Christopher is very knowledgeable and passionate about the language he teaches. He is patient, flexible and kind with his feedback. I have truly enjoyed my time learning Spanish and can not wait to continue with lessons. I would highly recommend Christopher!
Ethan
Christopher is an extremely friendly teacher who works hard to find you a goal to work towards for your instrument. He helps you if you mainly want to self study, or he helps choose songs and methods to learn if you want to study with him mostly.

I’d definitely recommend him for beginners!

Online Italian Teacher

I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.
