I am a native Italian from Milan living in NYC where I am pursuing my acting and Italian language teaching careers. I have been tutoring Italian for more than 10 years and have logged over 13,000 tutoring hours. My goal is to assist students with the development and perfection of their Italian language skills. I am well versed in Italian culture , literature , architecture and the arts offering a well rounded approach to learning la bella lingua;

I would love to give all students the opportunity to develop and perfect their Italian.
My method is a very successful combination of grammar, conversation, cultural tips, history, pronunciation, homework and fun. Since I am a trained actor with no regional accent, my students benefit from hearing perfectly pronounced Italian during our sessions. I also create weekly personalized audio lessons for them together with written study guides in PDF format. In this way, students achieve their specific language goals in the shortest possible time.

I also have a successful international track record in translation and 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?

great teacher

His method makes it very easy to dive in . Also I like how he bridges language with culture and history . You really understand the big picture .

Charming, Engaging Conversation

I enjoyed speaking with Michael very much. He spoke about interesting history of the Italian language (in Italian) I hadn’t known, a particular highlight for me. In addition, his written follow-up lesson added educational value to our live discussion.
