My name is Joana and I am 26 years old. I have Portuguese and American nationality and I speak fluently both languages. I have been living in Portugual in the past years where I studied Social Work (Bachelor´s Degree) and Social Intervention (Master´s Degree). In the meanwhile, I studied Drama for a year. So, yes, I am a pretty dynamic and enthusiastic person and I believe in different methods of learning. Relying on the student´s knowledge of the Portuguese language, my goal is to teach it through conversation, role plays of different situations and other methods that might come up depending on the student´s will and relation we build. The arrangement and structure of the lessons shall be decided with the students depending on what he/she knows.
I have worked as a Drama Teacher in 3 different schools so I am used to planning, organizing and achieving goals. I have also worked with Special Needs Students. I´m used to translating and reviewing Portuguese to English and English to Portuguese: articles, essays, auto-biographies, letters. It doesn´t matter your age, I can teach you Portuguese. I´m an outgoing and open minded person, but also responsible, serious and punctual.
You won´t regret it, I´m pretty pretty sure!
