Ciao/ Hello! My name is Francesca. I was born and raised in Italy. I have been teaching Italian since 2008 at levels ranging from beginner to advanced and to all ages. My lessons are fun, dynamic, and flexible. They intended to develop speaking, listening, writing and reading skills and offer fun conversation on a variety of topics. Students learn the language through practical examples of daily life situations. Each lesson can be tailored to the students’ needs. I have also tailored my lessons for students that want to learn the Italian language for traveling purposes. Learning a language goes hand in hand with understanding the culture. My lessons are focused on using the Italian culture to provide the setting that helps the students learn the language and feel comfortable and confident when speaking to native Italian speaking persons.

I've been taking Italian with Francesca for a long time, 5 years now, She's great at building confidence and keeping lessons fun, she encourages you in activities that improve
conversation, writing and reading skills.
I have learned so much in her classes and I can tell you with confidence that I speak Italian fluently.
I recommend her highly.
Junko H.
Amazing teacher and love the class (and classmates)! Taking her classes for a few years now. Mix of daily conversations, grammar, and common Italian expressions...that we can actually use!
Erta
I would highly recommend Francesca Bruni as an Italian teacher! She has been my Italian teacher for a number of years! Her ability to instruct vocabulary, grammar and comprehension all woven together with themes of Italian culture has provided me with a rapid acquisition of essential and enjoyable conversation skills. Not only are Francesca’s instructional materials relevant and engaging, but whether presented in an in-person manner or online virtual setting, allow for a highly successful experience. You will be amazed at how quickly you will become a fluent Italian speaker, reader, and writer!

Private Italian Teacher

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

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.

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!

I have been living for a year in Italy, Bologna (2007-2008). I started to learn Italian there. It seemed to be hard. With time, it has been becoming more natural. This is a beautiful language one can learn.

I picked up most of my Italian work for an Italian organization for 7 years. Now it is my past. However, Italian is still my present and I would love to share my knowledge with those who learn Italian.
I will customize the lesson for each student. The most important is trust between a teacher and a student. If you feel I could help you, I would love to help.

Mi piacerebbe di trovare il modo di condividere con gli altri quello che ho imparato io. Grazie! Alla prossima!

Amazing teacher, was able to cover so much ground on the first day alone. She will definitely get you where you need to go and is very nice and helpful.
Anastassiya
I appreciated the lessons with Irina. She helped me a lot with my English.

She managed to find the closest way for me to start speaking. I'd say her superpower is good knowledge of the subject together with the good awareness of how human mind works. It makes the learning highly effective.

Irina, thank you!
Stephen
Only language teacher, who has lot of patience to address your queries, appreciate it. She can also touch upon various literary works which would ignite further interest in language learning. Much recommended.

"Maria is an amazing instructor! I loooove her passion for teaching, and even though sometimes it is challenging for me, I love the one-on-one attention, it keeps me on my toes and it truly allows me to learn. Maria makes an effort to speak in Italian constantly, and if a word comes up that I don't understand, she describes it until I actually get it! She inspired me to go to Italy and continue learning Italian. I can understand 90% of what she says now! So exciting! Another highlight of her class is that she makes it fun and we speak about culture, and food, and our lives. I love her classes, and I highly recommend Maria! Grazie Maria, mia insegnante preferita!"
