About me

Hello! I'm a 35yo Italian guy, I've been living in Asia teaching and giving private language tuition (mostly French and Italian) for the last 5 years, and I love this job :)

I was born from Italian parents but grew up in France till I was 17, so I'm fluent in both languages. I love to teach following my student's interests to make the learning process easier, and I have a solid grammar and teaching background.

Qualifications & Experience

Degree in Foreign Languages at Ca' Foscari Venice University, Italy

DALF (obtained in 2001)

I've been teaching and working as translator/interpreter for the last 5 years, first in Iran, then Tokyo and finally Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur), where I usually live - now back for a few months to Europe. I still have my Malaysian students via Skype - it's a fantastic way to teach for both tutor and students :)

Teaching Approach

I like to teach what the student wants to learn. After having a chat at the beginning of the class to understand the purposes and goals in learning the language I know what to focus on during the classes.

Different people learn in different ways, so for some students a strong grammar basis is needed, others want to achieve a good colloquial level of fluency, so we work on that :)

I've got plenty of teaching materials I can pass to you as a PDF file through Skype to use in the class as well as materials I prepare myself for specific topics. I focus on using media (movies, radio and music) to have access to the culture, not only the language.
