I was lucky to find Gloria nine months ago, and it has been “un bel viaggo italiano” – a beautiful Italian journey – ever since. Gloria is a joy to work with. She is always energetic and funny, but also patient and well-prepared. She thoughtfully designs curricula that cover the essentials, adhere to your goals, and are enjoyable to complete. Gloria often claims she is a clown disguised as a teacher, and it’s definitely true. I look forward to every lesson because I know I will laugh, but also learn. As a result of studying with Gloria, today I am a confident Italian speaker who can comfortably hold conversations, arrange logistics, and enjoy shows and podcasts in Italian. I enthusiastically recommend Gloria as a language teacher!
