Hello,

I have a passion for the language and have an extensive background in Italian poetry and prose that spans the Big Three of modern Italian narration: Dante, Petrarca and Boccaccio. I have a master's in 20th Century Italian Literature from Middlebury College and a B.A in Italian and Philosophy from Queens College. I also have knowledge of Italian linguistics, the evolution of Italian from Latin to vernacular, as well as modern Italian. I have worked the past 6 years as an Italian Adjunct in various Colleges and Italian Programs, in the NY Area, and as a private Tutor.

Italian

Italian

Italian, essentially, is a huge part of my life, personally, scholastically, and professionally. I have over ten years of Italian Studies. My Knowledge of the subject is various, and ranges from: Grammar and Composition, Italian Linguistics, and finally Italian Literature, Film, History, and popular culture. The key to mastering any language is through total immersion. It is something that fuels my passion for this subject, and makes the subject salient and relevant to daily life. It is a crucial factor in any language acquisition.

History

Philosophy

Philosophy

Philosophy is the foundation of all knowledge---it has been the driving force in all that I have sought to achieve through learning and perfecting my skills as a teacher, poet and general thinker. It is what keeps my mind fresh and it is what makes learning the joy that it is. I would say that I subscribe to the Aristotelian mode of thinking: I am well studied in the Poetics, (in Italian and English) I also have a familiarity with The Ethics of Benedict Spinoza, and Giordano Bruno's City of the Sun. My qualifications span the pre-Socratic Philosophers, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle to the Medieval Period, St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, Boethius, and the Modern Philosophers in terms of empiricism e.g. Descartes, David Hume, Immanuel Kant.

Great tutor!

I very much enjoyed my tutoring sessions with Angelo. His knowledge of Italian is excellent! Highly recommend him as a tutor.

Great tutor!

Angelo is a great tutor and was a great help to me. I had a base of the language and he was able to really help. Very patient. You won't be disappointed!

David, 5 lessons with Angelo

An Excellent Instructor

Angelo is knowledgeable and professional. His lessons are well structured and thorough. The time with him seems to fly by and leave me looking forward to our next meeting. And I should add that he is very personable as well. It is a pleasure to recommend him very highly. He has certainly advanced my Italian language skills.

Very Happy with Angelo!

I hired Angelo in early May of 2014 and he has been a wonderful addition to my daughter's pursuit of the Italian language. She has been in Italian immersion since kindergarten but as the program ends in 5th grade, I wanted to see what her skills were before she enters 6th grade this fall (as I myself do not speak Italian). The program will not continue as immersion in 6th grade, it will focus more on grammar and vocabulary. Through all of this, conversation has been the the laggard. Most people wonder why after so many years my daughter doesn't simply look at them and begin speaking Italian. But Angelo assured me that the immersion did its job and laid a good foundation for the next step and that conversation comes quite a bit later. It's been an unusual program also in that although my daughter is in a public school, she has had the same teacher for three years. She's not exactly comfortable listening to anyone other than her teacher speak to her in Italian. She even seems shy when it comes to speaking the language herself outside of her classroom. After just a couple of sessions, you can see that my daughter is already very comfortable with Angelo. She is actually getting less shy about speaking the language and getting more and more confident about it. I know it's been fun for her too and she has come to look forward to his sessions! Angelo is always prompt, communicative, respectful, and amiable. I'm very happy with my choice of Angelo and would definitely recommend him! I'm also hoping to hire him for next year's school year.

Great Tutor

Angelo takes the time to figure out what you are trying to accomplish. For example, I wanted to know "tourist Italian". He has helped me with that and also adds his personal experiences when I ask about certain aspects of Italian life and culture.
