Italian Lessons

She is incredible. I had a few Italian teachers before Luisa and none of them compare to her. Her lessons are interactive, challenging, yet non threatening. She carefully designs each class to be unique and knows how to modify them according to my learning style. When I am exhausted, she wakes me up. When I am slacking, she finds ways to make me accountable. Luisa is the very essence of what a teacher is and should strive to be like. I am so grateful I found her! Even my mom takes lessons with her now! And her Italian...God it is gorgeous!

Luisa is the BEST Italian teacher I’ve had! I’ve had a number of Italian teachers at this point and none compare to Luisa! She is organized, has thoughtful lessons planned, and is always on time! She has an incredible ability to detect small errors and bad habits and has a very unique helpful way of correcting them. To me learning to speak Italian has become a passion and something I will continue for a long time. A while back I almost gave up but Luisa helped keep me motivated and on track. I can’t thank her enough!

Italian Lessons

I thoroughly enjoy my weekly Italian lessons with Luisa!! As a fellow teacher I can say her lessons are really on point - she provides a well-balanced approach that incorporates listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as discussions about Italian culture. She uses quality materials and has tons of suggestions for additional resources that I’ve been checking out. Luisa is extremely patient and kind. I really appreciate that she makes herself accessible across the entire week so that I never feel stuck when I need clarification on something I’m practicing. She’s also piloting a new group class which is fantastic - a really fun way to practice chatting with others. I am so grateful to have found such a skilled and professional guide for this experience. I will definitely be ready for my Tuscan adventure :)

Luisa is an excellent tutor. She is very patient and encouraging. Luisa is able to identify how you learn best and where your weaknesses are and cater the lessons around these qualities, which has been incredibly helpful in improving my Italian. It's a very customized approach to learning a language which isn't something I've encountered with other tutors. I would highly recommend Luisa...very professional in all elements of her work.

Italian Lessons

If you want to learn Italian, there’s no other teacher. It all makes sense when she’s teaching you. And she has this really cute personality to add to the fun learning experience. If I could have given her 6 stars, I would have! Amazing Instructor

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer several special packages on my website, shown above. Do not hesitate to contact me directly on my website or through my Facebook page for any inquiry.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I usually define the objectives and aspirations of the learner in advance so I can tailor teaching methods and contents to the single student. After receiving the first message, I usually request a Skype meeting to discuss everything in detail face to face.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Japanese studies and a Master’s Degree from Ca' Foscari University of Venice which qualifies me as a trained instructor of Italian for foreigners. In spring 2019, I have completed an Italian language teaching internship at Old Dominion University, Virginia. I worked as a private language tutor for the past seven years in Italy, Japan, and the United States.
