I completed 25 hours with Livio. He is the best Italian tutor I ever had. He is patient and focused. He is very keen in teaching Italian to his students. He understood my pros and cons and tailored the classes to improve my drawbacks. The tasks (homework) he gave were geared towards my needs and he followed up on them quite diligently. He is punctual and always cheerful during the class. He conducts classes professionally and structures them in a way that it focuses on what I need to learn or improve. He never loses track of time, and switches sub topics with ease. He was always patient and was eager to repeat things any number of times. His attitude and class structure reflects that he had my best interests in his mind. I had some bad experiences with other online tutors (not this website). The most memorable one: the tutor chats online with others while teaching me. She was totally distracted during the whole class for which I was paying. I was so put-off, I dropped her. I recommend Livio to others very strongly.
Livio is a truly fabulous Italian teacher. Instead of taking a "one size fits all" approach to teaching, he really tailors his lessons to each individual students' needs. And he teaches in a way that really engages and motivates. Livio is very flexible and accommodating with his schedule, which makes it very easy for busy professionals (such as myself) to take lessons on a regular basis. He is also always on time so that we can maximize our lesson time. In addition, Livio has a wonderful sense of humor, which makes for really fun lessons! I've learned more with Livio in just a few months than I learned in years of Italian classes when I was in school. My lessons with Livio are definitely a good investment of both my time and money. I'd gladly refer Livio to anyone wanting or needing to learn Italian!
After my first month of studying Italian with Livio, I feel I have a much better understanding of the language. I started out knowing basically nothing, and now am able to ask basic questions, use common phrases,and my vocabulary has grown. I am much more confident trying out my Italian in stores and with others. Livio is positive, friendly and patient. He not only explains the language thoroughly, he also explains the culture and history of Italy, which gives a better understanding overall. I highly recommend Livio as a teacher, and if possible, to take the classes in person with him!
Livio is an absolutely excellent teacher. After assessing me, he quickly found my areas of weakness and targeted those in our lessons. At the beginning of each lesson, Livio would tell me what our targets were, helping me to keep focussed throughout. At the conclusion of each lesson, Livio would record useful phrases from the day's lesson onto a tape which I found very helpful to listen to between my lessons. Homework tasks were interesting and challenging and Livio gave very good feedback on written homework tasks which I found very beneficial. Livio is a very caring, organised and fun teacher and I highly recommned him. My only regret is that I did not organise myself to start lessons sooner.
After my first lesson with Livio, I could tell that I was dealing with a true scholar, a masterful linguist. As a student of philosophy trained to ask probing questions, I certainly put him to the test. I sought the structure, the meaning, the historical context, the essence of the language. He answered every question in thorough detail. His presentation was patient, clear and precise, accessible even to the neophyte yet enough to satisfy the seasoned scholar. Livio distinguishes himself in a market that is otherwise flooded with superficial language programs.
