bio:
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 to train your listening skills. These are the materials I will use:
  • PDF textbooks
  • Worksheets
  • Short films
  • Music
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 :)
Teaches:
Portuguese (Brazil), English
native languages:
English
other languages spoken:

    Elhana is a professional teacher focused on my goals from the beginning. During every lesson, we practice a lot of reading, vocabulary, speaking, pronunciation, and grammar. Writing exercises I mostly get for homework but she always checks and corrects mistakes before lessons. She has extensive knowledge about languages and is able to explain every grammar rule I ask. I highly recommend! She is the best teacher I've had so far.
