italki teacher since Sep 13, 2019
I am passionate about languages, especially Romance languages!
I have studied in France and worked in Guinea and Colombia. All my travels were fundamental to my cultural development and I intend to pass on my experiences to my students.
I am currently improving my English and learning Catalan.
Me as a Teacher
Dedicated teacher of Romance languages (French, Spanish, Italian, Romanian, and Portuguese) with over 10 years of experience.
I have experience in teaching languages at institutes, universities and schools.
I have been an evaluator of international DELF, DALF, TCF and Celpe-Bras certification exams.
My lessons & teaching style
My classes are organized according to the student's needs. I use Google Classroom to organize classes, that is, the student will be able to find on this website all the material used during classes and also extra material.
I use PowerPoint presentations, books and different resources in order to have didactically organized and pleasant classes.

Fernando is a great teacher. His lessons are so engaging time flies incredibly fast and I don't even realize the lesson is over! He's made learning Italian very fun to me! I especially like the fact that he also knows my mother tongue (Romanian) and he always offers examples and comparisons between it and Italian, which I find incredibly useful. The materials he gives out make for good practice at home and I find that I'm progressing quite fast. Thank you for your patience!

Fernando is a fantastic teacher. His lessons are structured around a theme, and are designed to get the student to speak as much as possible. His thoughtful questions always make for an engaging discussion, and his attentive corrections, provided in written format, are helping me to improve my speaking ability. Fernando's command of the grammatical rules in the 4 romance languages I study with him is impressive, as is his ability to easily explain the similarities/differences between these languages.

Fernando came well-prepared with great resources for teaching! He was patient, spoke slowly, and did a great job of allowing me to speak, and then following up with written corrections (including explanations).
It's also wonderful to have a teacher that speaks other languages so that you can "fallback" to something other than your native language, and draw comparisons between the languages.

I really enjoy his lessons since they force me to continue practicing the Portuguese I already know!
