Gina is very flexible with her teaching approach. She meets me at my level. She slows down when I may not be grasping a concept and speeds up to keep me engaged.
I would whole-heartedly recommend her!

Gina was great for our first lesson. Very knowledgeable and does not try to overwhelm you with too much information. I am looking forward to my future lessons.

Gina's lesson was great. Her teaching style is interesting and conversational. I feel like I'm learning Italian better than I would be just from an online course or a classroom setting.
