About Me

***NOVEMBER 9TH 2022 - UPDATED SCHEDULE ***

Hi, I'm Gordon and I have 43 years. No, wait, I don't have 43 years. I am 43 years old.

I have taught over 3000 hours of English classes to people that speak Portuguese, so I understand all your mistakes and why you make them. I can show you tips and strategies to help correct them quickly, easily and permanently.

I have also taught lots of students from Spain, Uruguay, France, Turkey, Poland, Russia, Italy and many others.

I teach whatever my students would like to learn but usually we focus on conversation.

You speak about whatever you are interested in, topics such as family, hobbies, sport, movies, the news, gossip, or even Business English situations, specific situations at work, Technical English, job interview preparation etc. I take notes and then we spend the last 15/20 minutes correcting mistakes and doing any important grammar that comes from the conversation.

I can teach students from anywhere in the world but I am particularly suited to people that speak Portuguese and Spanish. I taught English in Uruguay for 7 months and in Brazil for 3.5 years.

So arrange your free 30-minute class and I hope that I can be the best English teacher you have ever had.
