Learn Italian in a fun and effective way from a Native Speaker with 20 years of teaching experience!
I am a native speaker of the Italian language, I have helped many people achieve the level of Italian they wanted to reach. Whether you just want to learn how to carry a conversation or learn Italian literature and culture in depth, I can get you there. Being born and raised there I can also make sure you do not learn any false or inaccurate notions as I have seen many people learn that had studied from books or American teachers (I hate to sound arrogant but I speak out of experience). I can also teach Sicilian dialect and literature should you be interested in that.
About Andrea B.

I have been teaching professionally for the past 15 years and love it! Academically, I hold two degrees (production & performance) cum laude at the prestigious Berklee College Of Music in Massachusetts and have ever since worked as a guitarist, bassist and producer. I was fortunate enough to work as a musical director for grammy nominated blues artist Bobby "Hurricane" Spencer. My duet with guitar legend Scott Henderson, titled "Bulldozer", was also featured in "The Loner - Tribute To Jeff Beck" album along with several famous guitarists. I have been enthusiastically reviewed and/or interviewed by Vintage Guitar Magazine, All About Jazz, M Music and Musicians Magazine, LA Weekly, Boston Globe and currently write instructional columns for Guitar Club, Italy's most read guitar publication. During my many years as a guitarist I have studied with the following greats: John Pisano, Steve Trovato, Julien Kasper, Tim Miller, Carl Verheyen. Regi Wooten and Peter Mazza. In my many years as a teacher, I have helped students of all levels from beginners to fellow professionals. My philosophy is to make the learning process as enjoyable as possible and at the same time make sure the student keeps marking solid progress towards their goals.
