My name is Salvino and I condust private Italian conversation classes with passion using effective modern teaching techniques... I give you the latest expressions and modal phrases used in Italy today (which is more up to date than the book you learned basic Italian from), and help you comfortably understand what is said to you so that you can easily compose a reply in your mind to communicate with the natives speaker when you visit Italy. I teach proper Italian (not dialect), although I also am well-versed with at least 4 dialects out of the 600 spoken on the peninsula.

I have students who own their own Vineyard in Adelaide, and they report how friends marvel at their improved ability to Converse in Italian.
