About me

Hello! I'm a 40yo Italian guy, I've been living in Asia teaching and giving private language tuition (mostly French and Italian) for the last 7 years then came back to Europe and now settled (mostly) in Spain.

I've travelled around more than 50 countries, and beside being an avid traveller I do love food (cooking and eating), reading, learning new languages and much more.

I am bilingual French and Italian and I can conduct our classes in English and Spanish as well (any combination up to your needs!)

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

Conversation rules!

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.

Good intro lesson, very easy to talk to and he'll correct your French and write the corrections via skype for you too so you can look at them afterwards. An enjoyable lesson.
