About Steve

Experienced, professional Spanish and Italian tutor will show you the techniques necessary to improve your speaking and comprehension ability while at the same time offering you real life, practical scenarios to give you the tools you need to function in your desired language. Happy to teach children or adults. I focus on developing strong verbal skills enabling students to express themselves in the target language with confidence.

My experience in both Spanish and Italian is extensive, having lived in both Spain and Italy. Additionally, I tutored Spanish students in English at the beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. I travelled extensively throughout Latin America for work on assignments that required professional level speaking, lecturing and writing in Spanish. I also have conducted several work-related presentations in Italian before police officials. US/Italian dual citizenship.

I am flexible in scheduling tutoring sessions and I can accommodate morning, afternoon and early evening classes. I enjoy helping students gain the level of proficiency and comprehension ability in their target language that will enhance their personal and professional relationships.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Italian

I have lived and worked in Rome, Italy, and have frequent business in Italy. I'm an Italian national.

Public Speaking

As a former executive manager with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, I frequently presented briefings on criminal trends and homeland security matters to state and local police chiefs and their staffs. In addition, I frequently provided security briefings to hotel and hospitality industry staff as well as to airport safety and security personnel. Currently, I provide briefings on intellectual property rights and data security to travel sector groups.

Spanish

I am a life long Spanish speaker and experienced Spanish teacher who lived and studied for years in Spain and in Latin America. I am experienced at instructing to all levels and age groups in Spanish and i concentrate on facilitating student conversational skills and interactions.
