Hi! I’m Diego, thank you for visiting my profile! 🙂
Ready to rock your fluency and speak like a native? 🇺🇸
👉 Note: I do NOT teach kids. Please, read the "Important" notes at the bottom!
I'm from Richmond VA, USA, and I’m currently living in Brazil. I have two native languages: American English and Brazilian Portuguese. I'm a Web Developer who's studying Data Science 👨💻
Also, I am a geoscientist pursuing my PhD in Geosciences, but I’ve been teaching languages for almost 10 years, both English and Portuguese, offline and online. 👨🏫
Me as a Teacher
I hold a TESOL certificate and I have experience in teaching children and adults, from beginners to high-advanced students and from simple talks to professional business English/Portuguese or test preparations.
As a language lover and learner myself, I completely understand how hard the process may be, so don’t worry about it, I am patient and encouraging with my students, I challenge them to be creative and not to be afraid of making mistakes.
My lessons & teaching style
My classes are usually focused on conversation on a wide variety of topics, aiming to rock your fluency and make you speak like a native speaker! Although if you need to emphasize any specific matter like interviews, tests preparation, grammar or writing, let me know and we can work on it.
IMPORTANT❗ > If you're not able to attend the class for any reason, just let me know it previously and we can reschedule it. But keep in mind that if you do not attend the class without prior warning, rescheduling is no longer possible, so please be careful❗
Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to meeting you! 🙂

On one hand, Diego is humorous and positive. On the other hand, he can easily discuss about rather serious topics, and ready to listen. So, I think to continue our lessons!
