A bit about Alberto P

A passionate and dedicated humanities teacher with a wealth of experience in teaching History, Philosophy, and Politics across secondary and high schools. A key priority for me is to contextualise today’s world for my pupils by providing a comprehensive and comparative teaching approach across these interconnected subjects. I hold my QTS and I am a certified examiner of History GCSE. 2017 – 2018: Teaching Methodologies for Italian as a Secondary Language (postgraduate vocational training) 2016 – 2017: Teaching Methodologies for Humanities in intercultural Contexts (postgraduate vocational training) 2014 – 2015: Teacher training – Universidad Complutense of Madrid 2010 – 2012: Masters in History – University of Padua (Italy) + ERASMUM 110/110 2008 – 2010: Bachelors in History – University of Padua (Italy) 110/110 2002 – 2007: Diploma di Maturità Scientifica (Equivalent to A-Levels) 92/100 15 years ago To teach humanities is to teach a way of thinking that is genuinely transformative. I strive to convey the subject in a way that allows this dimension to come alive for others. 

In addition to the above, I also offer advice on structuring strong philosophical arguments. This goes hand in hand with an understanding of philosophy: to think the subject is to practice it. My teaching method 
I bring a broad-based interdisciplinary knowledge to a range of subjects. This allows the opportunity to consider new ideas and to place different perspectives in conversation with each other, which is an instrumental skill for improving academic writing. A lesson with me will be interactive and lucid. I am adaptable as all students are different, so I will constantly monitor and remain attentive to our learning objectives.
 
My teaching methods vary, but as a rule I start with an in depth account of the subject, taking care to ground it contextually, and then proceed to a discussion of the main points. Whether the lessons take more of a dialogical form or the more typical lecture type format depends on the needs and preferences of the student. The lessons will be focused on studying techniques, written exercises with supervision and recalling techniques. We will work not just to close any gaps but also help the student in learning how to optimize private study. For students who need to get up to speed with content, I can offer sessions where I present you with ideas and new ways of understanding the topic. I approach each topic according to the immediate and long-range needs of the student, whether they require help in comprehending their topic, in preparing for exams, or in planning, executing, and proofing written work. Depending on the desire and temperament of the student, I can gear my lessons either towards cramming and exam survival or towards the nurturing of lifelong learning. My general policy is also to be flexible with what the student needs of me. For example, my payment is for the hour, however I am happy to look over work and send comments. My fee is not just one hour as I work with the student in all aspects of their learning via e-mails outside the lessons. Pushing forward If you're enthralled by your subject and wish to pursue it further, beyond the bounds of learning outcomes and assessment, then I can cultivate that passion in you. If you want to improve your critical or creative writing, I can help you articulate your vision and present it according to high standards; along the way I will instill good practices that will help you in any such task.
