My name is Ilaria, I'm from Milan and I'm an experienced and certified italian teacher for foreigners.
I've been teaching italian for the last 8 years, working for different language schools and cultural associations in Milan and abroad.
I've been working with students of all levels, ages and background including immigrants, high school students, kids, adults ,seniors and college students.
I have already been teaching online for 4 years.
I’m a language learner. I speak english, portuguese and spanish.
I lived in Ireland, in Portugal and in the Netherlands.
I love intercultural relations and during my classes I really enjoy covering topics related to culture, geography, art, music, gastronomy and much more!
My classes are conversation driven. I speak italian from the first lesson and you will realize that this is possible, even for a beginner!
Together with speaking, I always include some reading, listening, vocabulary, writing and a focus on grammar rules.
During my classes I like to use different materials like songs, images, games, role-plays, poems and videos.
I like to prepare tailor-made lessons according to my students needs and interests.
I’m also an experienced travel agent and author of articles related to tourism and culture.
I can also help professionals who need Businness Italian classes or Italian classes for the tourism industry.
If you want to learn or improve your Italian, book a lesson with me and I’ll see you soon!
