About Joseph

I have a lot of experience tutoring and teaching languages. I studied Italian language and literature in undergrad at Fordham University. After graduating from Fordham and before leaving for graduate school in Arizona, I was a substitute teacher in Italian and Spanish so I have had the experience of teaching a foreign language to students. In addition, I have tutored a number of high school students in Italian. I have a passion for teaching foreign languages because I believe that we broaden our knowledge of our own language and vocabulary and we have a better understanding of different cultures around the world. Communication is key to understanding and acceptance in my view. My entire career has been in International Marketing so exposure to so many different cultures have made me a global citizen and a great people person.

I've lived and worked in Italy for five years and I visit Italy regularly. Colleagues in Italy prefer to speak to me in Italian rather than English because of my command of the language. Italians themselves say I know the language better than some Italians. I was born and educated in the U.S., and while English is my native language, my Italian accent is exceptional. As a matter of fact, working in Florence one summer, people thought I came from the north of Italy. I can make learning Italian fun and easy and I know and have visited almost the entire country. So ask me anything about Italy's topography, monuments, tourist sites, and chances are, I probably visited it.

Learning Italian has really helped me to be very proficient in Spanish, Portuguese and French as well. I've given several Italian lessons at the office and I still get requests from colleagues to start them up again because f my enthusiasm teaching the language. They say I have an ability to explain difficult and complex grammar simply, thoroughly and clearly.
