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.

ALL AGES, SKILL LEVELS & STYLES WELCOME:
Whether you are a beginner shower-singer, a talented professional looking to improve your technique/stamina, a motivated actor/actress, a karaoke night aficionado, a parent searching for activities for your children, a recording artist in need of coaching in the studio or on stage, or a songwriter on the way to finding your voice to share your music with the world, I can help you master your instrument and take you to the next level.

LESSON CONTENT:
We will design our lessons together to make sure they are geared towards your own specific needs. H
ere are some things we can work on: traditional vocal technique, stylistic interpretation (contemporary styles: pop, R&B, soul, rock, blues, jazz, EDM), breathing, increasing range, warm-up exercises, diction, posture, belting, placement, resonance, power, stamina, scales, ear training, music theory, pitch control, microphone/stage technique, recording technique, repertoire, playing your favorite songs, accompanying yourself on piano/keyboard, improvisation, performance anxiety, vocal health, songwriting, and more! Learning music is an ongoing journey.

I offer 1:1 support in the comfort of your home with fun, yet educational lessons, personalized to fit your needs.

A FEW FACTS ABOUT ME:
I am a professional vocalist, music teacher, and piano instructor.
I graduated summa cum laude from Berklee College of Music.
I am an endorser of Daisy Rock Guitars.
I have been actively performing since age 13. My parents are musicians, too!
I have toured internationally (Europe, Asia, Middle East, Caribbean, US).
I am also a songwriter: my first solo album was released thanks to a successful Indiegogo online crowd-funding campaign.
I am bi-lingual (I grew up on a sailboat on a French island in the Caribbean).
I am patient, open-minded, versatile, friendly, and professional.
I have a passion for helping others and teaching: the first voice lessons and music classes I taught were as a volunteer for a music program helping underserved communities while I was in college.

Natacha M.

Los Angeles, CA

My name is Natacha M. I grew up in Alsace region of France, on the border of Germany, trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, and worked in the hospitality and tourism industries in France, the U.K., Australia, Dubai, and for the past 8 years, the US.
My experience learning to speak German and English led me to develop the method.

I offer online private classes at levels desired by our students. I start by evaluating their needs and goals and make a plan for how to best meet them.

“Go-With-the-Flow” French Classes & Conversation.

Many people have tried learning French by using the traditional academic approach, and quit because they found it too difficult, intimidating or boring. That style of education is not for everyone.

Learning is always easier when it’s fun and entertaining. That’s how we teach French. I call it the “Go-With-the-Flow” method. This approach involves classes that are focused on your interests and needs, and conversations unique to France. We talk about Fren
ch food, wine, cheese, lifestyle and really anything our students want to discuss. We speak in French and English so no one gets lost. Mademoiselle French thinks it’s the most effective way to learn a foreign 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!
