Everyone has an individual way of learning and my job is to provide the best possible way for each person to learn.

Daniela helped my son with his Pre-U Italian oral.
Her knowledge of what the examiners are looking for and her enthusiasm and encouragement were outstanding. My son prepared a much more sophisticated topic with her help and most importantly, gained immense confidence from their interaction.

Daniela has been teaching our daughter Italian at A2 level for the past 6 months. Her enthusiasm is infectious and level of professionalism exceptional,which was matched by her genuine concern that her pupil learns and achieves results to the highest level of their ability. I would have no hesitation in giving Daniela the highest commendation and recommendation
both as a person and teacher.

L
Lydia

I don't doubt that my interest and determination to study Italian at University has stemmed from the enjoyment of her lessons. She is a truly remarkable teacher giving me the confidence to pursue such an enjoyable subject further. Daniela also tailors each of her lessons to her students, something that I have found so vital in improving my Italian over the last two years. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Anastasia

I found the lessons I had with Daniela extremely useful when preparing for my A2 Italian exam. She always tried to teach me more sophisticated sentences and vocabulary to improve my written essays and my spoken Italian, which helped me to achieve a higher grade and have a place at Oxford. Having lessons over Skype meant I could practise my pronunciation in preparation for my oral exam. I would recommend her to anyone taking Italian at A-Level.

Caroline

I had unending support from Daniela who is always striving to help you improve, and going over and above what is asked for in order to do further helpful research for you.
Due to extensive cultural and historical knowledge, she is able to cover all aspects of a language course and she is always just an email away to help you with queries outside of tutoring hours!

Daniela tutored our son in both Latin and French in preparation for The Challenge which is the Westminster Scholarship exam. My son was coming from a school which did not prepare students for Common Entrance so we were working for it independently. One of the things we discovered through looking at past papers was that the level of Latin and French demanded by Westminster for this exam was very high and this is where Daniela was invaluable.

We contacted Daniela quite late, with only a couple of months to go before the exam.She had a lot of ground to make up and she worked tirelessly but also built up my son's confidence in these two subjects immensely. She was simply fantastic - I would say a godsend - and I honestly feel that without her he would not be in the extremely fortunate position he is in today - holding a confirmed offer for a place at Westminster School.Thank you Daniela.

Annamaria

We asked Daniela to come in and help when our daughter was struggling with A level Italian. Her unceasing support, commitment and enthusiasm have been wonderful. The early problems with the language have been more than overcome, and Daniela's help with the literature preparation for the exam has been enormous. She has consistently provided materials, and sensible work plans, and made sure that our daughter was completely ready for anything that could come up in the exam. We can't thank her enough.

Meg

I highly recommend Daniela as as Latin teacher.
She prepared me for my GCSE Latin exam from scratch as an external student for two years, every Saturday with punctuality and professionalism as well as a positive attitude to learning. I did learn a great deal without finding it too stressful.
Latin enhanced my life and education and I will treasure the knowledge Daniela shared with me.
