I utilize teaching methods based on modern communicative and situational language needs and tailor online and in-person learning sessions according to students’ needs, planning lessons so they combine practice and input.
My in-depth knowledge of Italian grammar allows me to clearly explain grammar structures in order to enable learners to improve the four macro skills (listening, reading, speaking, writing) while gaining knowledge of Italy, its culture, and history.
My passion for Italian art, literature, and food allows me to enrich my lessons with authentic details from Italian culture.

Sorrento in November 2019.
She is kind understanding and very professional I intend to work with her for the next 3 years.
Thank you for taking me on as one of your clients
From day one she has been eager to focus on what I want to learn and need to work on. She has done so by customizing her lessons and methods to which she explains things to ensure concepts are clear.
Caterina has taught me the essentials as well as aspects of the Italian language which can often get overlooked. She is a native speaker and strives to have you writing and speaking like one as well by immersing you with authentic audios and books.
All in all she is professional, has a welcoming personality and is very patient and always replies very quickly to emails or questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has a desire to learn all aspects of the Italian language, culture and spirit.
