Hakkımda

I am originally from Brazil but grew up in England so I a native speaker of both English and Portuguese. I love travelling and learning about different cultures and languages. I am fluent in Spanish and have a basic understanding of Italian. Today I live in Malta and enjoy communicating with people from all walks of life. I have a Level 4 Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) from the University of Cambridge, ESOL Examinations. As a person and teacher I am committed, organized, sensitive and have strong attention to detail. I naturally see the word from a much bigger perspective (birds eye view) and I am able to break things down, seeing patterns and common mistakes language students make, helping them improve from their very first class with me.

I have worked with students from all over the world from South Americans, to Asians, to Arabs, to Europeans. My students have found my calm and patient teaching style helpful. I am also very passionate about all the different things I do be that English Teaching, Counselling (talking therapy), Alternative Healing or Capoeira (Brazilian martial-art and dance). As an English Teacher I feel a simple act such as mastering phonetics and pronunciation of a difficult word for a student is something to be celebrated, validating such milestones is confidence building for the student and makes learning more memorable and enjoyable. When students ask me "what can I do to improve my English?" the first thing I tell them is to try and make their learning experience fun, to bring topics they are interested in to class and to be creative in their learning. This is my approach to life and learning, when you make something fun it takes the pressure and stress away, making the whole learning experience more memorable. The other important thing to know about my teaching approach is that with me every mistake a student makes is an opportunity to learn. If you look at life through a different lens all of a sudden things become easier. With my approach students are able to learn fast and get the results they want in an enjoyable way. I believe that life is simple we are the ones that complicate it sometimes!

Communicating and working with people from different cultures has always been one of my fortes. Choose to learn English with me and I will look forward to supporting and empowering you on your language learning journey. Whatever you do make it fun - smile and the world smiles with you!
