Italy is a magnificent country, and there's so much more to it than the large cities of Florence, Venice and Rome. Daniela spent 30 years of her life living in Florence and the surrounding countryside, and as an Italian native, she loves to provide her clients with personalized recommendations and unique excursion opportunities. For many people, traveling to Italy is a dream come true.
By learning Italian with her, you can avoid falling victim to some of the famous tourist traps, and you will get to enjoy an authentic Italian experience. Daniela is an Italy specialist who is enjoying a fresh start as a travel professional. She also works as an Italian teacher for some local schools, and loves to help her students planning study abroad experiences in Italy where they can immerse themselves in the culture and language of the country. She enjoys offering tips and advice to her clients and students, and helping them decide on the best places to go while on their trip.
While the big cities are amazing and should definitely be explored, Daniela also recommend stopping in small villages and towns along the way. This allows travelers to meet the friendly local people and enjoy the most delicious Italian food in the world. Given her expert local knowledge, she can tell her clients where to find the best real gelato and can also point out hidden treasures near some of the most popular tourist destinations.
Daniela wants her clients to do more than just make a photo stop at the Colosseum in Rome and pretend to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. She wants them to experience the Italian culture, interact with the local people and enjoy pasta and wine the way it was meant to be enjoyed.

I had taken a group lesson in Italian and I did not feel like I was progressing. Now after just four lessons with a new tutor it feels like I have progressed quite a bit. One of Daniela’s strengths is figuring out what the student knows and then coming up with a plan to get the student where they want to go. That is what we did on my first day with Daniela. In my last lesson (my fourth lesson) we worked on adjectives and some of the prefixes that can be used with them. Previously we have covered verbs (regular and irregular), prepositions and past perfect tense. This may sound like a lot but the more you learn the more things start fitting together. The key is being challenged to understand the rules of the language and then to put those rules into practice by speaking the language with a native speaker.
Another strength Daniella uses is her patience. As a student you can feel pressure and anxiety as you make the mistakes that students make and Daniella is very patient in correcting what you are doing and saying.
In short, Daniella has the ability to establish a productive and comfortable environment.
After an upcoming trip to Florence, Italy I look forward to pursuing more classes.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
