Lorraine H. knows her SAT prep! That was evident from the first phone call and tutoring session with our daughter. She is a great student and hard worker at the Calculus level but her SAT math scores didn't demonstrate that. Lorraine has come in and after only three sessions, our daughter is already more confident and is gaining the test-taking skills she needs. Lorraine has been very flexible on scheduling, easy to reach and has developed a positive working relationship with her student in a short time. All good stuff!

I'm an Italian-American from Yonkers, New York who has had many years of experience in dealing with native Italians who for one reason or another found themselves situated either permanently or temporarily in the New York city region. My experience with them even includes an entire summer in 1981 working as an intern at the Italian Trade Commission on Park Ave in NYC. My experience with this tutor has decisively shown me that this is a flawless individual in her capacity as an Italian translator. Her most notable asset is her initiative, as she translated for me a two page document riddled with American idiomatic expressions in less than three days. On the fourth day, Lisa personally came to my house to assist me in putting the finishing touches on the final draft. Let me be clear here, no Italian in the NYC region with the established translator skills of a Lisa would have rendered in such a short period of time what she produced for me in terms of the quality of the translation or the personal attention she afforded me. For all you out there looking for an awesome Italian translator with reasonable prices, now you know where to go.
