Firstly, I try to understand the students' needs in order to apply the appropriate methodologies. I seek, for example, to work with videos of international television programs (interviews, news programs, etc.) so that the student understands oral speech in a more realistic way.
My teaching methodology consists of repeating and persevering. By repeating the student get to expand the "hard drive" of their minds creating a new space for that new language. Saying a sentence many times is the best way to memorize. The sentence should be shifted to positive, negative, past and future making easier for the student to understand the language structure.
I don't follow specific materials, and I don't use a single method. I base my classes on each student's needs, approaching each topic as necessary. Based on your level, I'll adapt our classes so you can make the best of them.
My teaching methods are defined based on some elements: student age, goal of learning Portuguese, available time, previous level of knowledge of the language and personal learning profile. I base my classes on topics of interest to the student and the personal specificities of each one, defining an objective, flexible and interesting teaching program.
My teaching method focus on pronunciation, which I believe is one of the most important parts of learning a new language. I want to make my student confident to speak Portuguese wherever they are.
I am extremely flexible on what we can do, at our first meeting we discuss our goals and your current Portuguese level to determine a strategy that works for you. Typically, in the lessons, materials provided by free by the Brazilian Government and the UN are used as guidelines, and are supported by additional support materials to tackle grammar, speaking, reading, writing and listening.
The classes will be customized according to the needs of each student. At first I will analyze the student's portuguese level and his objective studying this language. After that, I will elaborate the classes according to your needs.
I believe each student has a particular way of learning, to learn a new language is a complex and amazing process. Is that why I develop an individual analysis about the individual necessity of my students. In our my classes I stimulate the conversation (pronunciation) and to learn the grammar.
As most of my students aim to learn a more everyday Portuguese, I like to work with examples and practical use of the language. In my opinion, the best way to make a lesson is by exploring the student's interests. Even native speakers spend all their lives improving their language skills, so I focus on what is important to that student's specific needs, while not forgetting a more general approach.
I am a native Portuguese speaker, living in The Woodlands, TX. I teach Portuguese as foreign language for adults and kids, all levels - beginners, intermediate, advanced - creating schedules for my students, set learning objectives and ensure they are met.
First, I will introduce you to simple concepts and structure, including the concept of "communicative competence" and its components; teaching contexts; current research on teaching second language skills; and techniques.
First I investigate my student's learning styles. I base my lessons on the interests and abilities they already have. Every topic we study comes with a context and language is revealed little by little.
My teaching method change from student to student due to the fact that every person has a different type of learning technique. I try to adept my methodology accordingly to the student needs. Portuguese is my native language so I feel completely comfortable to help with any skill you have a problem.
When i was an English teacher I used to apply the Callan method as a good tool. I never taught my native language Portuguese to anyone so, sincerely, I don't have a method to teach it. But with my native knowledge, I could improve the way I give lessons while I get closer to my student.
I understand each person is a different individual who has different perceptions from the same subject – so a unique learning process. Also, I guarantee my student will have lessons directed to his/her reality and demands, stimulating my student respecting his/ her responds.
I base my classes on movies, shows, and conversations about several topics. I believe that conversation is the best way to learn a language quicker. Also, movies and shows help you speak like a citizen would speak. I love what I do and feel free to ask me any questions.
My teaching method is simple. I am here to talk to you and teach you the way that Brazilian people talk to each other.
My methodology is based on real situations and daily routine lived in Brazil. Exercises with examples of common use and conversation training.
In Rio de Janeiro lower, middle school classes. In USA, college and graduate school studies. International travels and extensive work experience in Rio de Janeiro for a national retail organization. Have labor, organizational and personnel experiences throughout Brazil during the 1960's.
I have a bachelors degree in psychology, and worked as a pediatric clinical psychologist in Brazil. Currently I am a Pre-Medical student getting ready to apply to medical school. Because I have a passion for science, I would love to be able to help you with that, plus also helping those wanting to learn Portuguese language.
I like understanding what is the best way my student can learn - it can vary from person to person, so then we can plan the classes in a creative and fun way, but vey professional. Because of that, I base my approaches on a mixture of methods so I can meet different levels and needs.
Our lessons will be based on your goals, feel free to choose the better way for you!

I approach each topic depending on the level of the student trying to see what each can accomplish individually or in groups
Having taught a lot of English speaking students I know what the biggest struggles are and I have tactics that will help them understand the language in a simpler way. Using real-life examples is a great way that I have found to make it easier for the student to relate and comprehend the language. I will always talk to my student and understand what works the best for them.
