About Ester

NOTICE: As I will soon relocate in Italy, I am looking to increment my ONLINE LESSONS. Please ask for more details.

Ciao!

My name is Ester, born and raised in Italy, and I teach Italian and English as a Second Language. I studied in Rome at the School for Interpreters and Translators. I came in my mid twenties to the US to study AST and achieved other specializations as well. I have privately tutored in several subjects but in the last decade, I have been focusing in teaching English and lately, mainly Italian. Experience includes teaching Italian at a private school for government employees who successfully pass the FSI test; I also teach Italian II as well as an "Italian for Travelers" course focusing on language essentials, culture, ideas, advice and more, for people planning a trip to Italy at a local public school in the adult education program.

I enjoy the interaction and the opportunity to teach my language and my culture while always learning something new myself. I am looking also for the opportunity to start teaching English again. Feel free to contact me with any questions or additional information you may require.

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.

ESL/ESOL

A very encouraging first lesson

My first lesson with Ester was very enjoyable and productive. She came prepared with magazines and a photocopied article for me to bring home and prepare for next week's lesson. She is very easy to talk with. I can tell after just one lesson that she will help me achieve my goals: to expand my Italian vocabulary and to become more comfortable in conversation. Looking forward to next week!
