Enrico C.

Los Angeles, CA

I have a B.A. in Foreign Languages and Literature issued by the University of Verona, Italy.

I have studied French for several years and I tutored it in the past. I will be very good to teach beginner to intermediate level.

About ENRICO

I am a native Italian speaker with a several years of experience in teaching Italian and English. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.

I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Verona, Italy. I was tutoring English, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching English while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to Los Angeles. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime
I tutored Italian to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and Italian subjects.

I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker, I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities. However, it is important to consider other points like grammar, reading, writing. I also think that no matter what a teacher should always take into account the needs of the students and subsequently I plan my classes reflecting on the student's demands.

As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting. Of course, there are some exceptions. For instance, in the past I taught for a while TOEFL and for that type of classes I used more traditionalist and academic methods and materials.

I have been taking French lessons with Joya for three months. Joya is knowledgable in French and French culture, as well as patient and responsible as a teacher. I also appreciate her being accommodating to my schedule. I am a full-time phd student, hoping to learn some French in the limited time I have. She planned for lessons based on my requests, utilizing each one-hour lesson. I enjoy learning French with her and recommend her as a French teacher.

Kevin K.

Los Angeles, CA

Allons-y! I've spent 40 years with the French language, including 3 years in Dijon teaching at the University and working in the theatre, and 3 more years teaching French Conversation at U.C. San Diego. I'm as comfortable enhancing clients' spoken ability and writing as I am explaining all those grammatical nuances that make people crazy (comme, par exemple, le passé composé vs. l'imparfait).

About Kevin

Kevin has dedicated over 30 years as a teacher, counselor, and health practitioner. He's a huge believer in a process that not only generates strong measurable results, but also cultivates the whole human being and helps foster smart, clear, creative people. Whether it's for school, testing, jobs, or nutrition, he supports clients in active problem-solving through thinking for themselves.

He's taught at institutions ranging from the Université de Dijon to Phillips Andover Academy to U.C. San Diego. In 2012 he was invited to lead seminars on written self-expression in China and Taiwan.

Kevin also served for 10 years as a Chinese Herbalist and Nutritional Consultant with the renowned Tea Garden Herbal Emporium in Los Angeles.

Kevin is a great French teacher. He is patient and helpful and is able to provide instruction in a very peaceful, non-intimidating manner. After each lesson with Kevin I can see progress. As an adult learner I worried that I would not be able to grasp the concepts of a new language but working with Kevin has given me new confidence that I will be able to do it. Merci beaucoup, Kevin!

College Admissions · In studio
Kevin has been a true friend to me since day one. While doing my brother's college application process and essays, he also guided my transfer application. Then, since my graduation, he's counseled me first on internships and now on a formal job search in Finance and Investment. His integrity towards work and life has been so important. He's carefully led me to discover the best parts of myself, but won't hesitate to give me a proper kick in the butt when I need one. The only way to describe his program is professional, intimate, and inspiring. One truly great plus of working with Kevin over the years is his range and experience. Whatever field you are in, he's always able to make connections to your passion and lead you toward clarity in resumes, cover letters, and interview prep. To say that Kevin's been a mentor to me over the years I've known him is an understatement. He's as much family as anything else.

Glenn is a wonderful instructor. His work with our 15 year old daughter, who's a 3rd year French student, has been extremely helpful as he provides a richer, more enjoyable learning experience. She has gained so much from his patience and dedication to the finer points of the language, which has made a notable difference in the classroom. Thanks so much!!
