« I have been studying Italian with Mirella for 9 months. Mirella is an excellent professional teacher in all respects; she is encouraging but appropriately challenging. She is extremely well prepared, reliable and knowledgeable. Her gentle and encouraging teaching manner has enabled me to find learning Italian much less daunting, and her sense of fun and humour has made the learning process fun. Through her help my Italian contacts have commented on how well I now pronounce Italian. She demonstrates a thorough understanding of my learning needs, and is able to adapt easily to whether I need encouragement with conversational Italian, or help with more formal grammar teaching. I have found her to be a teacher of the highest standards and could not have wished more from a teacher. Quite simply, I could not recommend her highly enough. »
