I was born in Lecco, near Lake Como, in 1992. Before moving to London I was living in Milan, Italy. This is where I have taken my International Baccalaureate exams, at the International School of Milan.
I then read Philosophy at King’s College London. During my years studying philosophy at King’s I have developed a particular interest in the areas of intersection between philosophy, mathematics and the sciences (such as formal logic, set theory, philosophy of quantum mechanics, philosophy of biology) and in political philosophy.
I have then completed a Graduate Diploma in Mathematics, also at King’s College London. I have been taking modules in different areas of both pure and applied mathematics, including group theory, complex analysis, quantum mechanics, general relativity, mathematical finance, information theory and mathematical biology. I have achieved a first (70% or higher) in each of the final exams I have taken, obtaining a final grade of Pass with Distinction.
I am now a student in the MSc in Quantum Fields and Fundamental Forces programme within the Theoretical Physics Group at Imperial College London, one of the most selective postgraduate programmes in theoretical physics in Europe.
I have more than five years of experience in teaching mathematics, physics, philosophy and languages (Italian and English as foreign languages). I have helped students of different age groups and levels, ranging from KS1 pupils to university students and adult learners and I am working with major London-based tutoring agencies.
I have consistently received positive feedback from my tutees. Removed
Some of my past teaching experiences include:
a. teaching subjects such as calculus, set theory, statistics, mechanics and formal logic to undergraduate university students and foundation year students in the UK (e.g. Oxford, LSE, UCL, Birkbeck);
b. teaching mathematics, physics and philosophy to International Baccalaureate and A Level (OCR, AQA and Edexcel exam boards) students in central London;
c. leading two intensive review courses (Mathematics HL and Mathematics SL for the IB) for upper sixth students at international schools in Milan in April 2017;
d. teaching English as a second language to a class of more than twenty pupils in a primary school in Milan, as part of a volunteering project;
e. helping IB students understand how to set up a coherent argument in TOK (Theory of Knowledge, an IB subject) and how to research and structure a good TOK essay;
f. teaching Italian as a second language to adult learners, including beginners and a more experienced student who wanted to improve his speaking and writing skills.
g. teaching mathematics one-to-one to children, including a Year 6 pupil who obtained excellent results in her SATs and was accepted into a prestigious secondary school (Grey Coat Hospital) as a result.
I have experience of teaching students of different age groups and backgrounds, ranging from primary school children to undergraduate students and adult learners.
I believe that teaching should be tailored on the student’s individual needs and interests, and that this cannot always be achieved by frontal teaching in a large classroom.
I think that a tutor’s role is first of all to stimulate the student’s curiosity in the subject, and to foster self-confidence and enthusiasm. This can be achieved by discussing the topics together in a way that is engaging to the student, by encouraging critical thinking, and by identifying the student’s difficulties, gaps and misconceptions.
Being a university student myself, I feel I can often relate to the learning needs and difficulties students are experiencing.
