Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (Journalism)
I have been teaching Portuguese for 10 years. First as part time in 3 schools, and then full time for 5 years. I absolutely love teaching, because it feels good to have a useful purpose. I also love languages and how much it can show about culture.
My classes are casual with intense participation of students. I believe we all should learn while having a good time. I work with a variety of books and magazines and also a lot of conversation. I cover grammar, pronunciation and cultural differences.
I am from Floripa, an island in Southern Brazil. My background is in Journalism, therefore I like to show the difference between proper and colloquial Portuguese. I also explain about different accents and pronunciation since I have worked in radio production.
I have had students that intended to learn for a quick trip and they continued taking classes and were fluent after one year.
Considered one of the best teachers in my school, I was invited to teach Portuguese in a cruise ship to Portugal. I have been teaching Portuguese for 10 years. First as part time in 3 schools, and then full time for 5 years. I absolutely love teaching, because it feels good to have a useful purpose.

I offer group (+3pp) packages. 8 classes of 1hr for $200.
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.
