I'm a bilingual professional teacher of Portuguese / English for both Brazilians and foreigners.
I've traveled abroad and lived in the US where I attended college in an American university which gave me great cultural flexibility. I also graduated in Public Relations in Rio de Janeiro and have a masters in translation and interpretation.
I have plenty experience within international and enterprise environments as well as in the communication fields. I've taught for great courses that required high performance teachers including Wise Up and Aliança Cultural and online courses such as LiveLingua.
I've been working as a freelancer professional providing language services for many companies and clients:
Translation and Interpretation // Skype Classes // Coaching // Bilingual Consultant
My great experience comes from working directly with clients and companies of different cultures as well as other national and international experiences.
Tools and Professional techniques: the communicative approach in real life situations has been proven to be the best way of learning and internalizing a language.
I acquired different methods in each course I taught through tough training: communication, linguistic, drills, games etc..
The Communicative Approach mainly aims for spontaneous speech without leaving the grammar and rules aside, but in a dynamic way that makes students learn in less time and truly internalize the language.
Material: I have different books and online material for the students to follow plus many types of exercises.
Very professional, interactive appoach simulating real-life situations with great variability. High degree of customization leveraging my Spanish skills and the synergies with Portuguese
