I had a special time working with these amazing clients
and I am grateful for their valuable feedback.
Helps me grow and improve

Anyway thank you again for your great sessions over the past year and thanks to Paola I am now a convert to meditation!

-Member of Pilates with Lucy who joined my meditation sessions on Monday evenings since the very beginning

I worked with Paola as volunteer sales assistant at the British Heart Foundation. She was wonderful to work with, always very friendly, and encouraging of her peers. I learnt a lot from her in how she interacted with the consumers and welcomed new members to the team. I was very privilege to have had the opportunity to both get to know her and work with her. She would be a great asset to any team.

It would be too limiting to call Paola a “coach”. She is much more than that. Paola translates my thoughts from Italian into English, supports me in both my communication and wine presentations for work with the right boost of self-confidence and optimism during our sessions. She is sensitive and benevolent. I love Paola

Ms Francesi is a professional language teacher who adapts to any given situation to a high standard. Paola has risen to the COVID situation and challenged the internet to a new way of learning. I have personally been driven with her help to learn Italian through her online classes, which are adaptable to suit my needs. I would thoroughly recommend Paola to anyone wanting to learn a new language.

I have known Ms. Francesi for a couple of years as a line manager (I was School Director at the school where she worked as an English Teacher) Paola proved herself to be a skilled teacher and a valued member of the team. She has shown strong linguistic ability coupled with a focus on the students and their progress. She has proven herself able to adapt to help students of all backgrounds and levels to achieve their learning goals. As a team member she has been helpful and friendly and has taken the opportunity to benefit from CPD workshops and continue to develop as a teacher. She is a flexible and reliable individual who takes the time to prepare engaging lessons for her students and follow up with the necessary administration. She also takes an active interest in those around her, both in offering her support and showing a willingness to learn from others.

I decided to start some private sessions with Paola to be more confident with the language. I have personally felt her support to improve my English through her online sessions on Zoom was particularly effective and beneficial. They were bespoke and superbly tailored to suit my needs. She is a good language coach, she has well motivated myself to achieve my goals improving my skills. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn a new language

I attended Italian lessons with Paola for nearly three years while working at Mulberry. I really enjoyed the lessons which Paola taught and therefore made every effort to attend as much as possible.   Paola was very flexible in how she taught Italian and was keen to tailor the course so that it met the needs which we had in the fashion and leather industry. She also spent time preparing lots of background material which was relevant to our industry. We were provided with lots of suitable exercises and handouts.   Paola is a keen tutor and made sure that the lessons were enjoyable by providing fun exercises and occasional Italian treats to make the learning more fun.   It was a good experience working with Paola and it gave me a good basic level in Italian which helped during my previous job and also in subsequent experiences. Paola cared very much about our lessons, what we were learning and worked hard to ensure that we were content in our learning.

Paola was my French teacher for 2 months and in this two months I really enjoyed her teaching. Her knowledge about the language is stupendous. Her teaching skills are really great. She will understand my doubts/questions before I ask her. She gave so many tips to improve my learning and the notes she gave were very helpful. She is such a reliable teacher! You’re doing a fantastic job!

-Nirmala Chandran

Paola has been helping me with my italian for over 6 months now. We have a 1:1 conversation session each week. She provides appropriate resources for our sessions and is a thorough and supportive teacher. Her subject knowledge is excellent and her manner is very pleasant. I cannot recommend Paola highly enough.

-Avril Rayner

After looking extensively for intensive Italian beginners’ classes online and not finding any courses that matched my requirements, I decided to opt for one-to-one tuition. Through LinkedIn, I quickly came across Paola’s profile. During our first communications and initial meeting, it was clear she understood well my motivation for learning and what I wanted to achieve. Paola quickly assessed my level, developed a bespoke intensive Italian language course for me over ten weeks and was swift to pinpoint areas for improvement. As a result, the ten-week period was focused and we covered a lot of ground. Paola was very patient and effective at finding ways to help me get to grips with the more challenging aspects of the language. Our lessons were also great fun and made learning Italian a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend her lessons to anyone!

-Julia Bridcut

I hired Paola as a private French tutor, to get my rusty French speaking up to speed, shortly before going on tour to France. She succeeded in getting me up to a confident conversation level, covering not only the basic grammar and vocabulary, but also some of the colloquial phrases, which proved to be key in mingling and making new friends!
The thing that immediately strikes you about Paola is her patience. She tailors her lessons to her client’s specific needs, always going at a pace that’s manageable. Paola also has an incredible enthusiasm for teaching. She has a very engaging technique, whereby one doesn’t feel the labour of learning, but rather more having had a fun chat in a different language, knowing a bit more than you did before. Paola was flexible about meeting points, and would happily travel to either my home, out in cafes, or even in parks!
Paola is an infectiously positive character, with an instinct for people and their needs. I have no hesitation in recommending Paola as a fantastic choice of languages tutor.
