I taught Italian and I was very pleased by what my students learned and how they progressed. I focus primarily on dialogues as I believe that students can learn better and get a more confident approach to a foreign language.

Girl Scouts of America
Aug 2014

It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.

Today we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

We're the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.

Cecilia is extremely personable and joyful. She is a gifted and thorough instructor. Her lesson was systematic, clear, and easy to understand. I am so excited to be taking lessons with Cecilia and can't wait for my next one.

A wonderful first-day experience. Being the nervous introvert that I am, she put me right at ease. I look forward to our next lesson

The best thing about Cecilia is her enthusiasm! When you have a teacher who is warm, happy, and excited to teach it certainly makes it easier to learn! You can tell she loves kids. Highly recommend.

We love Cecilia! Teaches with such passion! She was always able to find everyday uses to teach her lessons, for example counting money. Such a keeper!

Grazie, Cecilia! For years I've wanted to learn Italian, and learning from a real Italian was not only educational, but genuinely fun as well!

Cecelia has advanced knowledge of multiple languages, which gives her such advantage as a teacher. She is very relaxed and flexible with regards to when we talked about getting together for leasons. I highly recommend her!

Cecilia is a fantastic Italian teacher. She is easy to talk to, patient with her students and is fabulous at really making sure her students GET the language (proper pronunciation included) instead of just teaching from a text book. We love Cecilia!

Three kids with various interests, I was so excited to come across Mrs. McCormack's Italian class. Her flexibility with my daughter's schedule and excitement in teaching Italian was exactly what we needed. You are amazing.

I have always been interested in taking Italian. With a busy life, it's been hard to get anywhere for lessons. I came across Cecilia's profile and decided to give it a try. It was such an amazing fit! She is an incredible instructor and we were such a good fit. I am so thankful for her and am impressed by how quickly my Italian has progressed in such a short amount of time. She is the best!
