Hi! I am an instructor of Philosophy and Political Science at Virginia Tech. I’ve worked with students of all ages for the last ten years, both as a professor and as a private tutor. I am knowledgeable across all areas of the Humanities and can tutor in most subjects up to college level, with an emphasis on philosophy, politics, social studies, and ESL. I also teach Italian to native English speakers and English to Italians.

MIDDLE AND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
I can work with your child on: (1) improving reading comprehension; (2) grammar, usage, mechanics, punctuation, spelling, and other basic literacy skills; (3) finding a writing voice and developing healthy writing habits, including creative writing; and (4) research skills and recognizing scholarly sources. I can also develop a home-based curriculum to help introduce your child to advanced subjects, such as philosophy and critical thinking, based on your expectations and requirements.

Whether you're 6 or 60, I look forward to working with you!

Affordable & Awesome Editor Tutor!

Claudio always comes through and responds quickly. I really like how he edits on my papers. He has edited a few of my papers for class thus far. He is always committed to what he says he will do. As a grad student, there are many editor tutors out there that cost an arm and a leg, and Claudio is so great and he is also affordable, which is a huge plus. I will continue to use him as my writer and editor - helpful on every paper. If you want someone who follows through, commits to his work, loves to help you out, kind, and affordable - Pick Claudio! Thank you!

Professional editor

He is super editor. I like my experience with Claudio in reviewing and editing my dissertation document, and I plan to continue working with him for editing different paper.

Ashwaq, 3 lessons with Claudio

Knowledgeable tutor.

Very helpful with my research assignment and citations. He took the time to review my material on his own before giving me feedback. Also, something I preferred was that he made corrections on my paper. This made it easier for me to look at what I wrote and what he is suggesting side-by-side.
