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.
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.
I am a very patient, motivated, and enthusiastic teacher and I always adjust my teaching methods to the student's age, needs, and purpose. I never give up on a student and I am sure I can help him/her attain his/her full potential. I believe anyone can learn a new language but consistent repetition and refreshing before, during, and after class is needed.
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.
First thing, we need to build a good vocabulary, using pictures of things, places, people, animals, tech goods to learn how to apply them in a regular conversation, short writing texts and compositions.

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.
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.
