About me

Hello all!

My name is Alana, I'm 26 years old and have been in Language Education for over 5 years now. Born in the U.S., I'm a native English speaker and have been living in Brazil since the age of 10 and have also gained fluency in Brazilian Portuguese. I have had a knack and passion for languages since the age of 13, always enjoying the opportunities to teach or help people that were interested in either English or Portuguese. Through this experience, I've had that chance to come in touch with other languages, such as Spanish and Romanian, and learn some basics.

Qualifications & Experience

I am fluent in both English and Portuguese.

I am studying a Portuguese/English Letters course with the intention of adding up to my education in the area. I also have an ECPE proficiency certificate and plan on applying for a proficiency certificate in the Portuguese language. My goal is to continue studying in the area of linguistics and language teaching.

Teaching Approach

Throughout my ESL career, I have mainly used the Communicative Approach, and believe that it is a very effective way of learning.

I first like to get to the know the student and, if they are looking to resolve issues with the language, ask, literally ask, what they may feel they find hard for them, whether it may be grammar rules or pronunciation or simple word definition and context, so that they can analyse themselves and what they consider easy or hard for their comprehension.

I offer English classes for whatever reasons a student may have interest:

- Business English

- Travel English

- Proficiency Certificates

-Basic to advanced grammar, pronunciation and conversational skills, and reading and writing skills.

About me

Olá, meu nome é Alana e esse ano farei 26 anos.

Nasci nos EUA, de mãe americana e pai brasileiro, onde morei até fazer 10 anos. Como havia família no Brasil, viajavamos de vez em quando para visitá-los. Em 2002 viemos morar defintivamente no estado de São Paulo, e moro aqui desde então.

Conclui meus estudos aqui no Brasil, em Português, e dei início ao curso de licenciatura em Letras.

Vim ao Brasil sabendo pouquíssimas palavras em Português, não passava de um ''Oi, como vai'', então de início tive muita dificuldade em me comunicar e aprender o que se passava na escola. Com o tempo de 6 meses, imergida naquela situação, aprendi um Português fluente o suficiente para sobreviver.

Hoje, com 16 anos de contato, sou fluente e ninguém acredita quando digo que não sou brasileira.

Qualifications & Experience

Morando desde os 10 anos no Brasil, adquiri fluencia na língua Portguesa, me formei do Colegial aqui e comecei a cursar Letras - Portguês/Inglês. Me preocupo em me expressar corretamente em Português, tanto na escrita, quanto na fala. Quero oferecer o meu conhecimento, adquirida como estrangeira, a outros que querem aprender a se comunicar de forma coerente na língua.

Teaching Approach

Ofereço aulas de gramática básica, Português para turismo, e aulas de conversação para quem já tem conhecimento mas quer desenvolver sua pronúnica e fluencia.

I had a great class with Alana today! I could learn about pronunciation and had lots of opportunities to practice the different sounds of Portuguese. She prepared fun and organized class material and I'm glad I chose her as my tutor.
