What do they think about me…

“I had never traveled outside the United States when my husband accepted his job in Italy. I sometimes get overwhelmed living here and learning a second language. Not only does Alessandra have extensive technical knowledge regarding the language but she somehow always seems to know what to say to keep me excited and motivated to learn and try. Learning a second language is hard and Alessandra gives me the confidence to keep trying! This is everything when you are new to a language:) “

“It has been a huge challenge for me combining this course with work, but I am very happy that I did not give up because I feel like I have improved a lot during these months. Now I can actually speak a little, it is crazy! And it is also thanks to you, you have been an awesome teacher Alessandra!”

“I think you do a fantastic job as the teacher. I truly do. Having been a teacher at a university myself – I can really see and appreciate your efforts. I very much appreciate you making us re-write our homework. It takes a lot from you, but is very useful for us who attend.”
