Does anyone know an Italian speaker for an Italian immersion playgroup?

My daughter is part of an Italian language immersion playgroup (2-3 year olds) and we are urgently seeking a native Italian speaker to assist with the playgroup on Mondays and Tuesdays (and possibly Wednesdays) starting September or October. We are looking for someone who lives in the Berkeley, Albany, Emeryville or El Cerrito area and who has some experience working with young children -- playing games, music, art etc. The group consists of four other families and we are all raising our children bilingual (one parent in each family is Italian). We are looking to fill the position as soon as possible. If you are interested or know someone who might be who loves sharing their Italian language, this is a wonderful opportunity -- please contact me immediately!!

It may be worth contacting my Italian teacher. She teaches in Berkeley on Thursdays and Fridays and is just a delightful young woman. Her name is Sole Consoli and her email is soleconsoli [at] If you contact her, let her know that you got her name from me, please.

Good Luck. Buona Fortuna!


Google 'viola's notes'. She would be absolutely perfect for your group. This is exactly what she does. Good luck
