Hola, Alô, hello, parents and students seeking a better understanding of English
. My name is Celina F. C
. and I am a Brazilian native and an American citizen. I have a Master's degree in Education with a background in English as a Second Language
from the University of Mary Washington.
My price per hour is currently $35 for summer! Special offer! Two people together in the same session play just $60.
My experience with Spanish comes from a course I took while working for Petrobras in Brazil and many Spanish-Portuguese and Spanish-English translations. I can help students from basic up to the intermediate level (I was recently tested by Berlitz and that is where they placed my Spanish). This would be about high-school Spanish level.
I have taught English as a Second Language
at a nonprofit I worked for during one year in 2012. I currently work for Berlitz language school as a Portuguese instructor. I was trained to teach using the Berlitz language method, and I can say this training has been helping me to better explain and practice structures with my students.
I have been a translator of Portuguese and English for over 30 years now, working for translation companies in Texas, New York and publishers and companies in Brazil. If you need a translation from English or Spanish into Portuguese or from Portuguese into English, contact me. .
While working for WyzAnt I have helped different students to reach their goals, even if their goal is a capstone project for a master's degree. I especially like to use creative methods to help students acquire vocabulary
while having fun, like card games, videos and songs. I really like to use music
, if the students feel like including it in the lessons, to help them increase their vocabulary and understand structures.
My experience teaching religion
comes from being an aide and sub for four years at St. Patrick Catholic Church CCD program, and singing
in the St. Patrick church choir.
Students in Fredericksburg, VA and Stafford, VA are welcome, and also surrounding areas (Locust Grove, King George, Bowling Green etc.). Contact me for available time slots. I currently teach: - English as a second language at the K-12 and adult levels - Reading
(English and Portuguese) also for university projects and capstones - Portuguese for travel and academic purposes - Spanish, Word and PowerPoint
- Religion (Catholic) - k-12 - Brazilian style cooking
- Brazilian culture/history
I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, so please send an e-mail to WyzAnt or a text to my cell 24 hours before the session is scheduled to cancel a class. If you want to have a make-up class I will be happy to provide you with one depending on my schedule.
