Isabel V

I am an Italian-American postgraduate student, currently studying 20th Century Literature. I graduated Newcastle University, where I majored in English Literature with a minor in Japanese, with First Class Honours. I am extremely passionate about English Literature and would love to help students who find themselves struggling with their exams or essay-writing. As a native Italian speaker, I am also happy to tutor anyone wanting to learn Italian, be they a novice or an advanced learner. At Newcastle University, I led small Italian conversation groups at beginner, intermediate and advanced level, so I have a wide range of expertise in tailoring to different levels. As Italian is not a widely spoken language, I am always incredibly excited to teach it!
I have a lot of experience tutoring adult students, especially in English as a Foreign Language. As an undergraduate, I taught English on a one-to-one basis to adult refugees from Sudan and Syria for four years, tackling anything from grammar, to speaking, to spelling and writing.
Finally, I have an advanced knowledge of Japanese, after having studied the subject for four years and spent a year abroad in Kyoto, and would be more than happy to help anyone on their journey towards mastering this difficult language.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your learning journey!
