About Marcelle

As I said in my profile title, I'm a native Portuguese speaker. I was born and raised in Southern Brazil and language is one of my passions. I am used to helping parents to raise bilingual children and I even had jobs teaching dogs commands both in Portuguese & English. As for grown ups, most of my experiences are helping them with basic language skills due to a last minute business trip.
My tutoring method is tutoring your second (or third, fourth...) language the same way you learned your first. I am not a big fan of translations, I believe they slow you down during a conversation and since you can't literally translate everything into another language, it can get tricky easily. During our tutoring class, I'd like you to forget about all the other languages you speak and have an open mind to receive a new language.

Approved subjects

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.

Portuguese

I was born and raised in Brazil. Portuguese was my favorite subject in school and I have a good knowledge in grammar and colloquial language. I'm able to teach you both or just the one you want.
