Hi everyone! This is a safe LGBTQIA+ space. I'm a transgender non-binary person (they/them). On italki since 2 years and loving it. I love and thank all my students! 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! In my spare time I enjoy nature, movement, singing, dancing, reading, exploring new places. Apart from enjoying delightful conversations with my students, I dedicate my time to coaching people to achieve their full potential for a fulfilling life.

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’m so thankful for Sonai! We had a really fun, dynamic conversation yet their energy is so warm and friendly. I’m looking forward to many more conversations with them :)

Sometimes my Italian is just so bad, but Elias is always patient and helpful and makes me feel like I can actually express myself and am not so bad after all! I love my lessons with them.

As always, it was a real pleasure to talk with Elias. It cannot be easy listening to my Italian but they help me say what I want to say and show me that I can make myself understood. They are a very confidence-building teacher and it is really enjoyable working with them.
