Ciao guys, Mattia here.

Have you ever wanted to speak Italian but you don’t know how to start? You are in the right place!
I know the challenge that comes with learning a foreign language - I was born and raised in Italy and now live in the US.

I’m excited to offer you online lessons where I will help you achieve your goals in the easiest way with conversation and repetition. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to speak like a pro!

Are you ready to improve your skills?

Was concerning how an online lesson would go for a beginner. Now I am so pleased to highly recommend Mattia even you have zero experience. He is very responsive and patient answering any questions. Really enjoyed learning and playing drum from scratch with Mattia, one step up a time and keep practicing. Time will reward you
Rina
Just had my first lesson with Mattia and he gave me a lot of valuable tips right away. Exercises to practice on my free time every day which I think will provide a solid base for my practice in the future. Looking forward to seeing how far I can go!
Aaron
Mattia is an extremely patient and cheerful teacher, an excellent instructor for a first time student. My child had no previous musical experience, and Mattia worked with him to learn the basics, even when he forgot his drum pad at his other parent's home. Mattia was flexible with the instruction time, and you can tell that he simply enjoys the subject and sharing his knowledge with others. Happily recommend!

About Simona

I was born and raised in Italy. When I moved to the States in 2005, I barely spoke English. That's why I decided to start teaching Italian. I know how difficult it is to go to a foreign country and not be able to buy something as simple as bread. I will send you links, we will read together,

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.
Robin
Very enjoyable!! I am excited.

Private Italian Teacher

I've been teaching Italian since 2004 and my students have gone to learn and love not only the language, but also the rich Italian culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to handle basic conversations; later you'll learn to talk about the past and the future, etc. I use different types of materials: books, but also extracts from magazine, songs, videos, commercials, etc. I love mixing language with culture and pop-culture as they all are tightly connected.

Private Italian Teacher

Hi, my name's Alessio and I'm an archaeologist and Italian teacher! If you want to learn Italian and also have a conversation about History and Archaeology (especially Egyptology) we should definitely meet!
I come from Florence, in the heart of Tuscany, the homeland of the Italian language and graduated in Oriental Archaeology at the University of Florence, Faculty of Literature and Philosophy. Currently I live in Fort Pierce area (Florida) and I'm also a PhD student at the Université du Littoral - Côte d'Opale (France).
I have a strong experience of teaching Italian that I build up in Germany, where I taught Italian in four schools for adults and my students always learnt with great fun. As a your private teacher you will tell me your focus, your aim, if you want to learn fast to order a cappuccino at a bar under the Italian sun or you want to concentrate more into grammar, authors and literature!

¡También se enseña en español!

Apart from that, I have always liked languages and began teaching Italian during the time I was living in Northern Germany. There I had the opportunity to teach in four different

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

I give Gina a 5 star because it doesn't have a 10. She is awesome, smart, fun, and caring. I take Spanish and makes so much easier because she also speaks fluent Portuguese (my native language), and she can explain the difference between both language. I highly recommend Gina :)

"Maria is a fantastic teacher. She is engaging, bright, articulate, and has a great sense of humor. She is clearly interested in the progress of the student. She is quick to gauge the level of the student's facility with the language and tailors the lessons accordingly. I have learned a great deal from her. Not only Italian language, but customs, culture, and even hand gestures (not the obscene ones, of course).

I highly recommend that you enroll with her--you will learn a lot and have a great time while doing it."
