Evie, Italian Peer Tutor

Ciao! I am a third year student majoring in Psychology with a Minor in Italian. I also work part- time for the College of Social Work here at UIC. I believe that language learning helps in so many aspects of life, primarily communication skills. I want to help other students to reach their goals in learning Italian, and share my passion for Italian culture and language. I chose Italian because I think it is a beautiful language. I really enjoyed learning Italian, the professors I had here at UIC made it a great experience. One of my goals as a peer tutor is to make learning Italian a fun and rewarding experience for other students!

Angela, Italian Peer Tutor

I am a Biology major with an Italian minor. There is a connection between Biology and Italian – lots of Italian scientists paved the way in their fields, and there are some species whose names are derived from the Italian language. I look forward to sharing my passion for the Italian language with my peers.

“I have a minor in both Spanish and Italian so I understand very well the struggles that come along with learning additional languages. I want to help my fellow Italian students overcome the same problems I’ve faced.”

Claudia, Italian Peer Tutor

Ciao a tutti! I’m tutoring Italian because I truly love the culture and I would love to share that love and passion with all of you. I transferred to UIC from City Colleges and I’m majoring in Biological Science with a minor in Italian, and on a pre-med track. I am Ecuadorian-Italian, and I grew up in Italy. I’m currently trilingual and taking French, so I speak four languages. I’m always excited to learn new languages and hope to learn many more in the future. I know it can be difficult to learn a new language – when I moved to the US, I knew very few words of English and I was so afraid to speak to others because I didn’t know the language. My advice: Be patient and persistent! We all struggle, but that’s the beauty of learning.

Ciao everyone!! I am a first-generation college student studying Applied Psychology with an Italian minor. I also work part-time at the Student Recreation Facility and spend some time playing music at my UIC radio show called the Jukebox!! I am Guatemalan-American, and I come from a family of five. I am trilingual: I speak Spanish, English, and Italian and I am learning Chinese!! As a peer tutor I wish to share my passion for Italian, build trust among all students and make learning Italian fun and easier!

Lainey, Italian Peer Tutor

Hello! I am a Spanish major with an Italian minor in my third year at UIC. I am the first person in my family to attend college, so I understand it can be difficult trying to figure things out on your own. I understand that new languages do not come easily to everyone, so I hope that by participating in peer tutoring, I can brush up on my own language skills as well as help you to expand yours! I have attended tutoring before myself and I want to provide a friendly face for other students who are looking for a different perspective on their coursework than what might be provided in the classroom. I look forward to seeing you in an online session!

I am working toward a Neuroscience major and an Italian minor. I have always been interested in learning about different cultures and languages. I hope to share the experience of learning Italian language and culture with my peers in Italian BLP classes.”

“I am a junior here at UIC, majoring in biological sciences, minoring in Italian, and on the pre-dental track. I also speak Ukrainian, Russian, and Polish. I am part of the Pre-Dental Club at UIC and ambassador at UIC’s College of Dentistry. I started learning Italian in high school and it has been an amazing journey. I love meeting new people and learning about different cultures. I am very excited to be a peer tutor and share my tips and my own passion for learning a new language.”

Teodora, Italian Peer Tutor

“Being a native speaker of another romance language, I realized that while Italian grammar and language structure come rather easy to me, this might not be the case for some of my peers. Therefore, I feel that I can provide support and additional help for UIC Italian students.”

Valentina, Italian Peer Tutor

“Coming to the United States I noticed a lot of my peers struggling with finding the best approach when it comes to learning a foreign language and I am happy to have the opportunity to show UIC students some different techniques and approaches to mastering Italian.”

Yuli, Italian Peer Tutor

Ciao a tutti! I am a fourth-year student and an English Major with a Concentration in Professional Writing and Publishing and a triple Minor in Russian Studies, Italian Studies, and Political Science. I am fluent in English, Spanish, and Italian. I am incredibly enthusiastic about language-learning because it has been an essential part of my life for as long as I can remember—although it was once borne out of necessity, it has long since flourished into a personal and professional ambition that knows no bounds. I am beyond delighted and committed to help other students navigate the journey of learning Italian. Cominciamo!
