Welcome to my profile!

My name is Marco and I am a professional instructor of Italian, English and Spanish. I hold a magna cum laude Bachelor’s Degree in Modern Languages and Cultures (English and Spanish) and a magna cum laude Master’s Degree in Foreign Languages and Translation (English and Spanish). I have always been passionate about teaching foreign languages as I believe that speaking several languages opens the door to the future and helps you gain a better understanding of the world.

I currently live in the USA where I am working as a freelance instructor of Italian, English and Spanish, and I have studied and worked in several countries around the world, such as Spain, Ireland and Peru. Being a professional instructor, my classes are supported by the best books and materials on the market which I will send you as part of the fee that you are paying. This means that after each session, you will have very useful materials that you can review at your own convenience. That is why my classes are worth every penny! My sessions have proved to be very efficient, and I can guarantee you that after studying with me, you will make a lot of progress.

My classes usually have a little of everything, so rest assured you will not get bored!

You do not need to buy any materials because I provide them during the lessons.


- CANCELLATION POLICY

I am flexible and considerate of others but, unfortunately, some students have taken advantage of my kindness. I am a professional instructor making a living teaching online, which means that everytime you book a session and do not show up, I get damaged. It is possible to reschedule a class, provided you do that at least 24 hours in advance, so that another student can take that time slot. If you fail to do so, you will be charged for that session.
Thank you for your understanding.
