Hello! I'm Joana and I'm a Portuguese native speaker. I'm 24 years old and I currently live in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal.
I started working in the hospitality industry and that gave me an excellent background in interacting with various nationalities and cultures and those were my first steps in teaching about our cultures and history to foreigners.
As most people I love to travel and get to know different places, specially outside Portugal. Another thing I love is to cook and to try new recipes, especially from other countries. My favourite hobby is probably baking bread!
I am fluent in English so if this is a language you speak it will be easy for us to interact!
I am a certified tutor and I have been a personal tutor over the last four years which makes me perfectly comfortable with teaching and dedicating myself to a single student at a time. I've been teaching Math, English and Portuguese.
For over a year now I've been working as an assistant teacher at Wall Street English (it's a language school) following a very customized method. Lately one of the subjects I've been teaching on a one-on-one method is Portuguese as Foreign Language.
Although most of my students have been adults I also feel very comfortable teaching teenagers.
Every individual is different. And that's why I believe a customized plan is always better. Depending on your goals and on your level at the moment, together we'll create a course that suits your needs.
Whether you want to learn Portuguese because you're passionate about our country or due to professional reasons (including those words specific to your work field), you'll learn both the Portuguese language and the Portuguese culture.
Book a trial so you can start your journey through the beautiful Portuguese language.
