NATIVE ITALIAN PROFESSOR with great experience
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.

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.
Can't Say Enough Good Things about Michel. He's a Terrific Italian Tutor in Every Way!
I had the good fortune to have Michel tutor me several times a week for three months before a recent trip to Italy. He has a sparkling personality that made each lesson fun and motivating. His knowledge and appreciation of the language and culture, as well as his enthusiasm, patience, and good humor all make him a terrific teacher. I had attempted to learn the basics of Italian several times before over the years, and was gratified at the amount of progress I made as a result of my time with Michel. He really knows what he is doing. I could not imagine a better, more simpatico instructor.Mark, 221 lessons with Michel
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.Joe, 21 lessons with Michel

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.Svetlana , 56 lessons with Michel

Unbelievable Italian Tutor
Unbelievable! I did not believe but every lesson was more interesting than last lesson. I like to study with Michel. He is a professor of philosophy and language. Incredibile! non sono creduto che ogni lezione erano più interessante della scorsa lezione. Mi piaccio studiare con Michel. Lui è un professore di filosofia e lingua.Robert, 10 lessons with Michel
