Hi! I'm a friendly and patient teacher of Brazilian Portuguese. I love teaching and studying languages. I hold a University degree to teach English and Portuguese and I've been teaching since 2006. My classes are flexible and I'll be happy to adapt it to your needs.
I have a degree in Languages and Literature (Portuguese and English studies) and post-graduation in Translation (English-Portuguese).
I have been teaching English in Brazil since 2006 and Portuguese as a foreign Language since 2010.
My online teaching experience started in 2010 and since then I helped many students to become fluent and even helped them with hints when travelling to Brazil.
I've taken a training course to help students prepare to Celpe-Bras.
I like to prepare the lessons according to what the student need. So please when you book a lesson with me, send me a message telling why you are learning Portuguese and what you know about the language. I prepare the classes based on three textbooks.
I like to make the student speak in the target language since the first class and for that I mix grammar and structure exercises, flashcards and open topics for free conversation.
I also enjoy talking about my country, so if you want to know about Brazil, you can ask me.
Great lesson, very intuitive learning
Just completed my first lesson with Luciana and I am very happy with the result. Professora Luciana has the training and experience to help me get my Portuguese where I want it to be: fluent written and spoken.
Great teacher, very patient with me and pleasant. Really nice to learn with her.
Good lesson, Luciana instictively gauged my level of comprehension and tailored the lesson suit my needs.
