Native Italian speaker with 10 years' experience in tutoring!
italki teacher since Apr 1, 2022
I'm Elisa, a native Italian speaker from Northern Italy.
After attending secondary school (where I studied Latin and Ancient Greek, the two languages from which derives Italian) I took a gap year and worked as an AuPair in Nottingham, UK. It was a great experience! After coming back to Italy I attended University and I recently graduated in Psychology and Neuroscience.
I love discovering new cultures and traveling. I also like sports (above all cycling - I once did a cycling trip around Lake Garda), books and music. And, last but not least, I am passionate about Japanese language and culture!
Me as a Teacher
I have been tutoring for around 10 years, and I have a lot of experience especially with elementary school and junior high school kids with special educational needs.
I am easy-going, patient, and encouraging. I will do my best to personalize your class to match your style and help you reach your goal, making the lesson useful, engaging, and fun.
My lessons & teaching style
I offer classes for everyone, from beginner to advanced. If you are a beginner, I can teach you some basic but useful Italian vocabulary, use your textbook to practice grammar rules, and help you with pronunciation. If your level is intermediate or advanced, we will discuss any topic of your interest!
I can help you gain familiarity with spoken Italian, expand your vocabulary, improve your pronunciation and practice grammar rules in a relaxed and fun atmosphere! :) I will also prepare personalized activities to review more challenging topics.
I will provide:
- feedback and correction over grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary
- personalized homework
- slides or tables
I hope to see you soon!

I've been using iTalki for quite a while and it's rare that you find a teacher like Elisa. Not only is she is kind, patient, and easy to talk to, she's the first teacher to ever ask me how I prefer feedback. Such a simple gesture speaks volumes about her approach. She was invaluable in helping me prepare for a trip to Italy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone, especially those who wish to improve their conversational skills.

Elisa - is an amazing teacher. She has a gentle, patient kind demeanour that creates a calm atmosphere that puts her students at ease so that they can gain confidence in their abilities that they already have but don't know yet! She teases the skills out with her patient approach. I HIGHLY recommend Elisa for anyone who is nervous about speaking Italian. She is also really fun, very smart and super interesting.

I had an instant lesson with Elisa and enjoyed it very much. She's knowledgeable, intelligent, and sought to work with me where I was trying to improve. I look forward to working with her more.
