I am a native Italian native speaker with advanced French, qualified to teach at Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and A level. I have over 13 years of experience in teaching the Italian languages in a prestigious Italian College and in different cultural settings, and I have completed the three SILSIS courses, the Italian equivalent to a PGCE, in Italian, Latin and Ancient Greek , Classic History, History of Arts and Geography with outstanding results.
I am a highly organised, self-motivated team player, and am passionate about teaching and working with young people
Valerio is an excellent teacher. He has a very thorough knowledge of Italian grammar and culture, and is good at conveying his enthusiasm for his subject. He is also happy to let the student pick topics that interest them. One thing I particularly appreciated was that Valerio always explained everything in Italian, even if at first I did not understand. He is very resourceful at reformulating his explanations in simpler language until the pupil understands, without resorting to English.
I am very satisfied to notice my French has rapidly improved in both the areas of speaking and comprehension.
Great french teacher

I had the opportunity to have a french lesson with Valerio and he was semply great. The atmosphere was very relaxed and he was extremely clear in explaining some of the french grammatical rules. In only 1 hour I have learnt a lot. Highly recommended
