SinceJanuary, 2022

Greetings everyone, my name is Anna and I am originally from Italy but have lived in California for fifteen years. My experience as an Italian teacher spans eight years and includes instructing individuals of all ages in private schools. Currently, I teach Italian to students at a private high school called "Palma" in Salinas (CA), as well as at an adult school known as the "Dante Alighieri Society of Santa Cruz".

My instructional methods are designed to instill confidence and clarity in speaking Italian. I specialize in teaching grammar and encourage my students to converse in Italian as much as they can during lessons, in a comfortable setting. In this way, they can quickly expand their Italian language skills.

I offer discounted rates for students, retired individuals, and anyone interested in buying packages of ten lessons in advance. My hobbies include traveling, teaching, and making Italian cuisine for my loved ones!

Anna is an exceptional teacher who has wonderfully captivated my wife and me in our journey of learning Italian. Despite our failed attempts in the past, Anna's skillful ability to assess our proficiency level and alter the program accordingly has created an enjoyable and progressive learning experience. We eagerly anticipate continuing our Italian lessons with Anna and highly recommend her to anyone seeking to overcome their learning challenges.

Anna, my new Italian tutor, is absolutely amazing! There are not enough positive words to describe her. After attempting to learn Italian on my own and realizing I needed assistance from a professional, I am so grateful to have found Anna. She quickly evaluated my strengths and weaknesses, and developed a plan to help me reach the next level of proficiency in our future sessions. Thank you so much, Anna! Grazie Mille!

Anna provided introductory Italian tutoring to my 14-year-old son before his trip to Italy with friends this summer. She carefully organized the curriculum to incorporate a balance of conversational and grammatical instruction, and my son greatly appreciated their daily meetings. He displayed a solid grasp of the material taught. Anna proved to be incredibly accommodating, working with our schedule to make sessions possible, and was consistently punctual. I highly recommend Anna as a tutor!
