As an Oxford Classics undergraduate I am very fortunate to be taught by world-renowned academics and teachers, and I found Giacomo's teaching to be of the same excellent calibre. His explanations of even the trickiest grammar points are clear, thorough and (remarkably!) interesting. Constructions which I had struggled to grasp all the way through GCSE and A level were explained simply and memorably, and his knowledge of authorial style is vast. Giacomo was a patient, responsive and kind teacher, and I am a better linguist for having been taught by him.
