The Italian language is unlike any other in that most Italians do not speak "real" Italian. My ultimate goal as a tutor is not only to help students master the Italian language but also to speak true Italian - exceeding even the abilities of the majority of native Italian speakers. One of the most interesting aspects of my career was transposing the idiomatic expressions in other languages into Italian. I will teach my students how to convey the same message in Italian as they would in English without losing the underlying meaning and purpose. There is more to learning a language than simply having an extended vocabulary and good grammar skills - it is just as important to be able to truly express yourself.
In Italy I've been a voice over actor for over twenty years. I have an excellent aptitude towards languages including, but not limited to: tonality, musicality, vocal style, phraseology, and pronunciation. I specialize in the adaptation of the dialogue with expert ability to transpose any text, film or television program from any language, for an Italian audience, while maintaining the integrity of the original message.
