About me

Hello everyone!

My name is Giusy Adriana and I am a bilingual Italian / English Philosophy and Politics graduate. I am an enthusiatic and compassionate tutor. I really love the subjects I am teaching! I am here to teach Italian (my native language), Philosophy, Politics and French, as I have studied the language for many years. I have tutored children, teens and adults in the past.

I have just spent a year abroad studying at Sciences Po, Paris - a Social Social Sciences university in Paris. 

My qualifications

I have a high 2.1 degree in Philosophy and Politics from the University of Exeter and I got a 1.1 for my dissertation on the Sicilian Mafia and religion. I spent a year studying in Paris
 

I grew up  bilingual in Italy and graduated from a Modern Languages academy. I graduated with a score of 95/100, but I really struggled with Maths and Chemistry (which were compulsory), so I really understand that school can be hard or just downright frustrating. I have language certificates in English and French (DELF) and German (ZDJ).

I am looking forward to meeting you !

About my sessions

My method

I believe that succesful tutoring is not a one size fits all. My aim is to taylor my teaching to the person on the other side of the line. One way I do this, is by asking you what your interests are, so I can come up with reading exercises on topics that you find engaging. I like to set indicative short-term and long-term goals for learning. 

Here are some indicative steps I take went tutoring a new student!

1) ASSESS - the issue(s) the student is having with the subject. Are they any topics they have left behind? How good is the material they have?
2) LISTEN - the student's feedback is crucial!
3) INCLUDE feedback from teachers and parents.
4) Plan lessons and objectives, share with student for amendments
5) Time to get cracking!

Questions Giusy has answered

Essere o Avere? Which auxiliary verb must I use?

Ah! the famous auxiliary verbs. Here is a handy guide -

You use "avere" with ACTIVE TRANSITIVE verbs. Here is an example

Io HO mangiato - I have eaten.

The verb "eaten" describes an action carried out by the ACTOR (IO) - that is why we call it an ACTIVE VERB.

Why do we call it an TRANSITIVE VERB? Because the action it deserves "TRANSITA" (transits) from the ACTOR the the OBJECT (I - actor - have eaten ---> the apple, object).

Another example? 

Io - ho - amato ( I have loved). Can you tell me how this verb is active and why it is transitive?

ESSERE

We use "essere" when the verb is PASSIVE 

IMPERSONAL . i.e.: "sembrare" - "to look like"

"Mi e' sembrato strano" - It looked strange to me

REFLEXIVE VERBS - i.e: lavarSI

mi sono lavato/a ( I washed MYSELF)

INTRANSITIVE verbs

there is no hard and fast rules in this case :(

BUT generally speaking "AVERE" will work, especially if you can tell the ACTOR clearly carried out the action 

"Io HO dormito" - I slept, is a good example

ESSERE will go down a treat with verbs indicating movement
"Io ho corso" - I ran

These are the basic! I hope it helps!
