Hi everyone! This is a safe LGBTQIA+ space. I'm a transgender non-binary person (they/them). On italki since 1.5 years and loving it. I love and thank all my students! I teach to adult students of the most diverse backgrounds and cultures, level A2 to C2. I speak foreign languages on a daily basis and from my practice I gain a better understanding of my students. I love getting to know people who live different lives from mine, so be prepared to receive lots of curious, friendly questions!

I really enjoy my lessons with Sonai. He listens to my needs and finds materials to help me reach my goals. He is patient and kind and speaks slowly so I understand. I look forward to working with him in the future.

I have had 3 amazing sessions with Sonai and deeply appreciate the support so far on this language (and life!) learning journey. I normally have so much nervousness in speaking but Sonai has a way of connecting where I don't feel afraid to make mistakes and somehow they seem to understand and the conversation keeps going. It is really great and feels a little miraculous :D. I have left each session feeling more confident and excited in the possibilities to come. Thank you so much for the support Sonai!

I’ll just be direct - stop EVERYTHING you are doing right now and book a lesson with Elias! If you are not taking a lesson with them RIGHT NOW then you are wasting your time today. Learning from them is such an unimaginably enriching experience….your life will be much better, trust me. Thank you, Elias for being such a great teacher and such an amazing PERSON!

Elias is such a brilliant and joyful teacher, always helpful and willing to adapt to the student needs. He is very easy to talk to and is able to keep the conversation going even when the student struggles to find words. He manages to boost your confidence speaking - my ability to speak italian has improved a lot since I first started doing lessons with him. I can't recommend him enough!
