Ciao a tutti! Hello everyone! My name is Cindy and I'm Italian. I've been teaching Italian in schools and privately for many years now...I was raised in Rome where I have lived and worked for most of my life.

Do you want to learn Italian in a natural way, outside the bounds of a traditional language school? Studying a foreign language is an absorbing, complex experience.

It involves not only mastering new words, but also gaining a deeper understanding of the culture in which the language is rooted. To achieve this goal I devote all my enthusiasm, my skill at communication, and a sense of humor which makes for a relaxed study environment.

About Cynthia

Are you going on holiday to Italy? Would you like to learn the language? Do you think it is too hard to learn a language as an adult? Do you think you won't have time to study? There are many ways to learn a language. It doesn't have to be all that complicated or hard. Everyone has a personal way to

I had my first lesson with Simona tonite and she was great. I like the way she writes her lesson plans. Very clear and concise. She is nice and friendly. She made me feel very comfortable.
Melinda S.
Simona is always cheerful and affable and it's a pleasure to take classes with her. She adds information about local Italian usage and nuance that you won't find in most texts, and is especially good at tailoring the lessons to your skill level and interests.

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.

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!

I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

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.
