About Eugenio


Bio

I am Eugenio, born and raised in Brescia, Italy and living in Philadelphia for almost 7 years now. I am a very easy-going guy that loves to cook (Italian food, obviously) and travelling. I learned English in middle school and high school in Italy but I did not have the chance to practice it that much until I moved to the States. Once here, I realized that the English I had learnt (mostly from non-native English speakers) needed to be improved upon and decided to take some tutoring lessons...

I am Eugenio, born and raised in Brescia, Italy and living in Philadelphia for almost 7 years now. I am a very easy-going guy that loves to cook (Italian food, obviously) and travelling. I learned English in middle school and high school in Italy but I did not have the chance to practice it that much until I moved to the States. Once here, I realized that the English I had learnt (mostly from non-native English speakers) needed to be improved upon and decided to take some tutoring lessons from native English speakers. That is how I got introduced to the tutoring business. The last couple of years have been full of learning new things and also, re-learning what I thought I had learnt in the past. Also, these last couple of years I have appreciated the importance of learning a language from native speakers. So here is when my sales pitch comes: I am a native Italian speaker and I think I can help you practice and improve your Italian.

Since I am just starting to provide tutoring lessons, my teaching approach consists in conversing with the student on a previously agreed-upon topic. We would when review new vocabulary and pronunciation as well as salient grammar structures introduced in the conversation. The lesson can also be based on a written article from an Italian book/magazine/newspaper or a recording. I believe that students enhance their chances of learning another language by practicing their language skills on topics in which they are interested in; thus, the student is free to select the topic of the conversation or article to be discussed in the class.

I do not have a background in linguistics (actually, I come from the opposite side of the spectrum: I studied accounting and worked in sales for around 20 years), however, I have practical experience learning languages (in addition to English, I speak Spanish) that I believe can be transferred to my students. Italian is an incredibly fun language. Give me the chance to help you get better at it!

Intuitive, patience and well organized attitude. My first

Cooking

My passion for cooking was always there. I grow up in a beautiful city called Brescia. It’s located in the middle of the Region of Lombardy. Because of the temperate weather that is typical for a city placed between 2 lakes and the 4 seasons, we produce our famous sparkling wine and extra virgin olive oil. I would love to teach you all the secrets of an Italian fresh meal.

Italian Class

Eugenio is very patient. The lesson didn’t even feel like an hr long. I recommend him. This was my first lesson. I’m planning to take more classes in the future.

Valentina, 2 lessons with Eugenio

Productive conversational class

The lesson with Eugenio was a good way to brush up on my Italian. He was patient and since Italian is his native language, knowledgeable too and gave me guidance on some grammar aspects. It was a good way for me to gain insight on what I need to focus on in order to improve.
