About Anthony

Buongiorno,
I am an Italian-American, born and breed in the Bay Area. My father's great-great grandfather, a Sicilian, came to Ellis Island in 1893. When I was a teenager, I only knew a handful of words, all through my father's occasional teaching. I hired a tutor while in high school and taught myself Italian, going on to get a BA and MA in the language. In 2001 I also lived in Siena and Rome for the summer. For 2 years I taught Italian language and culture courses at the University of Connecticut. Then for about 3 years I taught at Alameda Adult School. Over the years I have taught Italian privately. For the past 2 years I have had several dedicated students, and we meet 1 to 4 times a month. My approach is friendly, positive, and encouraging. I taught myself the language, so I know how difficult it is to acquire. Patience is my motto.

I look forward to helping you master one of the world's most beautiful languages.

Antonio

Inspiring and Motivating Teacher

Anthony began by assessing my knowledge of Italian and determining how best to help me reach my goals. I have taken Italian lessons intermittently over several years, but I am decidedly out of practice. Anthony balanced review of basics with engaging me in simple conversations, which were supported by vocabulary review. Anthony provided just the jump start I needed to recommence my study of conve
