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.

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!

Judith, 8 lessons with Ester

Extremely knowledgeable, competent, and patient.

She taught Italian to my kids, who go to an Italian school. She helped them improve their reading and writing. Ester was looking for different ways to accomplish this, using a wide range of tools. Outstanding.

Samuele, 4 lessons with Ester

She comes to the lesson with a very well designed plan for the objectives I have in mind.

She keeps the lesson very lively and interesting...I like her approach to the lesson - it is very practical, and she explains things in a very easy to follow manner.
