I have been teaching Italian for 5 years now, I have traveled to Italy numerous times spending time with Italian-only speaking families and I enjoy talking about almost anything Italian. If you are looking for lessons and you are just beginning or have been speaking for some time I would love to help you improve your knowledge of the language to become a fluent speaker.

Private Italian Teacher

Ciao amici! I'm Rita! I'm 30 years old, and was born and raised in Catania (Sicilia bella) Italy. I have a degree in food science from the Universita' di Catania. When I moved in America 5 years ago, I also decided to study to become a dental hygienist and to improve my English skills. But my real passion is to teach, share my knowledge, communicate and connect with people, learn from my students different approaches to interact with students. I teach yoga, Pilates and my beautiful language, Italian. As a real Sicilian I have a big passion for food, cooking but especially eating :) I love to help students reach their goals. With a little bit of patience and passion I believe everyone has the potential to succeed. Can't wait to meet you! Ci vediamo :)

I spoke fluent Italian when I lived in Italy 50 years ago, but my abilities have become rusty since then, especially when trying to understand when people speak rapidly, as they usually do in normal conversation. Rita is doing a superb job of helping me to restore my ability to converse!
Johnny S.
Rita is a great teacher. I already knew some Italian, but wanted to work to keep it. Rita is a great conversationalist, and teacher. Always in a great mood and always brightens my day when I have lessons with her. Two thumbs up.

Conversation is in my opinion the most efficient method for remembering words long term and also the best method to learn grammar without stress. I am an Italian native speaker and through my teaching style I intend to boost your motivation to continue learning.

About Simona

Practice makes perfect! My teaching style is based on language living rather than language studying, and while I will provide you with all of the tools to apply the correct grammar rules I encourage you to make mistakes, and learn naturally by being exposed to the language. I am 100% Italian native

Simona is my 3rd Italian teacher and for various reasons. Simona is great! I love that she is having me use Italian in such a practical manner. "Not just memorize". I am still a beginner and am taking 2 lessons per week for 30minutes and I think that works well.
Robert (Bob) B.
After 11 lessons with Simona, I can say that I feel very lucky to have her as my Italian language teacher. Simona is very patient, always encouraging and complimentary. This is what keeps me going and feeling like I'm making progress. I'm a bit older, and don't have the memory muscle of a young person, but Simona patiently finds ways to help me grasp each lesson. I highly recommend Simona to anyone who appreciates a skilled and patient instructor.

Very enjoyable!! I am excited.
