Friendly Italian native speaker Classicist

I am Associate Lecturer of Latin at the Courtauld Institute of Art. At the same time, I also teach some literature modules at King`s College London, where I have recently completed my PhD on the Greeks` and Romans` perception of their literary past and how this affected Horace`s poetics. I have been teaching Classics and Classics-related subjects for many years, as a private tutor, in schools, and at University. The confidence and experience I gained allowed me to become Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. My passion for and expertise in ancient literature and culture have made me a doctoral member of the International Réseau for the Study of Augustan Poetry. Besides pursuing my Classics-related research, I am translating a 1671 book from Latin to English within a project led by two Irish scholars.
I have ten years of experience in teaching people of different ages in a variety of contexts (private tutoring, university seminars and lectures, summer schools...). This has led me to be able to tailor my teaching method to the individual needs of my students. I look forward to being your tutor!

Latin Teaching

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.
