Native English speaker looking for tutoring job in Rome
I am a mother-tongue english speaker who can also speak Italian to an advanced level having studied it at university and spent the last year in Rome. I first become interested in working with children through volunteering every summer in Norfolk at a children's camp. This would involve running and organising games and activities, entertaining the kids and arranging days out, with kids from a range of ages from 11 to 18. I also volunteering at the Portobello Trust in London with Homework Club. This involves helping younger children from rough schools with their homework.
I am a kind and patient person who knows well the value of a tutor who works hard to make studying more accessible and more interesting for children. At school I volunteered weekly with a girl who had Down's syndrome. This taught me a huge amount about the value of compassion and understanding for others.
When on my year abroad from university I lived in Venice with a family for 8 months, volunteering for the mother's organisation but also helping the 6 year old son with his homework, picking him up from school and playing football with him in the campo. Before living here I was in Milan for 3 months volunteering for the charitable foundation, Mission Bambini. This organisation was committed to helping disadvantaged children in schools across Italy at any age. These experiences helped me to value the power of education in changing lives.
My time in school and university helped me to realise the importance of passionate teachers who are able to bring subjects to life for their students whilst demystifying complexities making subjects more accessible to all.
