About Enrico C.

Los Angeles, CA
View Full Profile

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.

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

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

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.

Hello all! I just can't say enough great things about Roula. She works around technical difficulties like a pro. She always has a plan for the lesson, and adapts to the student according to their progress. My favorite thing about my lessons with her is her genuine interest in helping me become more capable in my language. I knew from my first lesson that she was a special kind of teacher. Won't be leaving her until I'm good and fluent.

About Evelyne K.

Henrico, VA

View Full Profile

As I was born and raised in Geneva, the French-speaking part of Switzerland, French is my mother tongue. With a Swiss degree of pediatric nursing and teaching, I worked more than 15 years with children, families and adult students. Finding the best way to learn depending on who you are and what goals you have is one of my specialties. I like to provide a dynamic and a fun learning environment.
Having learnt as multiple second languages, such as English, Italian, Spanish and German, I’m very aware of the process of learning a new language.
I can provide vocabulary, grammar, verbs, conversation as well as cultural aspects from different French speaking countries, as I was working with people from France and I spent 3 years in Montreal, Quebec.
I moved to Richmond a year ago, bringing many French books and movies for all ages, which we could use during lessons.

About Evelyne
I’m 44 years old. I moved from Geneva, Switzerland, a year ago for my husband’s work. He’s a pediatric clinical and research physician at VCU (MCV). I’m the mother of two teenagers at the Steward's School. We are a native French speaking family.
I have worked since 1999 as a pediatric nurse and a nursing instructor for critical care children and neonates.
I have Swiss degrees in nursing, paediatric, critical care, lactation consultant and pedagogy/teaching.
I would love to tutor/teach to share my knowledge of French language and culture, using my pedagogical background and a good sense of
humour.

About Kokou
I was a French teacher since 2008 in Togo, west Africa. I graduated from from University of Lome in 2007 with a sociology bachelors degree.
My country Togo is a French speaking place and I started my primary’s school academy, I realized that French is a very easy to learn if you pay attention to your teacher . But very difficult when it comes to vocabulary, grammar and verbs .
So , in 2004 , I started organizing vacation classes in my village to help fresh students to have an idea about how to learn and speak French . After 2 years of vaacation classes, students parents started thank m
e for the improvement I did for their kids . And since then , I started getting motivation of teaching French as a part time job.
I love teaching!!!

I have self studied in French to a high level and know it very well from a technical level. I wish to master my French because I will be going to Switzerland to study abroad. It is a very beautiful language and I enjoy teaching it to those who want to learn.

About Edward
I'm going to be a 3rd year student at Pepperdine University pursuing an Engineering degree. I'm a huge language learner, being able to converse in about 8 languages but I only wish to teach 3 of them for now. As someone who prefers self studying to learning from classrooms, I've perfected the method for students to improve drastically from their previous lesson by self preparing. I prefer to teach online especially for further students but those that are close I wouldn't mind commuting. My hours are pretty flexible during the weekdays.
