Build confidence and have many new conversations in English
Is English stopping you from building a future because you aren’t comfortable speaking or are afraid you won’t understand?
Do you worry about advocating for yourself in stressful situations?
Do you worry that your English is affecting your job or relationships--even though you use English at work, in social situations, or possibly live in an English-speaking country?
Speaking is something you have to practice. But not the way you think.
You need to become confident talking about a set of topics that matter in your life. To do that, you need reading, listening practice, cultural understanding, and a chance to practice speaking about them with a supportive teacher--before you’ll be confident in real-world conversations.
At Clear Lingo you'll work toward fluency and confidence in English one topic at a time.
I feel safe and
My husband and I were scared we would have an accident in a new country and not be able to communicate and advocate for ourselves. It also felt bad when I didn’t understand people. Chiara helped me have more communication with strangers. I understand people and can speak in daily life - at the doctor’s office or when I do chores. I can have conversations with our nanny, watch movies in English, understand song lyrics, and read leveled books. I feel safe and happier now. I can continue to help my family.
I put my fear aside to achieve the goal
I feel grateful, grateful for the opportunity, grateful to be able to make mistakes as many times as necessary until I can get it right. I could put my fear aside to achieve the goal. It was a more than wonderful experience. I don't even have words to express how much my English evolved. I remember the first class where I could barely speak about where I lived. Today I can talk about my neighborhood and my favorite places. This is rewarding.
It motivated her to learn new vocabulary

I was searching for a teacher for my wife, and upon having an initial lesson with Chiara, it was obvious that she is the perfect choice. Chiara approaches her lessons very professionally. She found interesting topics for my wife to explore. One recent example could be the food recipes - my wife was supposed to cook a dish and write down a recipe for it as the people usually do online. My wife really liked this, it was very interesting for her and motivated her to learn a new vocabulary. Overall Chiara really cares about her students and pays a lot of attention and puts a lot of effort into helping them to learn English language - and the US culture as well.
Hi, I'm Chiara!
I know that you are here because English is necessary for daily life in the U.S. I help immigrants and newcomers speak English in a safe, low-stress way so they can go on to have many conversations.
I struggled to speak to people when I moved to a foreign country too. I know what it is like to have fears that get in the way of learning. I enjoy helping my students discover their true obstacles - sometimes we have to look inside to discover why we are stuck.
All of the lessons were extremely relevant
I was too afraid to speak...I also had a grammatical deficiency which made it very difficult for me to build dialogue. Today I feel less nervous when speaking English. I have made significant improvements in grammar and speaking skills. Chiara’s lessons are perfect for anyone who needs to develop their confidence in speaking and overcome speech blocks. One thing I would like to highlight is her dedication to the student in customizing the class according to needs. All of the lessons were extremely relevant.
