Olá! Muito prazer.
I'm an artist by day, but at night I turn into a language lover!
I enjoy watching movies, animations, reading books and comics. I also enjoy making my own stories through my art.
I'm an infovore - someone always hungry for learning new things. No topic is too boring for me, there is always something to learn from it.
Me as a Teacher
English: C1 - Japanese: N1 - Portuguese: Nativo de Minas Gerais, uai!
I taught myself both English and Japanese, so I believe anyone can learn a language.
The secret? Do it just a little bit every day. Do things that are fun for you.
As a teacher I will share with you my knowledge, but as a fellow language learner, I will share my experience about learning.
My lessons & teaching style
Skype, Google, italki Classroom, Zoom or Discord are ok.
If you prefer Discord, book for Skype and send me your ID in the message.
During classes, conversation is the main ingredient, using pictures and other media to help when needed.
After class, you will be given homework that I will correct and explain to you. I do my best to make it entertaining!
Some students enjoy learning grammar or pronunciation in more detail. For them I can go way more in-depth if asked.
(Japanese classes are more homework-heavy, as the writing system requires a lot of time to learn)

Great Japanese teacher and very knowledgeable. Says that their English isn't quite native, however I thought they were a native English speaker until they brought it up. As for the lessons, extremely flexible in what I thought was best to review, as well a able to take the lead when I am a bit lost with my progress. They also gave many useful tools and resources to aid my learning. You can tell they have a wealth of experience learning Japanese and other languages, as well as other people who have taken different routes; they are open minded towards the fact each person may have their own best way to learn, which is uncommon in traditional schooling.

There was some background noise, but it was manageable.
