I'm Valentina and I'm Italian, born and raised in Torino, Italy. I've just moved here in Michigan and I'm very excited to share my language and tradition here! I have been teaching Italian for the past 3 years. As far as my teaching experience goes, I have previously tutored Italian for young students ranging in age from elementary school to adults while I still lived in Turin.
I’m outgoing, versatile and enthusiastic to share everything about my language, culture and traditions.

Our high school son was studying a semester in Italy and knew no Italian. We hired Valentina after reading the great reviews and were more than pleased. She was flexible and accommodating to a very tight schedule and our son learned a lot from her. She sprinkled in some cultural and historical lessons on Italy but primarily language. Valentina is high energy, organized and a great teacher. High marks for punctuality, personality and teaching! She even offered to help him once in Italy which we may explore if needed. Thanks Valentina! A wonderful experience.

First lesson was good, although we had some technical difficulties using Skype -- probably my fault not Valentina's -- and ended up speaking by phone. Once we get that worked out, I expect to improve my conversational Italian, with special emphasis on conjugating verbs. So wonderful to speak with someone whose first language is Italian.

Quick view profile

Teaching has always been my passion. I have been teaching Mandarin for 10 years at various Language Institutes, and taught at private schools in Michigan for total of 5 years. With corporate client experience, I also have been working as a Mandarin instructor in a language company. There are many adult students with different levels who are currently learning Chinese from me. My success stems from enthusiasm, self-motivation, patient, creativity and the ability to communicate with students from diverse backgrounds. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to make the learning easy and fun.

I've had a great experience so far. Yiju is patient, enthusiastic, and fun. Her lessons are easy to get into and the time flies by really fast. She's very engaging on cultural topics, illustrates a variety of ways to say something, and is generally very organized and punctual. She has been very accommodating to my requests and helping me learn in a way that works for me. Since I had my own study materials before I started lessons with her, she has worked with me to practice the material I studied already. I would definitely recommend her.

Wonderful instructor. We look forward to continuing lessons later this year. She was very professional and made my 15 year old daughter comfortable with learning Chinese. She tailored the lessons to fit her aptitude. I would highly recommend her. She also met us at the local community center which was very helpful logistically.

Bgcheck Background Checked


I taught and tutored and teach Spanish to USA Veterans and students struggling around campus for years. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I grew up hearing it and studied it in high school and college level. I know what it is like to be a student in a Spanish class as well as using it in real life application. I also have 2 minors in Spanish Language and Latino/a and Latin American Studies (Formerly known as CBS: Chicano-Boricua Studies) which give me the perfect mix of language and culture.

I am very patient and work on your level. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I use that experience to put myself in your shoes and give tips and cultural things that may help you better understand your new language. Also, my knowledge of Psychology helps us hack learning in a time efficient way. No question is ever a dumb question and we will spend as much time on a topic as needed.

About Jamone

I am very organized and have a passion for creating and doing things that give people a new perspective on life. I set plans and goals, and do what it takes to get things done in the most efficient ways possible and I am able to adapt even when things don’t quite work out. As a 2nd Degree Black Bel

Had to write a separate review for this subject. Jamone taught me step-by-step how to use my Cannon Rebel EOS T5. I am a youtube vlogger, and I was looking to create higher quality videos for my viewers. Jamone gave me tons of camera knowledge to better my videos. Thanks!

I have been teaching ASL the past 3 years and have performed the National Anthem for the Tampa Bay Rays, Philadelphia Flyers, and the Reading Phillies. I congratulate anyone willing to learn this language as they are joining a community that is thriving and welcoming like a family! I make sure my students always know fun ways to remember signs as well as the origin! I love talking about Deaf Culture and how it ties into the language. I studied at Gallaudet University (the only Deaf University in the world!) and love to share my experiences. Come sign with me, let's have some fun!

"I recently began taking lessons with Hannah and it has been a wonderful experience. I went in intimidated at the thought of learning such a difficult language from scratch, but Hannah has been a very helpful and encouraging instructor and makes the language so much more manageable. I've been rather amazed by how much Korean I have been able to pick up in such a short time and have no doubt that I can become fluent eventually under her instruction. Anyone interested in learning Korean should absolutely take lessons with Hannah!"
