About Lorenzo


Bio

Hello! My name is Lorenzo. I am Italian, and I grew up in Bergamo, a beautiful city one hour from Milan. I currently live in Michigan with my wife and two kids. I have experience teaching Italian language to adults, home school kids (middle school and high school students) as well as classes at the college level.

Whatever might be your case, if you are complete beginners who approach the language for the first time, or you have been studying Italian for a while but you feel like you are...

Hello! My name is Lorenzo. I am Italian, and I grew up in Bergamo, a beautiful city one hour from Milan. I currently live in Michigan with my wife and two kids. I have experience teaching Italian language to adults, home school kids (middle school and high school students) as well as classes at the college level.

Whatever might be your case, if you are complete beginners who approach the language for the first time, or you have been studying Italian for a while but you feel like you are not improving as much as you would like, or you are advanced students who just need some extra practice, I am your guy!

I got a BA and MA degree from the University of Milan, and an MA in Italian Studies from the University of Notre Dame, in South Bend, IN. After graduation, I moved to Bloomington, IN to teach Italian language at IU, and now I'm in Michigan.

So, if you are looking for an Italian tutor, I would be happy to help you! I love my country and Italian language, and I would be very excited to teach it to you! I strive to incorporate all the language skills (listening, reading, speaking and writing) in each of my lessons, with a special focus to the culture, but at the end of the day my goal is to adapt my lesson to your needs. One rule is consistent though: my lessons are student-centered, so don't expect a boring lecture on grammar: you will start practicing Italian since the very first day!

Very encouraging first lesson

He was very attentive to my goals. Very patient and encouraging. I believe we will help with my pronunciation and guide me through my difficulty with grammar. He already cleared up one of my long confusions about article genders.

Richard, 3 lessons with Lorenzo

Very Knowledgable and great teaching style!

Lorenzo teaches with mastery of the Italian Language as well as intuitive understanding of how to integrate not only complex grammar but expressing oneself authentically.

Massimo K, 1 lesson with Lorenzo

always gracious and excellent test prep

Lorenzo has been a great help to my son in AP Italian. My son’s grade is definitely going up and Lorenzo is always hitting the right language elements. He is also consistently flexible and gracious when we have to change dates or we run late. I highly recommend Lorenzo!

Patient and complete Italian language instruction

Anybody can learn Italian words but, in my opinion, they aren't useful until you know how to use them along with verbs (conjugated correctly) so that Italians actually know what you are saying, and so you don't offend anyone. I tried many free online "learn Italian by yourself" apps and always felt stuck with just having words. Now, I'm amazed at how I can make sentences that I didn't realize I could do. But with the Lorenzo's structured guidance, I'm doing it. Lorenzo is a very patient Italian language teacher. His detailed knowledge about sentence structure, grammar and regional language differences in Italy is very impressive.

Excellent conversation

Lorenzo does a great job at posing questions which lead to good (and challenging) conversations. I feel like I am making lots of progress. Every time we meet the conversation is different and always interesting.

A pleasure to study with

Lorenzo is great and I am happy to have him as a tutor. I have been trying to learn Italian using Duolingo, which is good, but I needed grammar lessons as well as help to be able to talk/ discuss. Lorenzo got it and the hour flies quickly and is very enjoyable. I learn a lot!

Great tutor

Lorenzo was really helpful, he is very detailed oriented and informative. He broke everything down and explained all content thoroughly.

Passionate, Professional, and Responsive Tutor

If you're looking for someone who'll keep you honest with your language learning, Lorenzo is your guy. He's quick to follow up with initial messages and offer availability and continues to respond to any requests in a timely fashion. Lorenzo kept my first lesson moving at an equally quick and comfortable pace, despite my sluggish participation. If I hadn't been so overtired from international travel, I may have taken him up on his offer to continue for a second hour. As an added bonus, he's quite experienced with Sentieri, which is frequently used in Italian courses. He's obviously not just an Italian speaker but also very knowledgeable about the grammar and mechanics of the language and how to best teach it. I highly recommend scheduling a session with Lorenzo (just not at the times I want). 😅

fantastic tutor, patient and good at explaining things

I met with Lorenzo for 60 minutes to improve my Italian conversation skills. He was able to understand me even when I made lots of mistakes (and sometimes used Spanish) and gently corrected me. The conversation was interesting and fun and I learned a lot! Looking forward to more lessons.
