Start slowly, separate hands and with metronome and gradually work to increasing your speed, putting your hands together and removing the metronome. Focus on one of these aspects at a time. Practise without pedal so that you can hear your mistakes clearly. Focus on getting your hands used to the "shape" of a passage before mastering speed and agility. For example, rehearse light arpeggio-like passages by firmly playing them as solid chords. Rehearse scale-like passages by playing the scale in that key over and over again, up and down. Ask your piano teacher for specific advice on how to rehearse certain sections that you're still struggling with.
