I am bilingual, French/ Portuguese. I have completed my degree at the University of Coimbra, one of the best in Portugal.
I'm a communicative person, who likes to meet new people. I love to travel, and whenever I do I try my best to get to know the local community and the local area, because that's the only way to get to know the reality of each country. I've already volunteered in Africa, with my 12-year-old daughter, and the last trip we did together was to India, where I took a yoga course. I love reading and writing, music, beach and simple life. Empathy and respect for others are essential to me: "Don't do to others what you wouldn't want them to do to you".
Me as a Teacher
I am an experienced teacher, I work with children, young people and adults. My goal is to make the student learn enthusiastically, choosing methods and topics that adapt to each student in particular.
My lessons & teaching style
I am a certified teacher, and my teaching method is based mainly on conversation, so that the student learns as much vocabulary as possible, choosing topics of common interest, so that classes are interesting and motivating. I also use some material, such as articles, texts, oral and written exercises, games...
