Overview

Hello everyone!I am Italian mother tongue and I have been teaching Italian for the past 3 years. While in college I acquired my Master's degree in Architecture from the Polytechnic of Turin. Currently I live in the Detroit and I would love to continue my passion for my Italian heritage by showing it off to others that lives here as well. I am available to teach: Italian history, Language, Architecture, Document translation from Italian to English and from English to Italian as well as anything else you need to know about the Italian culture!! As far as my teaching experience goes, I have previously tutored English and Italian for young students ranging in age from elementary school to young adults. I teach in person and online as well. I like to teach using books, photographs and videos and prepare sheets with lesson of grammar and exercises. I’m very open minded and according to your preference I can organize the best lessons for you.
Have a nice day!
Buona giornata!

I didn't receive the help for which I had signed up. The 1st class she didn't have her computer and she said she wanted to just meet with me and discuss what we would learn. The second class was fairly productive, but she wasn't familiar with my newer version of AutoCad so we spend more time figuring out where to locate design items than learning how to modify them. The last lesson was a joke. The internet connection she used was simply to slow and I couldn't screen share or follow what she was doing.

I think this was the wrong way for me to get the help I needed.

We introduced ourselves and planned for what we would discuss in future lessons. However, she did not have her computer with her so we couldn't get into any details so I am withholding judgement until we have had a chance to work together

My son enjoyed his beginner's Spanish lesson. Valentina was thorough and concise. She even provided him with homework for the week. Great experience.

Valentina is such a talented language teacher! She really has a way of connecting you with the language so that it sticks in your mind. She helped me a lot with my pronunciation as well!

Not only is Valentina teaching me how to speak Italian, she is teaching me about culture, food, proper ways to say things and etiquette. She is wonderful!

I have been through 3 Italian lessons via Skype with Valentina and she has been wonderful! I have a tricky schedule, and she has been very flexible and patient with finding time for me and my many time changes. Her lessons are very clear and put together well and she is patient and helpful with her teachings. She will take extra time to make sure everything is clear and understood before moving onto the next topic. I can't wait to continue learning Italian with Valentina!
