I'm an Italian teacher in my 30's. I teached Italian in Italy (Milan) at primary school, thus I know very well what could be the troubles for the beginners and how to fix it as quick as students can. In addition, I'm a graduated in Economics and Management (M. Sc.).

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.

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.

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.

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!

She makes me feel like I am physically in Italy and learning not just the language, but also the culture. She uses her real life experiences, as a native Italian, to help me want to learn more about the language, culture, art, philosophy, food and all that is exciting about Italy.
