Practical Stuff

  • 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!

  • 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…

About the teacher

  • 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.
