Personal Description:

I recently finished a PhD in Portuguese at the University of Cambridge, and have extensive tutoring experience.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching online provides a great opportunity to make lessons really engaging and productive by using visuals, sound and interactivity. I use the internet to teach Maths, English and foreign languages to students aged from 6 to 60+.

I love teaching - helping my students improve, and making sure it's as fun and interesting as possible for them. As well as tutoring, I lecture, supervise and mark exams at the University of Cambridge.

I'm a published educational author:
- in 2017 I published 'Learn English: Improving Spoken English Book 1' (available on Amazon)
- in 2016 I co-wrote a learning resource for Oxbridge applicants to Modern and Medieval Languages (HE+: 'Saudade: that untranslatable feeling')
- in 2011 I wrote the script and directed the recording for an educational Portuguese DVD about Fair Trade, still being used in Portuguese schools today ('Vidas e Dúvidas no Mundo do Chocolate')

Teaching Approach:

I believe in making lessons fun and the language learned relevant to the individual students' needs. Practical use of the target language is central from the start, making it a real tool for communication, which is great for overcoming initial shyness. Alongside this practical approach, I help you become comfortable with grammar topics so that you can use them as the building blocks of confident, fluid communication.
