I understand that every student has a required need. I will custom fit the lesson plan to revolve around your objectives. I incorporate all the multiple intelligences in helping you achieve your goal. My sole purpose is to guide you and direct you to achieve your personal best in Italian.

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

Great teacher/tutor

Lou is an enthusiastic, skillful teacher and tutor. His extensive knowledge of Italy and the Italian language make learning fun and interesting. With his help, we're ready for our trip to Umbria and Tuscany.

Knowledgeable and very patient tutor for an adult 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!!

Great tutor

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!!!!

Easy to contact and Enthusiastic!

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!

Easy and animated

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.

We love our tutor.

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.
