Ciao!

I am an Italian tutor and college professor who has been working for many years in the field of education. In the past years, I have been mostly working as a professor of Italian, however as a private tutor I have helped many students, of all ages, to deal with different subjects: from reading & writing to SAT and Spanish.

I hold a Master in Foreign Languages and Literature (English and Spanish) and Ph.D. in American Studies, therefore I am very versatile on what I can teach, including American Literature and History, Comparative Literature and Creative Writing.

I have a longstanding experience in teaching foreign languages (Spanish and Italian) to basically everyone and I am particularly fond of communicating in Italian with anyone who is interested in learning more about Italian culture and language.

I am very passionate about teaching and I always try my best to adapt to each student's needs, in order to build a custom method of study for every individual. I believe that we are all different and we all need to approach studying in a personal way.
I am very good at helping students to find their own path in their academic career.

I had my first Lesson With Giuseppe and it was awesome! I was able to learn as much in that one session as 2 weeks of using my phones Italian learning apps. Can't wait for Lesson Number 2!

Coversation with Guiseppe was verry good. He is able to pinpoint my level of Italian and push me to learn more.

First class was great. We went over verbs and had casual conversation. He adapts to your level of Italian very fast.
