I am an Italian native speaker and a qualified Italian Teacher.
I have a degree in Arts and Humanities, a Master in teaching Italian, several certificates and diplomas for teaching Italian. I have had teaching experiences with children, teens and adults in Italy, the UK and Australia.
I also taught children and adults from non-European countries on their integration path in Italy.
I can’t recommend Anton highly enough as an Italian language teacher! In less than 2 years I have gone from understanding no Italian to achieving a basic level of reading, writing, listening and speaking fluency. Anton is immensely patient and encouraging and is always happy to adapt lessons to my preferences. The lessons are fun, varied and centered around real life scenarios. Thanks to Anton’s support I have developed a genuine enthusiasm for Italian language and culture and I look forward to my weekly lessons.
Anton was the Italian teacher in my adult learner's class for two-three years. He was always helpful, reliable, most approachable and made learning a fun activity. He used a range of methods to cover reading and comprehension, conversation, grammar, pronunciation and cultural aspects. For example, experiential tasks, games, listening exercises. and small group competitions, Class was always varied, challenging and enjoyable. His sense of humour made it a pleasure to participate. I would highly recommend Anton for all these skills and qualities, and also for his skill in managing different levels of language ability whilst not diminishing confidence.
After being a pupil of Antonio for almost 3 years at the Italian Institute in Melbourne, we could not have asked for a better teacher! He was patient and understanding, with a gentle manner. An excellent teacher!
Anton taught Italian to a group of adults (of which I was a member) for three years, both in person and over Zoom when the city was in extended lockdown. Because all members of the group had a reasonable level of skill in Italian, Anton took the opportunity to be creative in his choice of materials and varied learning scenarios. Lessons and homework gave a wide view of current Italian life and culture as well as language. He was always well prepared and paid particular attention to our listening skills with recorded material that stretched our ability. He has a good sense of humour and a personal style that shows a sincere interest in his students´ progress. Highly recommended.
I got to know Anton as a teacher of Italian when I participated in group classes and private lessons with him in Melbourne, Australia in recent years. He is a dedicated, knowledgeable teacher who matched the content of his lessons to his students' interests and needs. Anton uses a wide variety of interesting materials and has an extensive repertoire of teaching strategies. Truly an excellent teacher!
I was a student of Anton's for a couple of years, including last year. We are an Italian class at the C.A.E. in Melbourne, all of us in our 60s and 70s. Antonio is a wonderful teacher and every lesson was full of interest and diversity. Sometimes we would work on language puzzles and games, as well as very helpful listening exercises, along with our more traditional grammar and comprehension activities. We were all extremely sorry to lose him as our teacher, and I could not recommend him more highly.
I have been studying Italian for over 20 years and have had a number of teachers.
Anton, had a real give for making even the driest grammar lessons fun. He would come up with games that involved dividing the class into teams and getting us to compete by answering questions. He also got us to discuss various aspects of our lives in Italian which was always challenging but a lot of fun and we all got to learn a great deal about each other. During the long COVID lockdowns we did lessons over Zoom and Anton got each of us to take the class on a tour of our homes over Zoom. Anton was the best for make the time fly and lessons something to look forward to. I learned a great deal in the classes and was really sad when he had to move on.
I highly recommend him to anyone wanted to learn Italian.
Anton is a gifted teacher and very professional. He taught our class Italian. He creates an enjoyable yet challenging learning environment that encourages students to participate fully whatever their level and to ask questions.
In COVID we switched to Zoom for a year and again Anton planned his lessons to give us the best learning experience. He developed our conversation and listening skills, gave us written work and taught us the nuances of grammar, all with great enthusiasm and also a sense of fun in learning. He always provided great feedback on
I always looked forward to our lessons, and as a class, we all enjoyed his company and friendship.
Anton is an excellent teacher of Italian. I studied with him for 3.1/2 years at the Centre of Adult Education, Melbourne. His lessons were informative, varied and fun. His explanations of the grammar were clear and incisive. During Covid lockdowns in 2020, he conducted our class on Zoom and his knowledge of the technology was of great assistance in sharing papers, conducting exercises, etc. We all missed him greatly when he decided to return to Italy.
Anton is an excellent teacher. He is warm and friendly with a great sense of humour and is very creative in finding ways to help his students to learn and to love Italian. I enjoyed my classes with him in Australia very much as he was interested in so many things - books, music, films and travel - that came up in our class conversations.
Anton is an excellent and talented teacher. He’s very professional, very knowledgeable and his method of teaching Italian lessons is fun and enjoyable. You will learn Italian very well by having Anton as your teacher.
I had Italian lessons with Anton for over four years when he was living and working in Melbourne. He is an excellent teacher, extremely patient and friendly. He always made learning Italian fun and we had many laughs along the way. I would certainly recommend Anton for anyone wanting to study Italian.
Anton was my Italian teacher last year when I decided to learn the language during a long Covid lockdown. I was really impressed by his ability to teach a foreign language to students in an online platform. He was very patient with his students and did a great job in adjusting lesson plans to fit an online structure. Anton’s lessons were varied and innovated. We had reading comprehension exercises, listening exercises, sentence structure, and my favourite, the opportunity to practice speaking the language with fellow classmates. He also offered us the opportunity complete fun homework activities that I found to be a useful/practical way of learning new vocabulary. Anton was always ready to answer any questions we had and encouraged us to try our best. He brought humor to the class, which made for an enjoyable experience . I would definitely recommend Anton as your Italian teacher! Buona fortuna a tutti!
Anton was an amazing teacher!!
Anton prepared me for B1 test. He is very good at explaining new concepts, happy to answer questions, makes lessons interesting and fun.
He's also well-organised teacher and well-prepared and flexible in responding to changing priorities.
I highly recomend him if you want to have a successful outcome! :)
I took lessons with Anton during lockdown in Melbourne and he was a very helpful and engaging teacher.
He knows a great deal about the Italian language and was clear and precise in his instruction.
I enjoyed our classes with Antonio who always came prepared with interesting lessons and exercises. He is an excellent and kind teacher.
Anton taught me and 2 of my friends Italian over a number of years in Melbourne, Australia. He always came to our classes well prepared and provided us with a variety of activities to enhance our listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. Anton was always punctual, cheerful and patient and my love for the Italian language was greatly enhanced during that time. I wish him well in his new endeavours.
Anton is a super friendly, dedicated teacher who always made our classes fun. He always ensured we all felt comfortable to try. Our class was a little family and Anton was our big brother teaching us all. I highly recommend him for your learning.
I had the pleasure of learning Italian with Anton. Over several months we met weekly to learn. I had such a great time. Not only did I learn Italian, but I also had fun! The lessons were well thought out and Anton always kept me engaged in the lesson. Written, verbal and audio lessons were all included to keep me entertained
I would definitely recommend Anton!
Anton was a great teacher and always well prepared for lessons. His lessons were always interesting and varied. There were always interesting ways of learning, moved, conversation and games to help us learn. I am a teacher and I highly recommend Anton as a teacher.
Antonio could not have been a better help for me throughout Year Twelve Italian. As a result of regular Zoom meetings with Antonino, my confidence in speaking the language grew exponentially and made my year so much easier overall. I think my experience throughout this year, especially during COVID restrictions, is a testament to Antonio’s ability to engage and truly aid his students regardless of the individual’s respective situation - I would highly recommend Antonio to anyone who needs assistance with their Italian.
Anton conducted weekly Conversation Practice with my Year 12 students of Italian. During these sessions, he furthered the students’ conversation skills in preparation for Speaking SACs, and assisted in preparing them for the end-of-year Oral Examination on the themes, topics and subtopics as outlined in the VCAA's VCE Italian Study Design.
Anton encouraged the students to develop confidence in speaking in Italian. He gauged students’ abilities in order to extend them accordingly and provided students feedback. Furthermore, he tracked their progress over sessions and regularly relayed this information back to me, as their teacher.
During periods of remote learning, which resulted from lockdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Anton ran the Conversation Sessions via an online videoconferencing platform. His flexibility, consistent reliability and timely communication have all been greatly appreciated.
Antonio has taught me so so much! I learnt Italian for five years before he became my tutor and I have learnt more from him in the last six months than I had in those five years!! Every lesson he has come prepared to teach me in the areas of the language that I struggle with and I can’t even explain just how much I have improved just because of him! I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn Italian.
Anton is patient and very skilful. He taught me Italian, and I am useless at languages. His lessons are enjoyable and creative.
Antonio was my Italian tutor over a period of 4 years in Melbourne, Australia.
I was one of his senior students as I am in the retirement period of my life.
Antonio was my teacher for private lessons on all aspects of the Italian language, from grammar, reading, listening and talking.
We were able to develop a happy rapport and Antonio was able to make difficult parts of the Italian language understandable and his verbal skills in the English language was of great benefit to suit my specific purpose.
I found Antonio to be patient, calm, straightforward and even-tempered.
Frankly, I am sorry that Antonio could not obtain a permanent residency visa to become an Australian citizen as I know him to be hard-working and committed and would have been a worthy citizen of Australia.
I have no reservations in giving this reference and strongly support, from afar, his future pursuits in his teaching career
I have known Anton since I began Italian lessons with him in February 2020. I can attest to the fact that Anton plans his lessons thoroughly, making sure he caters for each student's ability level. His lessons cover speaking, listening, reading and writing tasks and he regularly revises grammar that he has taught. His lessons also incorporate Italian customers, geography and culture. Anton willingly provides extra work and feedback if his students want it.
Anton is respectful, inclusive, polite and good fun. I am an experienced teacher myself and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him as an outstanding teacher.
Anton was my first Italian teacher in Melbourne. He is a passionate and experienced teacher. He makes the lessons fun and enjoyable.
Anton is a professional, conscientious and friendly Italian teacher - thanks for the lessons.
I met Anton on Facebook because I was looking to improve my Italian. Anton is the style of teacher who always try to find the best way to help you to learn with professional technics but always with fun. So I strongly recommend Anton to anybody who want to have fun in learning Italian with a professional and genuine teacher. Grazie Anton, you are my Superprof!!!
Antonio is an excellent teacher who is dedicated, encouraging and patient.
His lessons are organised, engaging and well rounded. The classes were structured for each lesson to include grammar, reading, writing and conversation. The conversation topics were fun and relaxed making it easier to give speaking the language a go.
He caters for the needs of all the students and is always available to help.
Anton made connections to the Italian culture which made learning the language authentic and interesting.
I feel my Italian has really improved.
Anton was a delight to have as a teacher. He was always well prepared and genuine in his efforts to help us to improve our Italian language skills, as well as our knowledge with respect to Italian culture. He brought a range of fun and engaging exercises to each lesson.Over the years I have had many excellent Italian language teachers, of which Anton is one of the standouts. I highly recommend him!
Antonio is a typically charming Italian; kind and accommodating. He is organised and patient and has a thorough knowledge of complex grammar for those students whose learning style benefits from the application of rules.
I engaged Anton for weekly Italian lessons ahead of a planned trip to Italy to celebrate my 50th birthday. One of my friends joining the trip also ended up doing the classes - and we loved every minute. It was something we looked forward to every Monday. Anton was always on time; he’s unfailingly polite; he has the patience of Jobe; and laughed at all of our jokes! The way he teaches Italian - making it really conversational, and practicing real-life scenarios - helped us become confident enough to have been able to hold basic conversations with locals. Unfortunately, Covid dashed our travel plans - but we will have the wonderful memories of Anton’s weekly tutorials forever! I can’t recommend him highly enough - as a tutor, and as a trustworthy, lovely friend. Michelle
Anton is a very good teacher. He is patient with the struggling students and assures that all students are on the same level before continuing to the next stage of learning. He understands that others learn quicker than others and never hesitates to help.
I highly recommend Anton as a tutor of Italian language. I commenced weekly private Italian lessons with Anton when I was studying to sit for the CELI 4 C1 and CELI 5 C2 exams.
Anton developed a tailor made program for me encompassing all aspects of the language (and exam): listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar. In addition to the exercises and past exam papers completed during the weekly classes, Anton gave me further assignments each week to complete before the next class, where possible, so that he could provide me with feedback.
Anton was always available to answer any questions, even after the classes, replying to all emails. He would also email me during the week to see how I was progressing.
(Even during lockdown, due to COVID-19, Anton continued to run private classes via Zoom)
Anton is meticulous in his correction of work and is a very patient, caring and devoted tutor. I highly recommend Anton as a tutor in particular for preparing for the CELI exams (Certificato di Conoscenza della Lingua Italiana)
Anton is a wonderful teacher. His lessons are always well prepared and lots of fun. He uses many teaching techniques which are informative, effective and engaging. He is highly reccommended to anyone who would like to learn Italian.
I took preparation lessons for the Italian citizenship exam with Antonio. As a teacher he manages to squeeze the most out of every lesson and his style with me focused on identifying weaknesses and working through them. I felt that I greatly improved with every lesson. Talking with confidence improved as Antonio makes you feel comfortable throughout the lessons. With his help I passed my exam. Grazie mille.
Anton is one of those special teachers that is able to really engage with his students. He is extremely knowledgeable and is able to make learning Italian fun and interesting. Last year he helped me prepare and pass the CILS A1 exam, and this year I will seek his expert guidance in preparation for the CILS A2 exam. If you want to take your Italian learning to the next level, I highly recommend Anton.
When giving feedback for Antonio I really have to go to the beginning of my Italian lessons with him. I went to see him about my grammar and writing because although my oral was fine, the writing and grammar was lacking. We started on campus teaching and then moved to zoom meeting when it wasn’t possible. I have to say the transition was smooth and Antonio was still able to help me with my grammar and writing even when on zoom. Before the coming oral exam we spent a couple of lessons refining my oral and that was all I needed because seeming the lessons were so structured it was easy to keep on top of things and keep on track. I found those couple of lessons preparing for the oral very helpful and also the previous lessons helping my grammar and writing most useful. Antonio is a great teacher and did a superb job transitioning into online learning.
Anton is a very dedicated teacher, he has a happy and friendly disposition.
His Italian lessons were well prepared and interesting, he was always punctual.
Anton is an excellent teacher. He is always well prepared and his classes are fun and engaging. Many interesting topics were discussed and so my conversation skills have improved a great deal as has my confidence in speaking the language. His exercises in grammar made it easier to understand and we practised them in general conversation. Classes were never boring. Anton is a dedicated teacher, highly recommended.
Anton is an excellent teacher. He has guided our group from absolute beginners in Italian, through to a more advanced level over 1 year, even during the long Melbourne lockdown, when we did all our lessons online. We would still be learning Italian in his class now if he was still here. Highly recommended!
I needed an Italian tutor to undertake an Italian Citizenship Language exam. I had no previous Italian language skills, and commenced my studies with Anton for eight months. He understood my requirements and adapted my classes to my needs and worked on elevating my weaknesses. We started with the very basics, and then gradually progressed to general conversation level Italian then worked towards practice exams. He was very dedicated to helping me achieve my goals and was also very balanced and flexible with his approach. I passed the exam, which required a demonstration of intermediate Italian and was NOT easy.
I have had Antonio as my Italian teacher here in Melbourne Australia for more than five years. He makes our Italian classes enjoyable and thoughtful despite the huge differences in the language abilities within the class. Learning a new language is a huge challenge for older folk like myself and Antonio’s relaxed style of teaching gives you the confidence to move into conversation without getting too bogged down on grammatical issues.
Anton is very approachable and has great teaching skills. The classes with him were essential to my success in the CILS exam. Highly recommended. :)
Anton taught me in a small group of elementary Italian, mostly via Zoom. He is a great teacher, strongly motivated by his love of the Italian language and teaching. He encourages conversation (no matter how rudimentary) while also covering some grammar and a high level of listening comprehension using group exchange. He was generous with his knowledge and time. Highly recommend.
Professionalism. Kindness. Friendliness. Antonio is a fabulous teacher that makes even the most difficult topic look easy. I was impressed by the way in which he uses the maieutics to teach Italian. Absolutely recommended!
I was a teacher for over 40 years and have recently retired as a Principal after 15 years. Anton was my tutor for learning Italian for over a year. He is an excellent teacher. He paces his lessons to suit the needs of his students, making lessons interesting and engaging. He understands the different styles of learners and caters for these in his planning. He is able to adapt lessons according to each student’s needs making them targeted and fun. He is reliable and trustworthy. I would thoroughly recommend him as a great teacher.
I attended intermediate Italian class for a year and found Antonio's Italian lessons to be well structured and tailored to the needs of his students. I found Antonio's way of teaching to be inclusive, interactive and facilitated with good humour. Antonio's classes were well rounded with a focus on the building blocks of Italian grammar as well as dedicated time to conversation and vocabulary. Antonio also incorporates games into his classes to assist in the learning process. Antonio always made himself available to explain concepts and offer guidance around the language. Moreover, Antonio has an impressive knowledge of Italian culture, history and geography which also makes its way into the lessons from time to time. I can confidently say that my Italian has improved markedly throughout the year. I highly recommend Antonio for anybody hoping to learn or improve their Italian.
Antonio has been tutoring our 14-year-old son for 4 years in Italian. Not only has our son improved in his written Italian, but his spoken Italian and comprehension has also soared! Our son’s Italian was put to the test on a trip to Italy where he was able to participate and comprehend most conversations. This is all thanks to Antonio. His dedication and commitment to teaching are second to none. Antonio is punctual and prepared. Antonio’s planning and teaching materials are well suited to our son's needs and complement what our son is studying at school. Antonio recently started tutoring our older son in VCE Italian and already, in only a few months since starting, his marks are improving. We highly recommend Antonio’s Italian tutoring services.
Antonio is honestly one of the best tutors I’ve ever had, and I have had many across all my years of schooling. He is extremely knowledgeable, relaxed and patient with you and genuinely wants to get the best out of his students. His method of teaching is both efficient and engaging and I can confidently say that he has made me improve considerably in all aspects of the Italian language. He was consistently on time for every lesson and was quick and thorough in his response on WhatsApp or email whenever I had questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to achieve a top score in Italian.
Anton is a really skilled teacher. He immediately was able to see my strengths and weaknesses in language learning and focused on what I needed most- relaxing into conversations, listening and confidence. He gave me texts to read and answer in my spare time and always had a record of lessons so he knew what answer sheets to give me next time.
I couldn't recommend him more highly.
