Solange is amazing as an instructor. As a native speaker she understands text book French as well as slang. She provides several options for ways to express a thought. She is easy to talk to and time passes so quickly. Definitely the best French teach I have had and I have had many.

Giuliana is a wonderful teacher and guide for Italian language and culture. I really enjoyed our small class and she managed our different levels of experience very gracefully. We all learned a great deal over the course of a year together and we miss her immensely!
Sam
Giuliana is the most patient and encouraging teacher that I have yet encountered. She truly strives to make Italian entertaining as well as simple. Prior to my lessons with her, learning a whole new language seemed to be a daunting task, as well as the seemingly insurmountable goal of losing my native accent while speaking. Through our online lessons, she has taught me grammar and a vast vocabulary that served me very well in my trip to Italy. If there is one teacher who can truly teach the language quickly and easily, it's Giuliana.

Giuliana is an extraordinary teacher and instructor who makes learning fun and exciting. She is patient and accommodating, and has a true knack and talent for making sure you truly understand the material. I highly recommend her

"I have been taking private Japanese classes with Emi S. for one year and a half. Before I started she asked me whether I wanted to focus on just the conversational side of Japanese or the complete knowledge of the language including kanji. For me it was all.

She is proud of her heritage and enjoys talking about Japan and her culture, which makes the class even more enjoyable. She is dedicated, enthusiastic and organized.

I am sure that with her help I will be able to meet my goal of one day passing the JLTP N1.

I recommend her for classes of any level."
