About Sandy
Having taught Chinese Language Skills in the private sector, primary, secondary and college institutions for a number of years in China, has not only given me great confidence to teach in a classroom setting, but has inherently brought an instructor comfort that feels natural to me.
In addition, finding an opportunity where I can assist the kids, middle school and high school students and adults who love to learn Chinese college staff while maintaining my teaching proficiency in traditional or simplified Chinese characters is both welcome and rewarding to me.

I'm certain that my rich knowledge and years of experience in classroom practical application of Chinese Curriculum / Culture coupled with my love to teach make me a professional, responsible and patient teacher.

In addition, I can teach you Chinese in your location which
is no more than 10 miles away from Vista where I live. I can also teach you how to play badminton and cook delicious authentic Chinese food.

Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.

About Lorena
Ciao! I am a native Italian living in the USA for several years now.
My background is in foreign languages and I love traveling and meeting new people. I studied English and French in Italy before spending two years in England working and studying to perfectionate English where I also learned conversational Spanish.
Once in the USA I started working in the information technology field for a company that had a branch in Italy. I had to assist, translate and teach different materials in Italian and I also did some freelancing tutoring.
I have three children and I also speak and teach Italian to them only. It has been fun to see them being comfortable in speaking Italian when we go to Italy. I try to travel to Italy at least once a year.

My other passion is cooking and baking. I was lucky that I grow up with both my parents
as excellent cooks. We had a vegetable garden, fruit trees and livestocks so most of the ingredients were fresh. I started cooking a lot when I moved to USA as I missed the Italian dishes very much and I realized my only connection to my country was via the food.

I also have a love for fashion! Growing up in Italy means being surrounded by beauty everywhere.. the marvelous architecture and art, the language and music, the beautiful landscapes, the fruits of nature and the fashion! I believe because of this most Italians develop a sense of style. When I moved here I realized how much harder was to find unique clothes and accessories so I enjoy the challenge to put together outfits with what I have available.

Lorna was great baking with my 12 year old grandson. He was awaiting hip surgery so the class was a great distraction for him and the end product a beautiful chocolate cake to take home was a fun reward.
Lorna was very well prepared, had all the ingredients and tools laid out, let my grandson do much of the work measuring, mixing etc and even had baked a similar cake the night before so there would be a cool cake to frost and decorate.
His review: it was great.

After you have experienced a cooking lesson with Lorena you will feel like you have visited Venice Italy.
Her birth place. Lorena will share simple, healthy recipes you will use for a lifetime. I learned so much from her and I'm already a glorified chef. Her signature dishes with all the Venetian secrets can be revealed in her kitchen or yours. She's a very good listener and will adapt to what your family likes to eat. I will continue my lessons after the New Year... wanting to pare wine with the food . Another hidden talent .thank you Lorena

My 7 year old daughter had been asking to take sewing lessons for months. She's learned so much in a short amount of time. She’s learned both hand sewing and machine sewing techniques and is looking forward to her next lesson.

Monika is a superb instructor. We were attempting to make croissants and she made us all feel as though we were master bakers. She has a positive vibe and is incredibly helpful and informative.
I would take another class from her any time.

About Christian
Chef Christian Bonilla Culinary Bio
From a young age I had a passion for everything food. Everything. My Spanish ancestry passed on the love of food and cooking as well. Family gatherings have always revolved around the menu and cooking. As a Spanish Language major in college, I studied abroad and devoured the Spanish culture and cuisine. Traveling throughout US broadened my horizons to other cuisines as well.

Eventually, I turned my passion into my career path and attended culinary school at The Restaurant School of Miami, a classical French culinary school. I absorbed all the techniques to prepare me for a culinary career. While in school, one of my classmates mentioned the new field of "Personal Cheffing". From that point on, my goal was to eventually have my own Personal Chef business with a focus on healthy cuisines.

Aft
er apprenticing at various types of food establishments, including the five-star Zuma Restaurant and a healthy foods catering company in Puerto Rico,
I settled back in New York City and started my Personal Chef Business.

Focusing on special diets has been a natural progression for my business. I have spent much time taking classes and reading materials related to diet and health. When I have a new client with a health condition unfamiliar to me, I spend some time researching this condition, for my own education. I will use the diet information from my client's healthcare provider or nutritionist, and use my culinary knowledge to prepare healing foods that promote my client's wellness.

I have worked with clients who have had Multiple Food Allergies, Parkinson's Disease, Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Gluten Free and Dairy Free diets, and Diabetes, to name a few. As I work with a client they start learning about healthy foods, and how to incorporate nutritious foods into everyday. My personal commitment to my business and clients is to continue to learn and study about the relationship of food, health and nutrition. I find these subjects fascinating. I whole heartily incorporate this commitment into the meals I prepare for my clients, to continue to help them maintain vibrant health.
