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.
During my classes, I focus on making students comfortable with the language without being in a comfort zone. During the first class, we set our goals together and fond the best way to achieve them. New vocabulary and structures are presented as we study using different tools, such as news, texts, conversation, images, slides, videos, and podcasts.
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.
I give lessons to younger children ( under 16) for gcses or just for basic conversational skills.
Classes include reading, writing, role playing, speaking, listening, comprehension practice.
I apply several resources that I have gathered over the years, the latest textbooks and technologies. I focus on speaking, listening, reading and writing and encourage my students to speak from the very first lesson. I set up deadlines and assess student's knowledge every 2 weeks to show how they are making progress.
Strong emphasis on Grammar and verb collocations, drilling vocabulary and communicate practicing
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 main teaching approach is the Communicative Approach, for which I had full training during my CELTA course in 2010, focusing on practical tasks and communicative competence. In addition, I have extensive experience with blended teaching tools, such as VLE, Moodle or Skype, which I have frequently used for remote 1:1 classes.
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 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.
Lessons Available: Brazilian Portuguese - Basic to Advanced Levels Spanish - Basic level English - Basic to Intermediate Levels A free consultation to assess your level and requirements is needed in order to proceed with the lessons - the assessment will take place on the first half hour of the first appointment.
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 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.
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.
I have more than two years of experience teaching Portuguese to foreigners. Our classes will be 100% practical and are customized according to the student's objective.
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.
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.
I don't like boring classes, so I always try to bring something fun to my classes. I usually use songs, videos or even cake recipes (which we eat at the end) to teach verbs, rules and general vocabulary. I also teach the language talking about our rich Brazilian culture, cause I think it's all linked and it's important to know.
My teaching method is the communicative approach and my teaching is based specially on daily life situation.
Simple, bite size chunks. Vocabulary and popular daily language, business vocabulary, slang words. Delivery is call and response methods with some written help if required.
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.
My teaching consists on the basics of the language until you can reach a more advanced level allowing you to study by yourself.
