My name is Elena. I’m a native Italian speaker, I’m 49 years old and live in Turin. I graduated in Foreign Languages and Literature in Milan and have been working as a teacher of Italian for more than 10 years. I speak English and German.
I love meeting people from all over the world, get to know new cultures transmitting some of my Italian culture.
I began my experience in a language school, I was then the owner of a private language school and now I am working as a private tutor.
I have worked with children, adolescents and adults for all levels of Italian, from beginner to advanced. I have experience in preparing students to international certification (CILS, PLIDA). I was an A2/B1 Telc examiner.
I offer 1-to-1 or 2-to-1 tuition, general Italian courses (grammar, conversation, listening, reading), preparation to Italian examinations (all levels) and Italian and culture courses.
My classes are tailored on my students’ needings and considering their level of knowledge, I create a proper course plan. Classes focus on language and on the possibility for students to improve their ability to speak and understand Italian in their daily life or in work.
Grammar, vocabulary exercises, reading articles and magazines and talking together are all tools to feel at ease with the Italian language and then be able to practice it.
Learning Italian can be closely related to culture, literature, music, sport and any other interest of my students.
Thank you very much Daniela. I am very happy to teach you Italian and to be your teacher.
