Stella is a really fantastic Italian teacher - really rich and varied lessons with lots of time to practise comprehension, speaking and writing, while covering a wide range of grammar too.
She's lively and animated and explains things really well, paying attention to the parts I found hard.
It was great to work through each topic and then use it to talk about things relevant to my life and work.
I highly recommend her.
I have greatly improved in confidence in speaking, reading and writing Italian and can now make conversation with colleagues.
Patient, effective and challenging tutoring
I have been having lessons with Stella for just over a month. In our first lesson, she listened to what I wanted to achieve from my lessons and has helped me to get a lot closer to achieving my goals. Her feedback has been helpful and the pace of the lessons has been appropriate - challenging yet supportive. Stella has been flexible with when and where to have lessons, and has provided appropriate resources. I feel like my Italian has improved a lot in a short space of time thanks to Stella.
Increased ability and confidence with understanding and use of Italian.
Stella has been teaching my two young children Italian, for about 10 weeks now, and I am so impressed with her approach and level of compatibility with my children. I thought that it would be a challenge to get my kids to sit still for five minutes let alone study and learn Italian - but Stella tailor-makes and plans her lessons to suit their age and personalities and they have learnt so much and are having lots of fun at the same time!
I can now converse in Italian with them which makes me very proud.
Thanks Stella! I will (and do) highly recommend Stella to anyone wanting to learn Italian at any level.
