I took Italian language private tutoring lessons with Valenti Lingua for about a year and a half before moving to Italy. To best prepare, I needed to establish a strong foundation and command of the language including hearing, speaking, reading, and writing. Davide was the perfect teacher to help me accomplish this. He is very flexible and accommodating as he tailors his lessons to suit your learning style, preference, and pace. Upon arriving in Italy, I was surprised to be able to communicate naturally and instinctively as a result of the training with Davide – these were incredibly rewarding moments that I thank him for. Regardless of the type of lesson or proficiency level, Davide is a passionate and effective teacher, whose ultimate goal is for his students to successfully learn the language and enjoy the process.
