About Waleska

I am a native speaker of Portuguese from Brazil. I've lived in the US for about 6 years. Since then I've been teaching Portuguese, and I've been enjoying it a lot. In Brazil, I taught English for over ten years, so I have a lot of teaching experience. I know Portuguese can be difficult but with the right methodology, patience, and motivation, we can get there.

I have been teaching English for Brazilians in Nashville as well, as a Brazilian English Tutor I have the advantage of clarifying doubts easier as I know how the student thinks and I know what it takes to be fluent in English.

I always try to make the experience of learning as fun and pleasant as possible by being dynamic and combining theory and practice proportionally. I'm looking forward to start teaching.

Thank you/Obrigada

Fun approach to learning.

Walseka has a varied approach that includes not only formal aspects but encourages the use of everyday subjects as class materials, such as news, movies, personal stories, etc. For me, speaking another language is the most difficult hurdle, with her multi-faced approach I have made good progress in the months she has worked with me. And finally to simply state it, I just really enjoyed every sessi
