Information About Fabio - Fulham tutor
English (Foreign Language)
I am an Italian graduate, having obtained two academic qualifications from the University of London. I hold a BA in History (2:1) and an MA in Philosophy (2:1). I am a passionate anglophile and an avid reader of English literature and philosophy. One of the perks of a career in teaching is to be able to share my passion and my interests with others. I am hoping that continuing to enhance my teaching profile by engaging with private tuition in England will help me achieve just that and in the process make sure that my enthusiasm and knowledgeability has rubbed off on you.
I have been tutoring students of all ages and backgrounds in English in Italy for about three years.
With a proven track record of private tuition in Italian, I offer an easy way to learn Italian using a flexible approach to my lessons. While most language courses nowadays inevitably tend to focus on conversation skills acceding to the general demand for a quick and painless introduction to a foreign language, this is only ever done at the expense of the more grammatical aspects of a language. This may well be a perfectly satisfactory strategy for fast results in the short-term. Nonetheless, my experience tells me that this approach cannot stand the test of time. As soon as the student stops practicing, they will forget most of what they learnt. For this reason, my aim is to avoid this happening by taking time out to focus on the actual grammatical function of words, sentences
and verbs. To speak in a language other than our own is not to translate "verbatim" what we are trying to say. It is rather to "think" in a different language. My goal is to take you there.
