When I decided to study Italian, I knew I wanted to start with a professional teacher. I have always found learning the fundamentals this way far more effective than other methods. I have worked with Gloria for almost 2 months. Throughout this time Gloria has always been incredibly supportive and patient with me. Her materials are high quality and are always used to review and cement new words and grammar. Gloria’s teaching style is very much designed to allow the student more control over the pace and content, rather than being dictated what you should know. I do not feel stressed or overly emotional when I work with Gloria. It has been very easy to build rapport and a professional relationship with Gloria. I intend to continue learning Italian with Gloria as a result of her efforts and her teaching style.
