My History

I am from Italian parents but born in New Zealand.  I have always been proud of my Italian heritage and love being able to speak Italian as well as my parents local Venetian dialect.

Over the years I have taught classes of primary aged Gifted Children, teenage Gifted Children, a children’s (8-11 years) class based here in Lower Hutt as well as Adult classes on Wednesday evenings for the last 12 years. I have been a tutor in the community for three years teaching an Italian for Travellers course twice a year.

My family and I have travelled abroad and very fortunately visited my homeland and other parts of Italy in 2008, 2011, 2017 & 2019.

“As a family we have travelled with two pre-teen children, teenagers and without children, so I am happy to provide travel tips to students attending classes. We all exchange our experiences and learn from one another. You will learn more than the language, you will make new friends and learn about the culture, traditions, food and lots more”
