About Idilia

Ciao a tutti!

I am a native Italian speaker, experienced and bilingual.
I have been teaching Italian to students of all ages and backgrounds for many years now and I LOVE my job, it is pleasure to share my knowledge of my native language and culture with my students!

I graduated (Magna Cum Laude) from the “Università degli Studi di Pisa” (Italy) in 2006, and, after attending the "Corso di formazione per insegnanti di italiano L2" from the Istituto Linguistico Mediterraneo (Pisa, Italy) for the teaching of the Italian language as a second language, I started teaching Italian to non-native speakers (children, teenagers and adults alike) in Italy and, since 2009, in the United States.
In 2014 I obtained a Masters Degree in Foreign Language Pedagogy from the "Universita' per Stranieri di Siena" (Magna Cum Laude) and I hold both the "DITALS I" Certification [Certification in Italian Language Teaching Competence - Specialty: University Students] and the "DITALS II" Certification [Certification of Advanced Competence in Teaching Italian - All Target Students] from the "Universita' Per Stranieri di Siena" (Italy).

I am also available to teach lessons through the WyzAnt online platform if the commute to or from Chicago is problematic.

So don’t wait any longer, wherever in the world you are and whatever your goal is (school, work, travel or simple curiosity) contact me and let’s begin our incredible journey! :)

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
