MONICA CAZZAMANI BONA
Italian Tutor & Founder
This is my Italian story…
I was born in autumn just after the harvest of Nebbiolo, 31 years ago in a tiny village in Piedmont called Govone. I grew up in my grandparents’ grocery store and with them I learned the beautiful art of hospitality, smiling and being kind with all the customers, all of whom we knew by name.
I studied Architecture at the Polytechnic of Turin, where I lived for 6 years and I graduated in 2011 with a thesis on energy sustainable buildings.
BUT If you grow up between the Langhe & Roero hills, food, wine, beautiful landscapes and hospitality become part of your soul and it’s hard to stay far away from them, in front of a computer, even if your office is in one of the most iconic buildings in Turin.
After many experiences in different fields between architecture, hospitality and events managing I finally discovered that my path in life was to share all that I know about my beloved country, its infinite culture and its romantic language.
This is why, in 2018, I founded Su Misura Italy! I now offer tailored Italian classes in private and small group settings, as well as workshops and events in Victoria and Piemonte.
My method, your method
I worked as an Italian Tutor in San Sebastian, Perth, Melbourne & now in the Mornington Peninsula. I have helped more than 100 people to learn Italian in a “non traditional” way. Customized material & lots of practical conversation is what I think makes my service different from a traditional class environment. Usually I start with a free phone chat where I will ask you few questions about you (we are all different and we all learn in a different way).
Every class will be tailored to you. No expensive books are required as the material will be sent to you or printed before the lesson. We can have classes at my studio, walking around the art gallery, the city or anywhere you like. I love to make my clients practice their language in practical situations. So I will use creativity to make sure that you’ll never get bored.
