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.

About Uzma
I achieved my Juris Doctor at California Western School of Law in April of 2016, but a traditional law career is not one that I envision for myself. I want a career that is meaningful, gives me purpose, and has a positive effect on other people's lives. Prior to law school, I honed my writing and editing skills and worked full-time as a certified teacher. I worked on creating school curriculums for school districts in the United States. The more work I do, the more solidified my goal to help anyone in whatever capacity I can.

My past students are from different corners of the world, age groups, generations, and lifestyles. It was a pleasure helping them navigate the complex rules of the English language.

In my free time, I enjoy creative writing, journalism, and yoga. My poems have been published in books, my news articles published b
y various news outlets.

I want to live a life that shares my skills with others. I know I am lucky to have such a strong language background, and I firmly believe I am meant to share this with others.

Let me know what your language goals are, and I can create a specific curriculum to make sure you achieve those goals.

About Norma
We all live once in this lifetime, I believe that my way of choosing paths has made become a stronger person.
With handling my problems, I've become a great listener, and make solutions work. I dont just teach. I'm a good learner. I love to learn from people. That's how I am the instructor that I am.
Not everyone is a teacher. But when you do get there.
You're a good inspiration for all that's around you.
My question is, "if you weren't given/shown choices in life, then how can you know you are doing right or wrong?"
