    Teaching Approach

    Drilling all the time is very important. I lived and studied in England, Scotland, US and Argentina and each country and every single experience gave new ideas to make the teaching process exciting, challenging.. . a big new adventure into new cultures and traditions.

    Program Description

    Private lesson in company, at home and at language centres.

    Teaching Experience

    Though I earned my law degree in 1997, teaching and language have always been my great passions in life. Leading a class and being able to help students learn more effectively fascinates me. The study of languages has been a huge part of my life since early childhood. I have been teaching English, Spanish and Portuguese as Second Languages for the last 10 years at high schools and language academies in Brazil. Preparing students for the International English and Spanish Certificates is a particular area of expertise. My love of knowledge has always led me to strive for excellence in my own studies and in my students’.

    M aking classes challenging and fascinating
    Inspired enormously by Professor Carl Sagan, my philosophy is that learning must be an adventure.. After graduating in law in 1997, I decided to start my teaching career, challenging students to always learn more by creating interactive activities and bringing interesting topics to class.

    In 2002, I was invited and certified by the American University in Washington, D.C. to help undergraduate language students develop ESL workshop material. My experience as a language instructor in Brazil was part of their curriculum that year. Working with US ESL instructors was a very rewarding experience.
