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.

Emily's teaching exceeded all my expectations for the four lessons she gave me on healthy cooking. She arrived punctually, well-prepared, and brimming with cheerful, well-informed advice that allowed me to gain far more confidence with my efforts in the kitchen! I highly recommend her! I couldn't have been happier.

About Austin
Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church in Milpitas, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple y
et profound way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying

About Dave
I owned my own deli and drop-off catering business for years. I have worked in high end Country Clubs, private schools and large corporations like Marriott and Sodexo. My food philosophy is food tastes best in its natural state and healthy food can be delicious. I am lucky to be able to express my artistic side in the creation of food and I am positive people can learn to eat well, happily. I love all the different classes and events I am able to create and teach as well as the food we get to enjoy doing so! It's so much fun to meet new people every day and watch them learn!

The class was a blast. My wife and I gave each other a gift to take a cooking class from Dave Hammer. The lessons weren't too complicated and even an old guy like me was able to do it. A great date night for any couple. Highly recommended.

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.

Ms. McKinney was working as a 1:1 Para with her student who is a 6th grader. She has helped him to be more independent during math. She is doing this by stepping back and not being by his side. It allows him to be held accountable for his actions or lack of. She has encouraged him to raise his hand when he needs help as well as keeps his attention on the teacher and not on her. Untimately, her goal as a 1:1 Para is to get your student to be indenedent and not rely on the aid. She has done this very well to the point that her student no longer needed an aid (1:1 Para).

About Swetha
I love cooking. I generally cook for friends and family. They were asking how did you make this recipe. I was teaching them how to make those recipes .That's when I got the idea to teach online. I grew up in southern part of India . The culture is we cook our food everyday. I grew up learning my mom's cooking. Once i got married and moved to America that's when i started my own cooking. I explored different foods and tastes. My habit when i eat anywhere i try to explore the ingredients.
It's basically my nature. I have this deep enthusiasm for cooking . I am sure i can share what ever i have learnt and i can help all those who are willing to learn. I can spend extra time explaining the basics of Indian cooking. You can contact me with related questions anytime and i am happy to answer. I am looking forward to this opportunity to teach Ind
ian cooking.

About Devorah
California born and raised, UC Berkeley student, I love languages, travel, reading, and music. I've dedicated the past year to understanding which methods of language learning work, and which don't. I come from a community with a large immigrant population, and I want to give back to similar communities, or any individual who wants to learn the English language as an immersive cultural experience, immigrant or not. I teach in a personable, easygoing, but highly structured style.
