Portuguese Tutor Coventry - Josie Carvalho Powell

Methodology

I was born in Brazil and now have dual British/Brazilian nationality. I live in Coventry, West Midlands, with my British husband, who is a retired EAL tutor.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach both Brazilian Portuguese and the Portuguese of Portugal.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I graduated from "Universidade do Ipiranga" in São Paulo in 1986 with a degree in teaching Portuguese.

- How much do you charge?

£20 per hour including materials although course books are an optional extra. I make a reasonable charge for travel depending on distance. Discounts are available for pairs and groups.

- Where do you teach?

At home or by arrangement. I am willing to travel within a 15 miles radius of Coventry city centre.

- When are you available?

Daytime and evening Monday to Saturday.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Primary, secondary and adult.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Portuguese GCSE, iGCSE and GCE A and A/S level exams. I am also an approved examiner and assessor.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have considerable experience with Skype and since I switched to fibre-optics download speed is excellent.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My students are important to me and I make their needs and aspirations my priority. I try to make each lesson an enjoyable experience, which I believe fosters effective teaching, and this has also resulted in some lasting friendships.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I began teaching Portuguese at secondary level in a private school in Brazil. Since 2010, I have continued to teach both Brazilian Portuguese and the Portuguese of Portugal one-to-one and in small groups. In addition, I work with Portuguese-speaking primary and secondary level children in local schools, helping them to adjust to an English-speaking environment. I also act in a liaison capacity between their families and teaching staff.

For the past 2 years, I have been an assessor for the GCE A/AS level Writing paper and an examiner for the GCSE Oral paper.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

As at June 2018, I am regularly teaching 12 adult students in Coventry and the surrounding area who are improving their Portuguese for a variety of personal and professional reasons. I also provide online tuition for a student who now lives abroad, bringing the total to 13. In addition, I gave separate exam preparation lessons to a number of local school children in the run up to the GCSE and GCE A/AS level exams held in May.
