Learning Italian online is more fun than what you thought!

As a linguist and a tutor, I understand the difficulties you encounter when learning another language. Above all, I personally know exactly how overwhelming it can be. Well, the good news is: it doesn’t have to be!

Learning should be fun, challenging in a good way, exciting and rewarding. Finally, I have the opportunity to share with you my unique approach which has been so popular in London for many years now.
I believe tradition translates into authenticity.

About me

I was born and bred in Italy till the age of 19. I moved in the UK in 1995 with broken English. After, a couple of years I applied to Kingston University and successfully achieve a degree in Spanish and French. After travelling over 31 countries working on board of cruise ships I came back to London and got a CLTA certificate for teaching modern languages to adults.

Driven by my passion for teaching my mother tongue Italian I combined my passion for cooking Nonna Lena’s recipes and developed an exciting teaching method, teaching Italian following my grandma’s traditional recipes.

I care about sharing my language and culture; I care about giving you the most authentic Italian experience ever so that you can enjoy learning from wherever you are, whenever you want.
