About Enrico C.

Los Angeles, CA
View Full Profile

I am a native Italian speaker who has been teaching and tutoring for several years.

I love to teach and to guide my students on a journey that is not only about grammar, language, but also a cultural and idiomatic one.

Join me in this learning adventure of my language and country.

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.

Nina is very nice. As an adult, it is sometimes difficult to learn a new language because you are embarrassed to make mistakes. Nina makes you feel comfortable.
The lessons are organised and are going in a rhythm that you can follow.

Oxnard, CA

View Full Profile

Dear guys,

I have been teaching Italian language at all levels to adults and children for over 10 years, creating my own classes uniquely tailored to each student's goals and dreams. I graduated from UCLA with a specialty in Italian language, culture and literature. I created and taught the first Italian classes in Oxnard elementary schools and created and taught Italian language and culture class in the Ventura College Community Education, the biggest one to date.

As a longtime translator, I have published significant contemporary Italian literature.

I’m thrilled and dedicated to diving into our language classes, with goals and dreams unique to each of you. I’d love to share with you the incredible, simple, awesome tools to enliven your learning journey!

About Jane (Zhenya)
I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and have always had an immense love for languages and cultures of the world. I found that diving into a new language and culture is one of the most incredible, joyful, compassionate and meaningful paths to discovering the world. All the while, rediscovering one’s own unique interests and curiosities. It’s always surprising and rewarding in ways we can’t foresee.

As a longtime, professional independent instructor, I never imagined where my languages and creative work would lead me and the wonderful folks I encountered along the way.

It’s been a journey of incredible variety.

I had the amazing opportunity to create and teach the first Russian, French and Italian classes to children in public elementary schools all around Oxnard. I was invited to teach French and Italian classes i
n the Ventura College Community Education, Russian immersion program for the U.S. Government and English to a team of international entrepreneurs and their families.

This work and my students inspired a joyful dedication to creating live video classes. I discovered that it’s a special, interactive and awesome platform into the world and I love seeing it grow.

I look forward to working with you and supporting you on your language journey.

Till then,

Zhenya

Few years ago, when I was attending LACC and taking grammar classes I thought that my knowledge of Verb Tenses was good enough . I used to write huge essays included a lot of pages. Moreover, I was getting straight As for all the essays that inspired me. Maybe my grammar was really correct, but I’m not sure that I expressed meaning correctly because I didn’t feel and recognize many nuances of Verb Tenses. Since , I started to take your classes I have understood how Verb Tenses are diverse , how flexible meaning they have in order to show our emotions.
Some people say it”s not necessary to use all V.T. Simple Past , Present and Future it”s enough for communication with each other, but I’m not agree with them. Using all V.T. we have made English more rich , natural and beautiful for that reason our life become jucier.
I never had been so fascinated by studying English grammar before I met you 
I have appreciated your teaching full love . You’re always ready to share your skills with the people who want to improve their knowledge. I’m happy that I found you!
THANK YOU MY DEAR Zhenya !!!!!!!! 

Our high school son was studying a semester in Italy and knew no Italian. We hired Valentina after reading the great reviews and were more than pleased. She was flexible and accommodating to a very tight schedule and our son learned a lot from her. She sprinkled in some cultural and historical lessons on Italy but primarily language. Valentina is high energy, organized and a great teacher. High marks for punctuality, personality and teaching! She even offered to help him once in Italy which we may explore if needed. Thanks Valentina! A wonderful experience.

First lesson was good, although we had some technical difficulties using Skype -- probably my fault not Valentina's -- and ended up speaking by phone. Once we get that worked out, I expect to improve my conversational Italian, with special emphasis on conjugating verbs. So wonderful to speak with someone whose first language is Italian.

Hello there! My name is Yulia and I’m from Italy.
The best way to LEARN a new language is having a CONVERSATION with somebody that knows Italian perfectly. The practice is the key.
We would learn every time new words and we would go through the grammar and then we would have a long conversation in Italian using everything we learned the minutes before. My first language is Italian, but with these methods, I learned English, Moldavian and French. 👍🏻
You can do it 💪🏻

About Yulia Karuntu
Hello there, how are you? I’m 22 and I’m from Milan, Italy I live in the Usa. I moved here because I really wanted to learn English. My biggest passion is traveling because I think it’s the best way to know the culture of the countries and to learn new languages.
The Italian language is really beautiful, and I think it’s also pretty easy to learn it if you really want to 😃

- We will discuss grammar and exercise listening skills but also practice conversations and writing.
- We will also practice with real world conversations and topics rather than only paper exercises.

About Pedro
I am an Opera Singer, currently based in the NYC area. I finished my undergrad in vocal performance at Universidad Central in Bogotá, Colombia and Master’s degree in music performance at the University of Denver.

The learning process is very different from one person to the other and this applies to languages, indeed. However, no matter what your pace is and what your goals are in a subject, my goal will always be making sure that you are learning something new every time, and of course, that you reach your goals in the process. Your process is personal and my job is to take the best from you.

Respect singing, I believe every person has a unique instrument, and no matter how easier or harder it could be for some people, anyone can develop his/her own instrument to the fullest!

I look forward to meet you and reach your singing and langu
age goals together!
