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 give lessons to younger children ( under 16) for gcses or just for basic conversational skills.
I believe in adapting my teaching style to the specific student and their needs. In the first meeting we will establish together what the best course of action will be and what areas need to be worked on.
I treat each Individual as an Unique Person and I work around My Students Priority. Flexible and Reliable. First Hour for each Student is Free.
Learning a language without effort. Creative methods of teaching with simple, effective steps. Learn without any issues and become fluent and natural. Become a Portuguese Pro in any area - now! All the students will leave knowing how to speak portuguese, how to write portuguese. Looking back, they won’t feel the boredom of learning.
For me, the best way to learn is "playing", I mean, in a relaxed way, playing some games, doing some exercises, activities, projects, listening and translating music, without any pressure. I will have some materials ready for each lesson - different things and nothing heavy. Lessons need to be enjoyable if students are to learn quickly.
My teaching method is based on discussion, and how I can help my students become more confident in speaking English/Portuguese. Usually I try to use as little books as possible, because I believe too many books confuse students who are trying to learn languages. I usually plan my lessons before hand, and organise them related to day to day teaching.
When it comes to teaching, I start with a bare-bones approach, covering the basics of grammar, syntax, vocabulary and oral expression, so that students can get comfortably with the lessons gained and learned, before moving on to a more advanced level, in line with what is currently taught at the standard AS/A-Level in secondary schools.
Strong emphasis on Grammar and verb collocations, drilling vocabulary and communicate practicing
Presentations and summarising tasks along with essays and for portuguese, verbal/speaking lessons.
Every lesson I teach is completely bespoke - modeled precisely to the needs of the individual student. I specialise in helping students with whatever their ability is - they will find me comprehensive, challenging and full of helpful advice. My aim is to enable students achieve their goals and to give them genuine confidence in their own abilities.
I taught children in the past but I am open to teaching anyone of any age who has an interest in Portuguese and is wanting to improve. I ensure my lessons are interactive and dynamic instead of just throwing a load of information at my student. I believe that in allowing the student to take control of their learning and supporting as well as encouraging them to push themselves to improve.
My lessons will include introduction to portuguese so that my students can receive a first feel of the language and as we develop will be more intentive. My teaching methods revolve around attention to detail and persistence. After each lesson a work sheet will be provided. I believe we learn by practising.
My teaching method is a student-centred approach where I coach and facilitate your learning and your overall comprehension of Portuguese.
Responsible and entertainer can create a easy learning environment, very pontual don’t worry you won’t miss a class I speak a fluent portuguese, normally I like to start a class with some reading to pull the portuguese alfabeth pronunciation.
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 would be a greater Tutor Because I am native, fluent to communicate Multi language and enjoy to share/Interact with others. I have no Experience on Tutoring but I have experience in Accountant/Cost Controller for Oil& Gas Companies, I studied Accounting & Finance at Polytechnic of Namibia University.
I always focus on what students already know and on their main difficulties. I can use books, videos or anything, according to preferences. Sometimes students feel sad because they don't understand something or they think they have doubts they shoudn't have.
I was born and raised in Portugal and I´m now in Bristol taking my Bsc in Biology. I teach Portuguese and I tend to shape my lessons accordingly to the student I have since every one of them is a different person and should be treated as such so that they can fully explore their potential in my lessons and in life.
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 base my classes on the students needs and I have a great cultural knowledge that I like to add.
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.
Learning should always be fun. The teacher must find a way to get the students interested in what is being taught. Creating a connection between their interests and the lessons is key. Finding something that makes the lesson relevant to them.
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 believe in a open, friendly environment where students get the chance to share their views on the subject without being afraid of making mistakes. Only from mistakes can one develop its skills. Visual Images to grab students attention and bring a good dynamic to the studying process are a way to memorize and understand the concepts better.
I provide comprehensive and adaptive tutoring as well as exercises. I have extensive experience with teaching as I taught some courses for Red Cross. I am a student at Middlesex University, studying Biomedical Engineering (BEng), from September 2017 to July 2020.
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.

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.
My teaching meths are based on expressions. My pupil is free to express any question related to the program or any other matter that can help to clarify the subject. My lesson starts with a powerpoint presentation following the explanation.
