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.

One of my greatest passion is to cook. I was extremely lucky to be taught and introduced to the art of cooking by my grandmother. She was born at the beginning of the previous century and she lived in different cities so she got accustomed to different traditions and shared them with me. I love to cook for smaller groups, using traditional Italian ingredients to prepare simple, but exquisite dishes that belong to the tradition of my native country. If you want to experience some real Italian food, you are definitely in the right hands. Just sit back, relax sip a glass of Italian wine while I cook for you and I share my art.

From the get go I knew I had found the perfect teacher,
Enrico is a motivating teacher.
He challenges you to learn what you need by reading and discussing interesting materials he sends .it isn't just not doing verbs exercises and tenses but actually participating in actual situations as if you were in Italy .
Enrico quickly helps you get over the nervousness that students experience when reading out loud and discussing the meaning of words in sentences and their uses.

I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

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!!

Florence C.

Marina del Rey, CA

My love for languages and other cultures stirred me towards the profession where it applied the most.
As a teacher, I am also allowed to be the constant learner my nature demands.
As a learner of other languages, I am perpetually looking at how things could be done differently, and teaching gives me a chance to experience with them in turn.

About Florence

I use a very personable approach where I constantly adapt to my students needs. I strongly believe in building up people's confidence. Because I have learned several languages myself, I know well what holds us back in actually applying the language(s) we learn in class settings.
This is why I also complement my lessons with immersion activities, via my club, Le Petit Ensemble. There, people can loosen up, and focus on other things, rather than remaining too self-aware of their insecurity with the language.

Monique A.

Brea, CA

I've been teaching French for six years and my students have gone on to improve their grade substantially. Within the first few lessons, you'll get a better understanding of the material learned in class or if you are a new beginner, you will be able to read and speak basic French. I use different grammar and reading books depending on your level and make you practice with speaking and written exercises to vary the learning process. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I would be thrilled to meet you!

About Monique

I share my love of the French language by helping students master the difficulties inherent to the study of a new language. Their success is my pride and reward and my goal is to make them achieve the best results.
I look forward to meeting with you soon.
Au plaisir!
