Why choose me as your tutor for Portuguese??
I love language! Language is fascinating! It’s the way all of us share our thoughts, perceptions, feelings and love for each other. What a wonderful way to express who we are through words with playfulness, meaning or warmth! When I was a little child, I was fascinated by the way big people were able to exchange words...having magical reactions to those sounds. Portuguese is my native language and I have always wanted to express myself in an elegant way. It's a very beautiful language with sophisticated and meaningful words.
About my background... I studied for one year at the master's degree level for International Relations in which I am specialized (360 hours – specialization course). My major is psychology. I also specialized in human excellence. I worked for a Federal Social Bank in Brazil - with International Programs for Urban Development, focused on cities development strategies with the purpose of urban poverty reduction. At that time I was in charge of the creation of the international department for the bank.
With my education and professional experience, and as a natural leader, I facilitate spontaneously the learning process in the groups I am part of – social, family, students, friends, patients, etc. I think a great way to learn Portuguese is applying the assimilating process to the subjects you enjoy the most. For instance, if you enjoy music, let’s use the class to talk about it. If it’s movies, then let’s develop a great dialogue that includes this subject. It’s really important, in my opinion, that the student see him or herself in the situation for real, so the learning process is much more fun and exciting.
I hope you’ll enjoy learning this beautiful language
