The opportunity to teach and to develop new educational materials is one of the reasons why I am in academia. I started tutoring friends at school, when I was a teenager, and then I made this a part time job along my university studies. I try to maintain an interactive and informal atmosphere, so that students feel comfortable in asking questions and being engaged. I look at teaching time as an opportunity to make students an active part of the learning process.
My favorite subjects are algebra, calculus, trigonometry, science. I have been tutoring students of all ages for many years. I am an Engineer in Telecommunication Engineering, with a Phd in Electromagnetic field. Within my academic appointment, I also tutored undergrad and grad students, preparing either exams or their master thesis.
Also, I would like to have the opportunity to teach my mother tongue, Italian, to students of all ages. I had experience in teaching Italian in the past, and I found it very exciting.
This my favorite quote:

My partner and I began preparing for our first trip to Italy knowing that we had no knowledge of the language or everyday culture. Alessia provided weekly tutoring sessions in our home for 4 months while staying focused on the basics of the Italian language and everyday usage. Every time she came to the tutoring session, she prepared materials for our lesson in advance and was focused during the tutoring sessions. She did not waste our time on idle talk while maintaining a friendly, supportive relationship. After our trip, we met to give her a report on our wonderful trip and our use of the language while there. We highly recommend Alessia for short-term tutoring to prepare for a trip or for longer-term tutoring to become more comfortable with Italian. Italian is her first language, but Alessia's English skills and knowledge of English grammar rules make her instruction meaningful.
Alessia is an extremely knowledgeable and friendly tutor! She responded to my request for an Italian tutor within a day and met with me shortly after. She was very helpful as I wrote my final paper. In addition to providing help with the task at hand, she also gave me general tips and advice with Italian that I will be sure to use in the future!
I highly recommend her as a tutor for any of her subjects of expertise- it was great to learn from her!
Alessia is a wonderful tutor, I only wish I had started working with her sooner. She is very friendly and is extremely knowledgeable about the material. She has a great understanding of even complex material and can explain in is easy to understand terms. I contacted Alessia last minute and she was very accommodating to my schedule. I highly recommend her!
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.
Discrete math is at the basis of any computer science course. I had mine at the beginning of my curriculum in Telecommunication Engineering. Particular attention was devoted to the function analysis. This is one of the most basic mathematical structure that any future calculus class must have as fundamental. The rigourus knowledge of this topic opens the doors to many other curricula, such as electronics, mechanics, phisycs, etc.
I have experience in Fortran programming. I have been programming in Fortran since 1998, when I was senior at University. First I learnt some Fortran 77, but mainly I implement my codes in Fortran 90. I used Fortran for my research activity, programming my own codes for integral calculations, differential equations, nonlinear equations systems, complex zero/poles searching, etc.
Matlab is one of the most versatile software tools for programming and analyzing data. I use Matlab on a regular basis, for small and big tasks. Matlab has a very intuitive programming language, easy to teach and learn. Also, it provides toolboxes for professional and specific jobs (digital signaling, fourier transform, etc.)
Physics is often a challenging matter for students who are not use to think outside the box. It requires mathematical basis, but also the ability to "draw" the scene in the student's mind. I find this task the most challenging one for a tutor.
As an experienced triathlete, I offer a guidance to those who need to become more comfortable in the pool. My technique is based on exercises involving "feeling the water" as a friend and not as an obstacle. Then I usually use drills associated with breathing, stroke and kicking. I can also provide tailored workouts for those who have more experience. I also have experience in open water swimming and I can provide useful suggestions. Swimming is fun!
