My name is Elena, I'm a native and CLTA qualified Italian teacher with MD in Italian Linguistics and 10 years of teaching experience in Copenhagen, London and Barcelona. Studying and teaching languages has always been a great passion for me, and I do my best to bring this enthusiasm into my work! Whatever your reasons to study Italian, I’ll prepare the best possible bespoke material for you! Besides, you’ll get to speak right away, from Lesson 1!
There's more: how would you ask a platypus if they feel more like a ducky ferret or a furry duck? In Italian. I'm ready to bet a Spritz no teacher has ever asked you that! Or anybody else ever, for all that matters. But they should! Let me explain: everybody knows how to order in a restaurant or ask for directions but it’s when you step out of the safe path that your brain really starts to learn faster.
For one thing, you won't feel the pressure to look smart in front of your teacher. C'mon, they just asked you to speak Italian with a platypus, are you really worried about bad impressions? For another, you’ll have to work with your own resources to deal with a new situation. Which comes very handy when you speak with natives. (Natives always have this bad habit of saying a lot more things than what's in your handbook, and they never seem to ask you the questions you know how to answer...) So, why don't you give it a try? ;)

Tailored specifically to meet my needs, which I like a lot. She obviously takes time beforehand to make sure she adapts her resources to my specific requests, which are related to my employment related needs. Very much like her style and her dedication

Highly recommend!!! Been studying Italian with her now for a few months. Very helpful lessons. She is patient, understanding, and has an excellent approach to learning the language. Been a great supplement for my own private learning. Well worth the money and time.
