I’ve been a student under Bella and it has really helped me a lot positively. She has really helped in improving my spoken English and made my essay writing as good as I could ever imagine. I fully recommend her to anyone who is serious and wants to get better in English language.

Bella was my english professor while at the ISC at University of Sussex. She was extremely engaging, sincere and helpful. Although I am a native speaker, she made sure to give me extra projects to ensure I was getting as much out of the class as possible. Bella is a top notch professor and I recommend her to anyone!

It was a pleasure to have been taught by Bella over the course of the year in the University of Sussex. I especially admire her tenacity, patience, and flair for being able to communicate with both native and non-native speakers alike. With the guidance of Bella, I've grown to be more confident and well-versed in all forms of academic English. I'd definitely recommend Bella to the rest of the students on Superprof!
