Hi there, quiet language learner
I’m Elena, introvert, grammar geek and proud Ravenclaw. :)
I help introvert, highly sensitive and quiet learners to make language learning into a tool for self-care and to keep anxiety out of it.
Together, we are going to use the power of reflection and creativity to find some relief in darker days, through language learning.
I chose this path because I believe that language learning shouldn’t be anxiety-inducing when it can be a way to unwind.
Here at Hitoritabi, we embrace slow learning, imperfection and consistent practice.
We kindly stretch our comfort zone to expand our language learning playground and embrace a study routine that feels good.
So get in your pyjamas and grab a cup of tea. Welcome!

On the blog, I share my experience as an introvert, highly sensitive and anxious language learner and my tips to make language learning into a tool for self-care.
What my students say:
Learning a language can be challenging and at times frustrating and anxiety-inducing, but Elena has a very encouraging teaching style and is always patient and upbeat.

Luck is finding someone who can help you, teaching but also supporting you through those moments of doubt I think we all go through. Thank you Elena-sensei!
