My name is Carlos, I'm 31 years old and I'm from Coimbra.
I graduated in Management in the University of Coimbra. I'm currently working as a salesman, selling telecommunication's products.
I did volunteering work in hostels in London and Malaga. I did it because I love meeting people from other countries with different cultures. So volunteering in hostels was a great way to experience that.
In my free time I like reading, watching movies and series, stand-up comedy, cooking, eating what I cooked (that's the best part!), doing yoga, exercising, trekking in the mountains, swimming, spending time with friends and family. All simple things but that give me a lot of joy.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher I always try to make the process of learning fun and enjoyable to the students.
I customize the lessons depending on what are the goals that the students want to achieve. Because in the end, their goals become my goals.
My lessons & teaching style
I use methods that allows students to learn the language as natives do, using videos, audios and writing-form materials.
That way they learn the language as a whole and don't focus too much on specific parts like grammar or vocabulary. Unless that's their target goal, meaning improving grammar by instance. In that case, and in any other one, the lessons and exercises will be customized to achieve that specific goal.

It's been another excellent and very productive lesson! Carlos is a wonderful teacher - friendly, very patient, flexible and inspiring; I really enjoy every lesson and I feel I am making very good progress: being a complete beginner four months ago I am now capable not only to understand texts at the A2 level, but my listening comprehension skills have improved greatly.

Carlos made the trial class feel comfortable. He quickly adjusted to my language needs. I gained a lot of feedback, practice, and new language knowledge in such a short time! :-)

J'ai pris 2 leçons dans le but d'apprendre quelques bases de portugais avant un voyage. Je suis satisfait, Carlos est très sympa et a bien compris ce que je souhaitais.
