Since I was a little girl I was found of languages and of teaching. My father used to be a great Latin teacher as well as a principal and I sure took after him. I speak 5 languages (Portuguese, my native language; English, French, Italian and Spanish) so far (cause I intend to learn Hebrew pretty soon) and I am also an eager reader and writer. I really enjoy passing on to my students everything I know according to their levels and needs and I have incorporated to my teaching skills plenty techniques in order to enhance their learning process focusing in accuracy and fluency.
Besides my passion for teaching, I graduated in Law and I have much experience as a professional singer too.
My goal is to make it easy for my students to reach their goals!
I am an evangelist at the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God.
Over 20 years teaching in companies, at private schools and tutoring.
I am a multilingual teacher and have a passion for reading and writing.
I am skilled and gifted for teaching and very committed in making my students to improve their accuracy and fluency and lead them to reach their goals and solve their doubts in a pleasant and dynamic way.
I'll make it easy for you!
I started learning French at the age of 12, and I graduated in Grammar and French Civilization after 9 years of studies. I grew up surrounded by French friends and professors since I have a passion for the language and the history, especially for Montesquieu, the greatest French philosopher and writer, in my opinion, since I graduated in Law.
Teaching, reading and writing in French is one of my greatest pleasures in life, and all my students benefit from this passion and positive environment while in class with me because learning French turns to become a joy rather than just a necessity.
Vive la France!
As a languages teacher (Portuguese, English, French, Italian and Spanish) there's no way I would not love grammar, because whenever we understand and apply the grammar rules regardless the language or idiom, we reach accuracy and, therefore, fluency.
That's what I pass on to my students so that they will be confident by solving their doubts, hence they will also be willing to learn more and more once everything becomes more clear and easy with each class.
Loving my mother tongue caused me to love other languages, too. Reading and writing in Portuguese made me seek for other poems and other songs in other languages and idioms. As I love people from all races, beliefs and backgrounds, I wish I could communicate with them all in my native language as well.
I have over 15 years experience teaching Portuguese to foreigners and I simply love what I do.
I am an eager reader and I am a writer.
I enjoy texts marked by intellectual depth or insight, and I love to discuss them with my students.
Once a wise man said: "Thinking is free," which means we are not charged whenever we give a thought of something.
That's what I do in class: make my students think, interpret and explain the meaning of what we are reading in order to be precise towards the context.
