About Paolo

I recently immigrated to the US with my American wife. I have the equivalent of a Master's/Doctorate from an Italian university. I taught Latin, Italian, History, and Geography for over 30 years in the Italian public school system to students from 11-20 years of age. I also taught Italian, as a second language, to Italian immigrants in my country. In addition, I gave private lessons in various subjects for the past ten years in Italy. I am a patient and thorough teacher and would welcome students to attend lessons in my home. I would also be willing to come to you, if the distance is not too far.

The thing that I love the most about tutoring is working one-on-one with students. Progress is made quickly and it is very rewarding to experience the growth a student makes. While my American wife and daughter were living with me in Italy, I was able to teach both of them to become fluent in Italian. My step-daughter completed two years of public Italian high school and passed twelve subjects, each year. When she started the school year, she did not speak a word of Italian. I tutored her in all subjects (except Chemistry and Math).

I studied Latin for 10 years and Italian for 15 and taught both for over 30 years. I have also learned to speak English and French, so I know what it is like to learn a foreign language. I have a deep understanding of grammar and etymology as I studied, not only Latin, but ancient Greek as well.

I have been in the US for almost a year now and am ready to enter the work force. I miss teaching and am excited to work with new students in a new country!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

European History

I have a long experience teaching history in high school in Italy.

Italian

In my teaching career, I also taught, beside Italian and Latin, History and Geography. Also, I have always been interested in cultural, social, and political Italian events; so I think we could have many subjects to have conversations about. Also, I taught, as voluntary activity, in Italian classes for foreign people; so I know how to help not Italian speaking people.
