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 anybody who wants to either learn or improve their Portuguese.My classes adapt themselves to each student, I first evaluate their level in Portuguese and then make a class plan specifically for them. My lessons also have a cultural side to them, I believe that for someone to understand a language grammar and vocabulary are essencial but not the only ones.
I give lessons to younger children ( under 16) for gcses or just for basic conversational skills.
I try to make my lessons as fun as possible, an avoid talking for more than 20 min at a time so it doesn't get tiring. If you are interested we will be talking about grammar, vocabulary, sentence construction, comprehension.
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.
I teach on skype or face to face lessons using my own material picked from internet websites and from friends who are teacher also. The lessons could extend from 1 until 2 hours and I give lessons about grammar and vocabulary with a good time of conversation. We can be flexible depending what level the student are coming.
I give lessons up to secondary level. I can help you with your assignments as well as with your homework. I can give you lessons individually or as a small group (no more than 5 students). I help you to study, how to study and make revisions with you.
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 starts by evaluating the student's capabilities of understanding, writing and speaking the language. After that I can determine how comfortable is the student with the language and make a proper study programme for the student. That will include Hearing, Speaking, Writing and Reading.
I have grown up speaking both English and Portuguese, having then undertaken my Cambridge Examinations at School for both. In addition, I have a BA(Hons) and MSc from universities in England, and have developed French and Spanish along the way. I have acted as a translator on several occasions.
My teaching method is a student-centred approach where I coach and facilitate your learning and your overall comprehension of Portuguese.
My teaching method is informal where I prioritise student participation so that they feel involved which also results in better communication and learning outcomes. I use a variety of demonstration techniques to help students connect and improve with their practise.
I am a very patient person so don't worry, you can get there! I base my classes on Live Chats; PowerPoint presentations; games; learning support via e-mail; online class discussions; simulations; if required, classes in person by the end of each level; others. I adapt the methods to the individual needs of each student.
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.
I base my classes on the individual's or group's needs. During the first lesson I will assess your level of Portuguese and then make plans for each following class. I will use a range of fun methods to help you learn including games and flash cards.
Flexible, multi tasking skill with a strong passion of teaching. Possess good lesson planning and management skills tailored to the needs of each student. Ability to foster a strong sense of enthusiasm among non-native speakers. Comfortable working in a multilingual and multicultural setting. Familiar with modern teaching methods and techniques.
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 offer Portuguese classes for Business, designed for students looking to develop their fluency and vocabulary, particularly for professional situations and doing business in Portuguese (Portugal/Brazil).
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 can teach online or in person, whatever is the best for you. I will teach you all the basics of Portuguese first. After that, we will be able to get into what you want to learn, e.g. Holiday survival guide, how to write and pronounce, etc. I will teach you using textbooks, conversation, translation, films and series you like, games, etc.
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.
My teaching methods provide writing activities, reading and interpretation. I have been giving private lessons for almost 2 years and I really enjoy it. I make personal approach to each person who is/or who is not interested in learning. I always try to understand the student in a deeper level in order to make him feel interested in the subject he is learning .
I base my classes on the level of my students. This way I can teach the basics of the language or if the student is at an advanced level, my lessons components are more complex. I teach students of all ages. My lessons are shaped to my students and their reasons for learning the language.
Nothing better than learn or improve a new language with a native speaker. My method will Impress you from the beginning. The best way to do it is to have a conversation with a native speaker, me. I know what to teach you to become fluent in a language that could be tricky to learn.
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.
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.
