Italian Tutor
updated: Feb 12, 2014, 12:00 PM

I'm hoping the Edhat community could refer a native Italian speaking tutor for kids. We live/work in the Santa Barbara/Santa Ynez area and either location or nearby would be fine. Our 5 year old already speaks Italian and we'd like her to continue learning.

Thank you for your advice.

Call Mario Roppo, 966-2899. Native Italian speaker, he taught Italian in Los Angeles schools. If he is entirely retired, he may at least know someone who speaks Italian well. It is rare to find upper class Italian speakers.

There are alot of Italian connections in Santa Barbara. There are Italian 'meetups', two very good Italian clubs: Il Circolo Italiano (Gabriella Schooley at gschooley@verizon.net) and Italian American Boot Club. CIty College has some great Italian Teachers and so does Adult Ed through City College. I had a wonderful Italian Teacher who lives in Santa Ynez. She also does private tutoring. If you would like to send me ( mcristi31@gmail.com) some details I can try to connect with her again.

Talk to Adut Ed teachers. I know my teacher from a few years ago has taught children and gotten them to do that specific "G" sound. She was from Italy and returns to visit family. If you call the owners of Olio e Lemone, they can tell you.
