My name is Hugo, I am originally from Rio de Janeiro - Brazil, and I am currently living in Vienna - Austria.
As a native speaker, having done a teaching training course, and with teaching experience, I am able to teach spoken and written Portuguese to a high standard (including for legal purposes). Moreover, having studied and lived in the UK for a while allows me to also teach English.
I'm a very energetic and enthusiastic person, so whatever your goals and objectives are with these wonderful languages, rest assured you'll have a dedicated teacher to create a tailored learning plan to meet your needs.

Teaching methods of Portuguese as a foreign language
From Oct. 2013 to Oct. 2014, I worked as a teaching assistant within the Portuguese and Literature Department of a high school/college in Rio de Janeiro. This teaching and assisting position required good management and organizational skills. Working with the students was a fulfilling experience that allowed me to develop an emphatic approach to individual and group objectives.
From Feb. 2017 to May. 2017, while living in Portugal and doing my postgraduate course, I signed up to teach languages (Portuguese and English) in a voluntary program named "Speak". This brilliant idea allowed students who had a tight budget to still be able to study languages, for free, in a serious and well-organized and structured educational environment.
Moreover, throughout my 5-year Law degree in Rio, I had one-to-one tutoring with students who were seeking help with English or just wanted to have conversation lessons to practice their language skills. Also, before recently moving to Austria, I was teaching Portuguese in the UK for students with very distinct goals, such as passing A-Level Portuguese exams and preparing to travel to Brazil.
In order to achieve the student's maximum potential in the most efficient way, the methodology used will always depend on what the student's goals and needs are. Therefore, I try my best to tailor lessons that will fit the individual's interests best.
