I started teaching Italian in 1985, in McAllen, Texas, as a private tutor. I again kept tutoring Italian, this time for freshmen college students in Sugar Land, Texas in 2015. I am an Italian native speaker, and at the present time I am writing short stories in Italian.

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.

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 :)
