Giulio G.

New York, NY

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!

Giulio is a great and patient teacher/tutor. He teaches both 'by the book' Italian and conversational Italian, like what you should say and when its appropriate, very important! Its great to work with him.

I cannot speak highly enough of Giulio. In my Italian 1 class, I was extremely confused and felt like I was falling behind. I found Giulio to help with Italian 2, and left the class with an A! I feel like my Italian skills have progressed a lot with just one semester, and Giulio is still tutoring me through the rest of my classes.

Viva Italia! Viva italiano! What a fascinating language! There are so many reasons to study Italian. I would love to teach you this "lingua romanza". Are you planning a trip to Italy? Do you have an Italian language exam coming up? Do you enjoy opera? Do you want to be able to order from an Italian menu? Do you know some Italian already but have no opportunity to practice conversation? Are you of Italian descent and want your children to approach the language? I would love to be your teacher!
I lived in Italy practically all my life. I moved there when I was a child. I was immersed in the Italian language and culture throughout the various stages of my life such as high school, college, family and work. I was right in the heart of the Italian Renaissance, the beautiful city of FLORENCE. I earned my college degree at the University of Florence, Italy and my teaching experience goes back to 2002 when I held Italian language classes for Eastern European exchange students.

When I had the first lesson with Beatrice I immediately realized she was a great teacher. The lesson was full of different activities: conversation, listening, grammar, writing.. with just the right amount of fun!
Beatrice is professional and nice. She speaks both English and Italian so well that it's hard to say if she is American or Italian!
I have been studying with her for a year in Italy and now we are doing some lessons online.. I must say they are working very well! I feel more and more confident with my English.
To sum up, I strongly recommend this teacher. I'm so lucky to have met her!

I've been teaching Italian for 11 years and my students have gone to learn and love not only the language, but also the rich Italian culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to handle basic conversations; later you'll learn to talk about the past and the future, etc. I use different types of materials: books, but also extracts from magazine, songs, videos, commercials, etc. I love mixing language with culture and pop-culture as they all are tightly connected.
