I teach all levels of Brazilian Portuguese and Lusophone Cultures, including Portuguese-speaking African countries. My teaching enhances the communicative abilities of the student in all competencies: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. I also use culturally and socially immersive materials and activities where students can experience Portuguese in an authentic context.
I use different techniques since as an Educator, I have studied a large array of teaching methodologies. However, I do believe in making my classes fun and interesting, so I incorporate music, songs, games, stories, videos, books, cartoons, etc.
Every student is unique. Each and every student has a different approach to learning. I base my teaching on the needs of my students. I can teach you the basics of this language, including pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar in a few months. If you have travel plans, you will feel comfortable traveling to a Portuguese speaking country.
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.
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.
We can use websites, books, videos, and songs to help with your reading skills as well as your listening skills. If you prefer, I can help you with phrases if you want to travel to Brazil for vacation, if you need to practice for a business presentation or if you are currently studying Portuguese in school. I will happily help you with writing and editing any essays or documents that you have.
I have a Master degree in Language Arts (Translation Studies) from the University of Edinburgh and an undergrad from a University in Brazil (FURB) Teaching English and Portuguese in High School. My language classes are taught from a context. I do not focus on grammar, unless asked by student.

Busco deixar o aluno confortável, para que possa perguntar à vontade. Ajudo o aluno com base no seu objetivo a ser alcançado, sempre o motivando a dar o máximo de si. Aulas dinâmicas e interativas, onde utilizo métodos baseados na Programação Neurolinguística. Sou muito claro quando ensino algum aluno, pois já estive na mesma posição.
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.
The main goal is to cover the basics of Brazilian Grammar and to improve the students vocabulary at each class. After the background is covered we keep advanced conversation classes to get deeper into the language.
My teaching method is practice and repetitiveness. I believe more you talk more you learn, memorizing words and getting used to hear your voice in a different language.

Upon assessing the student’s needs and level, I prepare a class that combines grammatical rules (with exercises to develop skills) and topic conversations (to correct grammar and improve pronunciation) I also apply reading and comprehension of songs, topic texts and interviews.
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.
I grew up mostly in Brazil but travelling to many other countries as well. In my home, growing up, I was surrounded by both Portuguese and English because my parents are Brazilian and from the US.
Learn Portuguese: basic, intermediate, advanced levels. Practice your accent reduction in classes tailored to your target problems. Acquire a more natural speech pattern, that looks like you are "thinking in Portuguese". We will listen to you speaking for a few minutes and pinpoint your key issues to be worked. And we will improve it. You will see the difference.

My methodology is focused on teaching you to speak as soon as possible using neurolinguistics exercises, lots of conversation, videos, texts, music and news, while I slowly introduce basic concepts of grammar. I will teach you to function autonomously and enjoy your time in Brazil, Portugal, or any other Portuguese-speaking setting.
My method is flexible to the student's needs: I can either provide highly formal, instrumental\professional training to your specific area of business... or just help you get into party shape to kill it during your next Summer trip to Copacabana beach.
I am a linguist; I believe that learning other languages and cultures empowers one and clarifies other perspectives on reality than one's own.
