I am a native Italian. I live in NYC because of my acting and Italian teaching career, and I would love to give any Italian students a hand in perfecting their proficiency. I also have extensive experience in pre-exam preparation for high-school and university students, supporting the syllabus being followed in their classroom settings. I am also available to work via Skype if the commute to or from NYC is problematic, and is something I do regularly, with great success, with a number of my students who I work with, wherever in the world they are. Whether conversation exchange or clarification of grammar and structure, I make sure the process is warm, fun and lively! Besides it being my mother tongue, my formal liberal arts and letters education in Italy has given me a level of proficiency and sophistication with the language that very few have. That is how we learn best: when we are also enjoying ourselves, and what's not to enjoy with something as poetic, musical, and passionate as Italian? It would be an honor to patiently help you perfect your listening/speaking skills so hopefully you can go visit Italy one day and truly experience the heart and depth of the culture by being able to communicate fully.
