About the lesson
I tailor my teaching methods to each student as much as possible, working with their individual learning style. I generally prefer to use materials provided by the student's teacher, so I am able to answer any questions the student might have about current class work. An outline of topics for each week is sufficient but if this is not available for any reason I am happy to produce teaching materials myself.
I conduct online lessons through the program Zoom, as this allows for both visual and audible instruction/engagement. Parents may wish to be present or close by during these lessons to keep track of and better understand their child's home learning, and I am happy to facilitate this if requested.

I have not previously conducted formal tutoring lessons for Italian but have tutored in Maths for 3 years. During my high school Italian classes I regularly assisted my peers in understanding set work when my teacher was unavailable (i.e. helping other students), always receiving positive feedback. I hold my school's record for the highest ATAR score in Italian ever achieved, and was taught by a brilliant Italian-Australian teacher who is fluent in the language. I am certain that combining my love for the Italian language and culture with my tutoring experience will produce great results from students.
We have been very fortunate to have Olivia come and tutor my daughter in maths. Olivia explains maths in a way that my daughter understands and makes it easy as well as fun. Tutoring with my daughter the past 12 months, my daughter has improved in such an impressive way that she moved up a maths class, all with Olivia’s encouragement and support. I can’t recommend Olivia enough, she’s certainly amazing.
Olivia has been fabulous with our 13 year old daughter. She has been assisting with maths since the end of October and the improvement has been amazing. My daughter's maths grade following such a short amount of tutoring has really surprised us, she went from a low C to a B. We look forward to 2020 and know that our daughter will continue to improve with Olivia’s help. Olivia is very organised and trustworthy, she is always on time. We would highly recommend Olivia to anyone needing tutoring for their child.

This first lesson generally consists of a discussion on how the work will be presented, what I expect from the student and vice versa, and constructing a lesson/term plan. The time will also be used to familiarise the student (and parent if necessary) with Zoom, determine the student's learning style and how I can best adapt my teaching style to suit this, and assess the student's current skill level. I try to do this in a fun and friendly way so I can start building rapport with the student as well.
