Valentina Gargano

Chief Educational Consultant & Founder

 

My name is Valentina Gargano and I am the founder of Gargano Educational Consulting.

With a degree in Science from the University of Trieste, Italy, a specialization in teaching, and a specialized certificate in college counseling from the University of California San Diego, I have spent all my career with young people, guiding them and supporting them in different ways. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a young woman or a young man thrive in the adult world.

I am a math and science teacher, a mother, and a consultant. I am Italian, and I currently live in France. I have a son that has studied in The Netherlands and is now living in France, a daughter that has graduated in the US and is still working and living there, and my little one is considering Spain as her place of study.

After teaching in public and private international schools in Italy and France and after helping my own children and students choose their universities in the US and in Europe, I have recently decided to move in a new direction, still dedicating my time and experience to students as an independent educational consultant (IEC).
