Hello There! I am Susane. I current live in Chicagoland and I am from Brazil.
I have over 6 years of experience teaching English and Portuguese as second languages to children and adults.
In Brazil, I graduated in CCAA, where I worked with students, who were in different levels and ages, for 5 years. Then, I worked at Red Balloon for 1 year before becoming an attorney.
I used to teach English and Portuguese in an audio-visual method, which means that I use pictures and stories to teach the vocabulary to my student without translating it. That is how children learn their native language and it was how I learned English, but I am pretty open to work with my students with whatever makes sense to them, in their pace.
That said, I also teach grammar rules and we practice them in sentences to enforce my students to memorize them.
I have experience with Toefl, I believe learning a second language can be fun, and I will be glad to help you to become fluent and an expert in Portuguese!

Ola! Eu sou Susane. Atualmente moro em Chicago e sou do Brasil.
Tenho mais de 5 anos de experiencia ensinando ingles e portugues como segunda lingua para criancas e adultos.
No Brasil, me formei no CCAA, onde trabalhei por 5 anos com estudantes que tinham diferentes niveis e idades. Depois, trabalhei na Red Balloon por um ano antes de me tornar advogada.
Estou acostumada a ensinar iingles e portugues em um metodo todo audiovisual, o que significa que uso figuras e historias para ensinar o vocabulario aos meus alunos sem traduzir. Afinal, é assim que as criancas aprendem sua lingua nativa e foi assim que eu aprendi ingles, mas sou bastante flexivel em trabalhar com meus alunos com o que fizer sentido para eles, no ritmo deles.
Dito isto, eu tambem ensino regras gramaticais e as praticamos em sentencas para ajudar meus alunos a memorizar.
Tenho experiencia com o Toefl, acredito que aprender um segundo idioma pode ser divertido, e terei prazer em te ajudar a se tornar fluente e especialista em portugues!

Great teacher

I am very pleased to learn and improve Portuguese with Susane. She is very well organized and very flexible to work on specific topics.

Thierry, 17 lessons with Susane

Excellent.

I especially like the format she's using to teach. Some is a little bit of a leap of faith. But I think I can see how this will work in the long run. Highly recommend

Mike, 3 lessons with Susane

Fun and knowledgeable teacher!

Today we focused on introductions - learning how to talk about myself; my job, my hobbies, etc. I like it that Susane speaks mostly Portuguese and that she is very patient when I do not understand things. It was a great lesson, and I learned a lot.

Gila, 26 lessons with Susane

Susane is knowledgeable and patient

Susane took the time to understand my needs as a student. Her teaching style is very immersive and has already pushed me to learn so much. She speaks very well in both English and Brazilian Portuguese. I recommend her for beginner and experienced speakers alike.
