Hi, I'm Janaina! I have been teaching English as a second language since 2007 - and have been doing so as an internationally certified instructor since 2011 (CELTA). I graduated in Languages and Literature (Portuguese/English), also have a BA in Translation (Portuguese/English) and have also taken part in several workshops/training sessions since then.

Helping students thrive has always been what moves me and inspires me to move on, as well as improving myself professionally. I have already worked with students from a variety of places, such as Brazil, Saudi Arabia, China, Finland, Germany, Japan, France... which has been an amazing and rich experience. Teaching so many different cultures has broadened my horizons and made a better professional, tuned into students different needs and abilities. I believe lessons need to be focused on students needs, in a fun yet effective way, making sure students are provided with enough material and time to absorb the content being presented. Whether you need help with your current English course and/or need a more personal approach to acquiring language for traveling, business, general conversation purposes - feel free to contact me to guide you through this journey.
