My name is Duarte, I was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, I'm 30 years old and I live in Madrid, Spain. I've been teaching Portuguese for a year now. I first started as a English (ESL) teacher after getting my CELTA certificate in March 2019 but eventually found a job as a Portuguese teacher at a school called Iberika, in Berlin (I left Berlin 2 weeks ago). There I taught intensive courses to small groups and also gave One-to-One lessons, to both beginner and intermediate levels. In terms of teaching style, I'm a very relaxed teacher and I like to make my students talk as much as possible, while trying to make sure they're also relaxed enough to learn, enjoy the lessons and gain confidence. I always try to adapt my lesson to the student's personality, considering topics or skills (reading, listening, speaking and writing) that he/she might like/need improvement on and the student's strengths and weaknesses.
