Mr Roberto Tuzii is an excellent tutor who always makes an effort with his unique lesson planning that is best suited for my level of knowledge in Italian. Always on time, always friendly and very professional with his teaching.

Before getting a tutor I was a fairly average student. However I needed help in order to get me through Year 11 and 12 VCE, currently in Year 11. Roberto has helped me with grammar, listening, writing and speaking and i have been able to achieve an "A" on my semester 1 year 11 exam. Can only get better from here. We highly recommend Roberto if anyone needs any help.

Roberto has inspired my learning and passion for Italy and the Italian language. I'm really pleased with how my verbal and written skills are progressing and the confidence I've developed for my Year 12 studies and preparation for final exams. I am thoroughly enjoying working with Roberto and look forward to my lessons each week. I highly recommend Roberto to anyone who wishes to improve or excel in Italian particularly for VCE studies.

I am grateful to Roberto for his guidance and assistance with my Year 12 study this year. I really appreciate the time Roberto takes to give me plenty of individual attention and also providing me with detailed instructions, constructive feedbacks and encouragements. I am blessed to have you as my tutor as I can see the improvement I have made in my Italian studies.

Prior to working with Roberto, I spent about a year on and off dabbling with learning the Italian language via youtube and duolingo. Progress was slow, so finally I committed to engaging a tutor and have now been working with Roberto for a couple of months via Skype. I wish I had done this earlier. He is a terrific tutor and I have made a lot of progress in a short amount of time. Obviously he has a terrific understanding of the Italian language but he also has access to a wide variety of resources such as texts, programs, games etc. In addition to teaching the language, the variety of learning resources provided by Roberto keeps the process interesting and fun. For anyone serious about improving their Italian I would highly recommend contacting Roberto.

Roberto is a very knowledgable and passionate teacher. He is very organised and always comes prepared with excellent teaching material and always offers extra material for home learning.

Roberto has an extremely comprehensive grasp of his subject. He is punctual, courteous and energetic. He is clearly passionate about his native language and enjoys imparting this passion and knowledge to his students. He provides excellent resources with which to enhance the learning experience and a relaxed and friendly environment in which to learn.

I have been learning from Roberto for about 3 years now. After trying group classes several times, I've found private lessons work much better with my speech. As someone who is reluctant to speak up in a group, it gives me the opportunity to speak more often and improve my fluency and accuracy, but in a less intimidating environment. In addition, the lessons are tailored to my needs and interests.

Robert is a fine teacher, full of enthusiasm and love for the language and culture of Italy. With his help I can now speak reasonable Italian and we often have some interesting conversations over a coffee. When I started studying with Roberto my Italian was very poor but now if I meet an Italian l am confident in my ability to communicate with him. I couldn't recommend Roberto any higher. Renato

Roberto is a fantastic tutor for Italian, I highly recommend him to anyone who would like to learn the language in a fun and enjoyable way. I had the pleasure of learning to speak and write with him and through his planned out lessons, endless number of resources and his continuous positive attitude, I loved learning italian and succeeded in VCE Italian. Roberto was always willing to change his style and approach to suit me and was always willing to make every lesson enjoyable. Thank you for everything Roberto! Grazie Mille!

Riley G 4.5 5 4 5 5 5 4 5 5

At the start of the year my average mark for Italian was somewhere between 50% and 60%, and my conversation skills were lacking. Roberto, however, has improved my skills greatly helping my achieve an ATAR of 92, with Italian being my second highest study score. Each week we would cover writing, reading, grammar and speaking in such a manner that I was continually revising throughout the entire year without even knowing it. This meant that come exam time, I had already completed most of my preparation and I was very confident in my knowledge of the language. My writing has improved drastically, as I can now write 300+ word essays with very few grammatical languages in Italian, and my speaking comes rather naturally. I have to credit Roberto for his excellent and enthusiastic work. I highly recommend him as an Italian tutor!

Roberto is a fantastic tutor committed and dedicated to his students. His methods of teaching are brilliant and very effective. He is a complete professional at what he does. From just a few weeks with Roberto I already felt close to becoming fluent in Italian. I highly recommend Roberto as your Italian tutor if you wish to learn proper Italian with an intelligent teacher. The lessons are fun too!! Best, Georgia

Renato P 4.5 5 5 5 4 5 4 5 4

When I first engaged Roberto I could hardly put two Italian words together. And if I did it was grammatically wrong. We began with learning some grammar and doing exercises to reinforce what I was learning. Over the 140 lessons I have improved so much that now I can speak with Roberto for an hour and a half on nearly any subject. I do make plenty of mistakes still but Roberto paciently corrects me and explaines why what I said was grammatically incorrect. If you really want to learn Italian you won't find a better teacher.

Roberto is awesome. He has been teaching me, my hubby and 4 primary aged kids some basic Italian.

I cannot recommend Roberto highly enough . His personalized course - expressly tailored for you as an individual - ensures that you move at a pace that really does suit your specific needs and goals. His ability to explain Italian grammar (and of course his impeccable knowledge of English and it's grammar ) means that Italian very quickly can start making sense. I love the variety of teaching resources and I even love my homework ! I also appreciate the great effort gone into the extensive preparation for each lesson , which is time you are NOT paying for. Looking back at essays written by myself over the last year, I am thrilled and proud of how far I have come and very much looking forward to continuing my Italian journey . Roberto's knowledge , patience and enthusiasm for language certainly place him in a category well apart from the average teacher. Thankyou Roberto.

Roberto Tuzii is a wonderful Italian language teacher and has an incredible comprehension of the rules of the language.

Ciao! I have been Roberto's student for two years now. I think only thing I am afraid of is one day he decide to retired. Well, he promised he won't for another 10 years which means I will be his student for another ten years. He always be patient and enthusiastic! I believe he wants me to speak Italian more than myself. It always great to have lesson with him, he is not only teach you Italian but also the culture, the people, the food etc. I feel the time always goes fast during the lesson. Well, if you decide to be his student, you have to finish your homework on time, study hard, also enjoy the Italian food! ^-^ Thanks a lot Roberto, I see you in next lesson! Grazie!

I have been studying with Roberto for almost a year now, and his assistance has greatly improved my Italian. Finally when I visited Italy last year I felt able to manage conversations with locals speaking no English. I love the language but am easily distracted from study; however Roberto has helped to maintain my focus and my enthusiasm for learning.

Roberto Tuzii is always enthusiastic and seems to enjoy his teaching. He seems to have a passion for the language and gets a kick out of my improvement. His communication skills are very high and so I'm always going in the right direction. His teaching is well organised and therefore there is a flow in my learning. Couldn't recommend him more highly.

Italian is not my first language and I only became serious about learning it about one or two years ago. I received my VCE results this morning and I got a 41/50 in Italian and could not be happier! Without the help of Roberto I do not think think I could have achieved the results that I did. I am now able to confidently speak and write in Italian and I am truly grateful to Roberto for helping me learn the language. He is a wonderful and enthusiastic tutor and I highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning Italian!

I have been working with Roberto now for over 7 months. I had a very little italian knowledge when I began. I am now able to write short stories, hold conversations with people (very slowly mind you), construct sentences and I now know the names of many objects. I have found Roberto's teaching very very helpful, he is very patient and is always enthusiastic about teaching. I am so grateful for his time each week and I feel like I improve each week. I would recommend his services to anyone, and I do!

Roberto continues to be a wonderful tutor. As an educator I am very critical of how I am taught. Roberto creates real interest in his students and is able to convey easily complex areas of learning. He does this through games, conversation, stories and books. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons and look forward to them every week.

I continue to have interesting and challenging lessons with Roberto. Whilst still enjoying the text book approach to learning, Roberto has also incorporated multi faceted multi-media learning programmes. These programmes enable me to practise my verbal skills (with the latest multi-media data I am able to record my own voice and compare it with the correct pronunciation, the programme charting where my inflection is incorrect), my writing skills (my corrected stories can be downloaded to an mp3 and listened to as read by an Italian native speaker) and my aural comprehension skills, all in a stimulating and entertaining fashion, whenever and wherever I want. Thank you Roberto for your enthusiasm and up-to-the-minute approach to teaching.

I love Italian, had some notions, being French, and wanted to be able to speak Italian. Well, thanks to Roberto, I do, not as well as I would want to, but I DO! Roberto himself is very enthusiastic and I admire him for that. He has put me onto various programs on the internet, all very useful and reinforcing what we cover in the lessons. He is very patient and i appreciate this very much, especially when I was sick. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons.

Roberto is a great tutor. He is funny, enthusiasitc, patient, encouraging, of course handsome as well! I definitly even more interested in studying Italian than before. I can't wait to have my lessons every Monday! Of course he will give me some homeworks to do and he always says you don't need to do it if you don't want to. DON'T BELIEVE THAT! Make sure do the homeworks on time!! I am sure he will be my tutor for next 10 years if this is possible. I can imaging one day, I will speak great Italian, but not only that, also I will learn so much from him about Italian culture, Italia food, Italian's life and Italian songs! Thank you very much Roberto! Buno Natale!

Roberto continues to make the sessions interesting and uses a range of teaching strategies. He uses a large range of resources from books, online activites, CD's, stories and question and answer activities. He also uses a number of interesting games and activities to keep the sessions interesting. Always punctual, friendly and helpful, I continue to enjoy these sessions and my Italian has improved greatly - I was delighted with how far I had come when I visited Italy recently - and was commended on my language.

Roberto is a real find ! I attended some well known language schools in Melbourne and decided to take the plunge and have private tution, this was the best decision I could have made, I learn't more in ten lessons with Roberto then in the class room. Well worth the investment and time, thank you Roberto!

Roberto has helped me greatly with my Italian for VCE. It is very easy to forget the elemental rules for a language, especially if you are moving at a fast pace or just trying to keep up with the rest of the class and missing a few things along the way! In my tutoring lessons with Roberto we worked on solidifying these before moving onto bigger tasks. I feel as though my grammar and writing has improved, now we are moving on to focus on oral skills! Grazie Roberto.

Roberto is an insightful, good natured, friendly teacher, who imparts his knowledge clearly. After 3 1/2 years of attending various Italian language schools (inc. Perugia Italy) progress was frustratingly slow. I have found the 'one-on-one' lessons with Roberto to be extremely satisfying; we are consolidating what I have learnt-to-date, correcting gaps and oversights as well as introducing me to new and more advanced grammar. The conversation component of the lesson is invaluable. Thank you, Roberto

Roberto is a passionate teacher about helping his students learn italian. He is extremely supportive and works best when his students are committed and dedicated to their studies. He is meticulous in his planning of the lesson individually preparing each class to where the student is at. It is very varied and often great fun. He never made me ever feel uncomfortable for getting something wrong. If you want to learn italian and committed to the educational journey then I would highly recommend Roberto. He is always on time and his fees for service are extremely reasonable for a professional who comes to your home or workplace. Roberto has a perfect command of English and australianisms as well as most italian dialects.

Roberto is passionate about his language and his style challenges you to see if you are serious about learning the language. The individual tuition is brilliant as it is tailored not only to your level but can also cope with variations in your study patterns, i.e. as a business woman I do not have the capacity to devote the same time to study each week. Roberto takes me forward as I am able.

Having reached a plateau in my Italian after learning it for 8 years, I have made a leap forward with Roberto which I was not achieving in a class of 8-10 students. His enthusiasm for all things Italian is infectious. He puts a strong emphasis on grammar and I was surprised to discover that this really has improved my spoken Italian as well. In fact, my confidence in speaking has grown so much that I enjoy a good argument with Roberto. We disagree about many things which is always interesting!

Along with Roberto's tutoring and my own private study, I was able to achieve a study score in LOTE: Italian 3/4 in the high thirties. There was a huge improvement in my language abilities from when I first began lessons, up until the final exam, when I discontinued tutoring. Thanks Roberto! Grazie mille!

Over the past few years Roberto has helped me learn and speak Italian. In my final year of VCE, Roberto helped me have confidence with the speaking aspect of the language and helped me preapre for a study score that I was very happy with. He always makes the lessons interesting and fun as well as helping me to improve constantly. Grazie e a presto Signore!

Roberto is a excellent teacher, in 5 months he took me from struggling in yr 12 Italian, to being able to hold conversations with ease. To call him well prepared is an understatement and his knowledge of the language and skill as a teacher far surpasses that of my school teachers. All you need to be is keen. My 2011 atar was 94.55 - what else is there to say, I couldn't have done it without him. Grazie mille signore!

Roberto is an experienced language teacher. He is passionate about Italian and uses this enthusiasm to bring out the best in the student. He uses a wide array of superior source material (text books) as well as a range of teaching tools (internet, games, books, CD, computer programs) . The variety ensures every lesson is different, and holds your attention. I have no hesitation in recommending Roberto as an italian tutor.

Every week I look forward to my Italian lessons with Roberto - the convenience of having him come to my home, his expertise and experience, the variety of form his lessons take and his passionate approach to learning Italian as a language. I love the use of mixed texts and aides - especially the Italian books and stories and I appreciate the extraordinary effort and time that goes into his lesson preparation. My confidence in speaking Italian when traveling and when with Italian friends has grown and I am certainly looking ahead to my next year of Italian studies. Thank you Roberto

Roberto is a fantastic Italian Tutor! I would highly recommend him to anyone intersted in studying Italian, no matter what your level. My partner is Italian and I have been speaking Italian for over 5 years. I have also lived in Italy for over a year and a half, and converse well in Italian, however gramatically I make lots of mistakes. I have been working weekly with Roberto since February to improve and correct my Grammer. His lessons are very well prepared and structured to suit my needs, and I can see a fantastic improvement. Roberto has years of experience and knowledge, and is extremely dedicated and passionate about teaching Italian. As a student, this is so invigorating, and spurs me on each week. We use a selection of text books and exercises which are clear and are specifically targeted to strengthen and improve my weaknesses. I would definately recommend Roberto to any prospective students, seeking help with their Italian.

I have had three Italian teachers, one for 6 months when living in Italy, however Roberto is by far the best. Roberto has an extrordinary way of working with students to made the learner enquire. His ability to lead the learner on a journey has truely begun for me. His different delivery options have been exciting. I feel very fortunate to have found this skilled teacher.

My Italian has improved beyond sight since starting with Roberto, His resources are excellent, the lessons are incredibly organised and always varied. that said, they are dynamic and flexible. I'm currently in Year 12 and oftentimes the lessons revolve around the topic that I'm studying at the time - It's a huge help. Being with Roberto is like being in Italy with a Maestro.

Roberto follows a well structured curriculum that has an emphasis on learning to speak Italian correctly without having to unlearn bad habits that can be picked up via short cut methods. He provides extensive high quality texts and audio visual aids. The lessons first cover the basics, then progressively develop to where Italian is spoken throughout most of the lesson. The pace of learning is entirely up to the student.

This year I put my Italian to the test with two months travelling through Italy and often received compliments on my grammer and pronunciation, so without a doubt I'm happy to recommend Roberto. Now that I'm hooked on the language I'll be continuing my lessons, and looking forward to honing my conversation and grammar skills with Roberto for my next trip to Italy.

Having tried learning Italian through classes and groups in the past without much success or satisfaction I decided get serious and try a private tutor. Some 8 months ago I found Roberto through this website and started private tuition. The main difference I noticed immediately that Roberto was teaching the Italian far more comprehensively than the previous classes or groups I had attended, where the language was studied far more 'superficially'. Roberto's enunciation of the Italian language is excellent and his choice of learning texts, material and supportive learning aids such as CD Roms is very good. Due to pressures of business at times I have a problem finding sufficient time to devote to my studies and have found Roberto to be understanding. Like any study input usually equals output and am sure that anyone who studies Italian with Roberto and puts in the necessary time will learn to speak fluent 'proper' Italian

Roberto is a very good tutor. I have learned a great deal from him. I used him before I went to Italy last year and in a very short space of time he taught me alot. I was able to have a conversation with someone regarding accommodation or food or at a cafe or many other things and I felt comfortable doing it. The resources he uses are excellent. He loves his job and this is reflected in the quality of his tutoring.

Roberto is an outstanding Italian teacher. He is the person to learn with if you are serious about capturing the beauty and nuances of the Italian language. Moreover, it is fun and challenging. His use of various modalities to enable you to learn is excellent. His Italian sense of humour is really quite funny whilst at the same time giving you a real sense of the culture. I plan to travel to Italy soon and will try my new learnt skills. When I return , it's time for the next level!!

Each lesson has been made for my level of learning and I am now more fluent and confident .Roberto puts a lot of work into his lessons and ensures that each one is stimulating and a challenge for each student.

I'd previously been reticent to open conversations in Italian, but now find I've the confidence to communicate quite well. Thankyou Roberto. You're a gem. I recommend you highly.

There's no doubt that learning another language is challenging. Roberto has such talent which keeps his student immerse in the language with excitement. He takes extra time to find out your needs and tailors a learning program that suits you. I walk away from his classes feeling pumped and eager to learn more. Roberto always surprises me with different learning medium and I love the story books he recommends.

Roberto is an excellent tutor in the italian language. He knows where he wants to go with the course, what comes next, and is always prepared. He tailors the cadence of the lessons to me as a student and employs activities from a numerous sources and media. This helps keep every challenging lesson fresh and interesting. Roberto also encourages you to do that little bit more, and inspires the confidence necessary to perserve with learning the language. In a word, accomplished.

Roberto is a thoughtful and reflective teacher of Italian. His experience and expertise enables him to accurately assess the student's ability in the language and he plans his lessons accordingly. His teaching enables the student to understand the structure and dynamics of the language in a comprehensive manner. The lessons are a mixture of learning modalities that make them more interesting and challenging. Most importantly is that the lessons are stimulating and fun. Roberto is very engaging and has a wonderful sense of humor. He is always well prepared and open to explore your concerns. I highly recommend anyone who is serious about learning Italian to have Roberto as their teacher.

At last, after several years of attending different classes,all my previous learning is being put together and I am really becoming more fluent and confident with the language. I look forward to continuing with Roberto in 2011, and wish him well.

Roberto is an exceptionally well qualified professional. He provides excellent resources. He displays a genuine interest and enthusiasm in my learning (even when his ears must be hurting from my awful Australian pronunciation), which is both motivating and reassuring. I find the lessons nicely balanced between challenging and fun. I believe that I am getting great value for money for a tutor of this calibre and experience. Looking forward to continuing my Italian language journey with him.

Roberto was a great a tutor. The only reason I stopped seeing him was that I am going overseas. I will use him when I come back. He was very enthusiastic and the different methods of teaching were far better than just using notes and a text book, I have now tried two ways of learning (class room and tutor) and this is really the only way to go. He far exceed my expectations. Buona Fortuna Roberto e a presto!!

Roberto provides a linguistic basis to learning which emphasises the grammar and written concepts alongside the oral. This enables me, after the 68 hours, to confidently read basic Italian and orally read with fair pronunciation. I have a fair grasp of the mechanics of the language which will provide me with a good foundation to enjoy my time in Italy and to further develop my langauge. It was great to do this 1:1 from home using Skype, supplemented by the regular homework sheets, audios and basic reading books. Thanks Roberto.

I have been studying Italian for six years in various classes and went to italian school in Italy for two weeks. I reached the stage where I needed to put together all I had learned, I also required the confidence and assistance to speak fluently. After only 11 lessons I can say that I have improved in all aspects of learning the language.Roberto is highly focused on individual needs and prepares the lessons very well.The lessons are something I look forward to and even the homework is fun.I like the one on one because the lesson is prepared for my level of learning yet pushes me that little bit further.I will continue to study with Roberto and look forward to my trip to Italy in 2011.I will, I am sure,feel very confident speaking the language when I get there..

Roberto is a superb tutor. Roberto's lessons have developed something I honestly thought I'd never get: confidence. Before Roberto’s lessons, I had read an Italian grammar and a course or two and had tuition in Italy. But fear, among other things, meant that I had not a bit of confidence. Roberto’s lesson content, his fun manner, and sensitivity to my weak spots have allowed me to develop this confidence, and now I am starting to speak Italian, and without the feeling of training wheels. Roberto’s materials are also superb. He seems to have sifted through the mass of Italian language learning materials, and found the gold, which he assigns for homework. These bring out some of the tricky or surprising aspects of the grammar, while also providing enough simpler things for reinforcement, and avoiding the juvenile vocabulary/design of a lot of language resources (though I imagine he’d have plenty of gold appropriate for kids). Another great thing about Roberto’s lessons is that, as other reviewers have noted, Roberto tailors the lessons to suit me, my knowledge and skills. This means that I never feel frustrated or adrift. Instead, I have this wonderful sense of consistent progress, which is exciting as I contemplate how much more my Italian will develop in future with Roberto’s tuition.

I cannot recommend Roberto highly enough . His personalized course - expressly tailored for you as an individual - ensures that you move at a pace that really does suit your specific needs and goals. His ability to explain Italian grammar (and of course his impeccable knowledge of English and it's grammar ) means that Italian very quickly can start making sense. I love the variety of teaching resources and I even love my homework ! I also appreciate the great effort gone into the extensive preparation for each lesson , which is time you are NOT paying for. Looking back at essays written by myself over the last year, I am thrilled and proud of how far I have come and very much looking forward to continuing my Italian journey . Roberto's knowledge , patience and enthusiasm for language certainly place him in a category well apart from the average teacher. Thankyou Roberto.

Roberto provided a very professional language service. As a teacher myself, I was impressed with the variety of activities he offered and the perception he showed when assessing my level of comprehension and motivation for the day. I liked the homework he expected each week as I could embellish it to suit myself, make it as brief or lengthy as I had time for, and reflect whatever I'd been doing that week. The mixture of interactive computer lessons, book work, listening skills, and direct verbal interactions made the sessions move very quickly and were most enjoyable. His manner is very polite and professional. He was welcomed into my home where the lessons were held, and readily chatted with my Italian husband. My Italian was much improved on my recent 2 months in Italy.

Roberto is a very patient tutor especially with me being an older student,having been some what confused with other teaching formats, one on one is definitely the best discission I have made, class room formats are not specific enough for my individual requirements. I feel with Robertos experience he has been able to quickly recognise my status with the language and concentrate on my weaknesses with structure and comprehension of the Italian language.. I would recommend Roberto to anyone who may have tried other Italian courses and are not happy or confident with their results.

Roberto has helped me greatly with my understanding of the language and has definitely improved my grammar and conversation. Previously I've had large-class lessons from a couple of institutions which I've found difficult in that it's impossible for a teacher to take all levels of students into account. With Roberto and a one-on-one lesson he structures it specifically to my needs. He's very well prepared and offers a variety of teaching resources which keeps the lesson interesting and challenging. Roberto's passion for the language enthuses and motivates me as a student and he answers my queries in great detail and always with useful examples. I believe his method of teaching is most effective and far superior to a group class. I will continue with Roberto and recommend him to anyone who wishes to improve their language skills.

I highly recommend Roberto to any prospective student of Italian. I studied Italian by myself for seven months before being brave enough to find a real life tutor! I chose Roberto because of his strong tutoring background and some good reviews from other students. I think my learning has accelerated since I started lessons with him and I'm pleased with the outcomes. Roberto uses a range of teaching resources and different modes of learning, from conversation to written exercises to internet resources and plenty of fun learning games. So there's always plenty of variety. His feedback is always spot on and enables me to focus my study time at home on the right things. The other great thing is that it is really convenient for me - our tutorials are done through Skype video conference because I live in New Zealand. Roberto is very professional and accomplished in his use of computer resources - I am especially enjoying the use of remote access to the programmes he has on his computer - including programmes he developed himself. To anyone considering a personal tutor, I would recommend this way of learning as an effective way to keep your study interesting and motivating, especially with such an accomplished and enthusiastic teacher as Roberto.

Roberto is a skilled and passionate Italian tutor. He has an infectious love of his language and an intimate knowledge of language teaching methodology. He employs a wide range of resources to build the students' understanding and inject variety and interest into the learning process. He has remained sensitive to my progress and responds constructively to any blocks. I meet with Roberto twice each week, have had 57 lessons to date and intend to continue with him for the long term. I endorse him without qualification to anyone desiring to learn the Italian language.

I have been having private tuition with Roberto for a bit over 12 months now. I initially started lessons with Roberto with a view to improve my Italian prior to a planned holiday in Italy and have continued my lessons since returning with a goal to becoming more fluent in my spoken Italian. Roberto tailors his teaching methods to suit the individual student rather than following a set course. This means that you are able to progress at your own pace and that any difficulties you have with learning the language are better managed. I have been very happy with my progress with the Italian language. Having learnt Italian at school, university and through a course at a language centre prior to commencing private lessons, I can thoroughly recommend private tuition as the most effective method of learning a language. Roberto is very passionate about teaching Italian language and culture, and his enthusiasm for the language certainly rubs off. Whilst the lessons can be challenging at times, they are also a lot of fun. Roberto uses a variety of teaching materials including internet resources, multimedia programmes, conversation as well as following a teaching manual. I intend to continue studying Italian with Roberto over the coming years and would thoroughly recommend him as a tutor for anyone considering learning or continuing to learn Italian.

Roberto is providing private tution to my husband and myself. We see learning Italian as a longterm project, which we have undertaken together. Roberto comes to our home to provide tution. Roberto is very enthusiastic about teaching and learning Italian. He provides a variety of stimulating tools and methods for learning Italian. He has been able to structure the course at a pace that suits us, is challenging but not threatening. He is open to the many questions we put to him and provides clear answers. Roberto manages to make the sessions fun with a variety of teaching methods. We are now starting to have conversations as part of the class, this is challenging in a very constructive way. We intend to continue studying the Italian langauage and culture with Roberto for a longtime and can recommend him as an excellent teacher and communicator.
