Detailed Profile in English

About me

My name is Maria-Eugênia. I’m Brazilian. I lived in England for seven years. I love travelling and getting to know different places and cultures. I like cinema very much. I really enjoy teaching which, so far, has been the most gratifying working experiences I have had. I’m also a latent (screen)writer.

Qualifications & Experience

I studied journalism for my BA. I did a Masters in Screewriting in England. I taught Portuguese in a University in England for three years. I have also given Portuguese private tuitions. I have taught students from 17 to 70 years old, who were from a wide variety of backgrounds and who wanted to learn Portuguese for different purposes such as: holiday travelling, business trips, as they had house in Portugal, their spouses’ first language was Portuguese, or academic reasons.

Teaching Approach

I develop the working plan according to the student’s needs.

I teach from total beginners to advanced levels.

Together with a text book, I use other supporting materials in order to complement and strengthen the learning process, having in mind the student's goals and needs.

As language and culture are so deeply interwoven, I try as much as possible to add aspects of Brazilian culture, as well as few aspects of Portuguese culture.

About me

Meu nome é Maria-Eugênia, eu sou brasileira. Morei no Inglaterra por sete anos. Adoro viajar e conhecer lugares e culturas diferentes. Gosto muito de cinema. Adoro lecionar, isso foi uma das experiências mais gratificantes que já tive. Sou também uma escritora e roteirista latente.

Qualifications & Experience

Sou formada em jornalismo. Fiz mestrado de roteiro (ficção) na Inglaterra. Lecionei português numa universidade na Inglaterra por três anos, também dei aulas particulares de português. Lecionei para pessoas entre 17 e 70 anos de idade, tanto para universitários, profissionais de diferentes áreas como também aposentados.

Teaching Approach

Desenvolvo meu plano de trabalho de acordo com as necessidades do aluno.

Ensino alunos desde o nível iniciante ao avançado.

Além de adotar um livro, uso também outros materiais que ajudam a complementar e solidificar o aprendizado do aluno.

Gosto de acrescentar nas aulas aspectos da cultura brasileira (e algumas coisas sobre a portuguesa), uma vez que a língua e a cultura estejam tão intimamente interligadas.
