I started teaching in 1998 while I was still living in Italy. I taught Literature, Humanities, Music and Drama, mainly in secondary schools and academies. Since I moved to UK in 2015, I have taught humanities and music in primary and secondary schools and tutored students of all ages in playing a musical instrument (guitar and keyboard), singing and using music software.
I qualified to teach:
- Italian language and literature, Geography and History.
- Classical, Acoustic and Electric guitar lessons up to Grade 8 and DIplomas (Trinity College, ABRSM, RockSchool).
- Piano, Bass guitar and Singing lessons up to Grade 6 (Trinity College and ABRSM).
- Music technology, sound design and audio editing tuitions and workshop on Cubase (v. 7 to 11) and Logic Pro X .
- Music theory, songwriting classes, and private tutoring for GCSE students who need extra help are also available.
- Adobe Premiere and Photoshop for video and photo editing (beginner and intermediate).
...and of course Italian grammar and literature up to A-Level and for adult learner.
"I strongly believe that anyone can achieve great results and learn anything when they’re motivated and enthused. As we know education is often focused on passing exams but too often the joy of learning for the sake of just learning is missing. I can certainly help with passing exams, but in such a way that enthuses my students to want to learn more, developing their talent and curiosity. It’s important to me to create a nurturing environment to enable my student to explore their ideas without fear of failure, building confidence and ultimately excelling. I take pride on being able to discover the way a student thinks and the style of learning that best matches them. Above all though: a good sense of humour and fun goes a long way to ensuring the whole learning experience is positive..." Paolo
