A 23 year experienced self-motivated qualified teacher of Portuguese and English languages that delivers a high standard of teaching. An enthusiastic, patient and highly organized individual with a strong work ethic and a proven ability to provide personally tailored support for pupils to reach their potential. I cover london and do lessons online.
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 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 approach is the step by step, basics then moving on until the student is able to structure a phrase and correct verbs - written or spoken - while also open to suggestions as to keep the class funny and everyone engaged.
My teaching method is to use grammar as base, but also focusing on conversation, pronunciation and popular expressions through a dynamic lesson. Also important to introduce the culture on which the language is based, comparing with other accents and familiariase the student with everything that involves Portuguese.
My objective is to have my students completely fluent in Portuguese as if they are natives from Brazil. I'll attend to all your needs and questions during lesson time and even after it, providing you with useful online notes about what has been learnt so students are able to have access to what happened in lesson even after months.
I give lessons to younger children ( under 16) for gcses or just for basic conversational skills.
The courses are adapted according to the needs of the students.
The person seeking these lessons can choose a theme and we will have a chat about it, meanwhile I'll give pointers on correct pronunciation, grammar and expressions. Since I'm not actually a teacher this will help you feel comfortable in speaking and interacting.
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.
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 want to help you in your gaps. Let's find out together how to improve your learning skills. Do you feel speaking is where your difficulty lays? Let's listen to some music, watch videos, try to practice hyphotetical real situations...
I assure a dynamic course with great sense of humor, focused on conversation and ways of speaking in Brazil through texts, simulations, dialogues, music, videos, games and oral histories, without forgetting learning the grammar, of course.
I will talk to you in english to explain, and portuguese for you to learn. I know how it is to be on your own learning a language. So i'm here to help.I can translate your texts to portuguese and correct your pronunciation.Teach how to say words you can't. Show you links and things about my culture. Read aloud what you can imagine how to pronunce.
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.
Learning objectives and skills to be developed at different levels: *** BEGINNER: - Basic Grammar - Phrase Structuring - Basic verbal tenses - Intonation and accent basics - Conversations about self-description, shopping-what to ask, ordering at restaurants and going on vacation. *** INTERMEDIATE: - More grammar focus, including different verbal tenses, etc.
We will work together to find the best way for you to learn. The method of teaching should match the student, not the other way around. We will talk and introduce the language to you in a natural way, so the learning comes easy, and stays on your mind.
I have dynamic lessons specifically planned for you. My lessons will include: grammar content, reading comprehension, listening and conversation. I will use a several multimedia tools, like books, songs, video, films. We can start from the basic steps to the advanced sentences.
Firstly I would like to hear about your lifestyle as each person is different. I will then suggest which method I recommend and we can choose one together.
My method is bespoke for each student, as everyone is different and has different requests. I can adapt to most :) I truly believe in trying my best to make each lesson memorable, like so its easier to my student to learn and remember.
My teaching method is the communicative approach and my teaching is based specially on daily life situation.
My teaching method is practicing speaking and listening, I use an specific book for it. And I make suggestions of films and series to watch in portuguese.
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 will adapt to the method the student is using if already attending a language school. If not, we are starting from the basics with grammar, vocabulary and lots of exercises.
First of all I prefer to know about the student or the group because I believe each person is unique about learning
I base my classes in listen, repeat and write, doing some comparisons with the English for help the student comprehend better the context of the class. Once he learned to recognise the words, he is able to write then more easily. The classes are very simple, approcheable and based on a informal talk, to help in daily conversations.
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.
I based my classes on all the need-to-know stuff. I can prepare all our classes with the subjects you need/want to know and I will try to make everything the most interactive as possible. Brazil is a very big and diverse place, it gets easier to learn and understand our language when you learn a bit about the country too, so that will also be included in my classes.
I have extensive experience in teaching Portuguese to all levels. I provide all the learning resources and I design a programme of classes according to the level and interest of each student in a very relaxed and playful methodology. I am happy to offer a free class for us to meet and for you to get a taste of my methodology and decide if you would like to carry on with the classes.
My teaching method changes according to the student's needs, lessons can be face to face or even online and they are available for all ages. As a teacher, I'd personally say that I am very patient and I'd be pleased to help my students in any difficulties about the tasks.
