Portuguese for Foreigners - Portuguese teacher with 7 years of experience in São Paulo

Methodology

I am a graduate and a Master in Portuguese-Language Arts from USP. My master's degree is aimed at the area of ​​Portuguese for Foreigners. I took courses and participated in events and research groups on Portuguese Foreign Language. I developed and taught preparatory course on Celpe-Bras. I adapt my classes according to the need, the interest and the objective of each student. I try to select cultural aspects that may be of interest to the student through texts, videos or music. Thus, during the class the student can expand his vocabulary, learn grammar topics and Brazilian culture.

Samira's response

O Alex me contatou para dar aulas para a Maria. Sem dúvida foi uma das melhores surpresas desse ano, pois além da aluna, ganhei uma grande amiga. Espero ter no meu caminho somente pessoas como eles dois: honestos, amáveis e receptivos. Do tipo de gente que faz eu amar mais e mais meu trabalho.

Perfect! Eu estava procurando um curso de português para estrangeiros para uma amiga que visitaria São Paulo, mas me deparava com várias dificuldades: havia desinteresse por parte das várias escolas que oferecem esse curso, falta de transparência quanto ao preço, burocracia e inflexibilidade. Decidi, então, tentar contactar diretamente um professor particular, embora estivesse com um pouco de receio. Foi então que conheci a Samira, e hoje vejo que foi, de longe, a melhor escolha que poderia ter feito.
De minha parte, já tive uma boa impressão desde o início: ela se mostrou interessada em atender as especificidades da minha amiga, tudo correu de forma transparente e, além disso, ela se mostrou uma pessoa simpática e atenciosa.
A confirmação de que a escolha havia sido certeira, no entanto, veio da minha amiga. Ela já estudou vários idiomas, e sei que é uma pessoa exigente, mas se derreteu em elogios à Samira, dizendo que se trata de uma professora muito competente, profissional e simpática, e que eu não poderia ter encontrado uma pessoa melhor. Ressaltou ainda que ficou impressionada com o fato de a Samira ter entendido precisamente as necessidades dela e ter adaptado e moldado as aulas para atendê-las.
Com essa excelente experiência, é claro que recomendo fortemente a Samira para qualquer pessoa.

Samira's response

É excelente quando professor e aluno aprendem um com o outro. Para o professor é muito satisfatório saber que o aluno realmente aprendeu e, acima de tudo, pôde usar o que aprendeu fora da aula. Adorei a experiência.

Uma super professora, muito dedicada e preparada. Será muito fácil aprender português com ela. Tive o prazer de trabalhar com ela e sei do compromisso dela com o trabalho e com os alunos.

Trabalhei com Samira na Universidade de Aswan, Egito. Alem de um ser humano extremamente solidário é bastante preocupada com a aprendizagem dos seus alunos. Para isso, prepara as aulas com muito cuidado, respeitando as especificidades de cada estudante e o contexto a que estão inseridos. É uma professora comprometida, e nisso fui testemunha da evolução dos alunos, pois a disciplina que eu lecionava, literatura, dependia do bom nível de proficiência que eles aprendiam nas aulas da professora Samira.

Interview with Samira

QUESTION 01 | 08
Você fala fluentemente esta língua por causa de suas origens ou porque um professor te motivou a aprendê-la?
Samira — Ensino português porque é minha língua materna e também porque me formei em Letras (língua portuguesa) e adoro trabalhar com estrangeiros e apresentar um pouco do Brasil para eles.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Cite uma pessoa (da atualidade, histórica ou fictícia) que, na sua opinião, representa bem a cultura da língua que você ensina.
Samira — Machado de Assis, um dos maiores escritores do Brasil.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Existe alguma palavra, expressão ou tradição típica que você goste particularmente?
Samira — Sem dúvida, um estrangeiro precisa conhecer "Nossa!", mas gosto mesmo é de "Eita!"
QUESTION 04 | 08
Por qual motivo aprender esta língua é importante (seja no âmbito escolar, profissional ou pessoal)?
Samira — É importante para quem está no Brasil poder se comunicar, visto que a maioria dos brasileiros é monolíngue.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Qual a maior dificuldade no aprendizado desta língua e o como contornar este obstáculo?
Samira — A maior dificuldade é conseguir entender pessoas com diferentes sotaques. A melhor forma de contornar é ouvindo muita música, vendo filmes, tv e falando com brasileiros.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Você poderia compartilhar alguma história e/ou curiosidade engraçada relacionada à sua profissão ou as aulas particulares?
Samira — Quando ensinava no Egito, achava engraçado que minhas alunas adoravam ouvir sertanejo e funk. Mas fazem parte da cultura do Brasil também...
QUESTION 07 | 08
Nos ajude a te conhecer melhor, nos conte um pouco sobre suas viagens, amizades nativas no idioma que você você leciona entre outros! 😁
Samira — Bom, como sou brasileira, meu contato com a língua é diário, visto que moro em São Paulo. Mas já ensinei português no Egito por três anos e foi uma experiência completamente diferente de ensinar aos alunos em imersão.
QUESTION 08 | 08
O que faz de você um Superprof (além do poder de se comunicar em várias línguas 😉) ?
Samira — Para mim, a relação com os alunos é também uma relação de afeto e amizade. É preciso ter sintonia, liberdade e reciprocidade para que se possa trocar saberes.
