I have always loved tutoring and teaching, particularly the subjects that I love the most: English, Italian and Philosophy. In particular, English literature is my passion and it was to study more deeply this huge variety of themes and styles that I came to England, in September 2016, to read English literature at University, where I graduated with a 1:1 and obtained a prize for outstanding dissertation. Currently, I am reading the MA in English Studies at Durham, deepening my knowledge of the subject that I adore.

I am interested in a wide number of subjects, that I’ve studied assiduously. This came handy when I was asked to tutor in philosophy, art history and Italian. My pupils have always been satisfied and I can proudly affirm that they have improved with my lessons. The experience has been fundamental for me, and it gave me the opportunity to meet amazing people. They helped me to refuse schemes, trying to find a different teaching method for each of them, adapting to their needs and necessities.Between 2017-2019 I have taught the English IGCSE to two home-schooled children, and I am happy to affirm that they aced their exams!

I am an energetic, active and self-confident person, able to establish great work relationships as well as friendships. I am confident I will fulfill the expectations and that I am ideal for the position.

About my sessions

During my lessons I always engage with the student. Instead of teaching them what to think, I establish a discussion that allows the pupil both to learn how to reason. I believe that in the humanistic subjects the individual perception of the text is fundamental, and that personal opinions are always to be valued. This means that the student will be granted a safe space in which his opinions are esteemed and pushed further to obtain a critically-informed understanding of texts and art pieces....

I believe that in the humanistic subjects the individual perception of the text is fundamental, and that personal opinions are always to be valued. This means that the student will be granted a safe space in which his opinions are esteemed and pushed further to obtain a critically-informed understanding of texts and art pieces.

I tend to work much on the texts, as I believe that they retain the essence of the doctrine. This will allow my pupils to grow increasingly independent, as they will learn how to approach a art piece critically, managing to uncover its deeper meaning. I am confident that by the end of our lessons, my pupils will have gained what is necessary to proceed independently in the following scholastic years.

My approach to the subjects, which prompts the student to talk, is in itself a measure of the increased confidence of the individual, as I will naturally understand, leading the conversation through specific questions, the bettered knowledge of the student.

Being an Italian native, I am naturally lead to teach my language. My lessons are mainly conversational, as I often provide my students with a set of grammar rules at the beginning of the session, and then allow the person to gain confidence in those rules through friendly talking.
