I am a native speaker of the Italian language, I have helped many people achieve the level of Italian they wanted to reach. Whether you just want to learn how to carry a conversation or learn Italian literature and culture in depth, I can get you there. Being born and raised there I can also make sure you do not learn any false or inaccurate notions as I have seen many people learn that had studied from books or American teachers (I hate to sound arrogant but I speak out of experience). I can also teach Sicilian dialect and literature should you be interested in that.

My emphasis is on a dialogue-driven media-enriched, and comparative introduction for the language to draw out a common ground and familiarize possibly daunting differences. I use a customized curriculum addressing frequently requested topics, as family, travel, outdoor, seasons, and custom themes for an optimal lesson experience.
For example, students have favorably reviewed my unique usage of audio monitoring software during online lessons to help approximate accent issues between different languages. Students obtain a repository of audio files to complement each lesson. My multimedia approach that coordinates sound, visual, and online resource, as Easy German and Google Earth, turns German into a good choice for a second or additional language.
I grew up bilingual English and German, attending an international school from a very young age. I attended, also, a German public secondary school, where I earned a diploma, and I completed German credits at the college level. Therefore, ...

Erol has a very systematic approach in teaching accent reduction. Since taking lessons with Erol, I've started to become more aware of my speech and noticed an improvement in my pronunciation. Highly recommended!
June
Erol utilizes an audio software to analyze and determine what needs to be worked. This eliminates a lot of human hearing errors and gives me a visual on what’s correct vs incorrect. Highly recommended for you to try his method out.
Rhonda H.
I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

I have developed a proven, groundbreaking, unique, fun and interactive approach to reduce, and in some cases eliminate the foreign accent completely. How you ask? Being a singing teacher for over 15 years, I have always found it fascinating when my foreign students would be able to sing a standard American song with NO accent. Somehow, singing completely eliminated their accent. Since that discovery, I was determined to find out why and how. Based on my research, I have created a very easy to understand method that can dramatically reduce the foreign accent.

Coming from an immigrant family myself, and being fluent in three languages (English, Spanish, Italian), I can relate to the challenges foreigners face when attempting to speak in a neutralized American accent. This can be holding you back from advancing your career.

You will see results instantly. Take the first step to propel your career to the next level!

"Professor Jean-Luc is phenomenal. I think the material he has chosen to give lessons with is very clear and has helped me improve a lot. Before every lesson he makes sure to send you the material for the next class, which helps a lot specially when you are learning online. The main reason why I chose him is because he is a french native speaker, which was extremely important to me because all my life I had french teachers that weren't french, so my pronunciation was a little bit weird-- I feel that I have improved a lot these 4 months :). I started learning French when I was 11 years old and Professor Jean-Luc helped me refresh my mind--it is interesting how he helped me remember many small grammar and writing details. I am very satisfied! Thank you Professor."

French Pronunciation Guide: Avoid These Common Mistakes!

Many French students struggle with their pronunciation at first. Try these practical tips from opera voice teacher Elaina R. to get the right sounds out... French is beautiful. Almost muttered, flowing from vowel to vowel, French has earned a reputation as the "language d’amour." Why is it, then, that everyone in your French class sounds so utterly unromantic? Put succinctly, it’s because English and French have very different phonetic rules. Lots of letters are pronounced completely …
