Was born in Naples but moved to Le Marche when she was 7 years old.
She's 100% Italian but she's very interested in foreign cultures and languages. Ths't why she spent some years abroad and also speaks Russian, English and a bit of French. She loves reading, writing - she writes articles for on line magazines, fairy tales and nursery rhymes - playing piano and walking along the seaside.
Was born and educated in Toronto. Her family moved from Italy to Canada in the 1970's. That is one of the reasons why once she finished University she decided to go back to her roots and moved to Italy for a year and ultimately decided to live in 'the bel paese' indefinitely.
She's bilingual and loves all things Italian. She cannot imagine her life without her morning espresso at the "bar".

After years of classroom Italian, my progress seemed to stagnate and I was frustrated. Then I found Gate-away.com lessons through Skype. My teacher Elvira patiently guides me with supporting corrections on pronunciation and grammar, helping to alleviate my fears of speaking/understanding. The lessons include videos, music and current topics, which not only expand vocabulary, but provide conversational, writing and listening skills on relevant issues. I enjoy the moment a new lesson arrives to see what we will be learning next and the homework corrections are returned almost within hours, which is so gratifying! We have nearly 30 lessons behind us and I am finally feeling more confidence.
I am looking forward to the next private lessons and highly recommend this course to everyone. It is the most productive learning experience I have had.
Like everybody, I am a super busy lady but I also wanted to make progress with my Italian. What luck, I discovered the gate-away Italian course. Bingo!
I gave it a test run - first with 20 lessons- It sounds surely much at first ... but easily I established a rhythm of homeworks (compiti) to be done before each lesson and the teacher sends the corrected version back - still before your lesson. So you can learn so much through studying your own mistakes and discussing it in the lesson.
I love the weekly hour with my teacher Elvira. She helps me along PATIENTLY, she accommodates my changing needs from lesson to lesson, she gently nudges me along from week to week and encourages me to speak freely.
I love it so much that I have signed up for now 80 lessons.
I had always wanted to be able to speak the Italian language fluently. My pre-course and‘phrasebook’ skills were far from adequate. I therefore embarked on a series of lessons with Gate-away: one of the best decisions I have made. My tutor, Angela, has been marvellous and she is incredibly good at structuring my weekly Skype lessons, from my home in the north of Scotland, in a very patient, kind and humorous way, which is just what I need. My language skills have increased enormously and although I still struggle with my ‘verbs’ at times, I now feel far more able and confident and cannot believe the difference in such a short period of time.
I can thoroughly recommend Angela and the Gate-away language courses to anyone. Thanks guys.
I have been “studying” Italian for about two years, mostly just using the Duolingo app. While I found my vocabulary was slowly growing (with my inconsistent use of the app), I felt I needed something to help hold me accountable to the lessons. I came across the Gate-away offer and it just seemed to hit me at the right time. It has been incredibly helpful to hear the language spoken, and have to respond in the course of a conversation.
I’ve really enjoyed the chance to work with Angela, and am very appreciative of her patience! I’m ready to start the next 20 lessons.
The Italian course at Gate-away.com is great! Each week, the lesson is individualized to my skill level and interests by my instructor, Angela. She skillfully creates helpful and effective lessons that increase my learning — and they are FUN! Talking and reading the lesson together via Skype is a perfect way to learn the correct pronunciation and usage of words to improve fluency and conversational abilities.
My teacher is always willing to set our class time to accommodate my changing schedule.
I would easily recommend this course to anyone who is looking to improve his/her language skills.
I absolutely say that the course on Skype works very well. It is very easy to sit in your home and it just takes one hour of your day to get a lesson of high quality. Elvira is a really good teacher, the layout of the lesson is very good and it is very easy to send it and get it corrected in just a fee hours. I absolutely feel that I have improved a lot!
For me this is fantastic because in Sweden it is very difficult to find good Italian speaking teachers, it is also difficult to find people who speak Italian.
As I love study languages I know that it's very important talk and hear everyday the new language and not only study the grammar and the books. For me it's also important that my teacher does not speak my language (Portuguese).
I found all this with this course! My teacher is very patient and give me a lot of attention. She is always correcting me and after each lesson she send me all in a report and also exercises and videos. It is easy to be in touch with her. Does not matter if I use e-mail, Messenger, Whatsapp or Skype. She is always on line and answer my doubts. I am happy to have this opportunity!
In spring 2017 I happen to see the ad of the Gate-away.com offer to take Skype lessons to improve my Italian. Spontaneously I booked a test session and I am continuously taking weekly sessions since.
For me It is the absolutely perfect way to improve. I can chose time, frequency and speed. The lessons are designed to my personal requirements and needs. My Italian improved by approximately 50% after 10 sessions.
It is the most efficient learning experience ever.
Initially my wife and I were a bit sceptic about Gate-away.com course, but after a trial lesson by Skype and some email exchanges with the teacher, we thought “Why not”?
That was a very good decision! After a couple of months we are very enthusiastic about the lessons, our teacher Angela and the improvements we are making. Each lesson is composed flexible corresponding to our needs.
We decided to continue and bought a second package. And now we are hoping the Italians will notice the difference!
For two years I had tried everything I could to learn Italian. The course provided by Gate-away.com is the perfect solution for my needs. My instructor is knowledgeable and experienced and is flexible with my schedule. Our are like talking to a patient friend who has my best interests at heart. This makes me feel comfortable receiving corrections on my grammar and pronunciation and I have the chance to hear pronunciation from a native speaker while practicing my listening skills and expanding my vocabulary in a way that makes me feel like I‘m in a classroom in Italy. The worksheets are fun, engaging and relevant. I will always highly recommend this course to anyone.
We enjoy every minute of our weekly lessons and our teacher feels almost like a friend. It is a great and easy way to learn Italian. We are learning Italian in a very relaxed way.
A major benefit of one on one lessons is each one is tailored to suit my needs. We develop vocabulary and grammar, but in the context of my usual weekly interactions. This has been achieved by my tutor taking time to get to know me, and asking for my input into future lessons.
