I studied Portuguese and Linguistics at Oxford University. I am well-versed in the science of phonetics and phonology (the production and perception of sounds), which means I can help you sound more native. I've taught English for a year in Brazil and I've tutored students through Oxford Hub and Jacari. I also speak Brazilian Portuguese fluently.
My teaching methodology:
- PDF textbooks
- Short films
My teaching background:
I worked as an English teacher for one year at an NGO. I was a private tutor for 4 months at Jacari, and taught English as a summer intern for Green Planet Ventures. My students were aged between 7 and 22, but I've also given private lessons to mature students in Indonesia, specialising in TOEFL.
My background outside of teaching:
I've been working in the NGO/NFO sectors because I'm passionate about development (human rights, environment, governance). Other than teaching, I research and translate for some international organisations. In my free time, I love to paint, sing, and write poems :)
