Hello, My name is Elvira, I am from Rome, Italy. I moved to the US 16 years ago and I have been teaching and tutoring Italian at all levels, from beginner/conversational to business/legal, ever since. I have a JD from University of Rome, “La Sapienza” and I am fluent in English, Romanian, Spanish and German. I am very passionate about Italy and my culture and I find there is no better way to share it than through teaching my language. I believe in fact that no language can be learned successfully without its context of culture and lifestyle. My teaching philosophy is very student-centered, customized, flexible, holistic. Students’ engagement is very important to me and it is achievable if the student has fun throughout the process. I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking and learning new languages. I hope to see you soon! Arrivederci a presto!
