Education and Qualifications
|school:||Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie|
I coordinated a Language School in Sao Paulo and I have more than 14 years teaching executives and diplomats in Sao Paulo and via Skype.
I use the communicative approach which emphasizes the use of Portuguese in real-life situations. Interactive class activities encourage oral communication and self-expression. Grammar and vocabulary are always taught in context, and students are encouraged to use the forms and functions presented in class in meaningful ways.
In order to make the learning of the language easier, I teach grammar by applying it to actual reading texts. On a daily basis, the student also learns through his own experiences, which then become a powerful resource throughout the learning process.
Since my methodology takes into account the student's actual life interactions, I emphasize communication through conversation exercises, such as open discussions with the teacher and role-plays.
My lessons are especially designed to meet student needs. I have had extensive experience creating courses and programs for speakers of English and for speakers of Spanish, but my classes are for speakers of any language.
