Daniel Marco Portaluppi

DASS Tutor


Born and raised in Milan, North west Italy, Daniel is a certified Italian teacher and holds a BS in Economics and a Diploma in TESOL. He has gained experience in teaching adults, children in Italy, the United States and Hong Kong. Daniel discovered his love of languages as a teenager on an American Football pitch, of all places.  After being selected to join the team at a US army base outside of Milan, it was trial by fire, learning English, literally on the field in order to communicate with his American team mates. Since that time, he has perfected his English and also picked up Spanish. Daniel understands the challenges of learning a new language and is totally at ease in making lessons fun and engaging. Since moving to Australia just this year with his Australian wife, Daniel is passionate about sharing his knowledge of Italian language and culture. If you're looking to learn useful, conversational Italian that will help you impress your friends, family and colleagues, or communicate with locals on your next Italian adventure, he is a committed and patient teacher who will help you learn the essentials to become a confident communicator.  
Daniel operates to a flexible teaching schedule that involves both private and group classes on weekdays and weekends. Interactive, full immersion modes of learning are also available.
