Sobre mim

A little about me...
I live in London and am a native English speaker. I was born in Brazil but grew up in England so I have the best of both worlds. I have a love for languages and travelling and enjoy learning about different cultures. I have lived in Guatemala, Brazil, Spain, Palestine and recently have just arrived back in London after having spent 2 years living on the beautiful Maltese islands. I am a native Portuguese speaker, I am fluent in Spanish and I have a basic understanding of Italian. I am a trained therapist and often use my psychological skills to support and help my students with anxiety, work or exam pressure and confidence issues to help them progress with their language learning. Some of my interests and hobbies include healing, alternative therapies, martial arts and psychology.

A little about my teaching qualification and qualities...
I have a Level 4 Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) from the University of Cambridge. I am committed, organized and sensitive. I have strong attention to detail. From the very first class, I am able to help the students feel comfortable and relaxed which makes for a very good learning environment. I am able to break things down easily and observe bad habits and common mistakes students make in order to help them improve.

A little about my experience and teaching style...
I have worked with students from all over the world. My students have found my calm and patient teaching style helpful. I am also a passionate and dedicated person. As an English teacher, I feel mastering the pronunciation of a difficult word for a student is something to be celebrated. This is great for a student's confidence plus it makes learning more memorable. For me, learning should also be enjoyable. I always encourage students to bring topics they are interested in, to class and to be creative in their learning. Mistakes in language learning are very important for me, I see them as a positive experience as every mistake a student makes is an opportunity to learn. If you look at life through a different lens all of a sudden things become easier. With my approach students are able to learn fast and get the results they want in an enjoyable way.

I look forward to supporting and empowering you on your language learning journey!
