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.

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.

From the get go I knew I had found the perfect teacher,
Enrico is a motivating teacher.
He challenges you to learn what you need by reading and discussing interesting materials he sends .it isn't just not doing verbs exercises and tenses but actually participating in actual situations as if you were in Italy .
Enrico quickly helps you get over the nervousness that students experience when reading out loud and discussing the meaning of words in sentences and their uses.

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

Taking weekly lessons at the high-intermediate level - Tatiana is a fantastic teacher - very good explanations of grammatical concepts and nuances of vocabulary/language - I've noticed great progress in my Russian since starting a few months ago.

About Erin
My name is Erin Smith,

I am the owner pastry chef and sugar artist behind Sugar Inspired LLC right here in beautiful Boise Idaho. I custom design, bake and create Sculpted 3D character cakes and Wedding cakes, that are truly a bit different then the rest. I have a artistic approach in my work & decorating style. In addition to a professional background in Pastry and cake decorating.

My professional background and experience have lead to positions at our local downtown Bardenay restaurant where I accepted their position as lead Pastry Chef for three years time, creating and designing custom desserts for their locations in Eagle and Boise. I taught pastry assistants and student interns the cake decorating and baking skills needed to master their cake decorating and baking skills. I also produced desserts and Wedding cakes for the
ir B-Side's events. I continued in my path as a Pastry Chef by accepting the Executive Pastry Chef position for the City of Boise's Boise Convention Center. Leading their baking department in catering to large corporate and private events.

I ultimately decided to leave the busy culinary world and focus back on family, where I focus only now on creating custom cakes and teaching cake decorating classes exclusively. This has allowed me to create on a much different scale. These cakes not only look amazing! they taste even better! With all the years of cake decorating, sugar art, assembling incorporated into each Sculpted 3D & Wedding Cake I create.

I'm certain you will learn and master these steps in taking your cake decorating skills up a whole new level in cake decorating and designing. Start creating one-of-a-kind-cake.

Oh my gosh! Erin is AMAZING!! Seriously amazing!!!! I have been decorating cakes for a while took some private lesson through cake instructors through Micheal's and hobby lobby to up my internship skills but wanted to learn more advanced skills then what was offered in Boise, so I searched this site and found Erin with Sugar Inspired in the Boise area YAY!! Anybody who is familiar with the culinary world of cake artists knows who Erin is because of her talents! She is known by so many cake artists around the world so to find her in Boise and schedule a lesson with in her person was truly a dream come true! And she made me feel right at home! Her steps in building custom cakes was so eye opening alone so much the other teachers didn't teach correctly. I am so excited thrilled to learn more and take my skills beyond what I have achieved so far with learning Erin's technics and decorating styles!! As a students of the Boise State I am so grateful to have her here! Thank you Erin!!

About Clay
Hello, my name is Chef Clay, i have been cooking for as long as i can remember, starting out with my grandmother feeding hard working men coming in from the wheat fields. I later went through a 4 year long culinary arts Program on the Oregon coast working with many gifted Chefs during that time. I came to get a taste of cooking from Chefs that had been around the world, and no culture was outside of our lessons. I have worked in kitchens as far North as Malibu Canada and as far south as Las Cruces New Mexico. In that time working as a restaurant and personal chef i came to enjoy imparting what i know to the others in my life. I love what a good meal can do to bring people together, and i hope that with what i have learned in the course of my life so far i can share that magic.

We all live once in this lifetime, I believe that my way of choosing paths has made become a stronger person.
With handling my problems, I've become a great listener, and make solutions work. I dont just teach. I'm a good learner. I love to learn from people. That's how I am the instructor that I am.
Not everyone is a teacher. But when you do get there.
You're a good inspiration for all that's around you.
My question is, "if you weren't given/shown choices in life, then how can you know you are doing right or wrong?"
