I use a functional teaching approach: depending on your level and goals, I will create and set out a plan for you to get as much out of the lessons as possible. Lessons should be fun and the language will become more and more natural for you. The lessons will be integrated with extra material selected on the internet, videos, readings and conversations. I also teach small groups on a weekly basis, please enquire for the next course availability. I like to have occasional food evening, with Italian quiz and games. Or film afternoons and morning coffee groups. Even if you choose individual lessons, you will be invited to immersive events where you can practice speaking and listening as well as learning about the Italian culture.
I am a native Italian professional translator and have been teaching Italian to groups and to individuals for over 15 years. Whether you are studying Italian at GCSE, A-Level or at university, or you are just curious about this fascinating language and you are going on holiday to the Amalfi coast next year, or you are a business person who needs to understand a little bit more what your Italian counterparts say, I can help you develop your knowledge and ability in understanding and speaking the language. English is my second language, I have lived in the UK for 21 years, I have a degree in Philosophy and a Master of Arts in Translation Studies, I run a freelance business offering linguistic services and I am currently studying towards a PhD in Translation Studies.
Due to the current pandemic I can only offer virtual lessons on Zoom or Skype. I use the same didactic material as I would in person and my students really enjoy it.

Elisabetta is a very experienced and knowledgeable tutor. She is passionate about language and this shows through her teaching style. Elisabetta is extremely supportive and approachable. I would highly recommend Elisabetta!
I could not recommend Elisabetta enough. She supported the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust Library and Knowledge Service with translations of complex health literature through the peak of the COVID-19 Elisabetta did this on a volunteer basis. She is outstanding in her field.
I would recommend Ellie. I am so much more confident with my Italian after just a few lessons. I have always felt nervous to speak In case I wouldn’t be understood but practising with Ellie has given me a lot more confidence and I feel I am getting better.
