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, and I foster transformational communities.

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!

My second lesson with Ilias. Their language style and teaching is beautifully smooth and easily understandable. Learning with Elias is like catching up with a friend Non vedo l’ora per la nostra lezione prossima!

Elias is patient and very easy to speak to. I was very comfortable and had a great time chatting to them. They gave really clear explanations and were very encouraging. Thank you!

Elias is a great teacher. He is patient, helpful and show some composure whenever it is needed. He is also highly skilled and a great confidence-builder. I strongly recommend him!
