Piacere di conoscerti! (Nice to meet you!) I want to introduce myself so you can get to know me a little bit. My name is Valentina, but you can call me “Vale” for short, I’m from a beautiful city in Sicily called Catania. My hometown is located next the biggest active volcano in Italy, Mount Etna, and I like to always say that when I introduce myself because I think it’s pretty cool. Right?! I have a Bachelor’s degree in English and Arabic, so you can tell that a passion for languages runs in my blood. When I was in college, I got the chance to teach Italian to foreign students through the student exchange program at my university and it was an incredibly rewarding experience. I moved to Texas about a year and a half ago, and since moving here, I have rediscovered my passion for sharing about my beautiful language and culture to everybody who will listen! I can teach online or from home, I live at a beautiful apartment complex that has a clubhouse I can use for classes overlooking the river walk. I am looking forward to hearing from prospective students, help me make my dream come true: to share a piece of Italy with as many people as possible! In return, I can guarantee my full commitment to your learning my making your Italian learning experience a fun and exciting one and one targeted for your very personal needs and learning style!

Valentina was extremely patient as my Italian was sitting at a kindergarten level of that! However once she walked me through the basics of grammar, used her real world examples, and basically gave me an insight into average day Italian I was able to make the connections to start getting it. Her English is excellent and the extent of her linguistic knowledge was such that she made translating, studying, and practicing very engaging and encouraging. She is a very engaging, personable, and motivated teacher and I more than appreciated her efforts in helping me prepare for my Italian tests for work. Grazie Mille Valentina!
