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.
I've had many tutors who step in and try to fill the space, which is distracting. Sepideh allows these silences, which allows me to learn. She is patient, our sessions are conducted nearly entirely in Farsi, she only switches to English when absolutely necessary. She is a joy to work with and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
We really enjoyed our session with Anthony. Since he is a native English speaker who learned Italian on his own, he was very attuned to the needs of students learning a foreign language. He was prepared with worksheets and sample dialogues that we might use on our trip to Italy. He worked at a comfortable pace and was very patient. We would highly recommend him.
