Trusted teacher: "I strongly believe that anyone can achieve great results and learn anything when they’re motivated and enthused. As we know education is often focused on passing exams but too often the joy of learning for the sake of just learning is missing. I can certainly help with passing exams, but in such a way that enthuses my students to want to learn more, developing their talent and curiosity. It’s important to me to create a nurturing environment to enable my student to explore their ideas without fear of failure, building confidence and ultimately excelling. I take pride in being able to discover the way a student thinks and the style of learning that best matches them. Above all though: a good sense of humor and fun goes a long way to ensuring the whole learning experience is positive..." Paolo Expertise: Classical, Acoustic, and Electric guitar lessons up to Grade 8 and DIplomas (Trinity College, ABRSM, RockSchool). Piano, Bass guitar, and Singing lessons up to Grade 6 (Trinity College and ABRSM syllabus). Music technology, sound design and audio editing tuitions and workshop on Cubase (v. 7 to 11) and Logic Pro X. Music theory, songwriting classes, and private tutoring for GCSE students who need extra help are also available. I teach music lessons in Staines and West London...and all around the world (lessons can be scheduled online)

I'm able to provide support in a range of GCSE examinations including Maths, Science, English Literature, English Language, Religious Studies, Psychology and more. We'll work together on a plan to help you get to the next stage in your academic journey, after all you know yourself better than anyone. I'll provide you with the tools to revise in the most efficient and rewarding way possible while cutting down on overall revision time! My experience: I've got extensive experience supporting others in an academic and non-academic setting. I have six years’ experience tutoring students aged 4 - 16 years old. I worked with students on their work assignments as well as setting extra work to help students reach the next level in their potential. I use scientifically-ratified methods to ensure students are working to the highest level of efficiency. I am able to work with students with SEN, using scientific tools like Pictorial Exchange Program to support students in their academic and social skills while reducing the likelihood of “meltdowns.” Over those six years, I honed my ability to break down difficult topics into easily digestible lectures for each child. By using a person-centred approach, I helped the students learn in the manner most effective to them. I have a degree in Psychology BSc from Royal Holloway, University of London (ranked 9th in the UK for Psychology). I achieved an upper-second class with honours (2:1). This includes a first-class final year project. I undertook classes such as Learning & Memory and Developmental Psychology which gave me insights into how to achieve the highest level of productivity and information retention - tools that I utilised to complete my degree. I'm currently studying Medicine. While at university, I worked as a peer mentor where I provided individualised support to first year students. My caseload of students where those who were nervous upon their acceptance to university. I aided them in their transition to university by creating a safe space for them to approach me with their academic queries and social anxieties. I have excellent interpersonal skills that allowed me to build productive relationships with my students wherein they felt comfortable approaching me when in crisis. I am currently a Recovery Worker, providing support to homeless individuals in London. I specialise in providing person-centred, personalised support to entrenched rough sleepers with particularly high and complex physical, mental and substance misuse support needs. I have an outstanding record of ensuring my clients stay off the street and move along in their recovery process. This is done by having a keen eye for assessing individuals, even those who are difficult to engage and creating realistic and productive action plans. Through my dedication to belief in uplifting others and identifying a shortfall in the care provided to my most vulnerable clients, I created a successful partnership with the Premier League’s Chelsea Football Club to provide one-to-one health and fitness support to homeless people in London. Moreover, borne from a drive to give back to my local community while at University, I organised, planned and executed a school-based programme. I partnered with Age Exchange, a charity dedicated to reducing loneliness in society's most vulnerable populations, to design a ten-week programme. I used cutting edge reminiscence arts and tactile objects to help rejuvenate the memories of those with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. I liaised with local schools and care homes to link elderly individuals with local schools. Through this, I developed my ability to communicate efficiently and effectively online by creating a weekly newsletter for my volunteers, running a community page and keeping clear and open channels of communication with all parties. The programme was a tremendous success, earning the Queen's Award for Outstanding Voluntary Service which was presented by HRH Princess Anne. Furthermore, the Mayor of Runnymede came to visit, and it was featured in the local news. For my dedication to the voluntary service, I received a Gold Passport Award from Royal Holloway, University of London. I believe I am the excellent candidate to help students fulfil their potential. I have excellent time management skills as evidenced by my exemplary community outreach work while studying towards a Bachelor of Science degree. I have the drive and patience to work with students who are struggling and the ambition to help those who would like to achieve more.
