My name is Valeria and I have always been passionate about foreign languages and cultures. I have spent most of my life in Italy, but I have always felt a strong connection to Latin America and the Spanish language, as my father is of Argentine origin.
My love for languages led me to study Foreign Literatures at the University of Bologna and later to specialize in the Master's program in Learning and Teaching of Spanish in Multilingual and International Contexts at the University of Deusto, in Spain. During my studies, I had the opportunity to travel to Brazil and the Netherlands, where I had the chance to teach Spanish.
Currently, I live in Barcelona, where I work as a Spanish teacher and I am always searching for new methods and tools to make my lessons more fun and effective.
Over the years, I have written four books in Spanish, two of which in collaboration with one of the largest Italian publishing houses, Feltrinelli, while the other two independently. I continue to cultivate my passion for languages and culture, always seeking to learn something new every day.
I have been teaching Spanish for over 15 years. During this time, I have developed and refined my learning strategies and memorization techniques, which I offer to my students to help them achieve their language goals. My teaching methodology focuses on the individual, even in group contexts, ensuring maximum clarity and gradual progression.
Group lessons are highly interactive, encouraging active participation from students. In particular, my DELE exam preparation courses are one of my strengths: I can boast a 100% success rate among my students who have all achieved the Instituto Cervantes certificate.
For students who want an even more personalized learning experience, I also offer private lessons, designed to meet their specific language needs. Additionally, I also work with companies and professionals, providing customized courses with manuals and materials developed specifically to meet their unique requirements.
Choosing my courses means opting for a professional, motivating, and highly personalized approach to your Spanish language learning journey.
