Interest topicPets & AnimalsTravelReading
I come from the beautiful city of Curitiba in Brazil. I have a passion for exploring different cultures and languages, and I enjoy travelling to broaden my horizons. Animals hold a special place in my heart, and I'm surrounded by them on a farm, including cats, rabbits, chickens, ducks, and geese. Apart from teaching, I have also authored a book that teaches Brazilian Portuguese. In addition, I run my own translation company, specializing in food-related content. Teaching on Italki allows me to share my knowledge, connect with students from all over the world, and foster meaningful exchanges.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, I believe that my purpose extends beyond simply imparting knowledge. I strive to empower my students by equipping them with the tools and skills they need to navigate the world confidently. My approach to teaching is rooted in creating a supportive and engaging learning environment, where students feel motivated to explore their full potential. I prioritize individualized instruction, tailoring my lessons to meet the unique needs and learning styles of each student. Together, we will embark on a transformative educational journey that goes beyond academic achievements, unlocking new opportunities and inspiring personal growth.
My lessons & teaching style
In my lessons, I strive to create a dynamic and interactive learning experience for my students. I believe in the power of incorporating various teaching resources, such as texts, slides, and textbooks, to cater to different learning styles and preferences. My goal is to provide a well-rounded approach that encompasses listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, allowing students to develop a comprehensive understanding of the Portuguese language. I value the individuality of each student and tailor my lessons to address their specific needs and goals. Together, we will work towards building fluency, confidence, and cultural awareness, while embracing the joy of learning a new language
Yan é o melhor professor de idiomas com quem já pratiquei! E uma pessoa incrível. Ele realmente tem talento para criar um ambiente de prática hospitaleiro e descontraído. Com ele, desde a primeira aula, havia a sensação de que falar português não era nada difícil.
Ele atende perfeitamente às minhas necessidades de aprendizado de idiomas e, se você não tiver certeza de como desenvolver sua prática, ele tem ótimos materiais, é um ótimo ouvinte e fará você falar.
Yan, muito obrigada! Parece que estou conversando com meu melhor amigo. Essa conexão que temos é definitivamente mais do que apenas aulas de português. Abraços, amigo do meu coração!

Yan is an excellent teacher. He makes his own materials for his classes and provides a well-structured path to learning Portuguese! I couldn’t recommend him enough! Lots of laughs, fun, and learning.

Great lesson as always. Corrected all my mistakes and explained lots of grammar to me when our conversation naturally found errors. He finished the class with his plan and materials to get me from A1/2 to B2 before I start my job. Can’t recommend him enough
