If you believe I have been a good teacher, some written feedback from you would be a great help for my new business.

    I would highly recommend Gabriele – he is very patient and jovial, and happy to adapt his lessons to his students’ requirements and pace. He also discusses Italian culture and history in addition to teaching the language and grammar. He’s a great teacher!

    Gabriele has been teaching my two children for several years now (currently aged 13 and 10). He is an excellent tutor and I highly recommend him. He visits our house, and adapts his lessons to the needs of each child. He is especially flexible when they are tired or distracted.

    Gabriele frequently revisits topics and consolidates their learning, and I have seen a huge improvement in their understanding and in their confidence.

    Gabriele is always friendly and extremely professional and is excellent at putting you at ease. We would hate to lose him as our tutor.

    If you have ever wanted to learn a new language, (and what better language is there to learn?), then I wholeheartedly recommend Gabriele to you.

    Gabriele has taught me for a year now and has adapted his teaching to suit my needs. He has encouraged and given me confidence in reading, writing and speaking Italian which has been a great help on my visits to Italy.
    I highly recommend him and can’t thank him enough!
    Grazie mille!

    I have had a number of lessons with Gabrielle and must highly recommend him as a teacher. My conversational lessons are always enjoyable, largely due to his flexible and friendly style of teaching. His approach is very professional, adapting his lessons to the needs of the student, adjusting his feedback to suit the confidence or otherwise of the student.

    The subjects of the conversations are wide-ranging, reflecting my interests and any trips to Italy that might be forthcoming. He is, rightly, proud of his heritage in Bologna and this shows in his enthusiasm for teaching his students, not just the language but also the culture and history of the region.

    I have been on a break from lessons for a few months due to travel and other commitments but am now very much looking forward to restarting which should be recommendation enough!

    A presto

    Gabriele Galli helped my daughter prepare for her successful Oxbridge interview in Modern Foreign Languages last year. His teaching was well-informed and of a very advanced level.
    I would thoroughly recommend him as a tutor.

    Gabriele tutored my daughter for her Italian GCSE – i could not have been more grateful to have found Gabriele! He came up with a clear plan from the very start, and relentlessly worked with my daughter to ensure she could aspire to the highest score (and she got full marks!). He has been really flexible to fit the tutoring within my daughter’s busy schedule and has been incredibly encouraging with her, building her confidence and providing practical tips that saved her lots of preparation time.

    Thank you, Gabriele

    I have been a student of Gabriele for a year now and will continue to do so.
    My daughter in law and her family are Italian , so my lessons take on an important role as well as for when we go on holiday.
    In fact they congratulate me on my Italian and that is down to Gabriele.
    Grazie mille.

    Gabriele has been my Italian teacher for 2 or 3 years now, with occasional breaks due to changes of circumstance. I always enjoy the lessons which are not only informative on the language but also a wide variety of subjects which we explore as we chat through the lesson. He is very good at making the discussion relevant and orients the lessons to my particular interests or current events.
    I would really recommend Gabriele as an Italian teacher to anyone who is trying to learn. I have tried online lessons but having a REAL teacher not only explains the language much more clearly but also makes it much more fun!
    Thanks Gabriele.

    I had a daily lesson for 1 hour from Tuesday to Friday in August, just before a holiday in Sicilia. I found Gabriele to be so easy to talk with – in Italian – and so informative and helpful, that I think my Italiano came on in leaps and bounds. If you are thinking of learning Italiano, he should be at the top of your list as a teacher. Ottimo.

    My husband and I have been learning Italian with Gabriele for nearly two years now. Gabriele is very patient and his knowledge of Italian culture and history is exceptional. He always makes learning fun and our lessons are the highlight of my week. Our language skills have improved greatly and we always receive compliments from the Italians when we talk with them in Italy. On a recent visit to Bologna, a lady in a restaurant told me to complement my Italian teacher on teaching me so well. I would highly recommend Gabriele to anyone wanting to lean Italian for business or pleasure. Grazie mille Gabriele!!

    I am very pleased to have the chance of recommending Gabriele ‘s lessons. I have been a student at his classes for a while now and always look forward to our next session. Gabriele makes the lesson enjoyable and is very patient, especially when I get it wrong! He is supportive and encouraging and I really feel I have learned a great deal since joining his classes and would feel confident in trying to communicate when I next visit Italy

    Gabriele has been my Italian tutor for more than two years, and is excellent in every respect.

    I started with zero knowledge of the language, and so his patience has been invaluable and reassuring. He adjusts the pace and content of the lessons to my needs so that sometimes we work on grammar, sometimes on vocabulary and sometimes we just engage in conversation.

    My Italian is definitely progressing – although never as quickly as I would like! But the most important thing is that Gabriele makes the process so much fun and so enjoyable. I really look forward to my lessons!

    Gabriele’s enthusiasm and passion for the Italian language and culture is contagious, and I cannot recommend him highly enough to anyone who wants to learn Italian or improve their knowledge of the language.

    Gabriele’s enthusiasm and patience is brilliant. Me and my girlfriend have been learning with Gabriele for a few months and he has helped us greatly. He tailors lessons to suit our needs and accomodates requests for what we think would be helpful topics. We are both gaining more confidence and have only Gabriele to thank!

My son has never once complained he had to have a lesson with Gabriele – believe me, for a 16year old, that is truly unique. I could not recommend him more, he is simply a great teacher!

    Since I have studied with him, I have improved my Italian a lot and I feel much more confident when I have to speak it.
    I highly recommend Gabriele .

    Gabriele is a great teacher! I have been taking Italian lessons from him for some time now and have always found him to be very patient and happy to proceed at a pace that suits me. He also constantly encourages me to learn more and to try harder.

    Speaking a second language does not come easily but on a recent trip to Italy – I realised just how much he has taught me. I was confident enough to check into hotels and order meals in restaurants and even managed a short conversation or two in Italian.

    I would be happy to recommend Gabriele’s teaching skills to anyone who is thinking of learning Italian.

    Gabriele has taught our 17 year old daughter Italian to GCSE over the last two years. She had no previous experience of the language. (We had a couple of Italian au pairs, and she loves the country and the Italian language).

    Gabriele is an enthusiastic native speaker and clearly enjoyed teaching our daughter. He prepared the lessons well and provided homework where appropriate. He liaised with the school regarding the exams. Our daughter, in turn, is highly motivated to learn and has gained confidence and skill from the one-to-one arrangement. Most of all she has enjoyed the experience.

    We have had a regular term-time slot of either 1.5 or 2 hours on a Saturday, at our home, but timings have been flexible both ways.

    I consider we were fortunate to find Gabriele, and would highly recommend him.

    After having completed a 24 hour Italian course with Gabriele, I could only highly recommend him as an enthusiastic and engaging teacher for all levels. Upon starting the course, I had an upper-beginner level and was not at all confident in spoken or written Italian. Now I have completed my hourly sessions of conversational Italian, my level of spoken and written Italian has improved so much and I am so happy with everything I have learnt and achieved.

    Gabriele’s classes are interesting and comfortable as he asked me specifically at the beginning of the course of all my interests and hobbies and how I wanted to learn Italian. When I told him that I needed to improve fluidity of speech and that I could study the grammar at home, he searched for topics that would suit my level and which interested me so we could chat for an hour about them. I found over a few weeks that I could understand and respond much better than at the beginning through thorough teaching and explanation as well as an impeccable knowledge of both English and Italian that Gabriele possesses.

    Overall, I had a very positive experience and apart from the extreme satisfaction of the fact that my Italian is now at an intermediate level and I can use it professionally, just getting to know Gabriele and chat with him in an informal but scholastic way was a lot of fun indeed. Not only will I miss my classes, I will actively seek to keep learning and I will definitely think about continuing the course further.

    I always look forward to my Italian lessons with Gabriele very much indeed. His friendly manner and good sense of humour put me at my ease, and there is always so much to discuss. He has a thorough understanding of Italian and English grammar and, more importantly, the skills to explain and teach, which is not true of all native speakers.

    He is interested in his students and tailors each lesson to their individual needs and interests. His warm personality and professional intelligent approach make his lessons a most rewarding and enjoyable experience.

    We had a fantastic trip to Bologna organised by Gabriele . Nothing was too much trouble and we particularly enjoyed the variety of the experience from the wonderful accommodation and food and local wines at Torres de Jano to our guided tours of Ravenna and Ferrara and Bologna itself.

    The opportunity to learn pasta making, have Italian lessons and go cycling in the beautiful countryside is something we will never forget. We would thoroughly recommend.

    Salute!

    I really wanted you to know how much I am enjoying studying with Gabriele. I am not just learning (?!) Italian, but also Italian history, culture, recipes and so much more. The week before last I asked Gabriele how the Italian language evolved (we were discussing something else at the time), and the conversation turned to Dante. Last week he brought in a book for me concerning the evolution of the Italian language and the works of Dante. I have photocopied the relevant pages (he did try, but the copier was not working), and we are going to use this text for our future conversations. I have, of course, heard of Dante but have never read his works, so I am really looking forward to studying this.

    What I just want to say, is that my Thursday lesson is so much more than learning Italian. It is so interesting and I am enjoying learning immensely. Gabriele talks to me in Italian and I do understand him, although I do have still have difficulty understanding everything when Flavia and her family talk at speed. My conversation is still very slow and laboured, but I shall keep trying.

    I think that Gabriele is an excellent teacher and I am so lucky to have found him. He has really tried to understand me as a person, and to make the lessons as interesting as he can. Also, he is educating me in so many other ways
