About Elena

GCSE and A levels native speaker tutor

Italian native speaker tutor and a graduate in Scienze Politiche at the Universita’ degli Studi di Firenze: I previously studied classics at the Liceo G. Galilei in Pisa.

I am qualified to teach foreign languages, I hold the OCN Diploma in Teaching Foreign Languages (2009) and the PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Life Long Sector) Diploma (2012), both obtained in London. I moved to the UK in 1996.

My lessons are strictly STUDENT CENTRED, and so is my teaching style, aimed at making as much progress as possible in the shortest time: basically aiming at makingmyself redundant in the shortest time possible! ;)

I see my role as a tutor as being a ‘language coach’, motivating and getting the best out of the student: ANYONE can learn to speak another language. I am here to guide you, encourage you, support you in your learning journey.

Whatever your motivation, school exams, work or other reasons, you CAN learn a foreign language: I’ll make sure you do! I combine various methodologies, drawn from academic experience and my practical experience of languages - I speak three fluently and so can you!

As a qualified Emotional Freedom Technique therapist I can also integrate in the language lesson various techniques to better memorise words and the Italian language and to free the subconscious from various fears associated to learning a foreign language.
