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!!
I love to teach because I love to share Italian recipes with my students.
I teach easy recipes for every days, and for a dinner "last minute"!
Passion and a little brain allow you to come out with very simple and delicious recipes.

Our conversations are sprinkled with Italian cooking lessons, culture and geography. His teachings are lessons within lessons that have given me confidence to use my book learning in social settings.
I highly recommend learning Italian with Massimo. And if you are interested in home made, and easy Italian recipes, he has a lot to share. Some of Massimo’s favorite recipes that I have learned how to make and now use regularly are:
Strawberry Tiramisu (Tiramisu alle fragole)
Lasagna (le lasagne alla Bolognese; con besciamella) This is a red sauce and a while sauce and I use a crock pot to prepare the delicious red sauce.
Meatballs in tomatoe sauce (Polpette al sugo)
Italian flat bread with rosemary (Focaccia al Rosmarino)
Homemade fresh- ricotta cheese (ricotta formaggio)
I have also learned where and how to shop for the best ingredients from Massimo. We have had many conversations in Italian, on cooking Italian style.
