Buongiorno! My name is Valentina, nice to meet you :)
I was born in Italy, and my first language is Italian. I lived in Budapest for a short time, and in the United Kingdom for seven years.
I've studied in Padova, where I got a Bachelor's Degree in Cultural and Linguistic Mediation. I speak English fluently and I'm currently studying Spanish and Norwegian.
I love reading (fantasy is my cup of tea) as well as cooking and going to the gym. I'm very much into fitness and general wellbeing, and I'm interested in psychology and human sciences.
Me as a Teacher
I'm an easygoing teacher: it's so much easier to learn a new language while you have fun!
Once we discuss your goals and needs, I can give you a lesson plan to get you where you want to be. The most important part of our relationship will be communication: it's vital for me to understand how to tailor my lessons around you and for that I need you to be honest!
I enjoy working with authentic materials, which are a great part of my lessons: I want you to learn the language in the most genuine and realistic way possible. It can be frightening at first, but then you'll love it. I promise!
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching style is student-centred: all of my lessons will revolve around you, practising the language and building confidence in real-life conversations.
You can choose from three different kinds of lessons:
1. Grammar lessons: focus on a specific grammar point, with exercises and speaking practice.
2. Reading or Listening: reading/listening practice with comprehension tasks and focus on vocabulary.
3. Conversational lessons: let's chat about anything you'd like.

Valentina is an absolute sweetheart in her way of communicating with the student. She never lets you down and always makes you feel like you're chatting with a friend you had for many years. Every time our lessons end, I feel so confident with my Italian language skills while I continue my day. Absolutely recommended, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Valentina is excellent teacher! Very attentive and professional! Will continue study Italien with her for sure! Highly reccomended :)
My first lesson with Valentina was very good. She is pleasant and engaging as well as interested and supportive. I look forward to future lessons with her in an attempt to straighten out my fractured Italian!
