Personal Description:

I am a Brazilian Portuguese teacher from Sao Paulo who would like to believe I am a fun person. I am married to an English man and we have a little daughter. I enjoy crafts, design, meeting people and finding out what brings them joy.

As a professional, I like to find out 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 a bit of peacock when it refers to the resources I create for my Portuguese lessons. I have to say, 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 in the right path, with the right approach, advancing and enjoying the lessons.

I offer Free 30-min Trials for you to get to know me, my resources and my approaches.

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

Teaching Experience:

I am a certified Portuguese teacher from Brazil. I have a Bachelor Degree in Teaching Portuguese and English from Universidade Metodista de Sāo Paulo and a Teaching Knowledge Test Certificate by the University of Cambridge.

I have been teaching for over 17 years and I have worked with students all ages, from China, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Chile, Panama, among others. I teach Brazilian Portuguese on-line. I am fluent in English and have a very good understanding of the Spanish language, so I can help if you get confused with both languages during communication.

Teaching Approach:

I offer online private and group lessons.
My lessons are extremely visual, communicative, fun and student focused. For this reason and because each student is different, on our first meeting the student and I may discuss his/her learning goals and which learning approaches work better for him/her.

In most of our sessions we are going to work with a material I will have prepared in advance, including a PowerPoint presentations with a variety of exercises (images, videos, music, anything that can help you advance in the language).

Lessons include:
> Warm-up activity
> Speaking, listening, reading and writing
> Dynamic Visual-Communicative material
> Online games, flashcards and quizzes
> Teacher notes and homework at the end of every lesson with a copy of the material used during the lesson
> **Contact Detail Removed** Classroom access to over 100+ exercises, games and activities
> WhatsApp Language Exchange Group
> An online group meeting may be offered free of charge with other students who meet online to chat and practice the language. It will depend on teacher’s and students’ availability.

We may use different methods to communicate online. I will be happy to discuss what is best for you.
> Skype
> Zoom
