About Elisabeta

Hello! I am a Brazilian national with a Master's degree in Portuguese linguistics and extensive teaching experience. I recently moved to DC, after having spent a few years teaching in Lisbon and Rio. I am creative, patient and passionate about language teaching. In Rio de Janeiro, I worked for a private company which specializes in foreign language teaching and provided private classes for professionals of multinational companies, such as L’Oreal Brasil and AkzoNobel. Students had to make rapid progress in order to be able to conduct business in Portuguese. Classes were especially designed to fit each student's objective, with a high number of contact hours per week covering all aspects of the language, including writing, reading, listening, and speaking. Prior to teaching in Rio de Janeiro, I had gained substantial experience teaching exchange students at the University of Lisbon.

Having lived in different countries and learned a number of foreign languages myself, I understand that learning a language is more than just memorizing a number of grammar rules. I therefore try to bring authentic examples of the target language and culture to the classroom with the aim of making the process of learning an enjoyable experience. Having taught students from a wide variety of cultural and linguistic backgrounds, I am experienced at working in a multicultural environment.

My priority is to focus on the students’ objectives and, therefore, I try to set goals together with each individual in order to adapt materials and activities according to their needs, to establish and communicate clear objectives for all learning activities and to develop individual lesson plans for students.

I am currently working for a Brazilian association for culture and education on weekends, but I am free any day during the week.

Please feel free to send me an email or text me about arranging a meeting. We can discuss your needs and options for classes before you have to commit to anything.

Excellent Tutor

Beta is always punctual and has a detailed lesson planned. We work constantly for one hour that incorporates reading, listening, and speaking Portuguese. She expertly assesses my progress and does not expand the lesson beyond comprehension. I am fortunate to have found Beta and I believe that I will reach my desired goal, especially with her style of instruction.
