Ms Pinto taught me Italian 20 years ago. Her ability to motivate me and encourage me to learn the Italian language has been so rewarding. She was always enthusiastic and eager to assist when I needed individual assistance after classes. I went on to study English and Italian at Uni and now have a successful career as a journalist. By studying Italian, I excelled in my English studies. Thank you Ms Pinto, and happy retirement!
Ms Pinto was such an inspirational teacher for me. I graduated in 1989 ! She inspired me to continue my Italian studies through university - I have continued a rewarding career in the cultural industries. My daughter is about to start Italian at high school I hope I'm not too rusty to help her! Best wishes to Maria I wish their were more teachers like you!
So dedicated and passionate. I'm now at uni training to be a teacher. Her guidance enable me to make that decision and I have never looked back. Thank you Miss Pinto and happy retirement.
I agree!! I had Ms Pinto as my Italian teacher and she was the best teacher that I have ever had. I have just graduated as a teacher myself recently and I have Ms Pinto to thank for guiding me in that direction. I'm looking forward to my teaching profession and being the best teacher possible. Grazie, signora Pinto.
Fantastic teacher. I wish she was still teaching at our school. She had all the time in the world to explain something without making you feel silly. She was always positive and told us that hard work always paid off. I did well because of her caring guidance. She always made you feel important and smart. Thank you Miss Pinto.
Fantastic teacher! Always helpful and very patient when explaining anything. She's so smart and has even helped me with my English skills. I wish some of my other teachers were like her.
miss pinto is a good, reliable teacher. Although, she could improve by reducing her talking time and actually use our textbooks. I'm no genius in italian, but I can tell you, miss pinto is reiable. but if one student makes a mistake, like me, she would talk on for a good ten minutes. Overall, I give maria Pinto a 7/10
Despite her being a very good Italian teacher she talks way too much. If someone made one little mistake she goes on and on explaining the mistake for 15 minutes.
Best teacher ever! Always helpful and is more than willing to give extra help if you need it. Her interesting conversations during the lessons made me love learning Italian even more. The only teacher I've had who doesn't rely on textbooks and boring worksheets. You can tell she's passionate about her subject. Thanks Ms Pinto.
She is a good teacher but spends too much time talking, if she made her lessons more interactive she would be a much more liked teacher
Just as capable as mrs Palermo, and shes a good cook!
shes okay. she does talk to much. and about the same thing over and over again. kinda uninteresting and annoying lessons too.
atleast she's organised. you have to admit she's more capable than like ms palermo. kinda mind-numbingly boring though. but still. not a bad teacher :|
