My experience with tutoring began in high school when I tutored my classmates in math and English. At that time, I discovered that I was able to simplify complex topics in a way that others find very helpful. Simplifying complex concepts has helped me and my clients both in software engineering and in learning the Italian language.
I am a software engineer by trade and have worked in the industry for many years. I can help you learn general programming practices or specific skills such as Java, Unix, and SQL. I can help you identify what works well and what doesn't as you create your own software engineering solutions. Using your own specific assignments or exercises I provide, we will work together to reinforce material that we've covered. I will consistently demonstrate how to apply what you learn, since applying these skills in practice is the reason to learn them in the first place.
I am also an Italian tutor. I learned the Italian language from the perspective of knowing American English first. When learning Italian as your "first" second language, I know what is helpful and more importantly what isn't. I am also familiar with helpful resources, whatever your proficiency may be. Whether you're studying Italian in school and are struggling with all the rules or you would like to learn it on your own but find it a bit overwhelming, I can help.
My approach to tutoring starts with language: I'm convinced that simple language facilitates understanding. I use everyday words in order to make complex topics easy to understand and I excel at drawing connections to topics you already know, which helps you gain expertise as well as confidence in the subject matter.
If you or a student you know is struggling with complex topics, I'm here to help. You'll find that I'm easy to contact (and get a response!), easy to talk to, and most importantly, easy to learn from. Schedule a lesson today!
