I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

Hola,

I'm a Spanish professor and tutor. I received my Masters degree in Spanish/Education in 1999. I have been teaching Spanish at some local universities: USF, HCC and FSC for quite some time (20 yrs). I have also taught Middle School and High School.

I am an author of a Spanish grammar book for beginner students which it also includes 5 CD's. This book has been used in Continuing Education classes at USF and HCC. I also use it in my tutoring.

I love to teach Spanish and see that my students learn this beautiful language. Students say that I am very patient and explain Spanish concepts very clear - easy to understand.

I'll be happy to help you either in person or online.

Thank you,
Millie

Ps: I'm not teaching elementary or middle school kids at this time.

About Patrizia
Ciao! My name is Patrizia, and I’m originally from Firenze in Italy. I currently live between Florida, UK and Italy, where I teach Italian to English speakers.
I enjoy teaching my language and learning new things from my students, experiencing new cultures.
I love pass you on nuances, I enjoy teaching the real Italian, the one spoken in Italy, and discover the differences with the one written on books.
I do not have a degree, I have lots of experience teaching the language. I have been running up to 8 classes in adult education, covering any level from beginner to advanced. I'm a real person and I understand very well the weak points (i had to go trough them when learning English) and I know how to overcome them.
My teaching style? Tailor made! I teach the Italian that is relevant to YOU and what you want to achieve.
We will have fun du
ring our lessons, but we will also work hard to achieve your goals.
Learning a language is like an orchestra, it works with several instruments. Therefore, not only grammar, but also vocabulary, listening (ouch!) and speaking with a nice pronunciation. Listening exercises, yes, they are very important for your future ability of interacting with Italians.
I will also explain the Italian grammar in English, unless you are at an advanced level.

About Erida
I'm a passionate tutor of Spanish language. I'm currently working as a Spanish professor at St. Petersburg College and Florida Southern College. I offer Spanish classes at all levels and in different areas of expertise, and I’m also an experienced translator.

I hold a Doctorate Degree in Spanish Linguistics and Translation from the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain, with a CUM LAUDE distinction. I have been awarded two academic honors of “Golden Medal” in recognition of outstanding academic achievement with regards to my Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree in Spanish Philology.

Additionally, I have successfully completed various specialization courses and trainings in Spanish Language and Culture arranged by Spanish universities.

I have expertise in a variety of disciplines such as: Spanish Linguistics, Translation, Spanish Lan
guage and Culture, Latin-American Civilization and Spanish for specific purposes.

As a teacher, my philosophy is to provide students with a friendly and supportive atmosphere in order to help them boost their confidence in learning a new language. I feel that students can benefit from my first-hand experience of Spanish language and Hispanic culture. I am thoroughly familiar with the Spanish culture, since I lived in Spain for more than 4 years and during my stay in the multi-cultural Colegio Mayor Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe residence in Madrid, I’ve had the chance to acquire a vast knowledge of Spanish as well as Latin-American culture.

I am not the kind of teacher who believes in a single perfect teaching technique or is anchored to textbooks; I always struggle to find innovative ways that address the different needs of my students, spark their interests as well as stimulate their analytical and critical thinking skills.

My goal is to help my students to rise to their full potential, to transfer my passion and enthusiasm to them and to provide inspiration to fuel their pursuits.

So, if you are an elementary, middle, high school or university student trying to keep up with your classes, to raise your grades or to perform better on Spanish tests or an adult willing to become fluent in conversational Spanish, to learn Spanish for business, tourism or any other specific purpose, or to get acquainted with Spanish language and culture, we can devise a strategy that will fit your needs and wishes.

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

About Barbara
Thank you very much for your interest in my profile. My name is Barbara, I was born and raised in Germany and worked for 15 years as a Training and Quality Executive in the hotel industry, one of the companies being The Ritz-Carlton, one of the best training companies in the world. I was a public speaker for The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg and provided quality and service training sessions for German companies such as Audi and Siemens. I was also in charge of all in-house training sessions, spent up to 20 hours per week in a classroom environment and was chosen as a Property Opening Trainer for The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin. I transferred with The Ritz-Carlton from Berlin, Germany, to Miami in 2005. I enjoyed working as an Executive at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach until 2009, when I got married and had my daughter.

I decided to fully homeschoo
l my now nine-year old daughter for two years, who, as a result, is fluent in German in both speaking and writing. We moved to NYC in 2013 and I was approved by and followed the official NYC Department of Education guidelines for homeschooling. I joined a weekly after-school program at my church in NYC, taught in English, for Grades 1 to 6 as a tutor in 2014 and have been the director since 2015. I work remotely, with a team of eight volunteers and we assist between 8 to 12 children every week. We focus on Common Core English Language Arts - spelling, writing, reading, and Elementary Math. My family and I just relocated to Florida - Tampa this time - and we are enjoying the sun!

My husband is of Japanese origin. Being in an interracial marriage and raising a child in a household where multiple languages are spoken, I truly appreciate and understand the importance of learning about different cultures and languages. I asked my daughter and my students how they would describe my teaching style. They said: "Fun, never boring, we learn a lot and play games, a little strict sometimes but in a good way." My after-school kids do come back every week and enjoy the program, that makes for a good reference, I would say.

Having tutored for many years and being a language student myself (intermediate Japanese), I know how to keep students interested in learning - and I love to work with different materials such as games, books, worksheets and role play to keep it interesting and motivating. I spend some time in Germany each year and purchase new and stimulating learning materials on a regular basis. If you are interested in beginner or advanced German lessons for yourself or your child, I am looking forward to meeting you, either in person or online!
