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 Taro
こんにちは

My name is Taro, and I am from Kobe. I have been teaching Japanese since 2015 to students of all ages.

Learning a new language could be difficult. The initial reason I came to the US was to learn English. I eventually finished Tulane University and American University for my BA and MA, but I struggled with English in the beginning.

I had got comfortable with my English after some time, and since I have been interested in learning languages, I also learned Spanish. Through the process, I have learned effective ways to learn a new language, which I will be sharing with you.

One of the most important things while learning a new language is to develop a solid foundation of the basics. Once you have developed the basics, the rest will come with less effort. So I like giving structures to my students using different core ma
terials so they can get the basics right.

In addition, I use Google Sheet in which you can see all the lessons and homework in one document. This simplifies the learning process which enables you to keep track of the materials you are covering.

Students have different reasons for studying Japanese, so I give customization based on the need of each student outside the core materials.

I am glad that you are interested in learning Japanese. Japan has a beautiful culture, and I look forward to helping you get to the level you desire so you can have a renewed appreciation for what Japan offers.

I have been taking Japanese lessons with Taro Sensei for about 5 months. He is a very patient and organized instructor. He designs the teaching material based on my specific level and goals. I enjoy the fun conversation with him during every lesson. My Japanese skill has improved gradually as time goes by. Thank you Taro Sensei.

Taguchi Sensei has helped improve my Japanese tremendously! Not only is he able to accommodate my sometimes crazy schedule, but he's very patient while learning, will go in-depth on topics I don't quite understand and will provide exercises for me on those topics. He's personal, so we use real-time situations from my life to practice with (describing my day at work, where my cats are, what I ate, etc.)

When I visted Japan this year, I owe it to him that I was able to have the amazing experiences I did. Because of him, I was able to understand the language, the culture, and have the confidence in speaking with locals.

I appriciate all the help and encourgaement that he's provided.
ありがとうございます田口先生!

About Thomas
I am born and have grown up Deaf. I regularly communicate in American Sign Language (ASL).

During my time at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), I weekly met a few students and helped them with their ASL courses. I signed words and sentences to these students when they asked me questions.

After I have graduated from RIT, I have worked at two federal agencies for three years. At one of these federal agencies, I have participated in ASL courses by one-on-one signing words and sentences to tutees and by having these tutees copy these words and sentences in ASL.

I can provide ASL lessons in the alphabet, common signs, visual description, classifiers, sentence structure, facial expression, body language, specialized signs, and ethical or professional relationships with Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing people. In addition these le
ssons, I can explain how signs and sentence structure form.

About jeison
I was born in Medellín, Colombia and began teaching myself English as a kid, learning from American TV, movies, and music. Soon I was helping my friends and classmates learn English too, and teaching languages has been my passion ever since. I have a master's degree in Spanish Pedagogy and over nine years of teaching experience, and I am currently working on a doctorate in Education focused on teaching Spanish.

I have taught a wide range of students, from children with special needs to business executives and diplomats. I adapt my lessons to the needs and interests of each individual, but my methods always focus on practical language skills that my students will really use. My classes revolve around conversation, not textbooks, and go beyond standard grammar and vocabulary to include the cultural elements that influence how people truly
use the language.

I believe that anyone can become fluent in a foreign language, regardless of whether they are able to study abroad or not. If you are serious about learning, I can design a program of study that will take you as far as you want to go with Spanish. Even if you have had difficulty with foreign languages in the past, I can help you overcome those roadblocks and achieve remarkable results.

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

Very positive demeanor, which helps to learn when you might feel bad or self-conscious for butchering grammar/pronunciation, and fun to talk to. As a native speaker of Czech, she has a slight accent yet isn't difficult to understand, only had to stop to ask her for clarification two or three times over the course of an hour. Good pacing, was not overwhelmed but still remained engaged.

Before our first session even began, she was already helpful in providing some suggestions for culture to look up, such as popular artists in certain genres of music.

Then at the end of our first session,
she left me with a few straightforward assignments to learn from until our next lesson.

I've had a great first impression. I'll see where things go in the future. Děkuju, Eliška!

Eliška is an outstanding teacher. She is always well-prepared. She tailors the instruction to my strengths and weaknesses, even adjusting the level as we work together during the class hour, so I assume she teaches each student in individually shaped lessons. And she makes each session interesting and practical! I highly recommend her.
