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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
My methodology is based on real situations and daily routine lived in Brazil. Exercises with examples of common use and conversation training.
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.
Our lessons will be based on your goals, feel free to choose the better way for you!
