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 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 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.
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 give lessons to younger children ( under 16) for gcses or just for basic conversational skills.
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.
My methodology is based on your doubts, quests, curiosity, and "needs to know". I will fulfill that. No boring books, but a lot of guidance and roads to go for you to learn how to find what you looking for without long hours under a candle but a very bright bulb over your head.
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.
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.
Do you want to learn the language for pleasure? To travel? For business? Or for an exam? Here is how I can help. I plan the sessions based on your goals and learning needs, always trying to make it fun and diverse (informal discussions, readings, video narration, studies of music you like or a sports article, etc).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My teaching method is reading, learning with puzzles and other games, spelling, writing, describing situations , all depending what is the best for you to learn. All my techniques and methods of instruction depends of your stage of learning. I can teach you online or face to face at your own house, in your own comfort.
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 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.
Each lesson is prepared and tailored to suit what is best for every Portuguese learner. Even if you are starting from scratch, you will get all my support to be successful. My teaching methodology will use videos, conversation, writing, games, reading and homework either. The homework would consist, e.g. learning vocabulary and recording your progress.
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.
when I am teaching someone I like to go through the topic first, then write down some keywords (translate them if I am teaching a language) and after that I like do some questions and some speaking if its a language lesson. I also like to write the keywords on some flashcards so its easier to remember them when it comes to having tests or exams.
My teaching method is simple, looks like a conversation between friends.
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.
