Perfect! My experience with Giacomo was what every student with urgent need of online support would hope for. I have been undertaking Aerospace engineering 3rd year and I struggled at first understanding Aerospace structures and had nearly lost hope but Giacomo was God sent as he has a lot of knowledge and experience in this subject field and we went through all materials (PowerPoint lectures and tutorials) which not only got me ready for exams but has provided a concrete foundation as I prepare to join the industry. I would highly recommend him as he is a genuinely charismatic gentleman not to mention his rates which are very much affordable for any student. Give him a go even for one session and you be your own judge as he won't disappoint. Thanks again Giacomo, if you happen to read this.
