Information about Giacomo

I have recently moved to Birmingham after finishing a PhD on contemporary experimental theatre at the University of Cambridge. I am living as part of Hodge Hill Church`s "Common Ground" community, supporting a range of community and outreach projects for local people of all ages (for which I have been DBS-checked).

Moving here has marked a break after nine years of university studies: before the PhD, I read an undergraduate degree in English from Cambridge, I spent a year at Harvard University as a Kennedy Memorial Scholar, and did a Masters focusing on drama and American poetry at the University of Warwick. I look forward to tutoring as a way to continue sharing the knowledge I`ve gained and my passion for it!

Availability: Available all day on Saturdays, and a range of weekday evenings from 5pm to 9pm. Some availability during the day on weekdays.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: Alongside my PhD, I taught Cambridge undergraduates in a variety of settings including one-to-one `supervisions`, classes of three to eight students and larger seminars. My main teaching focus was contemporary literature and theatre, but I also taught Shakespeare, a range of nineteenth- and twentieth-century novels and an introduction to Italian poetry for non-Italian speakers.

I am a qualified EFL teacher, and have taught General English classes to adults and children at a range of levels for Oxford House College, London, as well as on a voluntary basis in school, university and refuge settings. One-to-one tutoring in EFL has been a particular joy and strength: when qualifying, I gained full marks for the Student Profile coursework, which involved designing and delivering a bespoke course based on a student`s needs.

Between 2010 and 2012, I tutored primary and secondary school students with a particular focus on English and more general 11+/GCSE exam preparation. Offering inclusive alternatives to existing educational structures has always been important to me: as an undergraduate, I was my college`s elected Access Officer and organised a range of programmes to encourage entry to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities from students from non-traditional backgrounds; more recently, I have taught on summer schools organised by Teach First and the Sutton Trust for these purposes.
