A wonderful chef, very informative, organized and professional. Great recipe and Maria adapted everything to suit my smallish kitchen and not too equipped cupboard. Very knowledgeable. Super delicious. Highly recommended!!

I am an Italian native speaker who is a total foodie and who has been cooking for several years.

To me cooking is not just a chore, it is an experience that goes through all the different senses. It is all about using the right ingredients and knowing how to merge them together in order to get an exquisite meal.

From the get go I knew I had found the perfect teacher,
Enrico is a motivating teacher.
He challenges you to learn what you need by reading and discussing interesting materials he sends .it isn't just not doing verbs exercises and tenses but actually participating in actual situations as if you were in Italy .
Enrico quickly helps you get over the nervousness that students experience when reading out loud and discussing the meaning of words in sentences and their uses.

Studying Italian with Enrico for a little over 1 year. He is a fantastic teacher; carefully prepares special learning material each week to augment textbook and encourages conversation and culture. He has special talent for teaching that makes grammar and conversation easy to understand

We can really have a lot of fun cooking several different type of "lasagna al forno", super meat or veggie "polpette" (balls) for kids, hand made grissini (breadstick), polenta with 4 cheeses, ragu' alla Bolognese,....
It is possible to set up classes up to 3 student at the same price per hour ..with more fun! I have to add all groceries needed.
I have completed the BASIC FOOD HANDLER'S COURSE in date 6/10/2014 .
I hope to see you soon!

We had a great time learning from Massimo. You can't learn the proper consistence of pasta dough from a book or video. We will be using all the techniques we learned. The marinara sauce he taught us to make was simple, but delicious. We will definitely call on Massimo again.

I must be honest by saying that I am not a good student when it comes to learning a language. So I must congratulate Massimo on his patience with me as a slow learner. Despite my desire to learn Italian, desire is not enough. Massimo made things easier for me and much more interesting by combining my interests with the lessons for the day. For example, Massimo created lessons around my interest in Italian Serie A futbol and my interest in Italian history. We studied the many regions and some current events while learning basic Italian. Massimo also has a good sense of humor and easy going with his students. I would easily recommend Massimo to anyone who is seeking a tutor to learn Italian. Prepare to have fun while learning!

I cook almost every day. As a German, I am used to homemade food and I am sure there is a lot I can teach my students.

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

Marcel tutored my 6 year old daughter in German. He is very friendly and likable, and she enjoyed working with him right away! He even played "Filly's" with her (a German My Little Pony toy!" He is very patient and makes learning fun. He was punctual and also flexible. We had a great experience working with Marcel!
