Want to learn Italian and/or Spanish? Do you want to know more about the Italian culture and cuisine? I am here to help you reaching your goals no matter if you start from the beginning or you are intermediate. I am an Italian teacher with a degree in foreign languages and tutoring has always been my passion. My lessons are customized to your needs and interests. When you reach your goal, I’d reach mine too. E’ ora di iniziare.. Io sono pronta e tu ? Let's get started! ITALIAN FOR TRAVELERS! Taking a trip to Italy and want to learn Italian? If you want to have a great experience and be prepared for every situation you'll find yourself in, basic Italian is a must. Going to Italy knowing more than Ciao and Buongiorno, would make everybody feel more comfortable. If you want to improve your Italian before your trip, have some lessons with me. My lessons are focused on conversation in contexts, vocabulary and phrases you need to know if you travel there. I'll be sure you learn what to say in every possible situation that can occur while you are in Italy. Also, I'll share with you cultural information about Italy and Italian people. Every culture has its own habits and its own way of doing certain things. And it's always good to be prepared to avoid the well known " culture shock". Allora, io sono pronta e tu?
About Elisa P.

Ciao! My name is Elisa and I am a native Italian speaker. I was born and raised in Italy and now I live in Portland, Oregon. I have a bachelor degree in Foreign languages (Minor: Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication) at the University of Milan, Italy. I am also in the process of getting a second certification to teach Italian to foreigners. I always keep up to date with Italian news and culture and courses. I come back to Italy every year for 3 months and teach from there. I started teaching in Italy and once I moved to the Usa, I knew I didn't want to give up teaching. So here I am! In these past years gained significant teaching experience for online and in person tutoring for all levels and ages. I use an entertaining, conversational and cultural approach when teaching. I have been loving teaching so much that I am in the process of writing a book for foreigners! Italian is my native language and I am always so excited and so proud of sharing it with you. In my opinion, you learn a language when you develop each skill individually, meaning: grammar, vocabulary, listening, writing, speaking and culture.When I first arrived in the United States two years ago, I learned how important cultural habits are in order to learn a language. After all, language is transmitted through culture. In my time spent doing this, I have discovered that learning a language is challenging. Fluency is not something you can buy. You need to work for it. I can promise you that at times, it will be hard and even boring. This is why my lessons are not only educational but also engaging. I will customize a curriculum for you based on your personal language goals and interests. I always use different media sources such as Youtube, videos I will create personally for you, books or recordings and podcasts to help you stay motivated. Feel free to contact me for any questions! I also offer group discounts! Grazie, Elisa Teaching courses: -Italian for tourists -Italian for life -Spanish for students (beginner, pre-intermediate, intermediate) -Italian culture Ciao! A presto !
