I am a 10 year Italian High School teacher. I have also taught College Level Italian for 7 years. I am an enthusiastic, energetic and motivated teacher. I have taught all levels in High School from Italian Basic through Italian Honors IV. On the college level I have taught topics such as Il Rinascimento to Il Risorgimento to Il Neorealismo.

I can tutor in your home or at a local library. I am flexible and can work with your schedule. Please see my blog. I have great tips for the motivated student learner.

I asked Lou to help me with the grammar and the "whys" of the language. I am learning by Rosetta Stone which does NOT explain any of the why you use a word in a certain way. Lou has been patient and I has answered all my questions. Looking forward to my visit to Italy with a better understanding of Italian!!
Lou is a wonderful teacher!! My son is a freshman and was having difficulty learning Italian. He wasn't enjoying learning it until we met Lou. Lou is easy to talk to and is very patient. He's creative and has experience in helping with memorization. If you are having trouble learning Italian this is the teacher you can trust. He is very good at his craft. My son is learning and enjoying his sessions and we still continue to see Lou. My son did well on his midterm exam and continues to challenge himself. Thanks Lou!!!!
We were in desperate need of finding a quick tutor for our freshman son to help with midterms. Lou was quick to respond and was able to tutor right away. He was very friendly, energetic, and very creative in his approach to teaching Italian. He was able to engage my son and taught him creative techniques to remember various concepts and phrases and really helped him to understand Italian much better. I plan to use Lou again in the future and would highly recommend him!
I feel that Lou understands what my needs are. I want the basic proficiency to be able to communicate on a daily basis on my annual trips to Italy. We have role played several practical scenarios such as dining, lodging, shopping etc.
He has an easy manner and is very knowledgeable about Italian from music to art. He also has a good grasp of common Italian colloquialisms that can be used. Finally, he is fun, smart, and very thorough with his explanations. I would recommend him highly.
Lou is just such a great teacher. He gives a good balance of making us figure it out and helping us get the "right" answer. Lots of genuine enthusiasm - really makes a difference.
My son has learned a lot of Italian without much difficulty. He is patient and helpful with my son. My son enjoys his lessons. I often hear them laughing. We look forward to a long relationship.
We would highly recommend Lou for Italian Tutoring, he is very patient, and has great ideas for memorizing Italian, we are very happy that we chose Lou to tutor our son.
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.
I have taught both High School and college level Italian for 10 years. I teach Basic to Honors in High School. I have taught Italian 1 and 2 on the college level. I studied Italian abroad while at university. My goal is to meet your needs whether it be for travel, school or business. I have been a private tutor for 5 years before my entry as a WyzAnt tutor.
