Bio

Hello everyone! I am a native Italian from Milan, living in NYC because of my acting and Italian teaching career, and I would love to give all students studying Italian a hand to develop and perfect their proficiency. I also have extensive experience in pre-exam preparation for high-school and university students, supporting the syllabus followed in their classes. I am available to work in person and/or via Skype if the commute to or from NYC is problematic. I have found great success in...

Hello everyone! I am a native Italian from Milan, living in NYC because of my acting and Italian teaching career, and I would love to give all students studying Italian a hand to develop and perfect their proficiency. I also have extensive experience in pre-exam preparation for high-school and university students, supporting the syllabus followed in their classes. I am available to work in person and/or via Skype if the commute to or from NYC is problematic. I have found great success in teaching via Skype and it is something I do regularly with a number of my students wherever they are located in the world. Whether you are interested in conversation exchange or clarification of grammar and structure, I make sure the process is warm, fun and lively! In addition to Italian being my mother tongue, my formal education in liberal arts and letters in Italy has given me a level of proficiency and sophistication with the language that very few teachers have. I am a very patient teacher and I like to make lessons entertaining and fun! This is how we learn best: when we are enjoying ourselves-- and what's not to enjoy with something as poetic, musical, and passionate as Italian? It would be an honor to help you perfect your listening/speaking skills so hopefully you can go visit Italy one day and truly experience the heart and depth of the culture by being able to communicate fully with Italians.
A presto!
Michel

Smart, fun and enthusiastic

Michel is a delight to work with. He is encouraging and helpful and pushes one on to the next level. If you want to laugh, learn and speak in Italian then Michel is the tutor you are looking for.

Robin, 4 lessons with Michel

The best!

Michel is so enthusiastic, so kind, so fun, so passionate and so thorough. What a fantastic way to learn - from such a dedicated and sparkling teacher! My son is a tenor and is learning Italian in order to both sing arias but also because the beautiful, expressive and lyrical Italian language teaches him how to better sing. Michel is perfect for this in all ways! Bravissimo!!!

Robin, 9 lessons with Michel

Amazing tutor

Michael is a truly incredible teacher! His natural ability to pinpoint exactly what each student needs/understands to fully grasp the subject is truly impressive. Learning a foreign language is daunting, but Michael makes learning easy and more importantly fun!

Courtney, 1 lesson with Michel

Amazing at what he does!

I’ve had 3 lessons with Michel so far and I’ve found his lessons to be enjoyable and valuable. He makes learning Italian fun and he makes sure to review everything so you understand it. He’s also very patient! Looking forward to continuing my lessons with him.

Great Lesson as Always

Michel teaches through conversation. He always suggests an interesting topic. He corrects grammar and vocabulary in subtle ways that don’t interrupt or discourage.

Michael has an amazing personality and his teaching style is impressive. My lesson with him was easy and fun. In an hour we accomplished plenty to start to speak Italian. We are very happy to had him as our tutor and looking forward to next lesson with him.

Great Tutor

I am having a great time learning Italian from Michel! I have had trouble with languages in the past but it is going really well with Michel. He is really helping me to prepare for my trip to Italy later this summer.
