“I enjoyed learning how to crochet and knit in separate private sessions with Maria Conte. Maria is gifted with her so many talents and expertise as well as being extremely patient. No matter if you are a beginner, Maria guides you through the entire process to learn the techniques and complete beautiful and decorative projects for your home. I was surprised in how fast I could learn. I also found these lost arts to be very entertaining and therapeutic.”

“My son and I took Greek cooking classes with Maria Conte. My husband is Greek, therefore my son gave me some gift certificates to be applied to cooking instruction with Maria as he had already taken a few classes with her in company of his girlfriend. I am not a great cook myself, but learning how to make stuffed vine leaves, spanakopita, tzatziki and baklava was an absolute extraordinary experience that increased my self-confidence in the kitchen. Thank you Maria for your gracious assistance!”

“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.”

“I’ve taken an assortment of Spanish classes with Maria. I went from having no knowledge to being fluent in less than a year. She is kind, very patient, and dedicated to her students while also being reasonable with tuition. If you’re afraid of learning a new language, with Maria you will succeed without concern!”

“I have been taking Italian classes with Maria for more than a year now. She not only understands how to teach language to adult students but also has the patience to bring students along for an enjoyable learning experience. She has well designed reading materials with exercises that focus on learning grammatical skills which are then reinforced in a relaxed atmosphere in her classes. Maria clearly enjoys teaching students at all skill levels and her enthusiasm encourages her students to not only learn the Italian language but also better appreciate Italian culture. I highly recommend her.”
