About Richard

Growing up with two Italian immigrant parents offered me an environment with different languages and cultures. This sparked my interest to continue studying Italian from a young age. Throughout my studies, I perfected knowledge of Italian grammar and pronunciation and earned a Minor in Italian from Penn State University.

While there, I tutored young and adult students in Italian and found it to be a very rewarding experience for both the student and myself. My inherent desire to always be of help and assistance to others was put to use through tutoring and I would like to continue doing this type of work throughout my life. I am confident in my knowledge and abilities to not only help you take steps towards mastering the language, but also to help share my passion for the language and culture.

I like my tutoring sessions to be informal and conversational. You will be doing most of the talking and, with my guidance, will come to realizations on your own. I have found this method to be the most useful and satisfying for students. Of course, I am willing to adjust my tutoring style to fit your need as best we see fit. I like using the "Parliamo Italiano" textbook by Wiley Publishers for exercises, but I will use the book as supplemental material if you bring a different textbook you are comfortable with or any other class exercises and worksheets.

Italian is a beautiful language, and I am excited to help you succeed! I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Italian

I earned an Italian Minor from The Pennsylvania State University in May 2014. I completed 18 credits in both language and culture courses to fulfill my requirements. Also, I had one year experience tutoring Italian in my final year at Penn State. I was granted this position at the recommendation of professors and the head of the Italian Department. Prior to beginning my tutoring, I took a voluntary 8-week course through Penn State on tutoring methods to prepare me for student concerns and best practices.
