Usually, my lessons are organised in a way that allows the student to practice language listening, writing, reading and speaking skills. However, I always adapt my methodology to the individual student's needs, and focus on the student's area of interest. As a second-language learner of English, I have been through the process of foreign language learning, so I can empathise with my student's experience.
I love teaching English using interactive methods, such as conversation, games or movie clips, and I am highly receptive to the student's learning methodology preferences.
I am a Kingston University graduate in English Language and Linguistics with English Literature who loves tutoring in English, and looks forward to becoming an English teacher in the future.
I have previously tutored native Italian speakers in English language, as well as some native English speakers in English literature. Moreover, I was promoted as Tutor Coordinator by the charity I was volunteering for, so I now have experience in managing other tutors. I am really enthusiastic about the English language (especially phonetics), and I believe I possess the right attributes to provide fun, fruitful and enriching tutoring sessions.
My rates vary according to the distance I need to travel.
It will be possible to cancel the tuition up to 5 hours before the lesson, and it will be possible to rearrange a suitable date and time for the next tuition.

An enthusiastic student of speech and language therapy at UCL, a graduate in English Language and Linguistics with English Literature at Kingston University London, and a passionate Notetaker and Support Worker for Equality Enterprise Ltd. My previous academic course helped me to improve my spoken and written communication skills, and to develop my critical thinking, by introducing me to new challenging literary theories.

English Literature Volunteer Tutor, St. Michael’s Catholic College, London, UK, January 2017 – June 2017
Being dedicated to volunteering and enthusiastic about the subject which I taught were the essential requisites to succeed in this project. To help my tutees, I acknowledged the diversity of their learning methods, and I adapted my teaching technique to their requirements. The greatest satisfaction that I had from this job was the gradual improvement of my students in a subject they were previously struggling with. Of course, this project required time, but the sense of fulfilment at the end of each session always made up for physical tiredness.
