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.
Great lessons. Really helps in fixing my confusion with subjective verb tenses.
It always helps a lot to talk to Ledmira. She also gives me some exercises or literature to improve my written Portuguese. On the whole a good balance of speaking and writing.
Veru organised lesson - I had my trial, without second thought I will continue.
