Teaching since:

My teaching experience, most of it at University level, includes ten courses over four years as an assistant professor at University of Bologna, where I was able to establish an easy rapport with both undergraduate and graduate students. My students appreciated my enthusiasm and knowledge of Italian language, and culture. I have a strong interest in Italian modern art and literature. Recently, I have been enjoying teaching Italian to adults.
I strongly believe that the most effective way of engaging my students is by giving importance to their lived human experience rather than given. Indeed, Italian is not primarily a language which takes place in the mind, although is essentially a way of being. Let's be a little bit Italian, then!

I very much enjoy my classes with Roberto. He explains thoroughly and with great humor. I am now attending my second class with him, and a number of students from my previous class are also continuing under his tutelage. That is a true vote of confidence!

Roberto has been my teacher for Italian 1 and 2 at the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles. He is smart, nice and easy going. His classes are low-stress and enjoyable and we are always learning. I confidentially recommend Roberto as an Italian language teacher.

Roberto is fantastic! He teaches Italian in a very practical way, providing a great deal of cultural context, and is always open to taking the class in the direction that best suits the students. I've learned so much in only a few months.
