Abigail loves her lessons; I suggested to her that she let you know she has a personal cordless microphone & amplifier. I thought the usage of microphone would be cool to use. Of course, this was only a suggestion, what do you think?

Great Singing Teacher

Rebecca has helped me reach my goal of becoming a more accomplished choir member. I sing alto and before I took lessons with her, it was very difficult for me to stay on my part. She also helped me to breathe correctly and sing without straining my voice. I have learned SO MUCH from her, from how to warm up to how to project my voice so it can be heard. I am much more confident about my voice. She is a great teacher.

Lindsey is a very capable teacher who is a pleasure to work with.

Lindsey has an excellent manner of communicating her teaching method and applying it effectively. I really appreciate her level of patience with me and how open she is to experiment with different exercises and songs as well as always keeping in mind the goals I have for the lessons (extended vocal range and learning how to "belt out a song"). I am very pleased with having her as my voice instructor and would definitely recommend her to anyone hoping to increase their singing capabilities.

Massimo D. Annandale, VA

I am a native speaker of Italian and I can help with your classes or with practice conversation.

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 to 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?

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!

I have been studying Italian language for over three years. I got to the point where I was seeking to build my day to day conversational skills in Italian. Massimo has proved to be perfect for this task by sharing his practical approach to learning and practicing daily Italian conversation. Over the past year he has taught me to convey what is on my mind in Italian without feeling intimidated or worried about making mistakes, as this is all a part of learning to speak in Italian with confidence. He is patient, a very nice person, and he also a good sense of humor. This makes learning fun!
Our conversations are sprinkled with Italian cooking lessons, culture and geography. His teachings are lessons within lessons that have given me confidence to use my book learning in social settings.
I highly recommend learning Italian with Massimo. And if you are interested in home made, and easy Italian recipes, he has a lot to share. Some of Massimo’s favorite recipes that I have learned how to make and now use regularly are:
Strawberry Tiramisu (Tiramisu alle fragole)
Lasagna (le lasagne alla Bolognese; con besciamella) This is a red sauce and a while sauce and I use a crock pot to prepare the delicious red sauce.
Meatballs in tomatoe sauce (Polpette al sugo)
Italian flat bread with rosemary (Focaccia al Rosmarino)
Homemade fresh- ricotta cheese (ricotta formaggio)
I have also learned where and how to shop for the best ingredients from Massimo. We have had many conversations in Italian, on cooking Italian style.

I have always had difficulty learning a new language and the prospect of trying again was daunting but Massimo’s personality and approach immediately put me at ease. From the very first lesson with Massimo it was clear to me that he has a passion to help students achieve their potential regardless of their level or ability. He is not your traditional tutor who simply teaches from a text book (i.e. my high school language teachers), but he incorporates the Italian culture into his lessons and makes learning fun! Not only is Massimo an excellent tutor but he is flexible. I am a working professional so there have been occasions when I could not make our session due to travel or meetings, he has always worked with me to reschedule, which has been essential in my progress. I cannot say enough about how great Massimo has been as a tutor. As a side note, his cooking is stupendous. I have not taken a cooking class (but that is on my bucket list) but I have had the pleasure of dining at his house with his family and it was truly an unforgettable meal.
