Thanks to everyone who visits my profile!
My name is Ayrton Antunes, and I live in Oporto. I'm a Portuguese man who teaches Portuguese and English around the world. I have many hobbies, including reading, playing videogames, sports, writing and studying languages.
Communicating perfectly is very important. I am a very patient person and want to help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
Me as a Teacher
I can help you with all aspects of Portuguese:
1. Pronunciation and Accent Reduction / Voice Coaching
2. Exam Preparation for all Exams
3. Conversation Practice
4. Business Portuguese
6. Confidence Building
7. Introduction to Portuguese life and culture.
I want to empower your communication skills to the highest level possible. I will be empowering you to work alone outside the class by giving you daily exercises and written tasks to complete.
Together we will decide what you want and need as we get to know each other.
My lessons & teaching style
The lessons are centered around what you need and what we agree upon. I am a very warm and friendly person. Together we can design lessons.
Some people prefer talking, others prefer grammar. I try to make our lessons entertaining and fun. My aim is to take the conversations "higher" so that you can improve your vocabulary in written and verbal expression.
Your evolution during your studies will be remarkable, and I will be encouraging you to speak the best at all times by looking at breathing, intonation and linking and blending your words.

Lessons with Ayrton are always great. A mixture of speaking, listening, vocabulary and grammar. Never boring and very useful. Ayrton is reliable, attentive and focused on my learning. I have enjoyed this lesson, like all the other lessons I have had with him so far.

Another great lesson with Ayrton. We have really been able to cater my lessons to focus on my weaknesses and help me build up my proficiency in the language. The homework has been great and I always feel free to bring up any concerns or questions I might have.

I like how Aryton organizes his classes. There are many different types of learning activities that keep the lessons fresh and make learning easier. He always includes review and enough homework to keep you on track. His schedule is a bit varied so it requires some flexibility but he is good at communicating any changes. I highly recommend him for a well structured and taught classes.
