My name is Desta. Born in Bangkok, I'm British-Eritrean and I've lived in Thailand, Barbados, France, the Ivory Coast, Jordan, Belgium, Brazil, Turkey & The Philippines.
I am a native Brazilian qualified to teach Portuguese as a Foreign Language. I am also a qualified Performing Arts teacher and frequently use my expertise in that area to plan and deliver creative and motivating lessons.
I am a qualified Brazilian teacher. In 2009 I started teaching Portuguese as a foreign language and since then I have dedicated myself to obtaining the best possible results for my students in the teaching-learning process. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach Brazilian Portuguese language to adults. I am a specialist in this subject.
My classes are based on the needs of the student. I ascertain what their goal is eg. improve speaking skills, or understanding the different between perfect and imperfect tenses, and plan sessions based on that. I use revision guides, online resources and my own lesson plans based on national curriculum schemes of work.
I believe the best way to learn a language is to experience the culture. So alongside vocabulary and grammar, I like to bring in curiosities, facts and expressions that are typically Brazilian. I think learning languages is more fun when it feels like you are talking to a friend instead of a strict professor. Moreover, I like to mold the methodology to the student's objectives and preferences.
I am an enthusiastic tutor who can make learning fun and relevant. I aim to make ideas clear to the student, in order that they can use them fluidly and flexibly, and to encourage genuine understanding. I enjoy teaching and believe learning starts with the learner, adapting ideas and course content to meet their interests and needs.
I base my classes on the needs of the individual, in order to help and encourage each student to develop his/her own potential. Depending on each goal, there are more vocabulary centered lessons, conversation classes or grammar studies. I'm able to teach beginners, intermediates, and advanced Portuguese Speakers, also working on formal and academic language.
My method is based on communiction development. Firstly a topic based on daily routine is introduced in order to develop a conversation about it. Then a text related to de topic is introduced in order to work on reading skills and vacabulary and finally grammar structures is developed.
Are you a beginner? Don't worry. I can help you! I teach from the basics of the language to advanced topics like: Business Portuguese, interview preparation, academic Portuguese, advanced grammar and conversation. I´m a native Portuguese speaker! I've been teaching Portuguese in-person, and have studied languages myself for many years.
Strong emphasis on Grammar and verb collocations, drilling vocabulary and communicate practicing
It depends on what the person is looking for: For Portuguese as a foreign language: I like to help with communication, the internal grammar of the language, through the structuring of sentences. That is to the basic and intermediate level. For more advanced levels, I work with texts, cultures, business, etc. For Brazilians: it depends on the work to be done.
I believe learning languages should be fun. I am very motivated and like to make sure my students "get out of their comfort zone", learn and have a good time. I use videos, books, movies, etc. The lessons are tailed to the student's needs.
I work with an expanded constructive method which is an associative approach trying to connect the student’s day by day life with authentic material and didactic book as reference. As the class is individual, during the class I pick up the situation that the student is in and, from there, I develop the class following the basic rules of grammar depending on the level of contact with the language.
I use technology and focus on conversations. I heard the student and correct the pronunciation to get a good apprenticeship.
I start off by having a sort of interview with the student, to understand their goals, interests, level of knowledge of the language, and why they want to learn Portuguese.
I base my classes on conversation, listening and reading, making use of the language and its rules so that students make a good sense of it. Writing exercises are usually asked as homework since pupils hand it in next class.
My teaching method is simple, looks like a conversation between friends.
My teaching method is based in communication and conversation. That's how I've learned English and that's how I think is the best and easiest way to learn a new language at a conversational level as well as pronunciation and accent.
I learned English by the Callan Method which consists of repetition and maximum exposition to the language. I believe that implementing this to Portuguese will be the right way for you to reach the fluency 4 times faster than any other method.
I can give lessons for whatever the age and level. I will try to approach the classes depending on what is the the level of the students and based on want them to achieve. I will give lessons about vocabulary, grammar, reading, writing and speaking, during them I will show videos and try to make interative and interesting for the students.

I don’t have my own material for classes, but if you have it, I can help you with your tasks and practice pronunciation. I’m able to teach beginners, intermediates and advanced portuguese speakers of all ages.
Firstly, I try to understand the students' needs in order to apply the appropriate methodologies. I seek, for example, to work with videos of international television programs (interviews, news programs, etc.) so that the student understands oral speech in a more realistic way.
Are you considering learning Portuguese? Here are some reasons why Portuguese might be an excellent choice for you: • Portuguese is the sixth most widely spoken language in the world with over 230 million speakers in four continents.
Students acquire the linguistic means of communication to move around easily in Brazil and discuss subjects from the very basic to the most advanced with a correct level of Portuguese. I also consider each student’s background knowledge, and the placement test conducted on the first day of classes helps us apply the necessary tools while teaching our students.
