« I have known Tiziano for 15 years. We are both native non-English speakers and I give him my highest recommendation for foreign language instruction. Tiziano is patient, kind, and thoughtful in his feedback. He takes the time to get to know his students, which builds trust, and in turn, creates a more productive learning environment. Tiziano and I worked together in multiple summer camps, directing and working with students. He is great with students of all ages, generates rapport and directs student energy into learning. Learning a foreign language is challenging in different ways from Math or Reading--growth happens in discomfort when learning a language. Tiziano is able to inspire and support--even when the going gets tough! I am delighted to recommend him for any teaching position. He will rise to any challenge with humor, energy, and organization. »

Native Italian Speaker offering online Italian lessons catered to your own needs

Methodology

I believe it is essential to identify a student's strengths and weaknesses when learning a new language. Every student learns differently, especially when it comes to tongues. Once I have identified the student's strengths and weaknesses, I can then tailor the lessons accordingly.
I also believe it is imperative that the student is immersed in the language completely. This means conversing only in the foreign language that is being studied during the lessons. Humans have a natural desire and necessity to communicate in order to survive, therefore if there is only one language to be spoken, our brains will natural adapt and the student will be more likely to grasp concepts faster without having to stress about vocabulary, grammar, and verb conjugations- they will come easily and naturally.

Background

I was born to Italian parents in Washington DC, moved to Italy at the age of 1 and lived there for 9 years. I then moved back to the US, where I quickly learned English and also began taking Spanish lessons. I am a Native Italian speaker and possess a natural aptitude for languages and teaching.

I have known Tiziano for 15 years. We are both native non-English speakers and I give him my highest recommendation for foreign language instruction. Tiziano is patient, kind, and thoughtful in his feedback. He takes the time to get to know his students, which builds trust, and in turn, creates a more productive learning environment. Tiziano and I worked together in multiple summer camps, directing and working with students. He is great with students of all ages, generates rapport and directs student energy into learning. Learning a foreign language is challenging in different ways from Math or Reading--growth happens in discomfort when learning a language.
