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.

Nadia is a fine instructor. Take it from me who's been coached in many sports - tennis, skiing , riding, swimming. AM is a sport, too, in that the student has to do most of the work. Nadia tells us what to do to improve, but it's up to us to practice.

First lesson in, and I already feel like the goals for myself are more than attainable under the tutelage of Nadia. I learned so much in my first thirty minutes. I can't wait to go back.

I am a native Italian speaker who has been teaching and tutoring for several years.

I love to teach and to guide my students on a journey that is not only about grammar, language, but also a cultural and idiomatic one.

Join me in this learning adventure of my language and country.

From the get go I knew I had found the perfect teacher,
Enrico is a motivating teacher.
He challenges you to learn what you need by reading and discussing interesting materials he sends .it isn't just not doing verbs exercises and tenses but actually participating in actual situations as if you were in Italy .
Enrico quickly helps you get over the nervousness that students experience when reading out loud and discussing the meaning of words in sentences and their uses.

Studying Italian with Enrico for a little over 1 year. He is a fantastic teacher; carefully prepares special learning material each week to augment textbook and encourages conversation and culture. He has special talent for teaching that makes grammar and conversation easy to understand

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!

Tell the truth? I was skeptical at first. Language lessons on line? Really? BUT Giulio is GREAT. Bright, pleasant, totally fluent in English and (obviously) a native speaker; a young native speaker on top of that. He has no agenda; is willing to help you as you need, but ready to help fill the gaps when you are stuck on how to proceed.

I recommend him without reservation.

Giulio is a fantastic teacher. I have had several lessons with Giulio and I have found him to be interesting, patient, and humorous. He understands what I know and don't know and makes sure that the lessons are very productive.
