Valentina, is a wonderful teacher, She gets me used to hearing the language, since much of the fluidity of a new language revolves around the ear and hearing, and pronouncing the new words. She has given me a language course with background, and a grounding in grammar; and helps me with the words and idioms the I will use when I am in Italy. I am extremely happy with my lessons.

As a beginner, I was very satisfied with my lesson. Valentina was very patient with me as well as being very helpful.

I didn't receive the help for which I had signed up. The 1st class she didn't have her computer and she said she wanted to just meet with me and discuss what we would learn. The second class was fairly productive, but she wasn't familiar with my newer version of AutoCad so we spend more time figuring out where to locate design items than learning how to modify them. The last lesson was a joke. The internet connection she used was simply to slow and I couldn't screen share or follow what she was doing.

I think this was the wrong way for me to get the help I needed.

We introduced ourselves and planned for what we would discuss in future lessons. However, she did not have her computer with her so we couldn't get into any details so I am withholding judgement until we have had a chance to work together

Valentina is such a talented language teacher! She really has a way of connecting you with the language so that it sticks in your mind. She helped me a lot with my pronunciation as well!

Not only is Valentina teaching me how to speak Italian, she is teaching me about culture, food, proper ways to say things and etiquette. She is wonderful!

I have been through 3 Italian lessons via Skype with Valentina and she has been wonderful! I have a tricky schedule, and she has been very flexible and patient with finding time for me and my many time changes. Her lessons are very clear and put together well and she is patient and helpful with her teachings. She will take extra time to make sure everything is clear and understood before moving onto the next topic. I can't wait to continue learning Italian with Valentina!

I have enjoyed my first Skype Italian lesson with Valentina. We spoke from dieci to undici. Much to learn. She offered to blend some ancestry vocabulary into the lessons, which meshes well with my prime motivation to learn.

Valentina is very personable and friendly, my husband and I are taking a trip to Italy next year and we wanted to learn mainly some basic words to get by, but she has helped us even beyond the basics. I recommend Valentina highly, you will not be disappointed.
