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.
It's my second lesson, and I'm very pleased with Ledmira's teaching. Thank you!
Thank you for a great lesson! I really enjoyed the first 45 minutes lesson with you :)
Learning with Ledmira is joy. I value that she is correcting my pronunciation and errors in grammar, but not everything at once. This helps me to concentrate on avoiding one or two typical faults without getting frustrated.
The mix of free conversation, oral comprehension and learning grammatical structures by discussing my home work isgreat.
