Hi there! My name is Alessia and I'm a certified English teacher from Canada. I've been living in Lucca, Italy for the past seven years and I love it!
I've been teaching for over six years now. In 2016 I completed my TESOL certificate and shortly thereafter began teaching at a private elementary school. I've worked with people ages 5-55 and my favourite thing about teaching is getting to know people from different cultures and learning all about their customs and traditions. My second favourite thing is seeing my students succeed and achieve their language goals!
My approach to teaching depends on the individual needs of my students. Each lesson is customized to the unique goals of my students. That being said, you can definitely expect homework in my classes! For conversation lessons, we'll focus on using media to expand your vocabulary and spend the entire lesson speaking about different topics. For those who need a grammar brush-up, we'll use various books to support your learning but still focus on conversation to help you fully integrate what you've just learned!
I'm looking forward to getting to know you and supporting you to reach your language goals!

I want to thank Alessia. She is an amazing teacher who cares about your results. Alessia creates an individual program to fit your level and helps you to improve every lesson. When I started my lessons with Alessia, I had a terrible language barrier. At first, a major part of the work was focused on speaking and overcoming this problem. Also, we worked on grammar and expanded vocabulary using lots of books, articles, and additional materials. I really like our lessons and how comfortable and kind she is. It's not only about English, it's about broadening your mind. I highly recommend improving your English skills with Alessia!
