About Antonio
Outstanding native Italian instructor who uses both traditional textbook teaching and web tools, which help students hear the spoken language (to perfect pronunciation) and see the written language (to perfect spelling, grammar and punctuation).

I already have several students' ratings/reviews. and I've been cleared on two separate background checks, Lexis Nexis and Background website; I will be happy to show both reports to new students.

I'm there to help students work through all aspects of the language, from basic grammar to verb conjugation to vocabulary expansion and word stress (where words are accented).

One more thing: the first lesson with new students is always free.

Cordiali saluti,
Antonio M.

This incredible women helped me hit a note that I never thought I’d even touch in my life, and then had me sing this note (as well as the song that accompanied it), in front of many people that I had never met before.

Amazing.

During her lessons, she had me singing from places I never knew you were supposed to sing through-- my gut, my lungs, my throat, and most difficult for me, my eyes She had me practice breathing, and often had me singing the silliest warm ups, to put all of this practice to the test. It took a lot of time and a lot of experience to distinguish those subtle differences and really understand their importance. Stephanie was so patient and so encouraging. She always took the time to make sure I understood what I was doing, and she never ran through a lesson without knowing how I was. She created a space where I could be vulnerable - where I didn’t feel embarrassed to sing a note (way the heck) off key. Even though we never formally practiced this, in the mix of all the other invaluable lessons she gave me, Stephanie taught me how much of a difference it makes to sing from the heart. I don’t think another teacher could have compared.

Stephanie is the vocal teacher you want! She tailors your lessons to what you want to work on and has a great home studio. She both challenges and encourages you at the same time. And she's affordable too. Voice lessons can be an expensive racket in LA and I'm so glad I found Stephanie!

Farangis have been teaching my teenagers Farsi for the last 9 months, within the first three weeks, they were able to make conversations and we were all excited, she always brings entertainments and different activities to the classroom and it made my teens more interested and engaged. They can now read and write low intermediate and speak high intermediate, communicating with their grandparents and watch Iranian movies with them. She is a great teacher :)

Greetings!, Hello!, Hi!, Hey!

I've been teaching English and ESL since 2000 and taught all ages from kids to adults. Two incredible experiences were teaching in Eritrea, E. Africa and Guatemala, C. America. Not only do I enjoy making grammar and conversation accessible to all students, but my goal is to help students to become fluent and obtain the skills to have both professional and social conversations.

Most importantly, I love teaching and helping students get on their own path of "the love of learning"!
