Hi! I'm a Private Tutor offering tuition in English, Italian and Drama. I graduated with a First Class degree in English from Queen Mary, University of London, and have A-Levels in English Literature, Italian and Theatre Studies.
Alongside my private tutoring I have worked as a Teaching Partner at a Primary School, as Media Content Manager for a poetry charity and as a Researcher in factual television. I am passionate about the arts and media, and enjoy writing and performing music with my bands. I am fluent in Italian, and travel to Italy on a regular basis.
I can offer tuition in English Literature and Language, Essay Writing, Italian, and Drama / Theatre studies, as well as offering guidance on university applications and study skills.
I recently worked as a Teaching Partner at a Primary School for two years, where I planned, delivered and adapted class resources, and supported individuals and groups in their learning. I also created a number of after school enrichment activities, including Music, Singing and Italian Club.
I have also worked with young people as a Private Tutor, and as an Academic Mentor in group outreach projects preparing students for secondary education. I am conscious of adapting my teaching methods to suit individual needs, and am familiar with the structure of GCSE and A-Level assessments.
As an Italian tutor, I have delivered classes to students of various age groups, levels, and group sizes, developing original materials to make the language relevant and engaging. I have also supported young people and adults with English as a Second Language.
My approach to tutoring is centred around each student's learning style and motivations. I listen carefully to my students, assess their needs, and identify areas that require particular attention. Together with the student I plan short term and long term goals that build towards improving results, whilst encouraging the student to grow in confidence and enthusiasm for the subject.
My English lessons focus on enabling the student to recognise and express their own ideas and opinions in a well structured argument, and to foster their close reading skills. In helping students with exam preparation, I make sure that they understand exactly what the examiner is looking for, working methodically through exam technique, past-papers, and key literary devices and themes.
As an Italian teacher, I adapt my lessons to the student's interests and aims, and encourage conversation from the very beginning. Whilst working towards a solid understanding of Italian grammar and vocabulary, I also make sure that my students are engaged with the language in a practical and relevant way, using a variety of original exercises and contemporary resources.
