About Gabriel

As a high school student in Milan, I was invited to play soccer in the junior league of Internazionale Milano under coach Helenio Herrera. I came to the USA as an exchange student and started studying at Steven's Technical Institute before transferring to Kean University in Union, New Jersey to study Political Science and Psychology. My graduate work at Kean was in School Psychology.

Having worked as the Head of Security for Zim Container Ships, then later as an importer of Italian Maiolica prepared me to teach Italian to a most elite group of Americans: State Department employees at the Foreign Service Institute.
My teaching style is very flexible, one of my students learned Italian almost exclusively through Italian music lyrics.
When teaching young adults, I avail them of my Italian sense of humor and we laugh a lot.

My family is Florentine, yet since my father worked in shipping, I lived in many Italian cities. Therefore, I have a broad knowledge of the many faces of Italian language and culture.
I am a film buff; my favorite films are Italian, and I could teach a Italian Cinema course.

Try Italian!
My students enjoyed my classes so much that many are in contact with me years after our lessons ended!

Italian

I grew up in Italy; my mother's family is Florentine.
The Foreign Service Institute is the premiere language school of the USA State Department. I prepared many diplomats and members of the Armed Forces to represent the USA in Italy.
I also prepared American children for entrance into Italian public school.
I am an expert in Comparative Cultures between the United States and Italy. I am very well versed in political matters of both countries.
