Online English and Italian Lessons

Hi there! I recently finished a PhD in regenerative medicine and took some time off to travel through Central America. Travelling is the most inspiring thing I've ever done and I learn something every day (besides Spanish and how to roll a tortilla to perfection). I'm a big photography passionate and I'm addicted to films and music.

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 a university teacher, helping out with different modules and students. I taught 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. In addition, I also gave some lectures. Thanks to FirstTutors I found several students who wanted to learn Italian and I loved every minute of this experience. I also completed a TEFL course and I would like to teach online.

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. I will be available 7 days per week and willing to answer any doubt or question, whenever possible (mainly due to WiFi limitations).
