Daniel Marco Portaluppi



Born and raised in Milan, in Northwest Italy, Daniel is a certified Italian teacher with a BS in Economics and a Diploma in TESOL. He has gained experience teaching adults and children in Italy, the United States and Hong Kong.


Daniel discovered his love for 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 a trial by fire, learning English literally on the field to communicate with his American teammates. Since then, 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 the 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 on a flexible teaching schedule that includes both private and group classes on weekdays and weekends. Interactive, full immersion modes of learning are also available.
