Profile of teacher Elhana
I am a linguist and an experienced English teacher.
- 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.
- what should you expect from my classes:
- You’ll expect conversation practices as well as lessons from textbooks and my own worksheets to practise your writing and comprehension. I will be using videos and music as well to train your listening skills. These are the materials I will use:
- 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 for mature students in Indonesia, specialising in TOEFL.
- my background outside of teaching:
- I am a recent graduate in Portuguese and Linguistics, which means I can tell you a lot about Portuguese literature and answer your language questions. Other than that, my working experiences primarily include teaching English, translation services, or volunteering at NGOs.
- English, Portuguese (Brazil)
- native languages:
- other languages spoken:
- Dutch, German, Spanish

Elhana's lessons are very interesting and fun. We've done a lot of helpful exercises and discussed topic which would be useful for my exams.
Elhana builds work during classes very interestingly!
