I am a Portuguese and English teacher specializing in individual students or small groups in order to address specific needs. The objective is to provide a strong foundation that will allow students to progress favorably.
Having taught in Portugal and China, I am aware of the cultural component that has to accompany the study of a language. Therefore, my teaching involves several components - language, linguistics, culture, history, literature -, depending on the students' needs. To add to the study of writing, I encourage speaking as a way to consolidate knowledge.
I privilege a strategy that connects knowledge to the real world, instead of approaching any aspect abstractly. Real life examples make learning easier and more entertaining.
