The Argentine plied his trade in the Premier League for a total of seven years, turning out for West Ham, Manchester United and the Etihad Stadium outfit.
However, he believes that Serie A has proven to be a tougher challenge than English football.
"Football here is more difficult than in England. Therefore, I have had to modify a few things," he told La Stampa.
"The first lesson is that you can't keep hold of the ball here because if you beat one man, then another, a third will pop up and take the ball away.
"A forward needs to be good at movement and Conte is guiding me in these changes. He's already given me 10 pieces of advice which have turned out to be correct.
"I wasn't lying when I said that he looks after the details like Sir Alex Ferguson."
Tevez went on to say that he is enjoying Juve's tactical set-up this term, having started the season up front alongside Mirko Vucinic.
"I fit well into the system because that is my role," he added.
"If we went to a 4-3-3 then I would want to be the central striker. I don't like playing wide, you don't get to see a lot of the ball and I want to be in the middle of the action."
