About Carla E.

My name is Carla and I'm from Brazil. I've been living in the USA since 2013 and I have a Green Card. I live in Sylmar - CA.

I have a Bachelor degree in Physical Education and in Physical Therapy. I worked as a dance/fitness teacher for a long time, and after having back problems I had to stop working in a Gym. However, I've always loved English and decided to become an English teacher. I worked as an English teacher in Brazil for 9 years with kids, teenagers and adults.

Now that I'm living in the US I'm willing to teach Portuguese as well. I love teaching and had inspired many students in Brazil to love learning English and hope to inspire others to learn Portuguese too. I have never taught Portuguese before but when you love what you do the rest comes with a great attitude, responsibility and good classes.

I can help not native English speakers to improve their skills. I can give classes online too.

I try to be flexible with time and while I do have a 24hr cancellation policy I offer makeup classes.Unfortunately I can't drive and it would be great if the student could come to my house. However, I can manage for my husband to take me to the place if it's necessary and within a range of 10 miles.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you Marissa for your feedback, it helps me a lot to get even better as a teacher. There are good teachers because there are good students. You have been such a great learner and being dedicated and willing to learn even more will make you improve your Portuguese a lot!! I will do my best to make you feel comfortable and confident about speaking Portuguese when you are in Moçambique. If I am a #1 tutor is because you are a #1 student!!!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I used to be an English teacher in Brazil for 8 years teaching for kids, teens, and adults from basic to advanced English.

I have a bachelor's degree in Physical Education and worked as a fitness/dance teacher for 15 years. I can teach rhythms like samba, axe music, jazz dance and street dance. I can also work as a personal trainer to get you in shape. I used to teach kids, teenagers and adults.

Grammar

I used to teach English in Brazil for 8 years and grammar was one of the subjects I had to teach my students. I range from basic to advanced levels.

Portuguese

I'm Brazilian so my mother language is Portuguese and being a teacher I have skills for the job. In Brazil. I was an English teacher. but here in the USA, I can be a Portuguese teacher as well.

Reading

Reading is a very important skill and I can help students on that matter.

Spelling

I can help young students to get more confident with spelling and to get better scores at school.

Vocabulary

There are many fun ways to practice vocabulary and I can help the student to improve his/her skills.

Writing

Writing is one of the 4 skills you need to speak English and as an English teacher, I can help students to become more confident in the subject. Even if the student is American, I can help with that student's difficulties.

Love learning with Carla

Carla has been an incredible tutor for the past few months! She is kind, patient, focused and easy to learn from. Each lesson is structured, focused, challenging but still success-oriented and realistic. She helps so much with pronunciation and learning grammar/conjugations. After only several weeks, I am confident in the base knowledge I have of Portuguese, thanks to Carla. She is also so easy
