From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I teach to both kids and adults and I'm passionate about what I do. I'm not just an American born here who has parents or distant relatives born in Italy. I was born and raised in Italy and lived there for 25 years of my life! I don't teach just grammar but also Italian art, culture and cuisine!
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
For the first couple of lessons, just bring a pen and paper. I will provide the rest. Then if you decide that you want to continue, I will recommend two books to purchase for exercises and course support.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I love my adoptive country, the US, and I'm passionate about teaching Americans about Italy, the real one. Not the one you see on tv or the stereotypical one you hear from stories. I will teach you about real deal! Including how to properly pronounce "bruschetta"!
What do you love most about your job?
I love sharing the real Italian culture which sometimes is a victim of stereotypes or is misrepresented in Hollywood Movies and I love seeing the curiosity in my students and the surprise in learning new facts, or getting them ready for their next trip to "Il Bel Paese"
