My Approach to Private Tuition
I like to engage with the student, trying to understand what are the main concerns with the subject that is studied and where the struggle lies. I try to create example from real life situation, to show the nexus that exists between the subject studied and the everyday life. Very often students struggle as they can’t see why it should be useful to deepen the knowledge into a subject and hence lack the motivation to approach it. These examples help them to find new interest in the subject and spending time studying it and ultimately having fun!
Veronica was extremely happy when she achieved her B and she said: I never really understood how maths works because it looked so complicated in my mind. However, with your patience and the continuous example on real life subjects helped me to understand what’s the logic behind all the various formulas and to learn them
Francesco: I have never been a Genius at school and was lacking motivation in studies. Once I start tutoring with you I realised that might be some fun even in studying as you understand how everything connects together
Maria: Real Estate fundamentals was one of the most complex courses I attended at my Msc at CASS. Giovanni was very helpful because he helped me to understand the difference between all the various index and the definition that are commonly used in the market. I would highly recommend him for tutoring lessons, clear and concise
