About meHello! If you cannot resist the temptation of diving into my country's culture, ordering food at an Italian restaurant, savoring Benigni's accent in "La Vita è Bella", getting a taste of Italian sense of humor, or perhaps only going on a trip to Italy, you are in the right place! I offer customized Italian lessons for all levels and ages. My name is Elena, I am an Italian exchange student at UC Berkeley with a major in sociology and political science (at my home university, SciencesPo Paris). I have been giving Italian face-to-face and online classes in France, Brazil and the US for two years to people of all ages - even to a 2-year-old kid! - and from different countries (thanks to my knowledge of French, Portuguese and Spanish as well). I am really passionate about teaching since I love working with people from all over the world and it brings me joy to empower them to become citizens of the world. Normally my methodology is the following: while making sure that your grammar is solid, my aim is to improve your conversational skills by simulating dialogues and daily scenes since the very first lessons. I will complement books with songs, movies, articles and other alternative tools, depending on your specific interests and needs.
