“Iris is a native Italian speaker and she does an amazing job with a variety of language exercises and keeping all of the students engaged. The online format allows students to be involved as little or much as they like. Participation is key to learning though and she keeps the content interesting by continually testing us in a number of ways to expand our language skills. Many of the classes are followed up with special audio downloads she recorded, based on areas I asked for additional help, which shows the level of personal attention she provides as an instructor. One Due Tres Languages has an excellent format that makes learning a new language fun and not intimidating..”Wendy O.
“I'm a current student at OneDueTres languages and I've been taking Spanish tutoring classes. I took Spanish back in college but forgot a whole lot of it and I'm finding myself needing to learn it again. For now my main focus has been to strengthen my pronunciation and build my vocabulary so most of my sessions are spent building my speaking skills. My tutor makes sure to structure classes in a way where exercises aren’t boring or repetitive, and she makes sure that by the end of each class I feel like I'm actually learning and not just memorizing concepts or words. I also love the flexibility of doing this on my own schedule versus having to abide by a structured schedule.”Jack F.
“Last fall I took the Spanish for beginners’ course that OneDueTres Languages offered. One of the aspects that I enjoyed the most was that I was able to watch the class at a later time if I felt like I needed to go over something I couldn’t understand, or if I could not attend the live class when it was scheduled (which happened often given my very busy schedule). Each week not only did we have a 2-hour live class, but the instructor also provided additional materials such as pre-recorded video lessons, audio lessons, and a weekly short “recap” video that went over what we learned that week. All of these resources + the instructor’s dedication to making sure I was progressing and learning in a way that was helpful to me, made me feel like I definitely got a lot of value out of the course.”Marion T.
“Last year I had a trip planned to Italy and while I speak Spanish fluently and Italian is very similar, I really wanted to challenge myself and learn a little bit of Italian. I found Iris via a friend that used her services in the past and she created a program that worked for me and my busy schedule. What I really enjoyed was having the ability to look back on the tutoring sessions we did and listen to them or watch them again if needed. Since she knew I needed to learn Italian for a vacation, she didn’t bore me with a lot of grammar or information that was not relevant to me, and she even created some useful flashcards that I could refer to when needed, depending on the situation. I highly recommend her services because she is extremely caring about her students and wants to ensure they all succeed in their goals.”Steffany R.
