Lisa is amazing at teaching. I was looking for singing lessons since a friend of mine asked to sing at her wedding and I am grateful I found Lisa. She has help me with the song, gave me vocal and breathing techniques to reach high tones and even fix the guitar tablatures to match my voice to play it at the wedding. I will keep taking more lessons!!

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.

Had our first lesson with Julissa and the experience was painless lol! My daughter was reticent at first but warmed easily. She thought she might not understan Julissa because of her accent but that was not a problem. All in all a great mathematic experience.

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 very knowledgeable, professional, and super easy to be with! She's also very supportive, and although my determination to practice hard pieces and new techniques can sometimes dip, I always leave our sessions feeling renewed and eager to continue my mission. I can't recommend her enough!

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.

About Taylor
I am TESOL Certified and have been teaching for five years. My favorite part of teaching is the student. The trials and tribulations the student faces throughout the learning process is nothing short of challenging. It is important to have an experienced and caring teacher and mentor there to guide the student through the difficult cirriculum. I am proud to say that I have been that teacher and mentor countless times. I love to challenge my students to push through a demanding cirriculum only to come out stronger and acheive their goals!

My experience has only been gainful through trial and error and without students this would not be possible. This job is not only wonderful because I love to challenge myself and students, but also because of how rewarding it is for both the student and myself.

Let's reach your goals together!
