Hi, I'm a native Italian teacher and live in Salerno, a little town in the south of Italy.
I have been studying English and Spanish, so I know from experience that learning a language takes time and dedication. My aim is to make this process as pleasant and fun as possible.
I deal with many students around the world by giving language lessons, both in person, at the Italian language school Accademia Leonardo in Salerno, and via Skype or Zoom.
My passion for languages and my studies brought me to understand that languages are not just simple codes ruled by grammatical norms, but that they are actually used to express ourselves as individuals with different backgrounds and cultures.
Lessons will focus primarily on the conversational aspect of the language by using textbooks and materials (e.g. PDFs, audiofiles, Googledocs) that I use in language schools in Italy.
Since I have the DITALS certification, I can help you pass CELI, PLIDA and CILS exams.
Flexibility will be guaranteed according to the student. All students will be asked to take a placement test that they will have to submit at least 3 days before the first lesson. We be discussing the results during the fist lesson and then decide how to work together.
Since I also work at the language school, I strongly recommend booking in advance so I can arrange my agenda.
I’m ready, and you?
Select a time to book a 30-minute trial session.

Very enjoyable lesson today. I really appreciate how Marcello uses Italian culture to teach the language - bringing the two together creates a depth, relevance, and interest to the study of both. I'm also very impressed by the way he has taken into account my own strengths and weaknesses (more of the latter than the former!) to select the types of exercises most helpful to my development in all three skills of listening, reading, and speaking.
