Sobre mim

Hi, I'm Arthur, a Brazilian-Italian language teacher who currently lives in Ottawa, Canada, with my wife. I started teaching languages in 2013 during college, and since then I have been teaching children, adolescents, and adults. I am a certified Brazilian Portuguese teacher to foreigners and a heritage (near-native) speaker of Italian, which I also teach.

I am particularly interested in accent reduction and pronunciation, and I often draw parallels between the languages the students already know through comparative grammar. I have experience teaching native English, Spanish, Italian, and French speakers, and I can teach directly in the target language or mix it with another language which the student knows better, whenever possible. I can use faster teaching methods, with less vocabulary and more grammar, or more time-consuming methods, where vocabulary is introduced comprehensively. I teach mostly by discussing topics orally, according to the student's level. I am a fairly strict teacher, especially regarding pronunciation.

My favorite topics are languages, cultures, traveling, cooking, films, politics, economics, philosophy, and psychology. I also enjoy playing video games, discovering new restaurants, reading mangas and watching NBA games. At the age of 17 I lived for a year in Sicily, and during my master's degree, I studied in Grenoble, France. I spent many summers in Uruguay, and have already been to Argentina, Chile, Portugal, Germany, and Switzerland.
