“Maria is a thorough, enthusiastic teacher who excels at fostering an atmosphere of classroom camaraderie. I felt challenged and supported; the time flew! Loved it so much I took Italian 1 and 2, and have already registered for the Conversation class. ”

“I first met signora Conte several years ago in a Montessori school in Greater Boston where she was my daughter’s favorite teacher. Then, destiny wanted that years later our entire family reunite with Mrs. Conte again, but in a different setting. My daughter took Italian lessons with Prof. Conte and thanks to her fabulous teaching, she was accepted into the Italian program at her university. Subsequently, my daughter qualified for a scholarship and she spent a semester in Italy. My husband and I, both enrolled in Italian classes with Maria Conte as well so we could visit our daughter in Italy. We are all very grateful of her terrific teaching. Her books are straight forward, the grammar is clearly presented and is very easy to follow. Being able to communicate in Italian during our trip was a lot of fun. Prof. Maria has a warm welcoming personality, treats people with respect, and is highly dedicated to her students. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Prof. Conte.”

“I enjoyed learning how to crochet and knit in separate private sessions with Maria Conte. Maria is gifted with her so many talents and expertise as well as being extremely patient. No matter if you are a beginner, Maria guides you through the entire process to learn the techniques and complete beautiful and decorative projects for your home. I was surprised in how fast I could learn. I also found these lost arts to be very entertaining and therapeutic.”
