I highly recommend Pietro as an instructor. It was my first time skiing and my first time coming out of my comfort zone, he pushed me enough to challenge myself but also he was soft enough so si could enjoy the day. He has a calmness and a way of explaining things that really captured everyone in our group. He is definitely the best private instructor there is. If you’re serious about learning how to ski he is the person you should consider. I am so happy with the choice, he made the experience memorable and motivated me to keep on going and I look forward to my progress.
I offer a range of ski lessons and coaching designed to improve my students' technical skills, no matter their level.
Before they can start teaching the techniques, ski instructors need to learn all they can about their students. I can often get a good read on my students' psychological state from their speech, posture, and the way they move. Putting on skis for the first time or after a long break is a scary experience for everyone (except small children!), and I use this insight to help my students to overcome their fears. A good rapport can even lead to lasting friendship.
The fear of falling is the first obstacle standing between novice skiers and the beauty of the landscape, the snow, and a whole world of adventure. One of the most common mistakes a ski instructor can make is barking commands, completely ignoring their students' psychological state.
Over the years, I have picked up a few tips and tricks: keep talking, ask questions, and take a genuine interest in the person in front of you. I want to build a relationship based on trust to help my students overcome their anxiety, from vertigo sufferers to people with joint problems, experiences skiers etc.
