I provide professional customized tutoring with guaranteed results to kids and adults (Age 14 - adult). I use a creative and effective approach working with the student to pinpoint exactly how to master the subject. I was born in Italy and moved to the States 15 years ago. I have a degree in Italian history and culture (Pisa University ITALY), a Master's Degree in Project Management (George Washington University) and a B.A. in Electrical Engineering (Istituto Tecnico Industiale A. Righi ITALY). I have been teaching Italian for many years to students of different ages and for various scopes, such as: to get students up to speed in order to spend a university semester in Italy, to introduce middle and high school kids to a new language, to get up to speed adults who want to gain a comfortable knowledge when they travel in Italy or to university students who want to become proficient in order to attend an Italian university. I teach Italian also at the Technical College & Community Education on a yearly basis. I provide professional customized tutoring with guaranteed results to kids and adults (Age 14 - adult).

I'm only just starting off with the first several Online Italian lessons with Carlo, but I am very very satisfied with his teaching methods, patience, knowledge, and the overall lessons. I had tried several other tutors who either weren't knowledgeable enough about the language or who weren't paying attention to my pace, and therefore I felt like I was paying for lessons covering topics I already knew, which was wasteful. I have not felt at ALL that any time with Carlo has been wasted. If he sees I need practice on a subject, we practice, or he gives me exercises I can do on my own so that we don't waste valuable lesson time being redundant. If he notices I am already comfortable with a topic, he will test me just to be sure, and then move on so that I am always covering new information (but not being overwhelmed - he always asks to make sure I am comfortable with the topics and following his explanations). He also puts real-life situations into perspective for me so I know how to properly use the language as native Italians would. I look forward to the next lesson after we finish each one, and I enjoy the lessons very much. I highly recommend contacting Carlo if you are looking for a tutor.
Carlo, in addition to being patient, has adapted the book and amount of material to meet my level of speaking and understanding Italian. It has been so helpful to skip what I know and learn new things. He's flexible and knows that I will be in Sicily in two months and must get passable Italian, not perfect Italian. I hope to take up with the lessons again when I return.
Update: Again, Carlo is tailoring as we go along when he realizes what I know and don't know during each lesson. He wants to give me the most basic building tools before I head to Sicily.

Carlo is a wonderful tutor. He's very personable and easy to follow in Italian. I am planning a trip to Italy, and wanted to learn basic traveler's Italian. I know Spanish and French, although it's been a long time since I used them. Carlo created personalized lessons for me based on my background and taught me exactly what I needed. He was patient and helpful and even gave me tips on what to do and see in Italy! I highly recommend Carlo.
Carlo is an excellent teacher. Patient but precise, he makes sure that wrong little habits don't creep in as one learns. He has been good about tweaking the lesson format to fit my style of learning and to address my weak points (I am an adult learner determined to learn Italian to fluency). As a native Italian speaker, he knows the nuances of the language, Italian culture and puts things into context. Very highly recommended.
Carlo B. is a fantastic tutor for my daughter. His knowledge of Italian is superior and the lessons are well planned. He knows how to motivate the student and is very friendly. He does speak a little fast at times and has an Italian accent -- but that shows he is a native speaker of Italian. I would highly recommend Carlo B. as a tutor.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a deep knowledge of English grammar and formal writing and linguistic knowledge contrasting English and Italian.
