About Massimo
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!!

We had a great time learning from Massimo. You can't learn the proper consistence of pasta dough from a book or video. We will be using all the techniques we learned. The marinara sauce he taught us to make was simple, but delicious. We will definitely call on Massimo again.

If you want to learn Korean, choose Angie as your tutor. She makes the lessons very fun to attend and I always look forward to the next lesson. She makes quizzes, has you watch videos and explains what is going on, introduces food, etc. She makes learning Korean very easy and fun. These types of tutors are very rare to find, for me at least. Trust me, pick Angie as your tutor. You won't regret it.

About Won
I lived in Korea for over 15 years and came to the States. I am a native Korean speaker and aware of active Korean cultures. I am a full time Graphic Designer. Being a firm believer that cultural competency is deeply related to its language and without understanding the culture, the language can not be learned perfectly. So I talk a lot about Korean cultures and life styles of its own while teaching the language. I also think that learning should be fun.

Anyone who wants to learn Korean both for fun and serious matter will be more than welcomed. I am bilingual speaking both English and Korean. Please contact me if you plan to visit Korea individually or in a group and would like to learn Korean beforehand or simply for any reasons. I will make your learning fun and easy.

I look forward to hearing from you!

About claire
Greeting!

I've been tutoring in multiple subjects and paino/violin since I was a freshman in high school. I love it when students make progress and it is my passion to help them reach their goals. This builds self-confidence and leadership, which are necessary skills in this economy. I have a B.S. in Accounting from George Mason University with over 10 years of Accounting work experience.

Currently, I am preparing to sit for the teaching license with a concentration in 7-12 Mathematics. I have over two years of teaching experience at a private boarding school where I taught (including curriculum and lesson planning) Algebra, Pre-Calculus, TOEFL, ESOL (writing), Geography, and US history.

I would love to be a part of reaching your goals.

About jeison
I was born in Medellín, Colombia and began teaching myself English as a kid, learning from American TV, movies, and music. Soon I was helping my friends and classmates learn English too, and teaching languages has been my passion ever since. I have a master's degree in Spanish Pedagogy and over nine years of teaching experience, and I am currently working on a doctorate in Education focused on teaching Spanish.

I have taught a wide range of students, from children with special needs to business executives and diplomats. I adapt my lessons to the needs and interests of each individual, but my methods always focus on practical language skills that my students will really use. My classes revolve around conversation, not textbooks, and go beyond standard grammar and vocabulary to include the cultural elements that influence how people truly
use the language.

I believe that anyone can become fluent in a foreign language, regardless of whether they are able to study abroad or not. If you are serious about learning, I can design a program of study that will take you as far as you want to go with Spanish. Even if you have had difficulty with foreign languages in the past, I can help you overcome those roadblocks and achieve remarkable results.

About Javier
I am a choir director for my local church and have been since I was 19. I started playing piano when I was 6, but I never really got into it until several years later. My parents pushed me to play piano my whole life. It took a lot of practice and encouragement, but little by little, and with the help of some amazing teachers, I have become a very talented piano player.

I graduated from The Catholic University of America with a Bachelors in Architecture, and a Minor in Theology (what does that have to do with music right?). I constantly motivate myself to teach piano and learn as much as I can which places me in strong position of talent, while my degree is not in Music, I challenge anyone to perform with as much passion as I have for music.

A few years ago, my choir was awarded a silver medal in a competition among choirs in the area.
My talent and natural leadership skills were lauded by the audience and the judges. Since then, I have only improved in my skills and wish to give those skills to others.

As a well-experienced student and instructor, I have acquired several (nearly 50) piano books that I use to constantly refresh my skill set. I am happy to use and donate any book for prospective students, so that they may follow my footsteps into true piano playing.

Everyday, I listen to a different song and work hard to learn it on the piano and develop chords, melodies, or just various forms of accompaniment .

I also enjoy singing as much as possible, to keep my voice as well-maintained as my piano. When I sing and play together, it is an entirely different atmosphere that I create and know any student is capable achieving that as well.

I am happy that my family kept pushing me to play because I learned to maintain a positive attitude. Now I play with so much passion and fun, which very few teachers can do.
