ExperienceI have been working as an Italian, Art, and Special Needs (all subject) teacher in Melbourne for 4 years now (C.I.S. - Centre of Italian Studies in Carlton & Private Tutoring), for all subjects and Education levels (ENG & ITA). I have worked for almost 10 years in Italy as an Italian, Art, English, and Special Needs teacher. I have also experience in preparing students for the Academic IELTS test. Currently, I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Performance Art at Monash University.
Since 2006 - Appointed Teacher in the Official Rank of Institutes of the City of Turin (IT): Primary Education (all subjects); Visual Arts and Art History (Secondary & Tertiary Education); Special Needs teacher (PrImary, Secondary School, and Tertiary Education).
I have extensive experience in teaching Italian language & culture, Art History, and Fine&Visual Arts to people of all ages. I have worked with people of various ethnic groups and linguistic backgrounds, and I am specialized in teaching children and young people with difficulties (e.g. attention deficit disorders, learning difficulties, dyslexia ....).
I also worked as Private Tutor and Special Aid Teacher for a student with a psychological disability, in collaboration with Dr. Nicoletta Alberta (Psychologist and Personal Therapist) at the Academy of Fine Arts in Turin, IT (Tertiary Education).
In Art, I have been training and working with leading public and private institutions. I participated as an appointed lecturer, speaker, and performer at the following conferences and venues: Melbourne 47 (City of Melbourne); PSi#22 Conference (Melbourne University); MAXXI Museum in Rome, "International House of Women" in Rome, Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Academy of Fine Arts in Turin. As a performance and visual artist, I participated in several exhibitions in Europe, Middle East, and Australia (e.g. 12th Art Biennal in Istanbul).
HobbiesI love art and languages, teaching, travelling, being immersed in Nature, swimming, and cooking.
I am friendly, reliable, and very patient with my students! I love to see them enjoying the classes, improving, and becoming confident!
My motto is: "Mistakes are welcome!" :-)
My classes are tailored to the student's individual needs. I provide the material for most of the classes (especially IELTS and ITA), unless the student has specific material to work on. In the case of special needs students in school age, I am happy to work with the material provided by their school and to communicate with the school teachers where needed.
My first and most important "rule" is to make the student feel comfortable to learn in the best possible way for them.

Angela is a very competent and very patient tutor to my 14 year old daughter. She is a quick and creative thinker, and can assist my daughter in all her year 9 subjects. She is able to help her in her approach to studying, as well as with the actual work set. Angela is always punctual, reliable, friendly and polite, and my daughter enjoys working with her. We highly recommend Angela as a tutor.
