Hi students and parents,
This is Donatello, like the ninja turtle or better, the artist. I am Italian, born in Como and raised between Ancona and Pescara (center of Italy, other side of Florence and Rome).
I moved to the US 7 years ago to study Neuroscience at Columbia University.
I used to tutor and teach Italian to different people, both in classes and individually ranging in different ages before I got my PH.d while studying in New York.
Then two years ago I moved in California to work at UCLA and now that I am settled I want to go back to teach and tutor Italian since it is a lot of fun for me.
I put a lot of effort to the the learning of speaking, listening, reading and writing skills but what I like most is the conversation.
If you are planning to go to Italy and you what to sound Italian at least when you order a coffee or buy something, I am your man. In my method I put particular attention to the pronunciation.
Please, contact me through WyzAnt.
Cordiali saluti( let`s start even before starting with the first Italian expression for best regards),
