About this pro
He's a wonderful tutor! He really values the role that grammar plays in knowing and understanding the italian language; it is not about simply learning a few italian phrases, but learning to speak the language like a true native speaker. He makes learning fun and offers a library of outside learning sources which you can use at home. In addition to being a wonderfully knowledgable tutor, he is also very kind and understanding.Jul 29, 2018Verified
Antonio is totally different in teaching technique. You must try him if you wanna get a 100% positive result.Jun 3, 2018Verified
Antonio is an amazing Italian teacher. He incorporates many different teaching tools, from emphasizing grammar and pronunciation, to reading Italian books and watching movies. I highly recommend Antonio as a teacher.Sep 17, 2017Verified
I have been working with Antonio for about a month and a half now and I have nothing but good things to say about him. He's such a great teacher and so patient with me. Very excited to keep learning from him!Aug 31, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It's not complicated; usually $35-$40 an hour, depending on the student's location and I'm not a clock watcher. And if a student is really serious, and wants two lessons a week, I'll come down to $30 an hour ($60 a week). And I'll charge you the lower rate ($30) if you're a college student who's barely getting a C in Italian and who needs an A to keep up his/her average. I'll need to know what college you go to and what text book you use.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The student should meet me in person and decide if I'm the right teacher for his or her needs; I'll be there to help them make that decision by showing how I teach and what materials I use. I don't like to teach in public places, unless it's at a private study room in a library. I'm currently teaching an ESL student at the Redondo Beach Library, which has private study rooms.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?All of my so-called primary education was in Italy, and Italian schools are very good, although a bit strict. My secondary education was also very good, I attended Stuyvesant HIgh School in New York City. It was (and still is) a math and science school and although I'm more of a humanities guy, I still think I got a lot out of it. The icing on the cake was the opportunity to study at Temple University in Philadelphia which has a very good Italian department and which is where I got my Bachelor's degree. My strongest skill is not just knowing Italian, it's knowing English and knowing the differences between the two languages. A lot of Italian guys and girls come here thinking they're going to have an easy time teaching their native language, but if their English isn't up to par they're not going to have an easy time at all, and their students are going to suffer.
