Luca Rizzello

Hello! I'm Luca. I'm a qualified and experienced English tutor specialising in GCSE and A-Level English Language and Literature tuition, as well as SATs Primary Reading tuition. Unlock your creativity in English tuition sessions with me! I’m committed to teaching because I firmly believe that the one thing that nobody can ever take away from you is your education. 


In March 2021, I received full training in both Primary and Secondary English tuition from the Tutor Trust, a registered charity which provides government-subsidised tuition sessions to disadvantaged pupils across the UK. I completed full Safeguarding training through Educare's 'Child Protection in Education' course, and have passed all DBS checks. My lesson plans have been graded as 'Outstanding' for both Primary and Secondary tuition. I've built great relationships with all of my tutees and received lots of very rewarding feedback, with one pupil expressing early on that, unlike his experiences in school, he felt much more confident in expressing his ideas in our sessions. Another pupil explained that she felt so much 'smarter' after our very first session. I've since completed 112 hours of tuition, most of which has been online . I am therefore extremely confident in delivering online tuition and engaging pupils no matter the circumstances. 



In line with the training I received through the Tutor Trust, my lessons follow a four-part structure and are rigorously planned out in advance. Alongside writing up a detailed plan, I also create Powerpoint presentations for every lesson that include interactive resources and video clips where appropriate. I begin by evaluating the context of the lesson: looking into any pupil data including assessments from previous lessons and predicted grades; asking whether this is my first lesson with this pupil or one of a series; and identifying any specific targets or weaknesses that the pupil may be facing with regards to the topics being taught. I use this information to craft personalised, unique Learning Objectives that meet the particular needs of each pupil. I start with a Do It Now Task - a quick 5 minute activity to get the pupil's brain working and focused on today's topic area. Next, I move on to a Starter Activity, which reveals what the pupil already knows about today's topic and thereby allows me to tailor the lesson to suit them more effectively. This is followed by the Main Task, which will be an extended learning task incorporating both independent written work and group discussions. Finally, I end with a Plenary activity where I ask the students to answer questions that allow me to confirm whether they have met today's Learning Objectives, and whether there are any areas of the subject where they lack confidence and need more support. After every lesson I write up my own detailed evaluations of how the student is performing, both with regards to their academic performance and their behaviour, and then send this feedback to parents and/or school partnership leads.
