My wife and I had 10 lessons with Francesca to help us get ready for a trip to Puglia later this year. She assessed what we needed and tailored the sessions to suit our particular needs (tourist interactions), while also challenging us to understand the structure of the language. Francesca is very patient and encouraging with clients who are not easy learners, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for tutoring. Ciao!

I have been taking lessons with Francesca for about five months now and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to speak Italian. She structures lessons around your strengths/weaknesses, encourages casual conversation in Italian and is really patient when something is difficult. After each class she emails me assignments for me to complete and send back to her for her to mark. This has been super helpful. I've seen a huge improvement in my abilities. She is also a really enjoyable person to talk to and knows a lot about Italian culture. I never get bored and look forward to each lesson. Highly recommend!

I’ve been working with Francesca for several months now. I’m an adult learner who does not have an ear for languages… but Francesca has been super patient with me and moved our lessons according to my ability (and availability!). I’ve learned so much more than I could have on my own (or with an app) and I’m so grateful to have a native speaker who is non-judgmental, patient, and forgiving! I highly recommend Francesca if you want to learn to speak Italian!

It has been two months since I started Italian lessons with Francesca. Francesca is very professional, has a calming presence and pleasant personality, and genuinely cares about my progress. She took the time in our first class to understand what my learning goals were as well as to evaluate my level of Italian. After each class, she emails me additional material that she identifies I need help with. To meet my goals, Francesca has incorporated in the lessons knowledge about Italian culture and customs. It has been a great experience and I am very happy with my progress so far. I also appreciate the effort and time that Francesca spends outside the one-hour class. I would highly recommend Francesca to anyone who is looking for an Italian language teacher.

Fantastic Teacher of Italian!

I have been taking Italian lessons from Francesca for six months now. I started as a beginner with some basic vocabulary I learned on my own. Francesca was quick to assess where we should focus the lessons, inquired as to how much time I wanted to spend in developing these skills, as well as what I wanted to get out of learning Italian. She worked at my pace (as a beginner) and was fantastic in providing me with the right direction - what to focus on and why….a tailored approach. She is 100% reliable, always on time, and ready to teach. I would HIGHLY recommend Francesca to anyone, at any age or level who wants to learn a new language!

I've been taking Italian lessons from Francesca since September of 2022. My parents were Italian but I was born in Canada. I wanted to improve my level of Italian. Francesca has helped me improve my speaking, reading and writing skills. We've done a variety of exercises to improve these skills. We are currently reading a book in Italian to help with my reading ability. I would recommend Francesca if you're looking for a Italian teacher.

I have been taking Lessons with Francesca for a few months now. Francesca is a wonderful teacher. Shes calm and articulate and moves the lessons a long at the right amount of pace. Learning a new language can be very difficult and she has made it an enjoyable process. Her lessons are tailored perfectly for me and this keeps the classes exciting and fun. My confidence in using Italian outside of classes is building and I look forward to our lessons each week.

My 7 year old daughter was interested in taking beginner Italian lessons so she could speak to her grandparents. She immediately liked her lessons with Francesca from the first class. She looks forward to her weekly classes with excitement. Francesca does an exceptional job preparing lessons in advance, using visual aids and songs to help my daughter have fun and engage in new topics. My daughter has done incredibly well during her few months with Francesca and she looks forward to continuing Italian classes with her. HIGHLY recommend Francesca to anyone looking to learn or improve their skills. It's never too early or too late to learn Italian! Thank you Francesca.

I have had seven lessons with Francesca, thus far. During our introduction, on-line meeting, I knew I had made the right choice for my tutor. As a self-motivated learner, we have managed very well to incorporate and work together to come up with some interesting and fun-filled language learning tools. Francesca is very patient and easy to work along side. It is my hope that with her fabulous personality and teaching skills, by the time I arrive in Italy, I will be well versed in the Italian language. Most of all we have fun! Thanks Francesca!
