I’ve studied Italian with Paola for a number of years. She is a caring, patient, non-judgmental individual with natural teaching ability who is genuinely interested in your learning. She is prepared and presents information in varied approaches permitting students to learn in ways best suited to them. This approach also allows students to learn an aspect of grammar, for example, that eludes them and then it clicks. She helps you differentiate being grammatically correct or expressing something that would be understood with the way something is expressed in Italian. She takes the extra step for you.
Paola also presents various aspects of Italian culture such as folklore, literature, music, film, poetry and even crossword puzzles that enhance not only learning the Italian language but enhance your appreciation of Italian culture be it historic or contemporary.
Paola’s teaching helped me live my dream of not just going to Italy and meeting family but being able to have conversations with them!
I highly recommend this teacher without reservation or hesitation.
