Testimonials from the Students
There are dozens of reviews of the exemplary work of all our teachers. Our site simply does not have the space to post all the reviews here. For this reason, we have posted here several of the reviews which have been sent to us. However, if you require a review of any of our other teachers, we can happily provide it to you.
There is a wide selection of Italian teachers in Moscow, but despite this, for a long time I was unable to find a real professional amongst the native speakers. Everyone knows that much depends on your guide in the interesting world of foreign languages, the person who will strengthen your desire to delve into the most complicated grammatical peculiarities and will help you enrich your speech with beautiful and correct turns of phrase. How I’ve gotten lucky! After two years of studying my favourite language at different centres I took up individual lessons with Chiara! She speaks Russian fluently and can therefore understand the mistakes her students make due to their native language. I have always been very pleased with the variety in materials (she provides not only textbooks, but also newspaper articles, audio, and video) which she uses in the lessons with detailed explanations of the subtleties of the Italian language. Already I have begun to feel notice significant progress! After Chiara left Russia, I decided to continue studying with her, namely in order to prepare for the CELI exam, but through Skype. Lessons are, as before, intensive, entertaining, but with an emphasis on writing, review of various subjects, retelling situations and practising pronunciation. Working with Chiara I really appreciate how she responds quickly to all my questions and difficulties that arise in my individual work, how she carefully checks, corrects, and elaborates upon the written texts, and during our lessons points out my mistakes to me. I am happy to recommend this energetic, sensitive teacher who cares about the success or failure of her students, to those who value the quality of the learning process and are aiming towards achieving a certain result!
It is really interesting to take lessons with Amalia! I have taken in three lessons in all and I already feel that my knowledge level has gone up. I like her teaching method, as she provides conversational speech and also teaches correct pronunciation, allowing me to already better understand Greek films and songs. I have searched for a long time for a teacher with whom it would be this comfortable to take lessons. I gave myself the goal of learning Greek, and with her, I am sure I will achieve this goal.
I have been taking lessons with Chiara for around three months. She has a very responsible approach towards teaching, always prepares materials for the lesson and corrects my speech effectively while managing to write down all corrections,which is convenient for when I am reviewing my mistakes. And she is herself a very pleasant person. 🙂 Thank you, Chiara!
I’m really happy with my lessons with Kate. Kate has excellent pronunciation, she loves the English language and teaches it with pleasure. While she allows a lot of time for practising conversation during our lessons, she does not ignore grammar. She always speaks with me in English, which is very important for me. At the same time, Kate speaks Russian well, which can be very useful. Most importantly, she explains things well. I take English lessons twice a week and even after a short period of time I am already noticing results!
My daughter is seven years old. At the moment we are living in Belarus. In order to help my daughter not forget her second native language and to learn the rules of Greek, I began to look on the internet for a teacher and native speaker of Greek so as to take lessons through Skype. I was not yet certain, at that point, about this form of study. We had concerns about how our child would receive information through the camera, how she would react to a remote teacher during the lesson, and how the teacher would themselves be…
Fate granted us the opportunity to get to know Amalia. Our first conversation satisfied me, but I still had doubts with regards to how my daughter would receive information through Skype. I was pleasantly surprised to find that lessons through Skype can give such great results. My daughter really loves her lessons with Amalia, and she even does her homework happily! From the third lesson, I left my daughter to her lesson with Amalia without fears.
Amalia is a very considerate teacher and she is able to find a common language with children and deliver the material in an interesting way. She teaches with love and she is strict, but is always smiling. We even became friends, and we are looking forward to meeting in Greece when we go on vacation to see my husband!

Chiara is a remarkable young woman and a wonderful teacher! Lessons with her take place in a relaxed atmosphere and the material is easy to take in. Everything is forgotten as you become fully immersed in the atmosphere of this beautiful country and language! It is truly effective! The conversations on various topics and the interesting exercises are a real plus. Detailed study of grammar is handled with apparent ease. I admire the fact that at the same time as she is teaching the lesson through Skype, Chiara manages to write down in chat the phrases said by the student, correcting their mistakes. Later, after the lesson is over, you can open the chat history and study the material in which you made mistakes. It’s unbelievable how much it helps! I recommend her to anyone who is interested in raising the level of their Italian, and in particular the level of the conversational language. After a lesson with Chiara is over, you are in a great mood, with a smile on your face and a desire to speak Italian! Grazie mille, Chiara! Sei super 😉
I am studying Chinese at the University of Turin (Italy) and with Geng through Skype. Thanks to Geng, my level in Chinese has quickly grown. Geng has a huge amount of materials and exercises for Chinese grammar and vocabulary, and she selects individual homework for each student depending on their needs. In addition, Geng is a very pleasant person, and her lessons pass in an entertaining way. If you need help learning Chinese, get in touch with Geng!

I want to tell you about my teacher, Chiara. When studying a language, the most important is not ability or the time you are willing to spend achieving the desired results. The most important is the specialist who is leading you to your goals. I began studying with Chiara as part of a small group , and then, when she left Russia, my lessons continued through Skype. I was skeptical towards the idea of lessons through Skype but I really didn’t want to lose this teacher. And I was not misled – there are many advantages to studying through Skype as well: you don’t need to run off anywhere after your lesson, your lessons take place in a comfortable environment, and most importantly, these are individual lessons. Individual lessons are twice as effective as group lessons, I can already see! And now about Chiara. She is a teacher sent from heaven: she is not simply a native speaker, she knows how to teach people how to converse to understand the structure and grammar. Chiara employs her own teaching method, using contemporary Italian textbooks which have been developed specially for teaching foreigners. She is demanding, not only with regards to her students, but also with regards to herself: I have not met Italians with such a string work ethic although I need Italian for work and am in daily contact with them. I can say that I am learning Italian thanks to this specialist. And I heartily recommend Chiara to those who want to get results: believe me! With her, you’ll get them! Buon studio a tutti!
Good day. I have been studying with Amalia for several months now. My interest in Greek is related to the fact that for half of the year I live and work on the island of Crete. My work does not require a knowledge of Greek (when needed I use English), but I wanted to begin studying Greek in order to become further immersed in this country that I love. When I began to look for a teacher on the internet, I saw many ads offering Greek lessons, but all the teachers were Russians who had lived for years in Greece, and my goal was to find a native speaker. For this reason I was very happy when I found Amalia. She knows several foreign languages, among them Russian. She doesn’t speak Russian perfectly (in my view this is, in principle, impossible), but she has enough of a command of the language that I can easily understand her. Lessons with her are very entertaining, she selects materials for each lesson carefully, and always prepares interesting exercises. I don’t perceive my lessons with her as work or study. For me, it is a way to relax, a hobby. I am pleasantly and, most importantly, usefully passing my time. I think that a large role is played here, not only by Amalia’s professional but also her human qualities. She is a very pleasant, gentle, and kind person, and she is always calm when explaining the material to me several times if I don’t understand something. If you want learning a foreign language to not be hard work, but for it to be a pass-time from which you derive pleasure and that you look forward to with impatience, then I recommend studying with Amalia. The first lesson is free, so you can always refuse further lessons. But personally, it didn’t even enter my head to refuse. After the trial lesson I immediately registered for the next lesson.
I’d like to share my feelings about about my studies and to thank my Italian teacher, Lara. Through the course of my lessons, I have come to see several positive outcomes. First of all, these are individual lessons at a time that is convenient for me. But the most important thing is that these lessons have augmented the level of my ability. As I am not a beginner Italian student, it was very important to me to find a teacher who was a native speaker. And it seems to me that I have been very lucky in finding Lara. She is a very open person and it is apparent right away that she wants to pass on to others the skills that she has mastered. The lessons are very informative. As she is a native speaker, Lara gives me a lot in the way of new vocabulary, and she presents the grammar material really well. Of course, conversation with her aids in the development of my conversational Italian, the level of which has significantly done down due to a lack of practice. It is with great pleasure that I express my thanks to her for the wonderful lessons and recommend Lara to anyone interested in studying Italian!
