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.
I give lessons to younger children ( under 16) for gcses or just for basic conversational skills.
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.
I teach through social media, tutoring people in need of mental help and support, people in depression in need of talk. I also teach people how to do basic works on their cars, like basic maintenance and repairs. Photography is my hobby, however, if anyone's interest in learning, I'd appreciate helping. I can also teach the Portuguese language which is my native language.
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.
The lessons will be divided in real scenarios, using a guideline story with many common situations.
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.
My teaching method is simple, looks like a conversation between friends.
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.
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.
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.
From early years to adults of all ages, I enjoy teaching MFL to everyone! I'm a CLTA qualified teacher as well as a Montessori tutor. My lessons are focused in a communicative approach, helping students to use the language straight away. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I'm a native speaker of both Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese.
First of all I comprehend at what level the student/students are situated. Secondly I ask the pupils what their intentions are by learning the language ( just writting or just speaking or preparation for a specific language exam). Afterwards I teach them according to the time frame we possess and keep progressing in a way that the students understand the subject, not just memorise it.
I base my classes on the student needs, either for business purpose or simply as a hobby. The method I use depends on each person.
I aproa have the topic by using all the methodology and methods learned in university in the most varied subjects.
I will base my lessons on the amount of portuguese known by the student, and use simple and easy words to explain what I am teaching and gradually get harder and harder
Are you looking for a friendly environment while learning a new language? I can help you! I am a creative artworker who is currently looking to share my experience in how to learn a new language in a creative way. I speak 3 languages fluently and I am able to communicate in 5.
I like guiding students through their learning process allowing them to really understand the Portuguese language as a meaningful communication tool embodied in significant cultural aspects. Every student has a specific purpose for learning a language, so I adjust teaching methods and contents to each individual promoting a lively and open-minded learning environment.
I focus on three main topic areas: writing, reading and speaking. My initial aim is to teach you the grammar and the vocabulary. I tailor my lessons to target your weak spots and reinforce where you are already skilled at.
Hi! I'm Mark, a second-year student of Portuguese and Russian at the University of Oxford. I use an informal and encouraging teaching technique to improve a student's confidence speaking a foreign language, whilst also improving their technical understanding to help them achieve their potential.
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.
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.
I am a very easy going teacher and I try my best to understand what my student's difficulties are so that they can improve their skills. I like to teach in a very relaxing way without pressure. I like the comunicative approach specially as it focuses on developing the listening, speaking and conversational abilities and prepares the student to the real world situations of the use of the language.
My approach to classes would be to teach in a way to facilitate communication, giving the bases for oral transmission of ideas.
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 find 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.
