I believe…

  • that language learning should be fun
  • that to really learn Italian you have to use it!
  • that regular practice makes you more confident, and more confidence means more interactions
  • that the desire to communicate should be our main focus, much more than grammar and vocabulary sets
  • that there are no “gifted”: language learning is a passion, you just have to find the right approach
You have been learning Italian for a while on your own now. You have practiced vocabulary sets and grammar drills. Yet, when it’s time to speak you feel tongue-tied and powerless.
During a normal interaction among native speakers, there is so little time to think about what you want to say, and by the time you have figured out the words, the conversation has moved on already!

An experienced Italian teacher, instead of just giving you material to study, will listen to you and guide you through the language learning process, giving you tips and tricks on the topics you struggle the most.

  • This is the way teaching should be done!

    It’s always a hoot having a lesson with Martina. She has a wonderful sense of humor and a great teaching style. If you don’t know an Italian word or concept that she uses… Instead of giving you a translation (which she could easily do in a second, with her excellent English skills), she explains it over and over again (in Italian) until you really understand it in Italian. Brava, Martina!

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • A joy to work with!

    Martina gets 10 stars for displaying, patience, support, and knowledge of her profession. I have been a mental boulder lately and without her support, I would not have been able to move forward. This young woman is a wonderful professoressa. Grazie, Martina!

    A joy to work with!

  • You can't go wrong with Martina!

    Lessons with Martina are always fun and full of laughter. The standard is always challenging but she is very patient and encouraging and my confidence in speaking and listening has really improved. You will learn lots about Italian culture as well!

    Having one-on-one lessons with Martina is much more effective (and enjoyable!) than traditional classroom lessons. So if you are looking for a professional teacher who is also a lot of fun, you can’t go wrong with Martina!

    You can't go wrong with Martina!
