Teaching is, without any doubt, one of the most important jobs ever. This might sound a cliche but it is what I really think. With almost 30 years spent as a student to gain two university degrees, I have encountered teachers form all over the world and experienced the most different teaching methods. A teacher can make the difference in a persons life, in a good or in a bad way. A good teacher can be a source of inspiration and can make you love a subject that you would have never imagined you could like otherwise. When teaching the student's benefit is the prime goal, this means that the teacher has to be able to understand what the student needs to access a specific subject, understand it, retain the information and be able to reuse it proactively whenever it is required of him. Since, as a private tutor, I work one on one with a student, I aim at creating a healthy and effective relation where the student feels comfortable to express what he/she doesn't understand and he/she can develop a positive attitude towards learning the subject under examination. Every student is unique, therefore the method used for each student is different. I plan to have a first session where I can assess what it is required of me and whether I am able to constructively interact with the student and then build a teaching program from that. I will commit to plan every session at home and come prepared to teach what is needed and I will expect that the student commits to doing his/her best to do his/her reading and homework.
I am an Italian engineer who lives in London. I am currently sharing my life between teaching and acting which are both my passions. I am making proper use of my solid background in engineering and my experience as a student in many different and prestigious institutions around Europe by giving private tutorials to students. I am a very determined and ambitious person and I believe that many things can be achieved with strong will and the right tactics. I successfully studied in Iceland, Norway and England. I studied and worked with people from all over the world and with the most different cultural backgrounds. I myself am very interested and respectful of cultural differences and I am an expert traveller: I travelled extensively through Europe, Africa, India and Japan. What's more I have a degree in acting (2.1) from a very well reputed English academy in Birmingham (Birmingham Royal Conservatoire). I can speak English fluently and I have got a very good grasp of the language (in drama school we studied pronunciation for 3 years) and a very rich and flexible vocabulary. I enjoy staying with people and I like challenges. I take my responsibilities very seriously and I aspire to create a healthy working environment where the prime goal is the students' benefit. Over the years, I have taught maths and physics to many different people, with various backgrounds, levels of knowledge and goals. Here is the latest reference from a teenager I helped prepare his GCSEs exams.
To Whom it May Concern,
Marco has during the Summer term of 2018 (6 weeks) tutored our son in year 11 for his GCSE's. His main subjects were Maths (higher level) and Physics (higher level).
We found Marco extremely easy to work with; he was flexible in his approach and teachings and quickly assessed Oscar's base line levels as to move forward with a plan. Oscar was at a level 5 in both subjects and needed to achieve a level 7 in both subjects as he wanted to move onto A levels.
Marco managed to quickly strike a mutual respect and contact with our son and this meant his enthusiasm for learning increased as he had been negative to tutoring prior. Oscar enjoyed the tutoring lessons immensely and through Marco's teaching, Oscar was inspired to continue to revise and work on his own.
Marco's lessons were well structured and responsive to Oscar's needs and levels. He also focused on getting Oscar to be exam ready and in answering questions in a timely manner with effective answers. Through his enthusiasm for the subject he managed to get Oscar more involved and encouraging him to find further knowledge. Marco's inquisitive approach to the subjects and step by step teachings resonated well with Oscar and improved his scientific thinking and problems solving.
Oscar had great success in his GCSE's and gaining a level 7 in both Maths and Physics (grade A in previous grades). Marco's approach to learning and problem solving has stayed with Oscar as it translated to his revision in other subjects such as Chemistry and Biology where he gained a level 8 (A*) and 7 (A) respectively.
Marco was always professional and with good time keeping.
We would without hesitation recommend Marco for any future positions within teaching and tutoring.
