native speaker. I thoroughly enjoy every hour, so much so that I completely lose track of time. Don't contact her, because I want all of her time to myself.
Update: Just realized I have only had 10 lessons with Lia and the progress, I must say, has been exponential. Love Lia and love WyzAnt. Had I stuck with Rosetta Stone, I would be sounding like a 5 year old for ages to come.
Lia is a phenomenal tutor and a wonderful person! Every week I look forward to being with her. She gives so much of her heart and soul to our sessions and she is becoming a good friend! I am learning so much more than just the language. She is exposing us to all aspects and that is what makes her unique. My husband and I feel Lia is a perfect fit for us.
Cecilia is very patient and understanding of my needs/ability to grasp the Italian language.
She is not only teaching the language, but the culture, history and social dynamic of Italy and its people. Excellent experience. I highly recommend Cecilia has a tutor.
Celia is a great tutor. Our lessons are comprehensive and fun. She is always prepared and continuously emails information and references to aide in your studies.
I look forward to each week as the learning experience becomes more exciting each time. Lia encourages questions and always has the answer ready. She explains all details very thoroughly. I can't wait until next week!
There have been four lessons so far, and I can already see improvement. Cecilia has shown great patience and a fine sense of humor as she attempts to teach not only the Italian language but also the culture and spirit of Italy. I highly recommend her.
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.
