Glen M.

Mina is an amazing tutor - He helped me prepare for my trip to Egypt and was very thoughtful about teaching me useful phrases. I’m usually not good learning languages but his teaching style made me feel comfortable and put me at ease. My best experience learning a foreign language ever - I highly recommend!
Dave C.

14 lessons

The book that she recommends and uses to teach Russian is an amazing book: it comes with an easy to use website that has exercises and games/quizzes/flashcards to review and learn. This is not my first foreign language I have learned and Maria, in combination with this book, makes it unbelievably simple to learn with a little bit of work compared to my previous school taught language. I highly recommend her. Helpful, kind, and an amazing teacher.
Ross H.

She made learning fun and didn't get on our case when we spoke English and was very encouraging to us even when we got answers wrong. I would wholeheartedly recommend Nikki to anyone learning Italian. She is Italian, breathes Italian and is a wonderful person, mother and each lesson was like being with a good friend. If we decide to continue on our quest to become fluent in Italian we will certainly continue with her.
