Native English Speaker - Adventurer

A Filipina living in Brazil. I was an international flight attendant before I decided to live here! That´s why I can´t wait to meet people from different nationalities again. I may have been to your country! This we shall find out together. I have a background in health sciences since I have a degree in Nursing.
I love being outdoors, finding scrumptious food spots and singing with my ukulele.
I'll be traveling for around 3 months and will resume classes once I have a more predictable schedule 😄🙏 Let's catch up again soon!
Me as a Teacher
I am in the middle of completing my TEFL certification while I teach English privately to total beginners and advanced learners. I LOVE the feeling of being able to share knowledge and motivate my learners with our conversations!
One thing that you may like about me is that I have a calm demeanor and a neutral accent. My students say that they feel comfortable speaking with me because of these reasons. I see them improve and it's the most rewarding feeling.
I have worked in a Waldorf School for little children and I used to volunteer to school-age kids in an afterschool program in my city back home. One thing I am secretly proud of is teaching my neighbor how to ride a bicycle. Haha!
My lessons & teaching style
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner, you´ll definitely be sure to speak at least 50% of the time. I believe this is the most important aspect in learning a language-- Producing it.
I encourage comments and suggestions from my students so that I may deliver exactly what they need.
-To start we will list down daily dialogue you have around you focusing on vocabulary and
-If you are a beginner we will start with simple topics. I will give you time so you can form your thoughts comfortably.
- We will delve deeper into topics that you find most challenging.
- I will be your best cheerleader!

I've been having classes with Amalia for a few months now and she is no doubt the best English teacher ever! She is so down to earth and funny and talktive that I look forward to studying with her everyday. She helps me improve my English in so many ways, but the most important thing is she gives me the boost and the confidence to finally start to talk to people in English in the real world. Also, she is willing to talk about everything that happend in my daily life and listens to me patiently. She helps me to think up the right word that I want to say when I am stuck, refines my grammar, teaches me tons of authentic expressions, and finds the best materials for me. Plus, she is so good at explaining complicated words and expressions in simple words! I learned so much from her. Thank you Amalia❤️

In Amalia's class, you will feel relax, and she is really good at guiding you to express your opinion. And she is always on time. She remember something you mentioned last time. I enjoy chatting with her.

We had a nice conversation, I like how kind and patient Amalia is. The reason I started to take lessons was to practice speaking in English, so I needed a teacher who would ask me questions and make me speak, and Amalia does a great job at that, so I can sincerely recommend her :)

I really enjoyed the lesson.
It was my first time to speak the teacher, but she was very kind and softly, so I relaxed all the time.
I’d like to talk more.
Thank you so much!
