I knew a few words, and Daniela took it from there. I will be much more confident now in my speaking ability and pronunciation. She built off of what I already knew.

This phrase helped my friend and I so much as we traveled to Roma, Firenze, Parma, Lago de Como, and Venezia. After 6 lessons, my friend and I ventured to Italy with what we called ?survival Italian?. We learned the basics such as food, drink, buying things, ordering things, manners, and of course ?mi dispiace? (I?m sorry) all from Daniela which opened doors for us everywhere we went. The people we talked to were so excited that we were trying to speak Italian, that they helped us along every step of the way. Daniela also gave us insider information for appertivos, gelato, espresso (both of which if you pay more than 2E you are getting ripped off). My friend Megan and I strongly recommend Daniela for any traveling you may be doing to Italy. She even provided text support to us while in Roma! We love Daniela and Italia!! Thank you so much!

I was nervous about my first class but didn't need to be nervous at all - Daniela was a fantastic teacher that instantly made me feel comfortable and ready to work on my rusty Italian. We had a very natural conversation where Daniela made suggestions on grammar and vocabulary, then dived deeper into a few grammar exercises that she picked based on my weaker areas. Primarily I want to be able to have some nice conversations during my upcoming trip to Italy, so this conversational approach was perfect and I look forward to weekly lessons.

I had taken a group lesson in Italian and I did not feel like I was progressing. Now after just four lessons with a new tutor it feels like I have progressed quite a bit. One of Daniela?s strengths is figuring out what the student knows and then coming up with a plan to get the student where they want to go. That is what we did on my first day with Daniela. In my last lesson (my fourth lesson) we worked on adjectives and some of the prefixes that can be used with them. Previously we have covered verbs (regular and irregular), prepositions and past perfect tense. This may sound like a lot but the more you learn the more things start fitting together. The key is being challenged to understand the rules of the language and then to put those rules into practice by speaking the language with a native speaker. Another strength Daniella uses is her patience. As a student you can feel pressure and anxiety as you make the mistakes that students make and Daniella is very patient in correcting what you are doing and saying. In short, Daniella has the ability to establish a productive and comfortable environment. After an upcoming trip to Florence, Italy I look forward to pursuing more classes.
