About Massimo
My name is Massimo, I was born and I spent all my life in Italy since I moved, three year ago in US with my family for a new great adventure. I am so enthusiastic to be able to share with you the knowledge of the language of the greatest poets and writers, knowledge of one of the most beautiful country in the world, rich of history and art, and why not share "in Italian" some of the most terrific recipes for the most refined palate.

The classes in Italian cuisine are tailored to your interests and your skill level. I can teach you how to prepare a "quick win" dinner for all the family or to prepare "single size" amazing meals ready for all the week. I can teach how to make handmade pasta with semolina or with whole wheat. Have you ever tasted a terrific Tiramisu...with strawberries?

How I understand I can be a good Italian tutor,
patient, helpful and always ready to arouse the attention of my students? My youngest son, Vietnamese, is the best proof of my skill. He was able to speak a really good Italian in less than three months. Then I found to be "good" with adults as well. I started to teach Italian to some friends and after to friends of friends .... and it worked again!

Key word? Talk, watch, read, listen and talk again!
I am aware the Italian has one of the most complex grammars, but I also know that speaking and reading and watching Italian movies, soccer game or Television News makes automatic to learn the basic rules useful for a good conversation. We can use a really simple grammar book to support with the basic rules up to more advanced grammar books if we may need.

My tutoring approach is focus on student's weaknesses and strengths: use the seconds to correct the firsts. What it is important is to work on what you really like (movie, politics, receipts, actors, history, vacations, ...) and I promise it works. I already experienced this approach with a lot of students and friends who want to speak Italian and know Italy ...waiting for a great vacation "nel Bel Paese".
I try to be flexible with time and I offer makeup classes in case of 24 hours cancellation. I have an quite full equipped office at home but I am available to travel if it is more convenient for the students.
I hope see you soon.. A presto!!

It was a good start. I like that he spoke to me in Italian and wanted me to say some things in Italian. I’m looking forward to the end hoping that I will be somewhat fluent.

We had a great time learning from Massimo. You can't learn the proper consistence of pasta dough from a book or video. We will be using all the techniques we learned. The marinara sauce he taught us to make was simple, but delicious. We will definitely call on Massimo again.

About Taro
Hi. I'm a native Japanese speaker from Kobe. I was born and raised there and speak both standard Japanese and Kobe dialect. I'm an expert at bringing one's overall language level from the beginner to intermediate. I will assist you more with English first if you're a beginner and gradually transition to using only Japanese as you get closer to an intermediate level.

Taro Taguchi is a fantastic teacher. He is highly knowledgeable, prepared, and always willing to help throughout the week. Along with being expedient in his responses, he is always capable of answering any questions clearly and concisely. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn Japanese. Happy to rate him 5 stars, and would give more if I could!

About Florentina
I am teacher since I was an adolescent. Always wanted to do everything it takes so my pupils take everything they need from my lessons, understand and assimilate all the information and live with the desire of coming back and continue with me the journey in the field they have had selected.
Many of my students became my close friends that I go to see operas, broadway shows , concerts or other cultural and entertaining events.
I also organize recitals and interesting meetings with the participation of my students.
For any additional information, contact me and I will answer in no time.

Great teacher. She assessed my level at the beginning and has given me plenty of work to improve my piano and voice. She's classically trained, and that definitely influences her instruction and approach. Her understanding of my goals and flexibility in lessons makes the lessons personal and individualized.
