My Passion & How I Inspire

I believe in working with the student’s interests and finding an approach that engages with their style of learning, whilst trying to boost their confidence and desire to learn more around the subject.

My Experience

I have experience tutoring French and Spanish to GCSE level (AQA) (2013)

In my Year Abroad I taught Italian to small children as well as tutoring adults in professional English, specifically for the IUSS exam at the University of Pavia. (2015-16) I helped Italian students at Bocconi University in Milan with their written English.

I have helped prospective students to the University of Cambridge with their applications, specifically with the SAQ and the interview process.

At University I helped younger students with their French and Italian oral preparations as well as with their Year Abroad dissertations.
