I am Brazilian and a professional teacher of Portuguese language and literature. I specialise in online teaching because of the flexibility it provides, and because I strongly believe it is the future of language learning!
I've been teaching Portuguese to foreigners since 2010. I'm currently studying Literature (German, Russian, French and Brazilian).
I can help you with pronunciation, grammar, writing, as well as speaking. I can also help you to learn about Brazilian culture and prepare you for tests like CELPE-BRAS.

Private Teacher Self Employed 2009 - present
I've been working as a Private Teacher since 2009 helping students to improve their Portuguese skills (Writing / Reading / Speaking). So far I've worked with students from over 8 countries and with all levels from beginners to advanced speakers. I have also worked in some public schools teaching teenagers and senior citizens.
My students include beginners as well as intermediate and advanced learners, from all over the world - I prepare the lessons according to their individual needs and requirements.
I really like to make my students speak in Portuguese from the very first class. Besides that, I like to talk about Brazilian culture. I usually teach via Skype and Google Hangouts, using additional software such as Scribblar (online whiteboard), Prezi (online presentation tool), Google Documents and voice recording tools.
