Bio:

I have been working in teaching since i graduated in philosophy majoring in teaching philosophy. Studying other languages and portuguese literary culture motivated me to teach portuguese as foreign language.

My teaching methodology:
Teacher by vocation and profession. I have been working with several students, from children, youth and adults, teaching philosophy, portuguese and english languages at schools. I follow comproved methods in language teaching and use structured plans and lessons for begginers or advanced learners, adapted to all kinds of persons, children, adults and special needs students . Five years ago i began to teach portuguese language to foreign students living in Portugal. Since then i have been improving lessons according to european levels A1 to C2 and portuguese school curriculum, preparing students for exams, helping persons to be integrated in portuguese society and teaching tourists, emmigrants and descendants of portuguese people all around the world.
My teaching background:

I have been teaching in secondary, vocational and elementary schools and i also have experience in Philosophy for Children, English and Portuguese. As personal dedication i have been studying Chinese Language and Asian Philosophies.

My background outside of teaching:

During my bachelor i dedicated to the study of Ontology and Metaphysics, studying Aristotle, Kant and contemporary philosophies. My master thesis was about the use of Logic in teaching, Philosophy of Language and Pragmatism. This lead me to the interest in Language Teaching Technologies.
