I am looking forward to teaching individuals who are interested in learning and/or improving their language abilities, especially Portuguese. I will focus on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, comprehension and writing.
I am a student myself which makes me the right person to teach since I know what my difficulties were when I first started to learn a new language. I will have a different approach with each student after evaluating their learning dynamic.
Furthermore, at the end of each class, I plan to go over everything that was acquired including what went right and wrong so there is progress on the following sessions.
My lessons will be provided individually either face-to-face or online through Skype, Whatsapp, Messenger or Facetime.
I was born in Portugal (Lisbon) and moved to the UK when I was 18 years old. I have completed four years of a Criminology degree and I am currently undertaking an MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice at Southampton Solent University.
