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 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.
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.
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.
I'm from Lisbon and my main language is Portuguese. My work is mainly based on translation, for example: essays, scientific articles or any other help you need with portuguese to English, or English to portuguese. I am objective and practical.
I am very organized and detail oriented about my translations. I have a lot of experience with document translation, bank statements, school records and diplomas. Short due dates are not a problem and I am open for suggestions and questions.
Grammar, frequent conversational classes, frequent exercises, answers to all student questions, lessons on various topics (including topics of your choice, to improve your course or area of work for example) and everything the student needs to learn to speak fluently
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.
I see each student as unique, so I develop a specific lesson plan based on their specific goals. I try to make the lessons as fun and engaging as possible, so that students feel motivated to continue. I’ve tutored students that are children of Portuguese immigrants and want to learn their ancestors’ language. Others that want to retire, do business or just go on vacation to Portugal.
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.
My teaching method depends on the student's goals. What I can offer: .Flexible Hours .Business Classes .Travel Vocabulary .Conversation Classes .Exam prep .All ages and levels (Beginner or Advanced) are welcome .

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 to be very careful with the original idea of the text or sentence so the subject doesn't get lost.
I am a 24 year old brazilian girl living in Boston/Massachusetts. I have a passion for languages and oral communication. I’m currently majoring in education. Portuguese is my primary language, I speak english fluently and I can understand spanish most of the times. Very affordable and negotiable price! Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from a true native.
I was born in São Paulo, Brazil and I have been teaching Portuguese, Spanish and English for 23 years for all levels. I attended the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro -UFRJ- with the degrees of Bachelor of Arts in Portuguese and Spanish and Licenciate in Education.
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 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.
Based on my academic experience, I have a well developed English. I can teach young adults the basics of the Portuguese language. I like to use small articles, songs, and videos to prepare my students. I think its a standard and efficient way to get to know any language.
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.
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.
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.
I am a certified , experienced foreign language with more than 24 years .I have taught multilevel courses in Spanish Portuguese and Hebrew in New York and in the State of Florida .
