English for Brazilians in London. Learn about the language, the culture and the history of this unique country with a native speaker in both English and Brazilian Portuguese.

Methodology

I have plenty of experience teaching at most class levels in classes with up to 60 people but here I wish to work on a more personal basis. If you need to learn more about the English Language I am here to help you, teaching you King's English Grammar and Spelling but also to show you that there are many other accents like the Cockney or the Scouser according to where you live, and the words may sound very different to you. I also like to include other topics like History or Music so that you can learn a little more about the Culture of the land.

Experience

I have taught English in Brazil for many years both privately and in schools such as the Colégio Objetivo and now I am living in London. I have a very good knowledge of Culture, History, Music and Sport to offer to people who are here in the UK and want to know more about the country and the language. I adapt myself to the necessities of each student and try to obtain the utmost satisfaction doing this. Try me out, I'M SURE YOU WILL ENJOY YOUR LESSONS AND LEARN A LOT TO BOOT.

Excelente professor de Inglês com muitos anos de docência em escolas, aulas particulares desde o nível iniciante até inglês para negócios. Busca muito o caminho de conversação e gramática para facilitar o aprendizado com o aluno, não só um inglês "mecânico". Ideal para brasileiros que estejam procurando rápida adaptação em Londres (ou no Reino Unido em geral).

Excellent English teacher with many years of teaching in schools, private lessons from beginner level to business English. It pursues the path of conversation and grammar a lot to facilitate student learning, not just "mechanical" English.
