Hello, I’m Marco, a History and Politics student at the University of Edinburgh. I have always performed excellently when it came to academics, from Primary School to University, graduating with a score of 42/45 in IB and obtaining high averages in all my courses at Edinburgh. I aim to share the study tricks and learning mechanisms that helped me do well in school with all the students I tutor, while also transmitting to them the passion and attention to detail that has always characterised my relationship with the subjects I teach.

I have a very broad knowledge of the topics and languages I tutor and always like to extend my lessons beyond simply what’s in the textbooks. This way, students can engage better with their syllabus and apply their knowledge more directly. My rich cultural background stemming from my dual nationality and my diverse childhood, as well as my innate thirst for knowledge allow me to offer my students an enriched learning experience.

About my sessions

Lessons with me are highly interactive and never monotonous. I prefer not to focus the tutoring on delivering the syllabus as I find that any teacher at school together with any good textbook can do that just as effectively.

In addition, I strongly believe that many students' difficulties in school stem from errors the...

Lessons with me are highly interactive and never monotonous. I prefer not to focus the tutoring on delivering the syllabus as I find that any teacher at school together with any good textbook can do that just as effectively. Contrarily, I tend to spend more time discussing the parts of the materials where the student is not feeling comfortable, answering questions and practicing exam questions. In addition, I strongly believe that many students' difficulties in school stem from errors they make in how they study and approach the syllabus. During lessons I like to help students learn how to revise on their own and what details they need to pay attention to when studying at home or at school.
