Even today, we had a great conversation about education system. It was not easy for me explain concepts and my points of view but actually wasn't so hard. That because Paola leads me in a right way correcting me when I make mistakes and encouraging me to have a conversation. Everything in a relaxing atmosphere.

It’s always a lot of fun to speaking with Paola. We talked about witches, hotel horror stories and love stories :D She is super engaging and helpful as always. Thank you!

I love that Paola is not just running me through chapters in a book. She has been keeping things interesting by using different materials. But, even more importantly, she has incorporated into my lessons things I already know. It’s the best of both scenarios- practicing what I know, but adding in some new content. Truly enjoying my lessons with Paola!

Today, I completed my second lesson with Paola, and I've just booked my third. I have been studying Italian for a few years now on my own, but I would not consider myself to be at the intermediate level yet. Paola structured our class in such a way that she allowed me to use and practice what I have learned, but she also helped me stretch outside of my comfort zone. She paced the class well to my skill level. I am looking forward to continued lessons with her.
