I'm originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but I live in Ireland. I'm a qualified TEFL teacher and I also teach Portuguese to foreigners. I'm a very friendly, extrovert and dedicated person. I love travelling, cooking, being in contact with nature, meeting new people and organizing parties. I've been teaching English and Portuguese as a foreign language for over 10 years, with experience teaching all levels, ages and nationalities. In 2011 me and my husband opened our own language school in Brazil and had a great success in the local community. This year we've decided to move to Ireland and start teaching online, as we believe to be the future of education. I hold several teaching certifications, including a Cambridge University CELTA. I've lived and taught languages in different countries, including the United States, New Zealand, Ireland and Brazil. I prepare my lessons based on students' needs, interests and levels to suit each individual, being both enjoyable and efficient. In the regular course I use communicative approach to teach both English and Portuguese. In this method students learn the four skills which are the pillars of all languages: listening, reading, speaking and writing. I usually use a solid course book as a base and complementary material such as videos, presentations, songs, articles and others. The material is included in the price of the classes and is usually sent by e-mail or presented during the lessons. I also offer tailored classes, so if you're looking to practice a specific skill such as conversation, slangs, error correction, or business vocabulary, I can also provide these classes on demand. My classes are always very practical, dynamic and student centred, meaning that I won't be doing all the talking, YOU WILL. The only way to master something is by learning, practicing and using it in a meaningful way, and that's what we'll be doing in our classes.
