Passionate Psychology and Language Teacher With Two Masters Degrees
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
-Teach Psychology (I have a Batchleor and a Masters degree in Psychology; Experienced in Research and Social Support).
-Teach Italian (I am Native in Italian).
-Teach English (TEFL Certified; Extended teaching Experience; Lived and studied in the UK for 6 years).
When I concluded my studies in the UK (Bsc Psychology, Msc Political Psychology), I decided to travel around South America for two years. After intitially hitchinikg I later solo by bicycle from Chile to Brazil. During this time I have put into practice what I have learned during my degree as well as expanding my experience teaching Languages (I am TEFL certified) and Psychology.
I am currently taking my second Masters degree in Journalism.
I) The final year modules for my Bsc in Psychology where: Psychophysiology, Studies in Consciousness, Clinical Psychology, The Psychology of Counseling, Forensic Psychology, Occupational Psychology and Work Experience.
For My final dissertation I produced a quantitative research exploring how exposure to digital technologies affect reality perception in terms of dissociation and derealisation, controlling as well for age.
II) The modules I studied for my Masters degree in Political Psychology where: Political Psychology, Negotiation and Mediation, Public Opinion: Nature and Measurements, Advanced Statistics and Methodology, Advanced topics in Inter-group Relations.
Whilst for my final dissertation I explored in an observational manner the online discourse of collective action movements organized through social media. The study involved mixed methods. I analyzed the online generated content both from a qualitative perspective (through content analysis) and through quantitative analysis.
I am currently taking on my second Masters in Journalism which has given me further perspective into the psychology of media.
AS A TUTOR
Another great passion of mine is Parkour. Whilst working as a tutor I have used this skill to make the lessons more fun for young students. I have taught both in-class settings as well as 1 to 1 tutoring online and in person.
Other than the experience in teaching English, Italian and Psychology, I am currently volunteering for NewsWise, a project by The Guardian, to teach Journalism to young student in disadvantaged schools.
During my degree in psychology I have also gained extensive experience in teaching children and adults with learning disabilities.
I believe that one of the key aspects as a tutor is to motivate and infuse confidence in the students. Indeed once they believe in themselves only the sky is the limit.
