My name is Carol Finimundi
I'm a Brazilian English tutor
I have lived in the US for almost 4 years, where I studied musical theatre, in LA and NYC
I'm currently living in Brazil
I'm an actress, dancer, singer, English teacher, live streamer, travel lover, content creator and psychology student
Me as a Teacher
I have worked as a teacher in different areas since 2016.
I have been teaching English individually since then, at first with in person classes; and for 2 years, online.
I started teaching musical theatre as a volunteer to kids in a situation of vulnerability.
Then I taught voice lessons individually, where I would help them improve their singing while also teaching them how to sing in English.
And for a semester I also taught tap dance to a group of people of all ages.
I have worked at a bilingual school with 3-4 year old kids in Brazil.
My lessons & teaching style
My classes are practical and fun. I like to align my classes with your objectives and prepare each class according to your development. Most people have a hard time speaking, so I tend to focus on conversation while explaining the grammar when necessary.
Each student is unique and has a different need, and I like to focus on your need and what you bring me other than impose the same curriculum for everyone.
For most advanced students, classes are all in English and I work with a "no translation" fundamental, where we can explain what we are trying to say, other than translating, even if the student is Brazilian.
And I can also assist more advanced students with polishing pronunciation.

Carol's lessons are incredibly fun! My favorite part is how much music she uses to test my listening and help teach new words. I've gotten a much better idea of Brazilian music thanks to her, and I even share it with my friends.
