I have achieved my teaching qualifications in Brazil, where I went to university and worked for ten years with varied age groups, from young children to adults.
I also hold an MA in Arts (Humanity, English Literature) degree held in the UK.
I like to combine methods so that each lesson is shaped to the student needs and/or goals.
I am a Brazilian native speaker with qualifications in both English and Portuguese (language and Literature) and over twenty years experience in teaching 1-2-1 or group classes. I am living in the UK for over a decade and have and eye for the details that will guide you into great fluency.
