Julia is an excellent teacher! I came away from first lesson thinking "maybe I can actually learn a new language"......I went in thinking "am I crazy to think I can learn a new language at my age"! Highly recommend Julia as your future teacher!

Here is a little history, I have been teaching for 5 years in France, mainly mathematics and french grammar, to students. It wasn't professionally, just as a side job during my engineering school. And if you're asking those questions : "What's the best way to learn french ? How can I be sure to learn good french writing and/or speaking ?", here is the answer : find a french person. And you know what ? You're lucky ! Nice to meet you. Let's have fun learning French !

About Jason

Bonjour! Nice to meet you. My name is Jason. I know, this name doesn’t seems to be French at all, but in France, it’s not pronounced as people say here, that’s different. I come from France, from a little city which is 2 hours in the south of Paris. I did an engineering school in France, specia

I want to travel to South America and saw that Mateo lived there. I thought he might have some good personal insight and tips on how to learn Spanish faster. I was not disappointed. I find the classes well organized, interesting, and fun. If you want to learn with a real pro, go with Mateo! Saludos!

Ciao ragazzi!

My name is Molly Carroll (a very Irish name indeed!) and my family is a beautiful combination of Italy-dwelling Italians and Irish-Americans. I grew up spending long summers in Italy with our Nonno and Nonna (Italian for "Grandpa" and "Grandma"), where I was fortunate to be immersed in the language and culture from the time I was an infant.
In my classes I hope to share my passion and love for my home land in the North (Lombardia), as well as explore the rich variety of culture and history that Italy has to offer, as we learn a working foundation of the language. Maybe even Nonna's porcini risotto recipe!
I am excited to offer beginner Italian lessons to both adults and children, where the curriculum is adjusted accordingly.
If you are someone who would love to get started on having conversational Italian as a skill, you are in the right place! My lessons cover very basic grammar, but the focus is on vocabulary and developing the confidence to LEAP into the ...

About Molly

Benvenuti! I've been bilingual (English and Italian ) since I was a baby- I was fortunate for that, and my parents made sure that I didn't miss out on the chance to learn Italian from our grandparents. My culture, language, and family have all brought me so much joy in life, and I would love to
