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!!

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 Emi
I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada by Japanese parents. I was privileged with different kinds of learning opportunities including piano, Japanese language, ice skating, ballet, skiing and martial arts. After high school I attended university where I majored in Piano performance.

Over the last 10 years I have tutored all ages for piano and Japanese and learned how to be patient, persistent and to just be able to adjust and accommodate to different kinds of learning styles and abilities. I realized that it’s important to have a structure in your teaching styles and have clear expectations, standards and goals. Making certain modifications to your teaching styles along the way is crucial as well to meet individual student needs. I believe in setting high standards for students is an important way to get them to rise to their pote
ntial.

In my free time I love to go on a short hike, explore new restaurants or see a live music show.

About Peter
Hi, I'm Peter and I know a lot about food. More so than most people should, I'm a bit obsessed. My wife and friends have finally had enough of me going on and on about my food passion, so now I'm here to unburden them a bit by sharing it with you as well! I will not only teach you how to make recipes step by step (boring, but sometimes necessary), but I will also teach you flavor theory, technique, history, composition and other fundamentals to make you a better cook and gourmand. This can culminate in assignments to help you create your own recipes that I can help critique and edit. If you don't want or need the full experience, I can also simply help you on a one-off basis to put out interesting dishes for that ever important date, special occasion, or anytime meal.

About Vinit
I am a professional chemical engineer, born and brought up in India, graduated with PhD in chemical engineering from University of Delaware. Picked up cooking early on to satisfy my own deep desire of traditional home food be it dal baati, dal dhokali, dal dhokala, lahasuni aloo sang makka roti, kadi with bajara roti, kaju ker, pachkuta, rabori, mungodi (sorry for using traditional names as there is no real short translation of these into English language)...and did not realize that it had become my passion until my dear family/friends started pointing out repeatedly. Over time my research background has infused some serious curiosity to understand the underlying science behind the art of cooking (do you know what is the secret to delicious Indian food - is it the minimum overlap of flavors in ingredients!!) and have started rethinking th
e recipes e.g. try making bread pakoda (fritter) keeping bread in the inner core and potato paste on outside instead of traditional way of doing it other way round...does it taste better and easier to coat with the wet gram flour for frying??). Cooking for me has become an endless joyful journey filled with learning and experimentation...always refreshing. Now, I try to share/teach my cooking experiences/excursions with others as time permits.
