I’m Edoardo, and I am a Ph.D. student in Nice, France. I live in Turin with my wife Anna. My research is about the growth of nationalism in XIX century across the Atlantic Ocean, and is mostly based on correspondences and old documents.
Since high school I am fond of French language and literature. I chose Nice to obtain a BA in philosophy before coming back in Turin. I started teaching in 2009 to students, then in 2013 I began working with specialized agencies to teach professionals. I am daily involved with French because of my research and because of my work environment; but, most of all, teaching allows me to keep constantly updated about pedagogy, and of course about French culture, news, and literature.
I like the one-to-one classes as well as groups lessons; I aim at working by exploiting students’ interests, be it photography, travelling, cooking or movies. I am curious to learn from, and exchange with, students.
Besides working, I like to spend time with my wife and my friends, especially doing sport: we like to bike around the city, and from time to time we travel by bike in and out of Europe.
