Hello! My name is Elena and I come from Italy. The study of foreign languages and linguistics was my first love. After some years committed in social work, I decided to take up my old passion for languages! That's why I decided to become a tutor on LiveXP and share thoughts and knowledge with people interested in learning Italian! Italian is my native language, I have a good knowledge of English and Portuguese (C1 CEFR level in all passive and active abilities) and I wish I could improve my French and German. I graduated in Foreign Languages and Literatures at the University of Bologna, my dissertation in Portuguese linguistics was awarded with distinction (110/110 cum laude). During my studies at University, I worked as an intern and then a tutor for a tutoring centre based in my hometown (Ferrara, Italy), where I had the opportunity to support Italian students - from highschool and University - and adults to learn English and Portuguese, and foreign students and adults to learn Italian. For the last 6 years, I worked in a women's centre, where I had the opportunity to support low-qualified migrant, asylum-seeking and refugee women to learn Italian as a L2. In particular, I conducted specific language trainings for migrant women with a low educational background, aimed at improving their social and professional inclusion. Such an experience helped me develop new strategies to teach Italian in a more conversational, context-specific and experiential way. Due to my experience I feel particularly skilled to tutor students who want to improve their speaking in Italian, as I usually engage in conversation activities during my classes, as well as learners moving from their country and in need to improve their skills related to everyday life in Italy.
