About Simone

Linguistics & Social Sciences Tutor - FR/SP/IT teacher (PhD)

LAUNCH OFFER (ends 30 November)!!! (please notice that I currently offer distance tutoring only: Skype, email, etc.)

I hold a PhD in Linguistics from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS, University of London). I have a proven track-record of helping London BA and MA students get Firsts in just months, in a wide range of social sciences. I possess outstanding skills in academic essay writing, editing, and proofreading. Some of my experiences and abilities are illustrated below:

Tutoring experience:
- Over 4 years of tutoring experience with London-based BA and MA students from various backgrounds (e.g. Japan, Iran, etc.). I have helped students succeed despite their initial difficulties (e.g. their level of academic English was not good enough).
- Editing and proofreading of countless assignments, essays, and dissertations, often to very tight deadlines! My students have always loved my patience and my ability to explain complicated concepts in a clear way.

Academic education and teaching:
- PhD in Linguistics and MA in Language Documentation and Description. Completing these degrees has given me advanced knowledge of syntax, morphology, phonetics, phonology, semantics, pragmatics, and sociolinguistics (among others). I strengthened my interpersonal and cross-cultural skills thanks to my extensive fieldwork in Morocco (my PhD research focused on Ayt Atta Tamazight, a Berber language of Morocco).
- Tutoring of three ten-week BA and MA courses during my PhD (General Linguistics, Introduction to Phonology, and Applied Language Documentation of Description).
- BA in Philosophy from University of Bologna (Italy), with a thesis in political philosophy (Hannah Arendt and the concept of Vita Activa).

Language skills and language teaching:
- Native/bilingual knowledge of English, French, Spanish, and Italian. I have lived and worked in several countries, acquiring advanced language skills in the process.
- Teaching of English, French, Spanish, and Italian at a language school in Rimini (Italy). I managed to create lasting connections with many students, who appreciated my expertise as well as my professional and empathic approach.

A great tutor

Written by Golchehr Hamidi M
I first reached out to Simone on my first year of undergraduate studies after having failed my first submitted essay and having taken that as a sign I would fail my degree altogether. Simone helped me throughout my BA degree and... three years later I graduated with a first class honours! Simone's supervision at the time of writing my dissertation was the reason why I was then granted a full scholarship for doing my MA straight after.
Simone 's supportively-strict and patiently-precise tuition made me understand critical thinking and academic writing and gain confidence in my work. I will forever be grateful to him.

Reliable, supportive, and knowledgeable tutor

Written by Tracey Carro N

I met Simone at the School of Oriental and African Studies where we both completed graduate degrees. During this time Simone tutored several students and would often receive new requests for tutoring mainly through word-of-mouth recommendations as a committed and well prepared tutor, able to offer tailored support and establish an excellent rapport with a variety of students.
Simone tutored me in morphophonology, covering a number of topics with which I was struggling. His explanations were very clear and coherent and he reinforced them with many examples to illustrate the main ideas. He was able to answer all my questions with great patience and helped me to expand my knowledge on the subject once my understanding of the basic concepts improved. Besides his excellent tutoring skills, Simone is very reliable and has an engaging personality, so I would recommend him to any student.
