About Karen
My mission is to help everyone, from beginner to expert, feel comfortable engaging in Italian conversations and believing that learning a second language is not only necessary but possible!

I provide lessons to people of all ages determined to learn or improve Italian. Each lesson is customized based on the specific needs of each student and the goals they are ready to achieve.

~Parlare é la chiave per imparare~

Cancellation or reschedule policy: If you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson, I will be happy to do so but would require 24 hours notice prior to your scheduled lesson time. After the 24h notice period, the full amount of the lesson will be charged. Emergencies are excluded.

My lesson with Karen exceeded my expectations and they were high because her other reviews were excellent! She is warm, engaging, crystal clear in her explanations and creates a fun and supportive learning environment. I was a bit wary about pursing lessons remotely but now I am a believer!

Señora Bridget is the best Spanish teacher I could ask for! She really helps guide me in the right direction and is very informative and helpful! It’s especially important to me that she took it upon herself to learn Spanish at one point as well. It reminds me that I can do it too!

About Guifang
I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

Interest is the best teacher. When I taught non-nativ
e Chinese speakers (in China, South Korea and the U.S) Chinese, it seemed it stimulated their curiosity and interest to learn Chinese when cultural elements were introduced--such as characters' origin and visualization, historical contexts and cultural traditions. I hope that approach can also bring you an enjoyable experience learning a new language!

To help you be able to use Chinese, our language learning is mainly through interactive and communicative approaches. Talk! Talk! Talk! Please don't be shy. It's okay to make mistakes. Learning from mistakes is also a very effective way to learn a new language. We can make more contextualized dialogues based on whatever textbook you are using now. Or we can produce functional conversation based on everyday topics that you are interested. Lesson plans are customized and they can be flexible.

Ready to get on the boat and sail on the sea of Chinese? :)

Do you want to expand your signing skills from a CODA (Child Of Deaf Adult) and educator? ASL being my first language and English a second language, I’ve signed to my mother, father, brothers and others in the deaf community by nature. I’m currently learning to sign music in ASL which has been a great experience. As a lifelong learner, I hope to inspire and share this experience with you!

About FlorLouise
Hi! My name is FlorLouise Edouard. I have a passion for people, food and literature. I believe food, before anything else, have the power to unite people of all cultures, backgrounds, and interests. I love food. I love to cook. I love meeting new people, sharing my culture with them, and learning all about theirs from them.

I prepared my first meal when I was seven years old with the help of my mother, and my love for cooking has only intensified since then. Throughout college, I worked at restaurants specializing in Italian, Mexican, and traditional American cuisine. These experiences have given me a broader, more extensive knowledge of food, food preparation, wine, wine and food pairing, cooking methods and tricks, as well as food and service etiquette.

With my assistance, my students come to better understand the fundamentals of
cooking such as selecting the right ingredients, spices, herbs, healthy alternatives, etc; they master proper food handling and preparation techniques; they experience traditional Haitian cooking; and they learn about serving and storing food.

As for my language background, I was born and raised in Haiti. My first language is Haitian Creole, and my second French. English and Spanish were later introduced to my curriculum in secondary school. Living in the US for the past twelve years has affected those skills. Although I am still fluent in Haitian Creole, my English has surpassed everything else, Haitian Creole included. My passion for literature however, has helped me in retaining French despite the lack in demand for it in my everyday life. I now teach beginner and intermediate students.
