Hello there! I am a Brazilian Portuguese tutor with a degree in English (language and literatures) and a great experience teaching Portuguese Language around the world, from west to east. I have taught at Leiden University (in the Netherlands), at Federal University of Santa Catarina (in Florianópolis-Brazil) and at Peking University, in China. My work experience includes classes for reading in Portuguese, oral expression and grammar, Brazilian Literature, as well as application of CELPE-Bras (Brazilian Certificate Proficiency in Portuguese for Foreigners). My classes are based on the belief that culture and language are interconnected in the learning process. By culture I mean the objective notion of culture (music, cinema, literature, for instance) but also the subjective notion that concerns your adaptation to the habits of a different country and to people’s behaviors. I teach classes through the communicative approach, combined with materials which concern the deeper development of Brazilian Portuguese phonetics aspects – thus, I may help you to refine your accent –, and improvement your reading and writing skills. In addition, classes are complemented by cultural materials (to be chosen according to your interests) and updated information regarding Brazilian actualities. Teaching materials, books, class preparation and progress will fit your own needs. So, if you need to prepare for a CELPE-Bras test, to improve your reading skills, to speak Portuguese better, to learn the language from the basics for living in Brazil or even for travelling to the country, I will assist you with that. Então, vamos aprender português?
