About Idilia


Bio

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)...

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! :)

Idilia is awesome!

Really great teacher who has made a huge difference in my daughter's understanding of Italian. Super flexible and incredibly nice!

Laura, 12 lessons with Idilia

Molto bene!

Wow! Idilia's teaching style really works for me. Great balance of seriousness, patience, time management, fun and flexibility for anyone's starting level. I am especially pleased that Idilia is a native Italian speaker. This authenticity of her speech and explanations add greatly to my professional learning experience.

Ray, 5 lessons with Idilia

Encouraging and Intuitive Tutor!

Idilia has been working on helping me improve my listening and speaking skills. She does this by challenging me to be a risk taker and guiding me to hearing the sounds of the Italian language more accurately. She encourages me to speak and push through my sentences even when I don't know all the words. Idilia is extremely positive. She has taken the time to identify my areas of weakness, and has used my strengths to build on them and grow with the holes in some of my learning over the years. I am so grateful for Idilia's lessons. I look forward to our sessions each week!

Fantastic and Fun Tutor

Idilia is an enthusiastic and patient tutor who makes lessons fun and interesting. She's always prepared and teaches to your level. I would highly recommend her.

Lauren, 8 lessons with Idilia

Idilia is great!

She was very helpful as I prepared for an exam, very patient and had some great ideas about how to study! I would recommend anyone to her!

Jennie, 3 lessons with Idilia

Eccellente!

Idilia was wonderful! She is not only a native speaker, but one who understands the art of teaching in a way that is fun and rewarding. She gave me confidence and lots of handy techniques that were useful during my recent trip to Italy. I'm looking forward to scheduling my next lesson with her!

Marilyn, 28 lessons with Idilia

Patient tutor that makes learning a new language fun!

My lessons with Idilia have been so helpful! She's funny and such a great tutor. I already feel more prepared for my trip to Italy this summer!

Samantha, 7 lessons with Idilia

Great first lesson. 10 min. early, patient, an educator.

I felt great about being capable to learn. Idilia adjusted to my learning abilities rather than push the curriculum down my throat in an hour. Asked about my goals and the reason as to why I want to learn Italian. My concern was "Can I learn?" and now I feel "She can teach me!"
