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 Florentina
I am teacher since I was an adolescent. Always wanted to do everything it takes so my pupils take what they need from my lessons, understand and assimilate all the information, and also live with the desire of coming back and continuing with me the journey in the field they have selected.
Many of my students became my close friends that I go to see operas, broadway shows , concerts or other cultural and entertaining events with.
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.

Florentina is outstanding! She is incredible with my son, and I’m constantly amazed by how well he connects with her on the lessons. 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. He continues to enjoy and look forward to lessons. Florentina is highly recommended.

About Patricia
Currently, I am an assistant teacher for the local public school system. I have 20+ years of experience in teaching grades k-8 and 5 years experience of teaching Spanish. Spanish students can expect to improve week to week in areas such as vocabulary, grammar, and constructive conversational skills.

I teach my students to understand and embrace the beauty of Latin culture which then creates a large appreciation for loving and learning the language. Spanish, now more than ever, has become essential in the workplace and more and more people are seeking opportunities to learn this growing language. Even children are excited to learn Spanish!
I am excited to work with grades k-12 and can help if you are a college aged+ and trying to learn Spanish!

Some of my passions are teaching, traveling, and sitting on the beach and listening to
waves! If you are someone who wants to learn a new language or want help for you children to learn, I believe that with my expertise and your dedication we could reach your goals of achieving and mastering a new language!

About Raghad
I am a known Syrian actress, I have a Bachelor degree in acting and I was a teacher's assistant acting in the Higher Institute of Dramatic Arts in Syria for six years, that is why I have teaching skills. And with both my teaching skills and love for Arabic language I decided to be an Arabic tutor four years ago. I have a very good experience in Arabic tutoring both in Lebanon and the United States of America.

I arrived to the United States of America recently, and this is a great thing because my Arabic is still fresh and strong. I try my best not to use English during my classes to help students learn as much as they can, and to do so I love my lessons to be challenging but at the same time full of fun and energy. I use my experience as an actress to deliver language in a creative way. while taking a lesson with me you are not only
learning language but also you are learning how to have a perfect pronunciation and to know how to improve your Arabic speech skills.

I give an unconventional Arabic lessons with a lot of activities such as cooking Arabic food with my students, watching Arabic movies and discuss it and many other activities related to Arabic language and culture. With children I use drama games and games in general to make learning Arabic a fun thing to do. I try my best to make my classes full of passion and enthusiasm. I am currently a fellow teacher with GLN (Global Languages Network), GLN is an NGO located in Washington DC. I also give Private Arabic tutor both in Virginia and DC for children and adults.

I chose to tutor Arabic not because it was my specialization at university but because I love Arabic, I really enjoy tutoring Arabic but what makes me continue is my students feed back, and the feeling that they are enjoying my class, and the moment I lose this is the moment when I quit tutoring.

Raghad is a great Arabic teacher. Since taking lessons with her, my Arabic speaking skills have improved beyond my expectations. My vocabulary of the Syrian dialect has also increased which is further enhancing my speaking and listening skills. I would recommend Raghad to anyone who wants to learn the Syrian dialect or to improve their overall Arabic skills

About Macs
I am a professor in French with a PhD from Princeton University and a bachelors from the College of William and Mary. I've taught all levels of French at Princeton over the past six years. As a researcher I'm an expert on Paris, street art, and parkour. I can tell you anything you want to know about French architecture. While I don't actually do graffiti or parkour, I do participate in a lot of theater and have acted in and directed plays in French and English. I've traveled all over the world to study French theater, even to Tokyo, and I have come to the conclusion that everyone would benefit from watching theater in languages they don't understand.

Macs is a marvelously effective teacher. I took French language classes under him in Paris and Avignon as a part of a larger program in France, and at the time, I had absolutely no experience with the language. Macs accomplished the impossible task of making proficient French speakers of me and a few other beginners as quickly as possible, so that we could buy food, understand daily French theater performances, and keep up with class discussions and lectures (the main parts of the program). Lessons with Macs were efficient, productive, and enjoyable. I still to this day have a better grasp on the language than friends who have spent much longer in French classes, all thanks to Macs.

Macs was the best language teacher I've ever had. Not only does he epitomize professionalism, but he finds a way to connect with each of his students on a personal level and get the best out of them. I've watched Macs teach students of all levels, and all of us found him engaging, energetic, and deeply knowledgable. Macs' vast repertoire of pedagogic techniques, games, and other ways to invigorate his lesson plans made sure that every lesson was new, fun, and interesting, while managing to actually articulate important information as well. I could go on and on... In a group or one-on-one setting, I can't recommend Macs enough.

I cannot recommend Macs highly enough! I was lacking so much confidence before I started lessons with him, and he has helped me grow so much. I now feel confident in all areas of French, especially speaking, and he has managed to give me a strong grasp of grammar along the way! I never felt like I had to work hard, everything was so natural and he put me so much at ease that it felt like just a normal conversation with a friend, but I learnt so much grammar along the way! His explanations are always super clear and he really knows his stuff, but it never feels boring. He has loads of exciting and different ways of teaching, from theatre exercises to watching YouTube clips, but also manages to make sure you reach your goals and learn everything on your syllabus. Really really friendly and helpful teacher and such a kind guy, I would absolutely recommend Macs!!

About William
I have been tutoring since 2014 when I worked in Spanish elementary school. Prior to that, I graduated from Exeter Univeristy with a Master's in Social and Political Philosophy and a Bachelor's degree in Politics from the University of Leicester. I also was employed by the prestigous tutoring service Titanium Tutors in London.

I teach Philosophy, Political Sciences, and History up to advanced level having covered these subjects extensivley over my college career. I can teach Spanish up to intermediate level having lived in Spain and studied at school, as well as English, Geography, and Religion. I am also happy teaching writing skills and preparing for exams.

I believe the best way for students to learn is through a dialogue, for them to show they understand. To acheive this, I avoid lecturing and rote learning. Instead, I set out cl
ear learning objectives at the start and then ask appropriate questions to ascertain the student's understanding throughout our lessons together. This way my lessons are personable, and geared towards the individual student's needs.

I also believe learning should be enjoyable. I create a fun, enthusiastic lesson environment. I have worked with students of all ages and have built good rapport with them all. I look forward to getting to know you and starting working together soon!

Julia is amazing. I have been tutored before but it always ended with frustration and lose of interest. Julia is the opposite of that. She is always prepared with very personalized lessons specific to what you wanna learn. At no point did I feel like she was trying to fit me into her mold. She tailors her teaching to me and what I am interested in, and adapts well when I am struggling. She clearly demonstrates her dedication to her students through the amount of preparation she puts in and has the teaching background to overcome learner difficulties. I very much suggest Julia for other Spanish learners at all levels.
