Learn with me

I am a native speaker and fully trained Italian teacher with over 1600 hours of online teaching experience. All lessons are tailored to your needs, whether is to be able to get around once traveling to Italy, or to fulfill your passion becoming fluent in Italian, I will make your goals my priority.

FAQ

  • I have a Bachelors in Italian Language and Literature, and a Masters in Language Sciences and Applied Linguistics with a specialization in Teaching Italian as a foreign language.

    I constantly keep updated with seminars, webinars, and certifications to always offer the best learning experience.

    I am currently studying to get an additional teaching certificate (CEDILS).

  • I started teaching Italian as a Second Language in Rome as a volunteer in a school for migrants. Later I started an afternoon Italian laboratory for speakers of other languages in a middle school, as well.

    When I moved back to Venice I worked as an Italian tutor at Venice International University for a semester, while being an Italian tutor online as well.

    Eventually, in January 2017, I decided to move my teaching from in-class to online on a full-time basis.

  • I am fluent in Italian, my native language, of course. I am fluent in English (American) as I have graduated from an American High School as well.

    I do speak also Spanish (my current focus of study) and French, as well as Italian Sign Language.

  • Alas, no.

    And beware of who tells you so. Learning a language is a full time, life-long commitment. As such cannot be reduced to one hour per week with a teacher.

    I can guide you through Italian grammar, give you tips on how to study or what to study. I can help you practice any skill, especially speaking, as well as adapting my teaching style to your needs and your goals.

    What I can’t do is infuse knowledge into you: sitting back and expecting to learn everything hasn’t made anybody magically fluent…

  • For the moment I am only on italki (you can find me here), but soon I will have a complete calendar on this website as well as a step-by-step video explaining to you how to go through the booking process!
