I studied under leading, and in some cases the authoritative, scholars in their subject fields, ranging from early Republican Rome and the Soviet Union in the Cold War, to Human Rights and International Political Theory. An interdisciplinary academic by nature, my teaching methods are governed by the same rules I maintained as a student; to interchange between rationalised logic and an empathetic understanding of others. This is a core part of my pedagogy which, as I stated in my description, will allow students to take account of their own intellect.
By customising subject dialogue and posing investigative questions tailored to each individual, students will begin to tap into their inner precociousness and start a journey of higher understanding, no matter what age or ability. Putting it simply, no child is the same and I will adapt to the needs of every student to get the best out of our sessions.
If you wish to find out more, I am happy to send information and material that I have created which have been successful. Moreover, I am happy to arrange a one-to-one with any parent or student wishing to discuss and ask questions about my methods and learning strategies, free of charge, on Skype. This will also allow me time to speak to students, acclimatise to their skills and interests and lay out an effective scheme of learning going forward.
Currently I am researching new revolutionary teaching methodologies, which I will continue to develop in the Education Department at the University of Cambridge, having been offered a place to complete my formal teacher training there.
During my time teaching at the John Henry Newman Catholic School, Stevenage, I assisted History and Government & Politics A-Level classes whilst providing one-to-one mentoring to students with learning disabilities. Following a successful period, I was asked to stay on and prepare the year 13 students for their final exams whilst planning and delivering lessons for Year 12 students and the lower years.
Moreover, I was influential in mentoring Year 12 students in the university application process. I provided help and advice in degree selection, personal statements and supervised extra-curricular activities that made candidates stand out (see images). Many of the students I worked closely with are attending Oxbridge or higher ranked Russell Group universities in the autumn.
In the summer term I was given the responsibility of holding my own undergraduate-style course for the lower-sixth on the topic of the 1930s Holodomor. Following extensive library research and correspondence with previous professors, I began weekly lectures and seminars. The aim was so that these students could write a final 2000-word essay, to be submitted for the annual history competition held by the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain. I formulated and created a course booklet similar to those found at undergraduate level and guided three students who eventually submitted their essays to a top 10 place, 4th place and 1st place position (£1000 cash prize).
Here are some reviews from current Year 13 students that were eager to write recommendations detailing my time at the John Henry Newman Catholic School:
"Pietro worked enthusiastically and diligently with myself and others during History essay competitions and classroom curriculum learning. His encouraging and constructive feedback was extremely prompt, clear, detailed and well communicated. Advice was always offered in a uniquely passionate and patient way which made the learning all the more engaging. He was consistently approachable and conscientious, making a wonderful and highly recommendable tutor for a group or an individual". - Rachel W
"Pietro was extremely helpful in a classroom environment, providing a deeper insight and contrasting views on the chosen subject matter; encouraging us to explore the multiple angles an essay question can be tackled from. He went above and beyond, providing us with extra material such as journals, books and sources to enrich and strengthen our arguments. In regards to working with smaller study groups, Pietro demonstrated clear and in-depth knowledge and was always there to answer our questions and queries. I found learning about the Holodomor Famine fascinating as it was a subject not touched upon in my A Level History course, so it was interesting to see how it had linked to my previous knowledge. From Pietro, I have learned many skills that I will be able to transfer to any subject, from working to a deadline to finding my own material to share in seminar situations". - Izzy H
"Pietro created a fantastic working environment. In class, he was engaging and clearly passionate about the subject. He delivered each lesson in a way that was easily understandable but still got across the complexity of the issues presented. Outside of the class, he was friendly and approachable and created accessible resources to aid in teaching the classwork". - Brad B
"Pietro C. is a knowledgeable and approachable tutor who is always willing to take the time to explain things in as much depth as needed. Under his tuition, I learned the material, and was able to apply it to other situations, in a fun and relaxed environment. Pietro’s teaching, in the end, played a large role in my work being shortlisted in an essay writing competition on a subject I had previously no knowledge on". - Alex P
I am a highly experienced, flexible and very versatile tutor, with advanced degrees and teaching qualifications in business, finance, history, literature, art, classics, maths and sciences.

I believe I charge fairly for value provided, and promote an engaging, enjoyable teaching and learning style.
- We match tutors with students based on location, subject and personality.
- In order to do so, we will find out as much information about the student as possible and consequently brief the selected tutor beforehand.
- Once the most suitable tutor has been selected, they will be given the student’s contact details to arrange the first class.
- The student (or student’s parent) will then be asked to sign a contract, outlining the terms and conditions.
A trusted community of teachers and mentors that inspire kids of all ages to find the wonder in the world's diverse subject areas, working together to enhance learning and development, both in school and beyond classroom doors.
Founded on a unique philosophy towards children's learning and development, we are a community of tutors and mentors who harness the true potential of our students and bring each of our subjects to life.
We believe that building a trusting relationship with the families we work with allows us to foster a genuine passion for the subjects we teach and a love of learning in our students. We have extensive experience teaching in some of the UK’s top schools and offer unparalleled insight into and each and every stage of our students’ development.
We believe that being taken under the wing of a truly inspirational figure can have untold beneficial effects in a young person’s life, both inside and outside of the classroom.
Being guided by someone who has achieved great things in their life provides a goal for children to aspire towards. At a time when they are so impressionable, the motivation, passion and enthusiasm which can be instilled by an inspirational teacher have long-lasting and fundamental benefits.
We work with a community of highly motivated professionals from a large variety of disciplines. The common factor is that they are all highly successful and are passionate about the subjects they teach. Instilling this passion in students is the reason that they got into teaching, and as such we value our tutors hugely. Connecting these tutors with families that will reap the benefits of their expertise and with students that will thrive working with them is our core focus, and is a truly rewarding experience for all of us at Pegasus.
