Ciao, my name is Milko and I am a native Italian speaker who currently lives in Chicago. I love languages and I'm passionate about the skills that make us able to express ourselves in any situation. My lessons will use materials taken from real life, like songs, short stories, videos or article from Italian newspapers. We can talk about literature, cinema, cuisine, tourism or anything you will find more interesting. We will take care of grammar rules and common mistakes that will make you sound like a pro Italian speaker. I offer in person and online classes for all skill levels.

About MILKO

I'm Italian and I moved to the US 7 years ago. I always loved my native language and my classical studies (latin, greek and philosophy) gave me the knowledge to use it in a very proper way. I love grammar but at the same time I'm passionate to share with my students the "every day" language that wo

Education is one of the most valuable things you can acquire. Knowledge stays with you wherever you go and you can use it in the less unexpected situation.

I was born and raise on Peru, South America. Spanish is my native language.
I also hold a Bachelor's on Biological Science from Roosevelt University with a minor in Chemistry. I have take classes like Molecular Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience. Also General and Organic Chemistry. General Physics and Math up to Calculus. I offer tutoring on Biology, General Chemistry and Math.

Being bilingual have been a great advantage for me, especially at work. That's why I offer Spanish lessons and tutoring, from beginning to advance levels.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

 Plan, prepare and deliver Italian lessons to several level from beginning to more advanced students.
 Teach students to speak, comprehend, read and write in Italian language. Provide instruction in the culture and the literature of the Italian language.
 Adapt the lessons to the needs of the student and write reports to track their progress.

There are three modes of Hindi learning that are offered by me - spoken only, elementary (including foundational reading, writing, listening & speaking) and advanced (for academic enhancement of language skills).

Each class is well-structured according to individual needs and paced accordingly too. I often tell interesting facts about the language, the life of the common man speaking it and the culture of the region.

My students feel at ease and look forward to their classes because they are interesting and incorporate things that they relate to. This way Hindi literature remains contemporary and relevant to new generations of readers.

My teaching style is inviting of student participation, supportive and gentle.

About Shuchi

I offer three distinct aspects of Hindi learning - 1. Only spoken for social and travelling purposes 2. Beginners reading and writing 3. Enhancement for those who already know the language and want to further their academic understanding Teaching Hindi since 1988 when I was a teenage

Shuchi is patient and thorough. She takes her time in making sure you understand what and why you are learning as well as relating it into my native language.
She builds on what you know which is a great teaching strategy.

I had a great first lesson with Shuchi. She took the time to provide the history and background to Hindi and we have begun the alphabet. I look forward to week 2.

With Erin's training and expertise, I was able to learn the Irish dialect in an hour and nailed the audition! She has experience with multiple acting and audition techniques...she's able to speak multiple acting "languages". If you're looking for any audition coaching or dialect coaching, I definitely recommend Erin! She knows what she's doing!"
