Personal Description:

I am a professional teacher with a BA in Teaching Portuguese and English from Universidade Metodista de Sāo Paulo and a Teaching Knowledge Test Certificate awarded by the University of Cambridge.

I have been teaching for over 10 years and I have worked with students from 4 to 72 years old, teaching both on-line and in-person and I have been a second language learner as well, so I know how students feel about the whole learning process.

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! :)

Tutoring Approach:

I use Communicative and Natural approaches, my lessons are 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 Power Point presentation with a variety of exercises (images, videos, music, anything that can help you advance in the language). This Power Point presentation may be sent to you after the session, allowing you to have some extra practice whenever you want to, if it is of your interest.
