About Me

Dear Students,

My podcast: Brasileiríssimo

Olá! My name is Rafael, and I have been working as a Portuguese second language instructor for eleven years. I consider myself easy to work with, organized, and always ready to support my students.
Fortunately, I have vast pedagogical experience with all levels of proficiency in Portuguese, as well as experience preparing students for the Portuguese proficiency exam, Celpe-Bras.
All this experience has helped me grow as a teacher and as a person. I really hope to contribute to your language improvement in the best way possible so that you can continue this amazing journey which is learning my native language.
During these years I have improved my skills by teaching many international students including children, teenagers, and adults from different age groups. I use various techniques in my classes based one the student as students have different backgrounds and needs. I have experience teaching international banking professionals, American, European and Japanese multinational executives as well as several professionals from the US and Australians on diplomatic mission in Brazil.
My methodology is based on the Communicative and Usage Based Approaches which aims to use communication as the major point in order to address grammar, lexicon and interpersonal skills necessary to help students of Portuguese as a Second Language acquire fluency.
Usually, the class is split into 3 parts: 1. Review of what was discussed in the previous lesson(s) followed by feedback on assignments, conversation on everyday topics such as, family, friends, routine and news. 2. Small lecture, which approaches grammar and a vocabulary topic and oral practice. 3. Debates and discussions on current topics.
I tailor the class based on the student's specific needs.
