Nadia B.

New York, NY

Italian is my passion, and I am skilled in sharing the details and intricacies of Italian with you so that you can speak easily, communicate well and understand with ease. I am a summa cum laude graduate from New York University, with a double degree in Italian Language and Literature and Classical Music Performance. I also lived in Italy, which provided me with direct experience of the culture and language as it is used on a daily basis by native speakers.

I focus on strengthening the basics, increasing comprehension, vocabulary and speaking skills and developing a strong sense of Italian grammar.

My lessons are based around your needs and interests in Italian.

Hello! As a native Italian speaker, I've lived in Florence my entire life until I recently moved to New York. I've been tutoring for 5 years and have many long-term students. I attend the University of Florence for languages and linguistics, specializing in Italian and English. Also, I have worked for a translation company and continue to translate Italian and English works.
I'm very excited to help all levels of Italian students and can also provide specialized cultural-inclusive lessons!

I have been taking Italian lessons with Giulio for several months and have had a consistently great experience. Initially Giulio got an understanding of my level in Italian and what I wanted to achieve. As a result, all of the lessons I have met my expectations. Giulio is very patient, which is helpful because I make a ton of mistakes. It is also great that he is so outgoing – that really helps my listening comprehension.
