|Hourly Rate||Online Lessons|
I am a PhD students at University College of London. I am investigating the interaction between language and memory mechanism in the brain. My interest in language began during high-school where I learned to translate from ancient langugaes, such as Latin and Ancient Greek, to Italian. As I acquired the ability to master the complex relationship between different linguistic systems, I developed the interest to transmit this enriching knowledge to others. This is why I started giving tutoring lessons to high-scool and BA students that were facing difficulties in their educational path.
I have a long professional experience as a tutor at a high-school and University level. My degrees in Classics and Linguistics give me the necessary in-depth knowledge of Humanities subjects (Ancient Greek, Latin, and History) to be able to teach. During the past 6 years, I have taught both as a private tutor and as an official tutor of selected schools in my hometown, Milan (Italy), and in the city where I lived for 2 years, Rovereto (Italy). I am currently working as a Teaching Assistant at University College London (UCL).
I have been tutoring high-school students since my BA in Classics, and I have always succeeded in helping them to overcome their difficulties and become more aware of their potential as well as of their Achille's heel. I strongly believe that tutoring should provide each student the possibility to learn a solid and efficient study method, that would be tailored on each student's characteristics but that could be applied to any subject.

I'm learning Italian as an adult. I have some basic grasp of the language, but without any formal education. Caterina quickly identified my strengths, and encouraged me with them. She also discovered my weak points and has supported me improving them.
Learning a language properly as an adult can be quite daunting, but she is making it not only possible but really enjoyable.
She is the right balance of sympathetic to anxieties around learning, with a serious enough tone to make lessons structured and informative. She being a real holistic approach to learning a new language. Really fantastic!
