About Enrico C.

I have a B.A. in Foreign Languages and Literature issued by the University of Verona, Italy.

I have studied French for several years and I tutored it in the past. I will be very good to teach beginner to intermediate level.

About ENRICO
I am a native Italian speaker with a several years of experience in teaching Italian and English. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.

I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Verona, Italy. I was tutoring English, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching English while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to Los Angeles. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime I tutored Italian to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and Italian subjects.

I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker,
I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities. However, it is important to consider other points like grammar, reading, writing. I also think that no matter what a teacher should always take into account the needs of the students and subsequently I plan my classes reflecting on the student's demands.

As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting. Of course, there are some exceptions. For instance, in the past I taught for a while TOEFL and for that type of classes I used more traditionalist and academic methods and materials.

*** Lesson Details ***
Customized lessons to the students' needs and goals.

*** Specialties ***
- T.E.F.L. Certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign Language

- Italian Native Speaker with a several year experience in teaching Italian

- M.A in Foreign Languages and Literature (English and French)

One of my greatest passion is to cook. I was extremely lucky to be taught and introduced to the art of cooking by my grandmother. She was born at the beginning of the previous century and she lived in different cities so she got accustomed to different traditions and shared them with me. I love to cook for smaller groups, using traditional Italian ingredients to prepare simple, but exquisite dishes that belong to the tradition of my native country. If you want to experience some real Italian food, you are definitely in the right hands. Just sit back, relax sip a glass of Italian wine while I cook for you and I share my art.

*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. Learning a foreign language is a part of your SELF DEVELOPMENT. Treat it as such.
2. I don't believe in "good or bad with languages" stereotype. If you really want to speak a new language I guarantee that my method will work for you.
3. All materials are created by me and edited by a group of talented language teachers and linguists. They are free and very useful no matter where, when and how you study Russian or French.

*****My Students*****

For over 7 years of professional experience as Russian/French/ESL teacher, I have worked with all types of students with different learning styles and various goals: taught within U.S. public education institutions, provided private classes for children and adults, developed and i
mplemented individualized syllabus for diplomats, high rank executives at multinational companies, employees of U.S. Embassy and Department of State.

Thanks to all my students, current and former, I am now confident that every individual, willing to learn one of the languages I teach, without a doubt, has everything it takes to succeed when the right approach is applied.

*****Program features*****

It is one on one program, thouroughtly personalized and organized according to your interests (general and professional), schedule, final goals, learning style and many other important elements to be taken into account.

Each session is 50 minutes.

Every session is prepared to reach a particular goal and structured in the way to have a maximum profit from "teacher - student" part of learning. Supporting materials are sent after each session: grammar notes, retention exercises, homework assignments, audio and video files as phonetic exercises and listening practice. The content of these materials is permanently tested and modified in order to achieve the best way to engage each individual student's language acquisition mechanisms.

Teacher's support 24/7.

Extra curricula content: idiomatic language components, cultural studies (traditions, history, literature, cinema and language related etymology), recommendations for independent language practice.

The way I see it, with each new student - there is a new process in my head that starts and constantly creates and improves techniques, ideas, method components, teaching style e.t.c for getting this particular student to do the best he or she can.

*****Recommendations*****

More recommendations can be provided upon request.

Roman helped me understand the grammar better by using repetition and real life applications of when to say what. The material is given to you by Roman in great detail with his modules and it also helped me expand my vocabulary a substantial amount thanks to his methods. He helped me understand Russian better. Definitely recommend !!!

About Bettina S.

Close

I am a seasoned language teacher, of both adults and children. Making languages come alive through interesting anecdotes, songs, and stories, is my specialty. My schooling, from age four to 14, was 100% in French. Boy, did those nuns drill us in grammar!

About Bettina
I lived in Israel for over a decade, and graduated from the University of Jerusalem with degrees in Education and History. I regularly read Torah, chant megillot, and lead services in my synagogue.

I grew up in Sweden, speaking Swedish at home, but going to French school. At age four, I was immersed in a French environment, and had to sink or swim. I swam! In my late teens, my family moved to Israel, so I became fluent in Hebrew as well. I understand a lot about the language acquisition process.

While languages fascinate me, and come easily to me, I understand that that is not the case for everyone. I am very patient, and willing to try different methods in order to succeed. I realize that some people learn best by seeing the materials, while others need to hear them, or even sing them! Others need to move their bodies and engage in
kinesthetic learning. I facilitate all these methods.
I have taught all ages, from preschoolers to the elderly. I have taught in schools, preschools, informal educational settings (like summer camps) as well as one-on-one privately.

I’m very flexible with timing, and available as often as you’d like, Sunday to Friday.

Bettina helped me to succeed at speaking French with my non-English speaking friends in Paris, on a recent trip to Paris. She helped me realize that I could speak the language again. Bettinas’ style, knowledge, and patience are some of her keys to my success in Paris. I appreciate her effort. I will continue in a manner such that I will not lose this progress. Merci beacoup!

Vanda has been one of the best French instructors I have had the pleasure of taking lessons with. Speaking English as my primary language, I found it difficult to understand the structure and syntax of French. Even so, where I most struggled was in pronouncing words. It was very difficult for me to speak clear enough so that nuanced distinctions could be heard in the words and phrases I attempted to pronounce. One she assessed where I struggled the most, Vanda patiently and diligently worked with me as to help me with my problems. I am proud to say that today I can have almost casual conversations with native French speakers and I know that I am understood because of the time Vanda dedicated to me. I would definitely recommend her if you want to learn French, or if you have a little bit of knowledge and are attempting to expand and refine your skills.

Vanda has been an instrumental part of my learning of the French language. From helping me improve my grammar and sentence structure, to correcting my pronunciation until it was nothing less than optimal, she has single-handedly ensured the growth of my knowledge of the tricks and twists learning French comes with.

I can without a doubt recommend her very highly as a teacher, as I whole-heartedly believe my French would not be as good as it currently is, without her.
