I am Ilaria, and I am a native Italian teacher. I have been teaching Italian for several years now, and I love my job.
I am a full-time Italian teacher, and I am building my entire career around the Italian language. I am also a blogger and a podcaster.
In the past, I have attended German and Spanish courses. But I am still a language student, in fact, I keep taking English classes, so I know how difficult and frustrating can be to learn a foreign language for my students.
My teaching method is focused on the students. During the first lesson, I ask them why they want to learn Italian and the goals they want to achieve. I am a supportive person, and I will constantly be there to guide you during the challenge of learning a foreign language!
With beginners, we will start learning grammar, but I will try to let them speak from the first lesson, helping them to create their first sentences.
Once the level advances, the part of the conversation will become gradually longer, but obviously, we will keep adding grammar information.
With students with a higher level, I will be more flexible and, the work to do will be decided together. Some of them prefer to have an informal lesson, based on conversation. Others prefer to have a more structured class, with readings and exercises.

Ilaria is a fantastic teacher who has excellent teaching materials, goes through it really well and her lessons build upon everything we've covered to help internalise the rules and grammar. She also does really well using zoom, popping everything in the chat and explaining any vocabulary she uses. Really happy and looking forward to continuing :)

Ilaria is very enthusiastic and explains everything clearly. She encourages you to speak in Italian as much as possible which is great for improving my spoken Italian. Really enjoying the lessons.

Ilaria is such a nice person, you can talk with her about literally ANYTHING! She knows a lot about italian culture and history and manages to explain even complicated grammar in an easy way. Oh and also, she constantly(!!!) makes you feel awesome about your Italian, which is very motivating :)
