Hello everyone! My name is Anderson. I'm 28 years old and I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. My interests include reading, movies, swimming and of course languages and meeting new people!
I am passionate about languages and foreign cultures and I look forward to helping you enjoy your studies and achieve your goals.
I have a degree in Portuguese and English language and literature.
In 2008 I attended a post graduation course in English simultaneous translation to Portuguese.
In 2009 I went to England to improve my English taking an advanced English course. And I had the opportunity to be with people from all over the world. I visited France and Italy as well.
I have been working as a Portuguese and English teacher since my graduation in 2007 for public schools( high school), private and languages courses. I teach kids, teenagers and adults.
I have some experience teaching Portuguese to people whose first language is English.
During the years 2002 to 2004 I lived and worked side by side with many foreign people, especially North Americans in a volunteer service in the south of Brazil.
Whatever it is you would like to do with your Portuguese / English:
~ going on holiday
~ making new friends
~ speaking to your customers
~ reading poems
~ passing exams
I would be delighted to support you and be your live online tutor.
I believe myself to have a professional and friendly attitude to teaching and convey this well to the students that I teach.
My dedication to language teaching is, and has always been, without doubt one of the driving forces of my career. I find the challenges of cultural exchanges stimulating and pleasurable.
My teaching approach is very much on encouraging you to use your language skills in life conversation. I believe that focusing on verbal communication skills quickly builds your confidence and your enjoyment of the new language.
Lessons can be structured to support a home study programme or I can develop an individual learning programme tailored on your own personal needs.
