I know that Donatella is an exceptional teacher. I have been studying Italian with her now for several months now. She has a great understanding of both the Italian and English languages. I am not just learning phrases that will aid me on my travels through Italy but I am learning to read, write, and speak with proper grammar. I feel that she has placed me on a path to bilingualism, something I find to be very exciting and rewarding.
Donatella is also very accommodating with regards to my busy schedule.
I think highly of Donatella.
I have been taking Italian lessons from Donatella for the past four months and the lessons have made a vast improvement in my comprehension and speaking ability. I had a lesson today and had a very natural conversation with Donatella-I highly recommend Donatella.
When I take a lesson with Donatella I completely feel myself, like I'm in Italy because her method of teaching and unique and real Italian accent. This is how my Italian has dramatically improved. Moreover she is a genuine graduated Italian teacher. Don't waste your time like I have done in the past with flight-by-night individuals who claim to teach Italian while they barely know few of their granpa slang words... Need to learn Italian? You need a real teacher like Donatella.
Donatella is a trustworthy teacher because her honesty and professionalism are evident from your first meeting. Donatella is committed to teaching Italian first and foremost. Her compensation for a one on one tutorial lessons is an incredible value.
I studied on Skype with Donatella three days a week before I took a month long trip to Italy and Sicily. My trip was so much more enjoyable because I could speak with the locals. Although I would consider myself as a modest level Italian speaker, the locals would always compliment of my efforts. The wonderful Italian people were always eager to help and it was so much fun to be communicating in another language.
Donatella was a wonderful teacher. She was always patient and ready to customize our lessons to my two favorite subjects: food and wine.
I could not recommend Donatella more enthusiastically.
