Manuela is an absolutely fantastic Italian teacher. She's incredibly well organised and brings elements to the lesson that I haven't experienced before making learning Italian much more of in-depth. I learnt a lot from Manuela and my Italian improved hugely. I asked Manuela for homework so that I could keep practicing in between our lessons, she did this easily and also sent everything that we'd gone through on the previous lesson so that I could look at it all again. She's friendly, efficient, thorough, extremely knowledgable, professional, very organised and I consider her to be a teacher of a very high standard. I feel that no matter your level of Italian, she would be the perfect teacher. Very impressed and very grateful that I had the opportunity to be taught by Manuela. Grazie.

Manuela is an excellent Italian teacher and I am enjoying our classes very much! She makes online classes and discussions simple and satisfying to navigate, and is very organized with lessons and learning materials. She is patient, pleasant, and accommodating and I feel that I am advancing quickly in my Italian language comprehension, grammar, and ability to communicate through our classes. I would strongly recommend Manuela as an online Italian teacher!

Very helpful!

I reached out to Manuela a few months ago in order to be more comfortable understanding family members speaking Italian. In a few months we have covered many different situations and conversations that a common traveler would find themselves in. I feel, even now only a couple of months into once-a-week lessons, that I could navigate my way throughout social situations better. Manuela is very helpful throughout the week if I have questions in between lessons, and often takes a bit of extra time at the end of each lesson to make sure I feel comfortable with the information I just learned! She also sends very helpful resources, texts, and videos to make sure that as a student, I am exposed to different types of speakers and content :) Grazie Manuela!

I started with Manuela a couple of months ago and I couldn't be happier. She is clear in her instruction, patient and encouraging. She has also been accommodating when I have needed to change our scheduled lessons. I highly recommend Manuela.

Wonderful Italian tutor! Always organized and creates lessons customized to your specific needs. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor to get me to where I need with the Italian language, highly recommend.

I've been taking weekly private lessons with Manuela for three months now, and she is wonderful. She's smart, funny, organized, generous, and has always planned out the lesson we're about to do. She's prompt with scheduling, so it's easy for me to plan my week. The resources she uses are top notch. I've taken Italian with several different teachers, and she is, by far, the best. Grazie, Manuela!

I am writing this review as a recommendation for Mrs. Manuela Adragna as my Italian Language private teacher. I have known Manuela for almost two years where we met here in Dubai. I found her to be consistently professional and passionate to teach the Italian Language, she has been pleasant and tackling my request with dedication and a smile. Manuela did put a great effort into the quality of her way of teaching and she always prepared for each lesson in advance. Thank you Manuela and all the best.

Su esfuerzo por enseñar, su dedicación y su profesionalidad hicieron que consiguiese superar mi torpeza para los idiomas. Hace de su trabajo por la enseñanza algo personal que supera muchos límites que tenemos ciertas personas por aprender un idioma nuevo.

I first met Manuela in Naples Florida approx 10 years ago. I took lessons with her off and on for approx 1-1.5 years. She was always prepared and worked hard to keep the lessons interesting and constantly advancing. Now that she is in Toronto, I plan to restart lessons with her. Highly recommended.
