I was born in the state of São Paulo in Brazil and I´ve been living and teaching in London for the past two years. I am interested in literature, cinema, travelling and like most Brazilian people I love dancing! I have been teaching Portuguese for more than fifteen years and I enjoy it very much.
I graduated in Language and Literature (Portuguese and English) at the Universidade do Vale do Paraiba in 1991. I taught in schools, companies, privately, online and on the phone in Brazil. Nowadays I am working for two schools in central London. I have experience in teaching business people, professionals and students of all ages and nationalities.
I teach students from beginner to advanced levels according to their needs, either business,travel or just for personal matters. I use text and exercise books and audio material. From the initial lessons I encourage the students to speak in Portuguese, avoiding translation and thereby improving their communication skills as they progress.
Ledmira was a recommendation from a friend. And what a recommendation it was. Patient (especially with my pronunciation), thorough and clear, Ledmira is a fantastic teacher. I enjoy our classes as she really does encourage you in all aspects.
Irregular verb exercise was extremely helpful
