Loughborough Tutor

I am a PhD student from Italy. After studying Medical Biotechnology I moved to Ireland for an internship. Straight after that I came to England for my PhD. I love science, particularly biology and astronomy. In my spare time I work as a barista in a local cafeteria, but the things I enjoy the most are photography and cooking. It's always a good time to bake a cake :)

Tutoring Experience

I have done private tutoring (biochemistry) at University level, and English, Maths and Chemistry for both kids (age 8-13) and high school students. During my PhD I was also part of the teaching team of a module which included students from different backgrounds. I helped during practical sessions, answering questions that the students may have, making sure that everything was clear to them and they were able to work independently and safely.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that every student is different and requires different tutoring approaches. I find essential to sit down and have a chat about the difficulties that he/she is facing. It is essential that the student feels comfortable with me, not intimidated or afraid of asking questions. Sometimes the issue is that the subject has to be explained with slightly different words, other times what is needed is repetition. It is also useful to explain the topic by finding analogies which make it easier to understand and remember the concepts. It is important for the student to receive support outside the tutoring hours. Therefore, I will be available 7 days per week and willing to answer any doubt or question, whenever possible.
