Italian Stallion?

Italian tutoring

I am an ——- native offering Italian tutoring this summer in the afternoon, evenings, and weekends. I studied Italian intensively at Georgetown University in Washington, DC (2003-2007) and after graduating got a job in Turin, Italy. I am fluent in Italian and can offer grammar lessons and/or discussion. Please email me if you are interested.

Bonjourno!
I am dying to learn Italian, and was hoping you might be able to help.  Currently, I only know 3 Italian words:
prego
ciao
prosciutto

Looking forward to hearing back from you.  Arrivederci!

Thanks,
RP

Ciao Randy!

I am so glad you want to learn Italian! How many hours a week were you thinking? Around what streets do you live near? I live out west off of —— but I work every morning more towards —-. I usually charge $30/hour for lessons. We could bring that down depending on how many hours a week you want to do. Please let me know what you think.

Best regards

Ciao Michelle Bella!
It’s my intention to quit my job in pest control and learn Italian full-time.  Many of my peers refer to me as the “Italian Stallion” and I feel as though I don’t adequately live up to the designation. I believe that becoming fluent in the language is the first step to changing this, and significantly improving my life.  The 45+ hours a week that I typically spend working, I would like to solely devote to learning Italian.  Does this sound reasonable?  Once I feel that I’ve got a good grasp on the language, especially in a conversational setting, I’d like to become skilled in Italian cooking.  Do you know any good recipes?  I recently attempted to make a meatball (or should I say, “meat-a ball-a”), but the results were less than appealing.  I really like meatballs.  Do you?  Do you need any more information from me?  Hope to hear back from you soon, and I can’t wait to get started!

Thanks,
RP

Randy,
I am only available 2/hrs a week. I can suggest some recipes you could look up on Google – meatballs are actually American, Italians don’t really eat them. My boyfriend is a great cook, so I can ask him for some suggestions. When do you want to start? We could meet in a Borders or Starbucks.

Michelle,
Quite frankly, if meatballs are American, then that changes everything.  Do you teach Russian? Or Mexican?

Thanks,
RP
