Giulia is fantastic! She listened to my needs and started getting me going in the right direction right away. She's clearly passionate about music and is equally enthusiastic about teaching. I've learned a lot in a short period of time, and I feel more confident and "at home " singing!

Giulia, quite simply, is the best. Very patient, especially with someone trying to speak Italian with a Southern accent. Her lessons proceed in a very linear and logical way, aiding retention. She also delivers excellent fundamental rules of thumb that help a lot when encountering new material. And all of this is delivered in a superior style that combines equal parts gentle prompting and sound teaching techniques with a soupçon of Florentine humor and zest. My highest rating!

I have been teaching Italian for 3 years in British public and private schools. My students develop not only knowledge of the language but also understanding of the Italy. I am passionate about my country and I like to teach Italian for that reason! With a degree in teaching I have learn to use a variety of learning methods to best suite my students: mnemonic, musical or using movements. Languages don't need to be boring!

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

I provide customized lessons based on the student's specific need. I believe immersion is the best way to learn a language (that is how I learned English), therefore I try to minimize English interactions during the lessons. I also give practical exercises for the students to do between lessons. Unless specially requested by the students, my lessons are not grammar-heavy but are more focused on useful Italian conversations to help the students become comfortable speaking and understanding.

I can give you a huge head start in Italian if you just started learning. I've studied the Italian language for over 7 years now, started in high school and because of the close proximity with Spanish I have developed a moderate professional pro-efficiency.

I highly recommend my Italian classes for people who want to improve their speaking skills as I can relate to my learning path and have extensive oral and written exercices to fill your heads with Dante Alighieri's master piece. Ciao Ragazzi!
