I met Luca at our archery club last autumn. He is definitely one of the most hard-working people I have ever met, and it has been such a privilege to get to know such an intelligent and positive person. I can always rely on him to help me with my technique at our training sessions, and I'm grateful for his patience with someone as stubborn as me.
Luca is a very good friend of mine and has helped me on many occasions with revision for my upcoming exams. He has helped me to understand the topics I have been unclear on. I would recommend Luca as he is friendly and makes understanding topics much easier.
