About Waleska


Bio

I am a native speaker of Portuguese from Brazil. I've lived in the US for about 7 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 also have a degree in Modern Languages and Literature, majoring in Portuguese & English from the Federal University of Rio Grande...

I am a native speaker of Portuguese from Brazil. I've lived in the US for about 7 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 also have a degree in Modern Languages and Literature, majoring in Portuguese & English from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre - Brasil.

I can easily adapt a lesson for your needs and goals, whether you need Portuguese for tourism, work, exchange programs, or even doing missionary work in Brasil. And of course, if you are married or related to a Brazilian in anyway and you want to have a better communication with their family in Brasil, I can help you with that, too! :)

My lessons will cover speaking, reading, listening, and writing.
I can use a variety of textbooks as a base, according to your goals and needs. If you just want to work only on your oral communication, we can practice conversation and I can prepare lessons for what you need to improve.

I also have experience in training students for the OPI (Oral Proficiency Interview).

I have been teaching English for Brazilians in Nashville as well. Since I am Brazilian, 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 in creative ways. I look forward to the opportunity to serve you!

Thank you/Obrigada

Waleska

Waleska makes learning Portuguese fun!

Waleska has helped me tremendously with my confidence in speaking Portuguese. In addition, right now she is teaching me to conjugate verbs, which is helping me in all aspects of the language.

Patient and Knowledgable

Waleska has been a wonderful tutor to have this summer. She always sent some material to look over beforehand and would include notes about how native Portuguese speakers might say something during lessons.

An Excellent Teacher

I am just starting with Waleska. She has been easy to contact and responsive to my questions. We are already learning to have a conversation in English.

Very Good! / Muito bem!

Waleska and I had a super great lesson. The speed was to my tempo and we it was real learning. You don't find a lot of good matches when it come to teachers all the time but Waleska focuses on my goals as a learner and I think that's super. Bottom line she is great and I wouldn't trade her for anyone! I'll be continuing lessons as long as I can.

Strongly recommend Waleska R. for Portuguese lessons

In my first lesson with Waleska, she put me immediately at ease--there was no pressure to be perfect. We used the Bem-Vindo textbook as a guide and began with the page on greetings. We took turns saying the various greetings. Then we reviewed a short passage line by line, first listening to the line and then repeating the line for pronunciation. We reviewed three verbs--ser, ter and estar--and used the present tense of the verbs in sentences. The hour flew by. Waleska gave me some homework pages to complete for next week. Throughout the lesson, Waleska both said the words and typed them so that I could see them visually. I highly recommend her based on this first lesson.
