My name is Tania Pietracatella. I was born in Perth, Western Australia. My parents are Italian immigrants who owned very successful Italian restaurants in Perth while I was growing up. At the age of 12 I took my first flight to Italy to visit family. Since that trip I began returning every year. I have a profound love for my Italian heritage and culture. I married and lived in Italy before returning to Perth and having children. We continue to take our children each year to visit our family.
In 2006 I completed my Certificate of Italian Teaching Methodology at the University of Notre Dame. I have also completed further Advanced Italian language units at the UWA, and completed a Diploma in Applied Language Studies at Central TAFE. 
On receiving a scholarship I was able to study at the Universita` Per Stranieri in Perugia, Italy.
I have a TRWBA full teacher registration and a working with children check.
I have been teaching Italian since 2002 in various primary schools and also private tutoring. Whilst living in Italy I taught english.

Classes at The Little Italian School are of no more than 12 students. Small classes leave less time for wasting and more time for learning. I am a very dedicated teacher with a very good reputation. Teaching the Italian language and culture is what I love to do... with all of my heart!


The beautiful contemporary Italian farmhouse style surroundings will make you feel just like you're in Italy. I take great pride and joy in teaching the Italian language and culture and my classes are always well prepared, organised, fun and engaging. Being owner operated, I am able to keep the course costs at a very affordable price. Small classes leave less time for wasting and more time for learning!
