Private Italian and History Tutor in York

Hello! I am Gianluca and I am Italian. I am a Doctor of Philosophy in Film and Television Production Techniques at the University of York. I am also a filmmaker who made four short films which have been screened in various International Film Festivals around the world. In 2016 I have been chosen as a Member of the Selection Committee for the Globe International Silent Film Festival held in the Michigan State University.

Tutoring Experience

Before moving to York I studied Architectural Engineering at the Università degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata (BA+MA combined) and I worked as a private tutor teaching Math, Physics, English and History. I lived in Paris for 5 months for an Erasmus programme at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture Paris – La Villette. I also worked as a technology assistant and an administrative secretary for a concrete Association, in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Employment. I taught Italian to Chinese students at the University of York. Currently I work as a home tutor.

Tutoring Approach

My priority is helping students in gaining the knowledge and the confidence they need in order to succeed, finding their individual style of learning and developing an interest towards the topic. As a tutor I am enthusiastic and passionate. I can breakdown complicated concepts into simple ones and I am particularly good with students who suffer of anxiety around exams. I work with each student as an individual to build their knowledge and help them to get a deeper understanding of the topic. Once they have all the knowledge they need, I work together with them in finding the best way to pass the exam.
