Hi there! I'm Claudia, 37 years old from Italy. I hold a PhD in Anthropology and I am an award-winning documentary film-maker. I have a BA and MA in Film Studies from the University of Pisa and Rome (summa cum laude), and a MA in Anthropology from the University of Rome (summa cum laude).
I've been living in London for 9 years now. In the past 20 years, I lived in different countries and travelled around the world. I researched in indigenous villages in India and Mexico within the frame of my anthropological studies and directed ethnographic documentaries mostly in Latin America and Europe.
I'm a very enthusiastic and communicative person and I truly enjoy tutoring students in the areas of Italian language and Social Sciences.
I taught Anthropology to Undergraduate students at Goldsmiths, University of London. In the past, I have taught Italian and English in Mexico and France. I hold a Postgraduate Certificate of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
I provide teaching and assistance in the areas of social sciences (particularly anthropology) and the Italian language.
My expertise lies in the anthropology of gender, feminist theories, anthropology of art, Latin American studies, performance studies, qualitative research methods, development studies, visual anthropology and ethnographic film-making. I am an organised and punctual tutor and work carefully with the students within time constraints and tight deadlines.
Social science coursework:
For Undergraduate and Postgraduate students who are looking for help with written coursework, I provide clear recommendations on how to structure the essay, engage with the relevant literature and build a convincing argument. I always read the essay thoroughly and provide written feedback where I discuss the strengths and limitations of the essay and make clear recommendations for content, structure, and style improvement. I use on-text comments to make specific suggestions.
I welcome university students and adult learners with a basic, intermediate or advanced level of Italian for one-to-one or group sessions. I have a dynamic and interactive teaching style, drawing from film, art, music and all the subjects you might be interested in. Your class will be always tailored according to your needs.
