    Private lessons of Brazilian Portuguese - English
    I already have a degree in Portuguese-English, and now I'm doing a master's degree in multilingual communication. I believe that pronunciation is very important for good communication, so I try to help my students with that. I love grammar and grammatical differences between languages. I think we learn more when we learn while having fun.

    Karla
    English Tutoring by a certified TEFL teacher from London
    As a non-native English Proficiency Speaker (C2), I am fully familiar with the difficulties of learning English as a second language and as a student I am familiar with the hardships and learning progress. I have been certified as a TESOL CERTF teacher and have had experience in giving lessons in a class of 15 students at summer language schools or 1to1 lessons! My focus during the session is to establish the target language and focus on familiarising it to the students. The class duration is 60 minutes and involves targeting the students goals but including the student's needs. I give out homework because it is my believe that 'Repetitio est mater studiorum'- repetition is the main key to making a progress in learning! I understand that learning a non-native and unfamiliar language can be overwhelming thus I try to take the class sessions slowly, including the repetition of the main problem until it is understood, however, I do like to encourage my students to push themselves to a new challenge. The classes are taught solely in English, since that is the target language!
