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.

Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.

For homework, Samir sent me several videos of Moroccan dialect. We discussed the vocabulary during the lesson; as always, he provided many examples to demonstrate the broader usage of the words. He is a skilled teacher. Highly recommended.

She is very professional, always on time and very communicative with regards to his homework and schedule. He’s now preformed both for family and friends, and also in front of an audience.

About Eirene
My name is Eirene and I love learning languages. I grew up in Canada and the U.S. and have traveled to over 20 countries. Whenever I have some free time, I love to listen to podcasts, chat with my native speaker friends and travel at every opportunity I get. This year, I was in Tanzania, where I studied Swahili for 2 months. Other than studying and teaching language, I also love cooking, drawing and taking walks around the city.

--

My teaching style is very much student-led, teacher-guided. As a teacher, I mold every class to complement my student's preferences and needs. We work on grammar and vocabulary through book materials and exercises but also engaging activities like movies and music.

As a non-native Spanish speaker (Spanish if my 4th language, after French), I hope I can shed light on how Spanish is structured, and how
it works--and also help you meet your Spanish goals, whether it be work, travel or personal.

Feel free to write to me as well with any questions you have. Looking forward to connecting. Chau!

Eirene is a patient and diligent teacher who helped transform my limited knowledge of Spanish--mainly from TV--into practical, everyday skills. She broke down concepts in digestible ways, often referencing French (my other language) so that I could better understand a certain topic or concept. What's more, she also always kept the focus on conversation, which I really appreciated, particularly since that's the area I want to work on most. In short, if you're looking for someone dependable, kind and always rooting for your success, you should look no further than Eirene.
