Greetings! I have tutored students of a wide range of abilities and backgrounds for many years, both in Europe and the United States. I am trilingual - Italian, French, English. Also, I have extensive experience in translation, editing, and proofreading. In addition to grammar, reading, writing and conversation, I can offer ample information about the culture, history and everyday life of the countries where these languages are spoken as I have lived in these countries for long periods of time. I take particular interest in the individual, personal needs of the student, I am able to detect weaknesses and find all possible ways to help the student to eliminate them.

If you are an adult and plan to travel to these countries on vacation or business, in addition to instructing you in the language, I can assist you with cross-cultural orientation and logistics as I have detailed knowledge of major European cities.

While I graduated in foreign languages, I enjoy tutoring students in SAT reading and writing. I am particularly strong in English grammar having used my background to develop courses in comparative grammar for continuing education schools.

I am comfortable with students of all age levels, grades or abilities and I like to assess their progress to adjust my instruction as needed. What matters most in my teaching is you, the student(s) and my ability to make your learning experience more desirable.

Approved subjects

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.

ESL/ESOL

No matter how difficult you may find learning English, I can help you to achieve your goal. I have taught English to foreigners in Europe for many years and in general, students were immensely helped by the fact that I could underline the differences between their native language and English, being myself multilingual.

Because of my experience, I can quickly understand why you are struggling to learn a given grammatical principle for instance, I can suggest tricks and techniques to remember phrasal verbs, idioms, vocabulary etc. and I never get tired to repeat and review.

French

I am strong in the area of verbs conjugations and can explain in simple words grammatical concepts that hardly find an equivalent translation in English. I maintain my fluency by traveling frequently to Paris where I completed my studies and lived for many years.

The best!! — I could not possibly give Giovanna a higher recommendation as a tutor. I am a Master of Art History student at Hunter College and came to Giovanna with the problem of preparing for my mid-program foreign language exam in Italian.
