About Piero

BUONGIORNO!

My name is Piero. I am an Italian native speaker born and raised in Florence, Tuscany, currently teaching and tutoring Italian in Albany, NY. I was trained as a language teacher in Italy. Three years ago I retired from the Italian Public School and came here to continue the work I love, which is teaching Italian. Hope to hear from you and start speaking "Italiano" together. Ciao a tutti! Piero.

I have a video of my students that I made for WyzAnt! It is available upon request.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Italian

-Letter of introduction received from Prof. Mirella Fanti, headmaster of Malta Middle School in Sicily, Italy, a school I recently collaborated with:

"Professor Piero C. has worked as permanent teacher, sent by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in the Italian schools of Addis Abeba, Asmara and Barcelona in recent years; in these schools he was responsible for multimedia languages in secondary schools. In carrying out its task, he was involved in planning integrated courses, curricula and syllabus suitable for the multicultural contexts in which he worked using Italian, English and the Spanish language.
He holds an excellent competence in English and Spanish and having acquired the appropriate methodology of teaching a second language he also holds great skills in teaching Italian to foreign students. Professor C. has a wide experience and great communicative skills, he is able to establish a positive relationship with students in different educational contexts."

I have been a Permanent Full Time Teacher in Public Secondary Schools in Italy and abroad (ages 11-15). I obtained a Teacher’s Diploma from Italian Board of Education, Florence, Italy; and a 1st level Certification from Centro La Pira , Florence, Italy, specializing in "Didactics Of Italian For Foreigners."

Eccellente insegnante (Excellent teacher) — Definitely study with Piero. He is an expert in the language and culture, and a native of Italy, so he knows all the history and subtleties that an American teacher of Italian would not. He takes you along well according to what your desires are; for example, he is working with me on conversational skills as this is what I need the most. Most college programs go with grammar and syntax which are v ...
