Sobre mim

Olá! I am a Brazilian Portuguese teacher from Sao Paulo who would like to believe I am a fun person. I have taught for many years and I am absolutely certain I can help you to learn the basics and to be able to have a full successful commnunication in Portuguese about any subjects with you family, friends or for work. I can guarantee you are going to enjoy my classes and my visual resources that make our lessons more well-structured and dynamic.

I love learning more about my students because I understand that everyone learns in a different way. My thesis in university was based on Different Methods and Approaches in Language Learning and Teaching. For this reason, I use my authentic visual communicative resources to guide people in achieving their language goals, always considering what needs to be updated to their needs.

I am quite proud of the work I do and of how much my students say they enjoy it. My students and I run sporadic direct and indirect course review and feedback to guarantee they are on the right path, with the right approach, advancing and enjoying the lessons.

Let me know if you have any special requests for our sessions íncluding time slot) and I will try my best to help you. Get in contact with me! :)

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Teaching Portuguese and English and I have been teaching for over 17 years. I use my own well-structured material for a full course that goes from total beginners to advanced speakers. This resource I create is shared with my students on a second screen during our lessons .

What my lessons include:
> Warm-up activity
> Speaking, listening, reading and writing
> Dynamic Visual-Communicative material

I have worked with students from all ages and various countries, using a communicative and visual approach. My lessons are fun and student focused. I use Power Point presentations with games, quizzes, audio, images and video activities to allow sessions to be more dynamic and I will adapt the material for the student’s needs.

I love my job, and my main objective is to facilitate language learning in a fun and dynamic way.

Attendance Policy: If student is running late, I will agree to wait for the total of 15 minutes. Cancellation should be made using website's tools.
