My teaching method is grammar-translation based. First I teach my students how the grammar in Spanish and/or Portuguese varies from English grammar, then I give them a paragraph in Portuguese and/or Spanish for them to translate into English and vice-versa. I also use the audio-lingo method. I have the advantage of being fluent in these 3 languages and so being able to teach students how to perfect oral pronunciation and accent.
I am a Portuguese National with an Arts background (in performance). I first moved to the U.K. when I was just 5 years old which was the perfect age to provide me the ability to speak English as fluently as Portuguese! I moved back to Portugal where I learnt Spanish proficiently as a third language, then I moved to Glasgow for University to complete my Theatre Studies & English Literature degree!
I have known Francisca for years now and she is a fantastic tutor!
She is a naturally gifted teacher and what's more, she has an uncanny ability to make a person learn and understand Portuguese. If someone doesn't understand, she begins again or tries another approach which is an amazing quality for any tutor to have. She's 10/10.
I can not recommend Francisca enough- she was a very encouraging and patient teacher. It was great to have a teacher who was Portuguese herself so that I can be confident my pronunciations are correct. I had had some difficulties with my Portuguese assessments and Francisca really helped me develop my language skills!
Francisca is a fantastic tutor, she is very patient with you when learning and has a great teaching style which is easy to follow. I would definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Portuguese.
Francisca has been a great tutor so far! Her clear, concise and well-crafted curriculum has given me an excellent grounding in the basics of speaking, reading and writing in Portuguese in only a handful of lessons.
