About Gisele

I have been teaching Portuguese since 2004. First it was just a side job but it turned out I really like teaching my mother language because I am fascinated by learning languages as well. It feels good to have a useful purpose in helping someone acquiring a new skill. I have a degree in Communications, which makes the ability of communicating really important to me.

In my classes, I talk about different accents, the difference between proper and colloquial Portuguese, pronunciation, Grammar and a lot of conversation because Brazilians love talking to people.
My classes are casual with intense participation of students. I believe we all should learn while having a good time but I also ask for commitment in doing homework and study.
I am from Florianópolis, in Southern Brazil but I have lived in Rio and traveled around the country .

I have had over 300 students from scientists to an Oscar winner.
Considered one of the best teachers in my school, I was invited to teach Portuguese in a cruise ship to Portugal.
