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 Yulia
Born in Russia, I studied at Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory (Master of Arts/Voice) and am a graduate of Bern Opera Studio in Bern, Switzerland (Master of arts/Opera). For 3 years I worked in a children music school as a voice teacher and have taught privately.

"Yulia is a special and unique artist, able to hold her own on any stage in the world”  (Daniel Rigazzi, Stage Director at Metropolitan Opera in NYC).
 
 My debut as a professional opera singer was with the State Theater Bern, Switzerland in 2010.
I have also performed with Theater Biel (Switzerland), Ash Lawn Opera Festival, Opera Ischia (Italy), Dicapo Opera Theater NYC, Great Moscow Hall, Vocal Productions NYC and Opera
Camerata, Smetana Hall in Praue, Carnegie Hall in NYC and many others.
In 2014, I made my debut at the Carnegie Hall with Steven Crawford, pianist and
assistant conductor of Metropolitan Opera.

In January 2018, I performed at Smetana Hall in Prague, Czech Republic with conductor Alfredo Sorichetti and New World Symphony Orchestra. In April 2018, I performed soprano solo in Brahm’s German Requiem with Easton Choral Society in Easton.
In June 2018, I successfully performed World Premier of the Oratorio for the Fallen by E. Dubois in Saint-Clair in France. And in July 2018, I performed at the Rossini Festival “Case Sonore” in Monteleone, Italy with renown Rossini bass Bruno Pratico and pianist Carlo Pari.
Recently, in December 2018, I sang Soprano Solo in Christmas Oratorio by Saint-Saëns with Easton Choral Arts Society in Easton, MD, and had my debut at Teatro Annibal Caro in Civitanova Alta, Italy with maestro Alfredo Sorichetti and Orchestra Sinfonica Puccini.
Some of my future performances include US-premiere of the mono-opera by Hubarenko “The Love Letters” at Carnegie Hall in New York (July 2019) with maestro Yuriy Yanko, “Ah, perfido” by Beethoven at Vienna Konzerthous and Classical Music Concert at Vienna Musikverein in Austria (May 2019), Elekta's role in Strauss' opera Elektra at the Salzburg Great Hall of Mozarteum in Austria (May 2020) with conductor Ernest Hoetzl and Thueringen Philharmonic Orchestra, and many other various operatic and concert series performances in USA, Italy, Austria, Russia and France.

Yulia is an amazing teacher and great singer. She is very passionate about teaching and my sessions with her are fun and very educational. She is quick to pinpoint issues and rectifying them using different techniques to attain correct voice. For a complete novice in singing, I have learned a lot in a very short period, thank you Yulia. I highly recommend her.

I worked with Yulia to improve my vocal technique and coach my Russian repertoire. Yulia knows about technique and music more then many known teachers! She helped me a lot and I would definitely recommend her as a vocal instructor if you are just starting to sing or if you are an advanced singer.

About Rachael
I am a professional artist, teacher, linguist, and lifelong learner. I graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a Masters degree in Jewish Studies and scholarships in Hebrew language and Pedagogy. I have had fine art displayed in New York and Tel Aviv and have won national and international awards for it including the Simon Weisenthal Center's Cartoonists against the Holocaust Award and had work displayed at the Makor Gallery's Amendicons exhibit. I am a Grumbacher certified acrylics and drawing instructor. I have also helped teach children part time since I graduated high school in 2007. I currently teach adult Hebrew students at Berlitz language center and tutor elementary school students one-on-one with Varsity Tutors.

Drawing and Painting students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. Every stud
ent has a unique style. I teach students to use their artistic license to apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual form of expression. I can help any student draw and paint with freedom and confidence while simultaneously teaching technique.

I teach Hebrew students of different ages and experience levels. I studied Biblical and Modern Hebrew for over 12 years, and have taught Hebrew for over five years. I can teach students to read, write, speak, and understand Hebrew on a beginner or intermediate level depending on the goals and preference of the individual student.

I took piano lessons for many years and participated in a choir after that. I love music and would love working with beginner piano students to help them learn technique and basic pieces and perhaps even improvisation.

I am a native speaker of English and would be interested in applying my language learning knowledge to teaching English to those who need it. I would be interested in working to meet the needs and goals of students and teaching them reading, writing, speaking, and listening.

I hope I can be of service. Thanks for your interest!

About Paige
I have been tutoring for about 10 - 12 years, since high school. I started with elementary reading and math and then moved into English, writing, reading, math, and history. I then professionally tutored to put myself through college. There I got nationally certified as a tutored and I specialize in English, Writing, and Language Arts. I served for a couple years as a teaching assistant as well. After I graduated, I went overseas to Kenya and taught math and English there as well. Now that I am back in the states, I have been tutoring a couple of students in English, Reading, and Math.
My approach is to help the student create habits that they can sustain to be successful and find what works for them. I am here to supplement the concepts that are already being taught, and in some cases, pick up objectives that teachers have neglected to t
each. I do more than just teach, I help students study, take tests, and understand how to navigate through school and classes, amidst of the many distractions - because honestly, that's one of the biggest factors.
