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 ...

Teach what YOU want to learn. Focus on your weakness and improve it. Outline your strengths and highlight them. To teach at my home studio be alert I have a cat and a dog - so allergies are considered. Also must be able to walk up stairs to my apt. Very nice area and free curbside parking.

Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!

Monem B. Lakewood, CA

I'm French native speaking tutor and i'm teaching it since one month. I can help on developing your skills in french, help on homeworks, prepare for tests,.
I will also work on the Style which is traditionally concerned with clarity, elegance, and precision. An effective stylist is not only able to write clearly for an audience, but can also please them with evocative language, metaphors, rhythm, or figures of speech. Effective stylists take pains not just to make a point, but to make it well.

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).

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.

My relationship with Kevin has been a long and unceasing one. Kevin started to work with me when I was just 14 years old, and for the past six years he has served as my teacher, my mentor and my friend. From boarding school and college applications to internships, he has always managed to challenge my limitations and help translate my thoughts and goals into articulate and meaningful essays. Most importantly he never tried to impose his own ideas. Instead he managed to coax out what was truly important in me, and encouraged self-honesty. Now I'm a rising junior in college. Kevin helped identify and organize the key components of my past experiences and personal characteristics, and integrated that into a search for internships, a cover letter and resume, and interview prep. The result of his efforts showed when I was accepted as an early admit into a highly competitive program in Washington DC next year. When my post-college job seeking begins a year from now, I'll be back. I highly recommend Kevin as an integral partner in the career building process. His vast experiences and insightfulness will help simplify the search and give you a competitive edge in the market.

Life Coaching · Online
Retaining Kevin as a Career Counselor and Life Coach is proving to be one of the best decisions I ever made. He is a passionate professional, offering a combination of warmth and expertise that generates meaningful results.

I came to Thumbtack frustrated with my stagnant job search and with the intent to hire a professional to freshen my résumé. Kevin offers so much more; on reading his Thumbtack and Counsel-Ink profiles, I immediately knew that I wanted to work with him. The kind way in which he articulates his balanced, holistic approach won my confidence that he would be sensitive to my struggles around career-related matters.

Kevin is generous in his communications as we discuss engagement options, and our work has been fruitful from the get-go. He is thoughtful in how he paces us, direct both in probing and providing feedback to keep momentum, and careful as he guides me in mining my personal history to inform my current goals. He works intuitively, constantly auditing my responses, and is at all times respectful of my limits while encouraging me to explore and meet places of internal challenge. He is fully invested in the importance of this work.

Kevin is a true advocate for my personal growth, and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to work with him.

I adapt my teaching to what works best for each student, using a variety of material and a combination of written worksheets, oral repetition and total physical response.
