Degree: International Relations (with study abroad) (Bachelors) - Sheffield University
· I am an Italian girl who has been living in England for fifteen years. In addition to being a native speaker, I am formally qualified; I took GCSE Italian aged 13 and A-level at 17, achieving A*s in both and have previously studied ‘Higher Advanced’ Italian as part of my International Relations and Politics degree.
· I have also spoken French since I was a child, leading me to excel at both GCSE and A-Level in the language and I am currently studying ‘Advanced’ French as part of my degree.
· I am able to empathise with students at the level that I will be teaching, as I am very familiar with the exam process, which is fresh in my memory. Tutoring is also a familiar field for me; I have helped tutor several children who had recently arrived in the UK from Italy with their English language skills, an experience which required patience and sensitivity and left me confident in my ability to help others with my knowledge at a higher level.
· My sessions are tailored to suit your individual needs. I am able to offer exam-specific tutoring regarding writing, reading and listening exams, in addition to conversation classes to practice for oral exams.
· I encourage students to break down and familiarise themselves with the syllabus before the sessions (or during if preferred) in order to be able to thoroughly cover each area and maximise their potential in the exam. This process is also crucial in identifying areas in which you are less confident, which will enable us to keep the sessions relevant and make the most of the 55 minutes!
· If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message or book a 15-minute free meeting.
I am looking forward to meeting and working with you!

In Italian, the past tense (passato prossimo) is used to indicate events or actions that have happened in the recent past and have been completed.
Example: Ieri sono andata in palestra (yesterday I went to the gym)
The second form of past tense in Italian is the imperfect (impefetto), which is used to indicate continuity in the past. It is used in three different occasions:
1. An ongoing action in the past that is interrupted by another event
Example: Mentre scrivevo la mia tesi, mia mamma mi ha chiamata (while I was writing my thesis, my mum called me)
2. A repeated/continuous action in the past
Example: Quando ero alle superiori, giocavo spesso a palla canestro (when I was at secondary school, I played basketball often)
3. Two or more events that happened simultaneously in the past
Example: Mentre facevo I compiti, mio fratello svuotava la lavastoviglie (while I was doing my homework, my brother was emptying the dishwasher)see more
