History, Philosophy, Sociology, Classical Civilization

I am a passionate History, Sociology and Philosophy teacher (both ancient and modern). Fluent in Italian, Spanish and English I have taught History and Sociology in Madrid, Barcelona, North Italy and London. I can also teach Politics. Outside of the classroom, I have written and directed school plays, organized the school journals and the olympic games of philosophy.

My students are of differing ages and stages of proficiency, so I have plenty of experience teaching at all levels. I consider myself a friendly and patient teacher, concerned above all else with the all round development of my students' capacity for comprehensive thought. I have a strong belief in the unification of knowledge and am always striving to incorporate seemingly disparate branches of learning into a broader horizon in order to provide my students with a sufficiently complete picture.

Availability
The length and frequency of sessions can be determined by the student's requirements and availability.

The first lesson
For any given first session I like to get to know the student, find out where they're at in their course of study, and see what their current working methods are like. Usually, talking about the current piece of homework, the next upcoming exam, or due assignment is a great way to gauge their requirements, assess where my help is most needed, and thus collaboratively devise a joint programme of work.

My teaching method
I bring a broad-based interdisciplinary knowledge to a range of subjects. This allows the opportunity to consider new ideas and to place different perspectives in conversation with each other, which is an instrumental skill for improving academic writing.

A lesson with me will be interactive and lucid. I am adaptable as all students are different, so I will constantly monitor and remain attentive to our learning objectives.

My teaching methods vary, but as a rule I start with an in depth account of the subject, taking care to ground it contextually, and then proceed to a discussion of the main points. Whether the lessons take more of a dialogical form or the more typical lecture type format depends on the needs and preferences of the student.

The lessons will be focused on studying techniques, written exercises with supervision and recalling techniques. We will work not just to close any gaps but also help the student in learning how to optimize private study.


For students who need to get up to speed with content, I can offer sessions where I present you with ideas and new ways of understanding the topic.

I approach each topic according to the immediate and long-range needs of the student, whether they require help in comprehending their topic, in preparing for exams, or in planning, executing, and proofing written work. Depending on the desire and temperament of the student, I can gear my lessons either towards cramming and exam survival or towards the nurturing of lifelong learning.

My general policy is also to be flexible with what the student needs of me. For example, my payment is for the hour, however I am happy to look over work and send comments. My fee is not just one hour as I work with the student in all aspects of their learning via e-mails outside the lessons.

Pushing forward
If you're enthralled by your subject and wish to pursue it further, beyond the bounds of learning outcomes and assessment, then I can cultivate that passion in you. If you want to improve your critical or creative writing, I can help you articulate your vision and present it according to high standards; along the way I will instill good practices that will help you in any such task.

UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY OF ART AND PHILOSOPHY WITH PALOMA SÁNCHEZ
This course tries to help you better understand the history of art and philosophy, which for some is a bit complex and difficult to understand. This course is a tool to provide you with knowledge about both subjects that will help you better memorize the syllabus and understand it. That is to say, not to learn things like a parrot but to understand clearly.

SCHOOL SUPPORT - videoconferencing (Primary & Middle School)
I offer academic support from primary to secondary school (only in the general sector). I consider mutual trust to be an essential element during lessons. I am aware that struggling students are sometimes hesitant to ask questions for fear of feeling embarrassed. With me, it's different: no question or error is considered "stupid". Our goal is to learn, and it is by making mistakes that we progress! In addition, I am committed to following the student's pace and adapting to them and to your requests so that the lessons are the most effective for their learning.

Jose Manuel

Malena
English, language, literature, history and philosophy classes
I studied at a bilingual institute (Spanish-English) and I have a family from London. I have experience in private classes with various ages and different subjects: Natural Sciences, History, Music, English, Language and Literature, spoken and written Spanish, Philosophy (both in English and Spanish). I am currently studying Law. The classes will be totally focused on each student and the difficulties/qualities they present, focusing on reinforcing what has been learned. I usually follow the index of each student's textbooks as reinforcement of what they learned in class or if they have questions. I always follow up at the beginning of each class to ensure that my student retains knowledge acquired in other classes. And at the end I leave space for doubts, questions, etc. I like to make classes interactive and depending on the level of each student, completely in English whenever possible. It doesn't matter what level you have, if we are starting from scratch or if you are preparing to take any level of English exam in an official school and need support. I adapt to different levels and needs and I always make my students notice a rapid improvement in the subjects they study with me. I will make you propose new challenges according to your level to always advance in each class establishing previous knowledge. I do not have the same methodology for each student because we all have different ways and processes to learn, that is why I do a free session at the beginning, so that we can get to know each other and you can tell me what you expect from me and what skills you want to develop. Count on me!

Essay writing principles and argumentative strategies
An argumentative, scientific or philosophical essay is a text which aims to present and defend a thesis. Writing such a text requires clear and concise prose, the ability to present ideas in a structured way and a good command of the logical principles that govern argumentative reasoning. I hold a PhD in analytical philosophy and I have 15 years of experience in Switzerland, Italy and England in the fields of academic research (philosophy and scientific psychology) and teaching. The aim of this course is to assist you in writing your essays by promoting the development of the different skills required to master all phases of this process.

Danilo Fraga
PhD at University of California teaches Propositional Logic, First-Order Logic, and Non-Classical Logics.
In my classes, I employ a dynamic and engaging teaching approach that combines traditional lectures, thought-provoking exercises, and challenging logical puzzles. I firmly believe that philosophy is not an isolated discipline but rather a vital link between various other sciences and real-world problems. As such, my teaching philosophy revolves around exploring the intricate interplay between philosophy and other scientific disciplines, bridging the gap between theory and practical applications.
