Stress-free and customized Italian classes: learn or improve the"dolce lingua" with an italian teacher

Methodology

I customize each lesson on my student's passions. Customization allows students to experience each lesson in a more funny and easier way and facilitates learning of languages. For example if you love music we will use many songs to learn.
My teaching method combine linguistic (grammar, vocabulary, phonetic) with culture (italian culture, music, food and tradition).
I won't teach you just a language but I tell you about Italy lifestyle, food, music, history and local cultures.
Each lesson will have writing, listening and dialogue sessions. Above all, I use a communicative method that focuses on the aspects of the language most used in everyday interaction.

Background

I am native Italian and I love travelling the world.
I am an online italian teacher but I am also a travel consultant and a travel writing. I am in love with everything concern food, local living, art, design, handcraft and hidden nature gems of my country, Italy. And I love being an italian teacher and a travel consultant just because I can share with other my passion.
Contact me if you want to learn or improve Italian. Studying and learning together will be enjoyable and fun.
I am a patient and flexible person and I would love to help you to improve your level of Italian in many ways.
In the first lesson we are going to examine the best method for you.
I speak English and Spanish fluently. I have been studying languages in Venice and I am so proud I have been working with foreign clients since 2009. I love traveling and interacting with different cultures.
I have been offering Italian classes since 4 years.

I came to Italy one year ago and started doing classes with Elena, my Italian is almost perfect now and I always get the compliment "Parli Italiano molto bene per essere qui da un anno" That means:You speak Italian really good to be here for only one year. I could write this entire recommendation in Italian but I want you to understand the value I see in learning with her. Se vuoi imparare veloce e correttamente Elena è la persona giusta.

Elena is the perfect balance between the patient and the demanding teacher. She knows when to urge to do more and when to make jokes and wait for you. She never missed any appointment. Top.

I have learnt so much from Elena! She is a very knowledgeable person full of interest and plenty to share so all lessons are never dull and you always take something with you. So...when you think of a language class what do you think? You want something engaging, fun, supportive, understanding and with a different twist that makes it special, right! if this sounds like what you are looking for, look no more, you have found your match!

Elena is fantastic! I couldn't have been paired up with a better instructor. She caters each lesson to your likes (travel, food, fashion, etc.) to make each interesting. I look forward to every lesson and she's been so amazing to work with. She keeps things positive and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Elena is a great teacher. She's fun, competent and reliable. I definitely recommend to take Italian lessons with her if you want to learn not only the language, but also habits and traditions of Italy.
