I believe I could be of help to any student:
-who wants to improve his or her ability to write academic essays or is looking for help with English grammar
-who is struggling with elementary/advanced Spanish or elementary French or who would like to learn the vocab and grammar relevant to whichever subject area
-who would like assistance in the reading comprehension and analysis of high school or college level literature
-who is looking for help with a Philosophy course
As a writing tutor in undergraduate school, I discussed and revised tons of peer essays by addressing the grammatical, structural, and contextual aspects of different kinds of essays and styles of writing, and many of the students with whom I worked spoke English as a second language. I have obtained tutoring work in Spanish 1 through an online service in the past. This happened during the summer between the student's eighth grade and ninth grade years, and we were able to successfully cover all of the material in her high school's Spanish 1 textbook by meeting twice a week for an hour and a half over the course of two or two and half months. I have developed comprehension of the grammar concepts learned in elementary to advanced Spanish and elementary French through the study of the languages of French, Spanish, and Ancient Greek in high school and college. For my undergrad degree, I triple majored in Philosophy, Creative Writing, and Foreign Language/Spanish and studied English Literature as well as literature written in the Spanish language.
I would like to tutor because I am looking for work and am interested in a career in teaching.

I am taking English lessons from Giancarlo, up to now I have taken 6 hours of lessons. Giancarlo and the lectures definitely exceeded my expectations in a positive way. I feel that in these 6 hours I have improved considerably. The frequency of the mistakes that I do when using English (this is the reason I am taking these lessons) have dropped significantly relative to the time span of 6 hours of classes. Giancarlo knows the subject matter well, he is flexible, supportive and his explanations are clear. I am quite satisfied and I will keep using his service.
