Personal Description:

Multilinguаl University of Cаmbridge grаduаte, with а First-clаss degree in French and Italian.

I attended Hampton School in Middlesex (2006-2012) with A-Levels of French (A*), English (A*), History (A*) and Spanish (A). I was fortunate to be able to study Italian at university, learning the language intensively in my first two years before travelling to Milan for my Year Abroad to study History of Art, Cinema and Theatre before working in an Italian law firm.

I am based in South West London and would love to share my passion for languages with all abilities. If you would like to enquire about tutoring for this academic year, don`t hesitate to get in touch!

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience tutoring French and Spanish to GCSE level (AQA) (2013)
In my Year Abroad I taught Italian to small children as well as tutoring adults in professional English, specifically for the IUSS exam at the University of Pavia. (2015-16)
I helped Italian students at Bocconi University in Milan with their written English.
I have helped prospective students to the University of Cambridge with their applications, specifically with the SAQ and the interview process.
At University I helped younger students with their French and Italian oral preparations as well as with their Year Abroad dissertations.

Tutoring Approach:

For beginners and younger students I believe in an approach that makes language learning fun and engaging. Learning grammar by rote and infinite lists of vocabulary often puts off a student in their early stages of learning a language. As well as connecting with the language through their own interests, the student can be challenged to do better each time, whether its through games or time challenges that creates a determination to progress each session.

For GCSE and A-Level student, a much more tailored approach is required, identifying weaknesses in ability and finding ways to get them up to scratch and then pushing for the top grade boundaries while developing an enjoyment of the language learning process.

The same applies for university students, however, what makes a student stand out at university is their constant endeavour to improve, learn more about the language and its culture and move from being bilingual and onto bicultural.
