I have taught students of all ages and abilities and I am really passionate about teaching languages. It is a real pleasure for me to see the development of my students` language skills.
Generally, my lessons cover the 4 skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing).
I have a wide variety of teaching resources and I try to make my lessons as engaging and motivating as possible.
I also have experience teaching Portuguese to children.
An enthusiastic and well organised teacher, I have ten years’ experience of teaching Portuguese as a native language across primary and secondary years, and Spanish and English as second languages at beginner and novice levels.
A team player, I pride myself working with my students as team-mates on a journey to gain new skills and share experiences in how learning can be improved.
With good skills in standard IT packages and audio-visual software I am confident in producing professional but accessible teaching materials, to provide a mixed toolset for my lessons, designed to engage the students’ desire to focus and learn.

My tutor Alexsandra showed enthusiasm for the subject and tailored it to my needs with a good balance and variety of materials. I am not talented with languages, and Portuguese pronunciation is very hard - those nasal sounds take a lot of practice - but Alexsandra is a fantastic teacher and I am very motivated to keep working.
