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.

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.
