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.

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

Michel is an incredibly talented and competent linguist

He goes out of his way to personalize his instruction and follow up lessons. And clearly he is passionate about teaching and making sure that his students are progressing towards becoming proficient and elegant speakers in the full range of the (Italian) language.

Fantastic tutor with a wonderful personality

Michel is the most amazing tutor - dynamic, perceptive, entertaining and personal. All the lessons and homework assignments are personalized and narrowly tailored to my needs. The lessons fly by in one second. Michel is very easy to learn from - almost as if talking to a friend. I highly recommend him.

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.

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!!!

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, 6 lessons 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.
