About Cecilia


Bio

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 Itali...

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.

Frank, 6 lessons with Cecilia

Great orientation lesson

We had our first lesson with Cecilia last week. She was well prepared and patient when working with my 3 children. She followed thru on everything we had discussed. We are really looking forward to continuing our lessons!

Christine, 7 lessons with Cecilia

wonderful tutor

Cecilia(Lia) is patient and considerate, our mutual interest in Italian Opera bridges the gap of learning the language and is very understanding with my time restraints, exccellente, insegnante meraviglioso!

Ed, 2 lessons with Cecilia

Wonderful Teacher!

Cecilia is very patient and has a fun way about her. She has the ability to explain the language in an understandable way. She is remarkable.

Kathy, 32 lessons with Cecilia

Thorough, dedicated and fun!

She took a lot of time to review where I am in the language and what my goals are. Great instructor

Veronica, 4 lessons with Cecilia

Excellent teacher - patient, authentic, and just tough enough

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.

Phenomenal tutor

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.

Rosemary, 12 lessons with Cecilia

Cecilia is very patient and understanding.

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.
