From my very first lesson Lucia made me feel extremely comfortable. It can be awkward having a first conversation with ANYONE, even in your own language, let alone a foreign language. But Lucia took all anxiety and nerves right out of me. She was thorough, attentive, fastidious, patient— and most of all simply a lovely person to speak with! She is clearly very intelligent and kind—both equally important and appreciated. I am VERY excited for our next lesson, highly recommend!
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.
