About Giorgio

I currently live in Sacramento and teach Latin at John Adams Academy in Roseville. I graduated from Boston College with a Master's in Secondary Latin Education. Prior to that, I graduated UC Davis in the spring of 2010 with a B.A. in Comparative Literature. I have produced many essays throughout my college career, many of which were over 10 pages in length. When it comes to literary analysis, organizing a great essay, and improving your writing skills overall, I'm your guy.

I also have extensive experience tutoring math and helping students to prepare for SATs and/or improve their grades. Please contact me if you would like information about references.

As for foreign languages, I speak Italian, read & write German, and have spent over a decade studying Latin (Vergil, Catullus, Horace, Ovid, Cicero) and Ancient Greek (Homer, Thucydides, etc.). I would be happy to tutor in those subjects as well.

Great Latin Tutor — When I am looking for a tutor, I often look for a person who is patient and calm in their approach to teaching. Giorgio is both. I am not afraid to ask him questions when I am puzzling over something. He clearly knows what he is talking about whenever I ask questions about Latin translation and scansion.
