Ciao!

My name is Agnese. I am an Italian native speaker with a PhD in Italian linguistics from the University of Melbourne. I am passionate about teaching my language, but I can also help you with a variety of subjects, such as Maths, English, Linguistics, Spanish, German, History, Geography, etc.

Whether you are a university student, a VCE student, a primary school kid, a vocational learner, a beginner or a very advanced learner... I can assist you with your learning. Your goals are what matters to me. We can build strategies together to develop and refine your learning skills, making sure that, with each class, we work towards your goals and also that we have a good time in the process. Learning is fun! :-)

Whilst my area of expertise is Italian (I am also a native speaker of Italian), I am able to assist students in a wide range of subjects. This is because I have a holistic approach that looks at the student(s) with all their needs, including motivation, study strategies, emotional support, identification of key concepts, presentation skills, memorisation etc. I value my relationship with each of my students and I appreciate the uniqueness of their life experiences, their personalities and, above all, their aspirations.

"When I started lessons with Dr Agnese, I had very limited Italian language skills. Although I have Italian heritage and learned Italian at high school, my family never spoke Italian when I was growing up. I wanted to become fluent among my wider Italian community and when I travel. After learning with Agnese for a year or so, I travelled through Italy in late 2019 and was thrilled to be able to understand the locals and have the confidence to converse. I recently started lessons again with Agnese to maintain and improve my skills. I learn quicker with Agnese than with any other teacher or method. She continues to be extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, generous, reliable and a fantastic teacher. And adaptable - she is constantly evolving tools and tricks and finding ways to accelerate my learning and help me remember lessons better. While I always prefer lessons face to face, Agnese is flexible and offers online lessons which is convenient when I'm unable to meet in person. I HIGHLY recommend Agnese, she is a wonderful tutor and a lovely person too."
