“Teresa is a very results oriented and practical teacher of Italian. She assesses the capabilities of every student very carefully to come up with a bespoke solution for each of her clients.

She delivers results by understanding her clients' current language skills, their available time, the ways in which they learn, together with their personality to find the unique balance of techniques to quickly improve their skills.

I worked with Teresa for several years and my Italian skills improved greatly. She helped me perfect many aspects of my Italian. Above all of that, she is a lovely person and a joy to work with…”

Board of Directors at ESCADA, formerly Chief Operating Officer, Burberry Group plc

“Teresa was a perfect fit to my language skills. As a beginning student of Italian, she was able to quickly assess how I learned and got me up and speaking in a very short period of time. 

What I remember and cherish the most however, is that Teresa created a safe environment for me to speak with her, and that gave me the confidence to use my Italian in real life everyday situations outside of the classroom. 

For me in particular, what separated Teresa from others is that she has an extensive background specifically in the language of fashion, and the terms that are used throughout the industry. I find this to be a true advantage for any prospective fashion industry client who is already working with italian product developers and factories, or clients looking to elevate their relationship with them. 

Learning another language is truly a gift, and Teresa is a master bestower of that gift.”

“Thank you so much for taking me on as your student. Your lessons were so helpful and interesting.

Now, as I am in Italy, I really appreciate your way of teaching me, which encouraged me to communicate with my Italian colleagues.

And you also took away the fear and shyness to speak.

Thank you again.”

“I left school good at sciences, but lousy at languages. After I secured a job in Italy at short notice Teresa agreed to give me a crash course in spoken Italian.

After just a couple of weeks I headed off to a new life, armed with a basic grasp of Italian grammar, a vocabulary of several hundred words and, most preciously, the confidence Teresa had inspired in me to know that it was all going to be OK, and that I would go on to master the language.

The subsequent 5 years of work in Italy were immensely rewarding and I remain very grateful to Teresa for giving me such a great start to my adventure.”
