Anna has really helped me come to grips with grammar and helped me increase my range of vocabulary. I'm not a natural student and as a tutor she's made Italian great fun and kept me motivated to improve! I have no hesitation in recommending her as a Tutor.
My experience learning Italian was fantastic ! It was not too long but very efficient. She tailored a special course meeting all my needs and expectations. Along with her great experience she is an extremely inspiring person full of energy and passion for what she is doing :)
