About Elena

Ciao!

My name is Elena and I am 100% italian. I am also a "Certified Teacher of Italian as second Language" (DITALS certification issued by University of Siena, Italy) with extensive experience.
I was born, raised and educated in Italy and I am in constant contact with my Country since my family lives there. I moved from Italy to the USA a few years ago.

I love teaching and my goal is to teach not only my language, but also about Italian's culture, lifestyle and history. I especially enjoy sharing with my students insider advises, tips and things to know about Italy that cannot be known by people that are not native Italians. This is especially useful for people that will visit my Country.

I have taught Math and Science for 10 years in Italian public middle schools. I graduated with a degree in Earth Science from the University of Naples (Federico II) and my undergraduate degree is “Liceo Scientifico G. De Lorenzo”.

My method is based on focusing on the individual student’s needs, be it to learn Italian culture, grammar and language structure (writing, listening, reading, speaking), conversational speech.

I’m comfortable working with students of all ages, grades and abilities and since I have worked with children for many years I’m very patient. I like for the student to feel comfortable and relaxed as well; my method and lessons are dynamic, warm and fun.

Great tutor and great personality

Elenea established an easy rapport with my daughter. They clicked very quickly which made my daughter receptive to her instruction. I feel Elena has a vast knowledge of the Italian language and prepared my daughter very well for the FALC (NYS-regents equivalent). My only regret is that we didn't find her earlier in the school year. My daughter really liked her.
