I'm a Data Scientist and research fellow in the field of Theoretical Physics at Trinity College, with the passion for teaching and tutoring. Teaching is what I like most, and I have a long experience in lecturing and in private tutoring both at the high school and university levels. I am always patient and empathetic with my tutees, being convinced that a good personal relationship is the key point for a success.
I have teaching experience both at high-school level and university level. I've been supervising bachelor students for they BS/MS thesis. I have a 10 years experience in teaching privately to students at junior and senior cycle level, which let me develop expertise on the field.
I have a proven track record of success with tutoring:
> students preparing for the Junior Cert and Leaving Cert
> university students struggling with maths and physics, from different background (engineering, physics, business, computer science, etc)
> people studying from the GAMSAT exam (Graduated Medical School Admission Test)
> mature students aiming to start over with a bachelor or master
> casual students who wish to learn a bit of Italian ;-)
I have also a good experience of Skype teaching!
Approach to Grinds:
If you struggle with maths, it doesn't necessarily mean you are bad at it: most of the times it's simply because you had a bad teacher!
My approach is to build a relationship based on trust with the student. According to my experience, I have learned that usually teachers struggle to impose their own method to students, and this very often leads to a failure. On the contrary, I am convinced that each student has a different learning path, which I try to follow leveraging his/her strengths. My aim is to make students understand *deeply* the heart of the matter, and not only being able to mechanically solve exercises.

At first we were apprehensive about online tutoring but after the first session my son said it worked out great. He found Carlo explained things really well and the use of the digital notepad actually added to the lesson because he was able to see all the questions and slides they were working through. Also after the lesson Carlo sent notes via email to help with revision.
Carlo was very accommodating with his schedule and prompt in his reply back to us everytime.
We would highly recommend him for online tutoring.
He is very knowledgeable about the topic and is able to provide explanations and examples from the web to help broaden my understanding.
But now, I’m quite OK with Maths because Carlo helps me . He explains nice and easy way so I can understand.
It’s been very helpful for me.
Definitely I would like to continue his class.
If I hadn’t met Carlo, my Maths would have been a disaster.
Thanks to you, Carlo.
Initially we conducted a few lessons online through voice call where he did sample problems and theory using a digital notepad and a shared screen, which allowed for a lot of flexibility time-wise. We later met up for one-on-one tutoring sessions which were fantastic. Carlo was very well informed on the topics of probability, statistics, and vectors. Initially he taught me the theory behind each question, and showed me how a particular question would be solved, however later he encouraged me to solve questions on my own, with help along the way.
Overall, Carlo was a highly flexible, friendly, and dedicated tutor, and was an absolute pleasure to work with!
Carlo offers skype tutoring sessions in which problems are explored on a digital notepad via screen-share. I've found this format to be very useful - after working through problems, he can pull up, for example, illustrations of graphs on gnuplot which are often conceptually clarifying. This allows notes to be sent after sessions via e-mail and saves you a lot of tedious paper tracking and travelling. I was skeptical before trying it, generally being someone who studies best pen-and-paper out of a book or hard copy of notes, but it really is a very versatile way of tutoring and can be done from your own home and I'd highly recommend it to prospective students of his!
I found Carlo to be very knowledgeable in all respects for maths. He doesn't lecture - he encourages your own responses to questions and helps you work on weak areas. I've found him to be quite skilled at linking solution approaches to the core concepts of the course you're doing and referring back to those concepts often such that they spring to mind when I'm trying questions on my own.
Finally, Carlo is very accommodating in terms of scheduling.
Carlo's experience has been important in getting to know Thomas quickly and adapting a study plan suited to him.
He appreciates feedback and constantly seeks to improve the quality of his tutoring. I couldn't be happier!
Leaving Cert this year. He was excellent at explaining grammar, widening her vocabulary, and writing essays. He was extremely pleasant, helpful and patient. I would highly recommend Carlo for Leaving Cert grinds
Returning to university after 10 years to complete my MSc in Fire Engineering and realised I needed to brush up on my 3rd level physics/Maths/Chemistry.
Carlo provided the work schedule, the study materials, and our weekly meeting sessions (to review my progress, answer questions & outline the upcoming study area).
He is very approachable and an excellent tutor.
I would highly recommend Carlo for anyone looking for a Physics or Maths tutor.
