“Learning a language is a beautiful gift everyone should treat himself with.
I know it seems hard sometimes, that’s why we’ll do it in a fun and relaxed environment.
No pressure, only learning while having fun!”

Elena Grossi

Tutor for Adults and Children

Elena was born in Rome, where she got a Bachelor’s degree in Intercultural Mediation with English and French.
After her Bachelor’s she obtained the Ditals I certificate to teach Italian as a foreign language.
She greatly enjoyed both the theoretical study and the teaching experience, so she decided to move to the UK to study how languages are acquired from a psychological perspective.
This resulted in her getting a Master’s in Developmental Linguistics at the University of Edinburgh,
the city where she currently lives and teaches, and that she deeply loves.
She taught Italian in a variety of settings, both in Italy and in the UK, and even on a cruise ship travelling around the globe!
She now lives between Edinburgh and Rome.
