Born and raised here in New York City, Adam developed a fascination for languages and cultures early on, which propelled him to become fluent in Hebrew and Italian. With a belief that language can give a person a new appreciation of culture and community, Adam likes to focus on the elements of language that are most useful to his students' lives.
Adam is an incredible instructor with years of Hebrew teaching experience. His enthusiasm and friendliness make the class enjoyable and I can already see improvements in my Hebrew.

Born and bred in the Bronx to an Italian family predominantly hailing from the Sorrento Coast, Italian is Robert's second language, and French his adopted language. He has taught French for 15 2years and Italian for a whopping 32. He is also a classically-trained pianist (but also has fun with Ragtime!) and performed at the Carnegie Recital Hall. As if all that weren't enough, Robert was also on the NYU Ballroom Dance Team. He loves to explore New York City, and the world.
He is charismatic and has a great knowledge of different parts of the world, which is helpful for future travels. Very patient and bright personality
