“My husband and I took a variety of Italian cooking classes with Maria Conte. At the time, we had no cooking experience, and were so frightened to even crack an egg. Maria has been very patient and encouraging, removed our fears and truly changed our lives as my husband and I enjoy preparing delicious meals for family and friends in our new kitchen. It was wonderful and fun learning how to make handmade pasta, a variety of pasta sauces, risotto dishes, stuffed vegetables, bean soups, cannoli, tiramisù e biscotti to name a few. Nevertheless, Maria can help you design a fabulous menu from antipasto to dessert for some special get together. We highly recommend Maria Conte.”

“Maria is a thorough, enthusiastic teacher who excels at fostering an atmosphere of classroom camaraderie. I felt challenged and supported; the time flew! Loved it so much I took Italian 1 and 2, and have already registered for the Conversation class. ”

“My wife and I took two conversation classes with Maria Conte. Both were very helpful for improving our pronunciation, listening and speaking skills. The classes were well organized. Professoressa Maria listened carefully, spoke slowly, and gave us personalized suggestions and help. We also enjoyed ourselves which helped us relax and speak more freely. I recommend the conversation classes as a supplement for students who are studying Italian in more academic settings, or as a review for those who know some Italian and want to informally review and practice speaking. I also took a private tutorial, “Spanish for Travelers” from Professoressa Maria. It was intense, and very helpful. Maria Conte is an excellent teacher with loads of experience and a warm, personal approach.”
