Donatella is fantastic. I have been trying to learn Italian on my own and she was quick to identify areas needing improvement. She tailors the lessons to how I need use the language for work and research.Apr 1, 2020Verified
Donatella is great! I engaged Donatella to learn Italian once and for all so this will be a long term commitment. She is fair and very easy going. But, she will put you through the necessary steps to learn the language based on your commitment level. There are no short cuts. Grammar rules and articles are especially confusing if English is your first language. But, she makes it as easy as possible to understand and speaks to you in a thick Italian accent so you begin to pick up on the pronunciations and mannerisms to mirror the conversation. I'm so glad I came across her and will continue to work with her throughout my studies!Mar 2, 2020Verified
