About Giovanna

I am a passionate teacher and tutor. I completed my Ph.D. in July 2016 in the Department of History at Syracuse University and relocated to Wilmington, DE. I can tutor all approaches to and periods of History. As a historian, I am particularly qualified at teaching academic and creative writing, reading and analyzing literature and primary sources, critical thinking skills, and public speaking. While my previous teaching experience has been at the college level, I can teach all age levels.

As a teacher at Syracuse University, I always gave students as much time as they needed to improve their writing. Writing takes time and effort. I break down the mechanics of writing sentence by sentence and paragraph by paragraph to help students understand how to write well and clearly. I have helped students improve their writing on academic papers, college application essays, and creative assignments. Reading is so critical to success later in life. Reading does not need to be an onerous task and I want to impart that to all students.

As a teacher, I ask students to think deeply about a subject and I want students to enjoy the learning experience. My goal is to foster and encourage life-long learning. Consequently, I am not focused on assigning additional assignments, unless necessary, but I will provide assessments and progress reports.

I am available all weekdays from 8:00am to 8:00pm. I am not available most weekends, but please feel free to ask if I can make an exception. I am happy to travel to students and meet at a convenient location. My rate is $60/hour.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Social Studies

I recently completed my Ph.D. in Early Modern European History at Syracuse University. I have seven years of experience teaching history classes at the college level. Moreover, I am able to teach reading and writing skills as related to the subject.

Energetic and very productive

During the meeting with her, she was very positive to my views and understanding my situation. Her voice was very energetic. During 2 hours, she worked with me diligently and cared my ideas. Her Ph. D. degree was one of my criterion while I was choosing a tutor. She was very productive in scholar writing due to her Ph. D. education experience. I am so glad to meet and work with her.
