My teaching method is tailored to the student's individual needs and aspirations and vary from working specifically towards a qualification (GCSEs or A Levels) to the deepening and widening of the student's knowledge with the view of gaining access to top class universities in Uk; from the covering a specific topics to the learning of research methods and exam tecnique. I teach home students, but also students of different backgrounds and nationalities helping them to adapt to and master the UK academic system.
I started tutoring and teaching Politics nearly five years ago after a career as a political adviser in Westminster. My academic background is in Philosophy and my specialism is in Anglo-american Political Theory. Over the past five years I tought to both individual students and in classrooms, in independent and in state-funded schools, in person and online.
I hold a BA/MA in Philosophy (grade: Summa cum Laude/First Honor's Degree) with specialism in Contemporary Anglo-American Political Theory. I studied at the University of Florence, Naples and the LSE in London. In 2016, after a career as a Parliamentary Adviser and Programme Director in the House of Commons, I started teaching Politics GCSE and A Level with the view of passing my knowledge and expertise to the next generations and help students to fulfil their potential and realize their aspirations.
I have been tutoring and mentoring students for many years, mainly for GCSEs and A levels, but also on specific topics or in preparation for entering the UK University System. Alongside my individual tutoring work I have tought in formal school settings, in both indipendent and state-funded schools.
