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 Columbus, OH. I was trained as a language teacher in Italy, where I taught for more than 20 years. Three years ago I retired from the Italian Public Schools and came here to continue the work I love, which is teaching Italian.
This is a Professional Letter of Reference received from Prof. Mirella Fanti, headmaster of Malta Middle School (Sicily, Italy), school of my last collaboration before retirement and move to USA:
"Professor Piero C. has worked as Permanent Teacher, sent by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in the Italian schools of Addis Ababa, Asmara and Barcelona in recent years; in these schools he was responsible for Multimedia Languages in Secondary Grade. In carrying out his 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 Italian as Second Language he also holds great skills in teaching 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." - Prof Mirella Fanti, Principal.
Hope to hear from you and start speaking "Italiano" together,
Ciao a tutti! Piero.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

I have a Master Teacher Certificate from Italian Board of Education, and a 1st level Specialization Certificate in "Didactics Of Italian For Foreigners." from Centro La Pira , Florence, Italy.
I thought as a Permanent Full Time Teacher in Italian Public Schools for about 20 years. As a winner a nationwide selection held by Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, I taught in Italian Schools Abroad for about 15 years, where I developed a deep experience in teaching Italian as a Second Language. After my retirement I moved to US where I currently teach in a private Language School.

Wonderful

I have been studying with Piero now for eight months. Every single lesson has increased my command of the Italian language, while being really enjoyable, Piero is an expert in grammar, content, and even the history of words we are studying. It's wonderful to laugh and learn at the same time. His years of experience in teaching is obvious and I would recommend him for beginner, expert, or anywhere
