Hello,

I am an Italian, who has studied formally in the United States and Italy. I speak English and Italian with native fluency, and have studied Italian literature and grammar for over 10 years. I have a passion for the language and have an extensive background in Italian poetry and prose that spans the Big Three of modern Italian narration: Dante, Petrarca and Boccaccio. I have a master's in 20th Century Italian Literature from Middlebury College and a B.A in Italian and Philosophy from Queens College. I also have knowledge of Italian linguistics, the evolution of Italian from Latin to vernacular, as well as modern Italian. I have worked the past 6 years as an Italian Adjunct in various Colleges and Italian Programs, in the NY Area, and as a private Tutor.

Italian

Italian, essentially, is a huge part of my life, personally, scholastically, and professionally. I have over ten years of Italian Studies. My Knowledge of the subject is various, and ranges from: Grammar and Composition, Italian Linguistics, and finally Italian Literature, Film, History, and popular culture. The key to mastering any language is through total immersion. It is something that fuels my passion for this subject, and makes the subject salient and relevant to daily life. It is a crucial factor in any language acquisition.

Great! — Angelo is a great tutor! My son has improved tremendously in Italian 2. He is a sophomore in High School and he was struggling before Angelo started tutoring him twice a week. Now, my son is confident, and enjoys speaking, reading and comprehending the Italian language! For as long as my son is taking Italian in High School, Angelo will continue to be my son's tutor! Thanks Angelo!!! ...
