This is how 2 referees rated Giovanni:
IMPORTANT: Please be aware there is a small charge for petrol when travelling outside Milton Keynes.
I am Italian and I attained a BA in foreign language in Palermo, Italy, where I worked till 2007. In Uk I worked as customer service consultant and I dealt with French and Italian customers over the phone and translated KB (knowledge base articles) from English to Italian and French. I also have been teaching Italian and French in the Uk since 2008.
I worked in Palermo as French, English and Italian teacher. I assisted students in improving their achievement by meeting with them on a regular basis to clarify learning problems and work on study skills. I also reviewed class material, discussed the text, predicted test questions, formulated ideas for papers, or worked on solutions to problems.I also provide online lessons through Skype.
I value and appreciate students as individual and I genuinely care about them and want them to succeed and I am also aware of differencese amongst learners.

Before, I lacked confidence in French, but now thanks to him, I believe I can get a grade 7 (with ease) or possibly grade 8 at the end of the year, thanks to his efforts.
I'm so happy I found him, he has been a saviour!
Update: I ended up achieving a grade 8
As a result of his high quality tutoring my daughter has obtained the maximum grade in her Italian GCSE. A splendid 9.
I find that this approach suits me well as I can practise what I have studied myself during the week and ask questions where I need to.
Giovanni's qualities as a teacher are numerous. He is patient, accurate and enabling in the sense that he provides me with an inner confidence in myself and my abilities.
Sadly, what is holding me back from my goal is a lack of time which is no fault of my tutor but I get very frustrated when asked to provide an essay for marking which proves impossible owing to the constraints of time and my demanding work.
Nonetheless, Giovanni has never reproached for this.
Over and above his teaching skills Giovanni and I share many interests and this makes for wonderful spirited conversation which certainly improves my grammar and vocabulary. I enjoy my lessons and look forward to them each week as I gradually improve towards my goal.
Giovanni is very knowledgeable and *very* patient! He can engage with diverse age groups, diverse level of knowledge and maturity. He has also been very flexible and fit around a busy schedule. I do not hesitate to recommend him: do what he says and you'll get there!
So glad I found him!
Due to having an Italian Partner, i needed to brush up on the language and really get an understanding of the grammar and workings of the Language that i wouldn't otherwise pick up by myself.
Giovanni has been very patient and is always available for questions during and after each class. In addition, his extra homework/tasks have been invaluable in ensuring that i really get the understanding of what we learnt in each class.
I intend to continue working with Giovanni and would highly recommend him to anyone at any level.
I would reccomend to anyone looking to improve and spend the effort in doing soon.
I was moving to Italy in a period of 6-months so he adjusted the pace of learning to get me to an intermediate level, gave me supplementary material for the automotive industry I work in and would always answer my queries and qualms promptly. He's helped get me in to a fantastic position with my lingual skills so I'll be able to enjoy everything Italian; the culture, weather and food.
I will stay in touch with him as he was keen to see my progress despite having moved to Italy now.
A presto, grazie mille
highly recommend him to anyone wishing to have one to one language lessons.
He was very patient and good at explaining the Italian exercises set for homework.
I would highly recommend Giovanni.
Understands student potential and difficulties and addresses
Course material to tailor to needs of student
Grazie mille Giovanni !
But Giovanni has given me the confidence, materials, guidance and support to continue along a journey which I suspect may be a very long one
Highly recommended if you need a French tutor.
Very knowledgeable friendly tutor.
Thank you very much
He is entirely professional, extremely punctual, and very welcoming. No question is silly, and no level of experience is required. He will instantly put you at ease and you will be able to get to grips with the Italian in a direct and fun way.
He not only gives well structured lessons, but also sets interesting and useful homework. He understands that as adults we have working lives too and doesn't request hours and hours of individual learning. We look forward to learning with Giovanni - Thanks so much for your help!! :)
Lovely and flexible, highly recommended!
