I have been teaching Italian since 1984 and successfully prepared travelers for their journeys in all aspects: language, history, geography, art, food, music, fashion.

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.
