About this tutor

I am currently provod9ng services exclusively online. I love to get to know my students and help them as much as possible to reach their language goals. I have certification teaching ESL/EFL through the ITTT program and am  tutoring in English as a Second Language through an online platform for over six months. I am here to provide my services to you and I look forward to meeting you! 

As someone who enjoys learning languages, tutoring students to learn English comes very naturally to me. I enjoy seeing the progress of my students and can truly understand the woes that come with learning a foreign language, as I speak Portuguese and am learning Spanish as well. Interacting with people of other cultures and helping them getting used to American language and culture also inspires me to represent my native language the best that I can!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Your goals and particular learning style are important to me! Starting with a new student, I enjoy discussing what prior experience you have in the target language as well as what your objectives are further down the line. After getting to know what interests my students the most, we can come up with lesson plans that are more appropriate to them. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have certification teaching ESL/EFL through the online ITTT (International TEFL & TESOL Training) program. I had also volunteered my tutoring services for a while in Brazil before starting on the Cambly online platform for tutoring in English. I have previously worked at a recreation center taking care of and tutoring young children and toddlers on various subjects, and I am currently fluent in Portuguese and learning Spanish.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I don't have a standardized pricing system, however, I usually tutor for about $6 for half-hour lessons and $11 for 1-hour lessons. For greater lengths of lesson time, a price can be discussed. I can provide lessons between 1-5 times per week and payments can be made on a weekly or monthly basis, whichever works best for you!


How did you get started teaching?

I started tutoring when I began to travel to Brazil about 3 years ago as a volunteer. During that time I received certification in TEFL and TESOL teaching and since then have started tutoring online.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a wide variety of students, though in person I have mostly tutored kids. In my online experience, I have been able to tutor many students from all around the world, including the U.S. Most of my international students come from Brazil, Saudi Arabia, or Turkey, though I have met with students from throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa as well. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Since I am in Brazil now (mid-January) I would say that Carnival is a coming event that I am looking forward to because the music and atmosphere are always sensational and I like to get out and be around people every now and then! Also, the Grammys and different movie awards are coming up and I am super excited since the arts, especially music and film, are very important to me.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would tell you to find a tutor and program that fit your style and needs. Some students only need to brush up on their skills, while other students are starting from zero! So, it's important to find a program and a style that mixes well with your objectives and your wallet. Also, make sure to test the tutor out, because you can always find someone that fits you. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

I would recommend doing some background research online and in regular Q&A platforms like Quora.com, for example, or simply asking someone you think may know the answer. If it's a more personal question that doesn't have a yes or no answer, consider what you want to get out of the class and if you are in a place to really take the time to study. If not, you may want to consider postponing those lessons for later. If so, great! I'd be happy to answer your questions.
