Who I am

My name is Laura Riccioni Pilgaard. I am Italian, married to a Danish citizen and have three children. I have lived in Denmark for 5 years.

Graduated from Cattolica in Milan in Modern Foreign Languages ​​and Literatures, I’ve been teaching Italian to foreigners since 1986. I live in Samarate (VA). I adapt my teaching method to the needs of the student with whom I always have a good relationship, given my sunny and sociable nature. I am also available to teach remotely, on Google Meet platform.

I like teaching, I like relating to others, I find it important to put my talents at the service of others. I think I was born with a vocation for teaching. The students are always happy with me and there is an open dialogue between me and them because it is important to listen to others and meet their needs. As a professional, I prepare the lessons following a schedule to get to the goal. I'm sure you will be happy with me!


My certifications and experiences

Higher Diploma: scientific high school diploma

Specialist Degree: Four-year degree in Modern Foreign Languages ​​and Literatures (old system) at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan.

Other qualification: CAE certification (Cambridge Advanced English Certificate)

Various extended stays abroad, in England, Wales, USA and Denmark.

Other professional experiences:

Commercial use of Italian and English language in various companies.

Language teaching in both high school and middle school, teaching adults and companies, many years of experience in online language teaching.



In this period, I'm using the online class a lot through the Google Meet platform. The lesson is always built around the needs, age, and level of the student. In general, the lesson is divided into reading, listening, grammar and conversation modules, so we can start with a text from which we can deduce grammar rules and a topic to comment and talk about. My lessons are aimed at middle school, high school, university students but also adults. Furthermore, having worked for years in the commercial office, I can give lessons in Business Italian.
