Massimo D.

Annandale, VA

About Massimo

My name is Massimo, I was born and I spent all my life in Italy since I moved, three year ago in US with my family for a new great adventure. I am so enthusiastic to be able to share with you the knowledge of the language of the greatest poets and writers, knowledge of one of the most beautiful country in the world, rich of history and art, and why not share "in Italian" some of the most terrific recipes for the most refined palate.

The classes in Italian cuisine are tailored to your interests and your skill level. I can teach you how to prepare a "quick win" dinner for all the family or t
o prepare "single size" amazing meals ready for all the week. I can teach how to make handmade pasta with semolina or with whole wheat. Have you ever tasted a terrific Tiramisu...with strawberries?

How I understand I can be a good Italian tutor, patient, helpful and always ready to arouse the attention of my students? My youngest son, Vietnamese, is the best proof of my skill. He was able to speak a really good Italian in less than three months. Then I found to be "good" with adults as well. I started to teach Italian to some friends and after to friends of friends .... and it worked again!

Key word? Talk, watch, read, listen and talk again!
I am aware the Italian has one of the most complex grammars, but I also know that speaking and reading and watching Italian movies, soccer game or Television News makes automatic to learn the basic rules useful for a good conversation. We can use a really simple grammar book to support with the basic rules up to more advanced grammar books if we may need.

My tutoring approach is focus on student's weaknesses and strengths: use the seconds to correct the firsts. What it is important is to work on what you really like (movie, politics, receipts, actors, history, vacations, ...) and I promise it works. I already experienced this approach with a lot of students and friends who want to speak Italian and know Italy ...waiting for a great vacation "nel Bel Paese".
I try to be flexible with time and I offer makeup classes in case of 24 hours cancellation. I have an quite full equipped office at home but I am available to travel if it is more convenient for the students.
I hope see you soon.. A presto!!

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!

Jackie has been able to assess my needs quite well and tailor a program specific to my goals to learn Spanish. My language understanding has increased due to the formal classes with Jackie. I intend to keep her as my tutor even when I move to another country. She is knowledgeable, experienced and very patient as a tutor. Her sense of humour is a welcome addition at times when I am struggling. The online lessons are very good for my timetable and quite convenient. I would recommend Jackie as a Spanish language tutor.

Naomi K.

Washington, DC

About Naomi

I was originally born in Cincinnati, Ohio in a large family (youngest of nine kids), and we all attended Catholic schools... this is where I started learning Spanish. I have studied it (and English Literature) for many years, then eventually won a scholarship to study/travel in Mexico for six months. I returned from Mexico fluent, graduated from college with honors in language and Humanities, then decided to go live in Washington, DC to use that language. I got into corporate training, working 10 years at Fannie Mae as I traveled to 38 of the 50 states to help them train banks on their fina
ncial systems. I later began working in healthcare, and got certified as an interpreter AND as an Instructional Designer. I have designed educational programs ever since at hospitals, schools, educational centers, retail organizations, and with higher education (now at GWU). My hobbies include speaking Spanish, swimming, listening to jazz, playing with my daughter and my beagle.

If you are looking for a Spanish teacher look no further! Naomi is a very skilled and phenomenal teacher. I have taken her class for the last 10 months and I truly can see the progress I have made with her teaching style. She not only has set lessons from the book, but she will bring real-world examples such as food, newspapers, and music! I recently traveled to the Dominican Republic and I was amazed at how easily I was able to hold a conversation. The people there let me know that my Spanish was very good. It was definitely a compliment for me. I believe that a student is only as good as their teacher. Naomi is the right teacher!

Naomi really takes the time to go over with you the culture and language of the people. She setup a lesson plan for me and established goals. I love her teaching style and I feel like I'm taking the time to learn again. If you're looking for a teacher who knows her stuff she is it!

Nicole S.

Mc Lean, VA

About Nicole

I currently have 28 piano/music students that I teach weekly. Both the students and I enjoy the piano lessons very much, and I am looking to teach it full-time. I have a natural way of communicating and teaching music and also make the experience very unique as I incorporate my own listening exercises, piano games, and reading techniques that help speed up the skill of playing piano. Children learn quickly with me and the parents have been the best with recommending me to their family and/or neighbors and becoming piano students themselves! Thank you for that! Piano is fun, therapeutic, and ac
ademic.
Every year I have a music recital, where my students perform pieces that they have been working on. Most times, my students perform on their own, but we also have groups that perform together. This is a very special time for all of us. When you become my student, you join a music community.

Some of my music history include:
A general music reading course in college
I also have 7 plus years in piano lessons, 2 years in violin, and 3 plus years in choir, voice, and sight reading. I also taught myself how to play guitar as a teenager.

For Health and Fitness:
I've been a personal trainer and I have a Master of Science in Nutrition and Physical Activity. There are key specifics with trying to body build or weight loss that involve both exercise and eating habits. With my experience in training, I know I can help anyone get to their max potential in their goals. I love teaching health and breaking down the science so my students understand how the body works.

Currently, I teach 7 courses throughout the semester as a PE college professor. I love my work and love sharing my passion for health to the next generation. I'm a very passionate person and love to motivate youth into finding and making their dreams a reality.
