I am a fully qualified teacher in my home country Brazil. I have had experience working with all ages, from children and young adults to adults.

Teaching for children: I taught for children the first words in English, such as the alphabet, colors, foods, numbers, abilities, adjectives, activities, parts of houses, etc.

For teenagers and adults: I taught Portuguese Language and I have taught them for many years how they can get their first job, get a better job, improve their skills, negotiate a better salary, improve their CVs, participate in group dynamics and much more.

I am team player, good listener, proactive, able to work with my own initiatives, motivated and flexible.
