Learning a Second Language like a Pro EN / NO / PT / ES

I specialize in online private and group tutoring for children, teenagers, and adults who need help achieving their specific goals, regardless of their level of proficiency or learning challenges in the past, as the lessons are tailored with them and for them, in their own time, finding the right way for each student to absorb information.
English, Norwegian, Portuguese and Spanish are my areas of expertise, and the lessons are rich, dynamic, and interactive without being overwhelming.
Available for presencial lessons within my local area of residency.

About Me

I am a thirty-two-year-old professional guide, translator and language teacher from Lisboa, Portugal. I have learned English and Portuguese simultaneously and I have a bachelor’s degree in which Portuguese, English, Italian and Spanish languages are officially recognized.

Moreover, I have been teaching these subjects over the past ten years, both in-person and online classes to a wide range of students from all over the world.

My target audience varies between children and senior adults. My eldest student ever was actually over seventy-years-old. Definitely an inspiration to the entire class: she made me love what I do even more.

Education

Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism Information - Professional linguist: Interpreter / teacher and translator since 2010.

And because we never cease learning, I am currently improving my education by attending a TEFL Certificate course, which accredits the experience I already have.

Mafalda is a wonderful and warm teacher. My children love their Norsk lessons with her - as well as learning the language in a fun way, they get to learn a bit about Norwegian culture, and what it's like living there. Five stars!
Kids loved her and the lesson

German, English and French für everyone who wants to practice
Do you want to begin with one of the second languages, do you have questions, special exercices or do you want to practice fluent speech? I am studying two languages and will gladly share my knowledge, my tips, to give feedback and will listen....in short term and also in long term.

Conversational English: Conversation Practice and Improvement
I teach conversational English. The initial purpose of my lessons is to get my students to practice speaking English. "Practice makes perfect", it's true, but during our practice sessions, we will soon discover our weak spots and we will have to address them. The real purpose is not just practice but IMPROVEMENT. So we will dedicate a portion of our sessions together to fixing pronunciation and learning the proper way to use tenses and grammar in everyday speech. We discuss movies, literature, politics, sports, music and anything that two friends might talk about. Role playing, in which we act out situations from everyday life can be a lot of fun. The topics of our conversations largely depend on your interests. By the end of this course, you should be able to speak English fluently and confidently.

Swedish, Danish and English courses from beginner to business.
I have worked fulltime, for the past 12 years, as a language teacher and translator. I was born in Sweden, to Danish parents and live with an Englishman. I teach said three languages to both private and commercial clients, placing great emphasis on client needs and abilities. Cultural knowledge is also very important to the understanding of any language and is therefore included in all courses. The dreaded grammar is the fundamental building block to a language, but I try to make it as fun as possible.......as well as the homework and self-study.

Learn Brazilian Portuguese with a native speaker
This Brazilian Portuguese course is suitable for those who already speak a little bit and who want to practice and deepen themselves more, as well as for those who still want to take the first steps. With me you will find enough encouragement and security to expand your boundaries and understand, write and speak Portuguese more. My approach is organically structured with an eye to relevant themes for the student and self-knowledge. I studied International Politics and have interests related to ecology and spirituality. I live in the beautiful city of Recife with two cats and am also a flower essence therapist.

Repetitive language courses, English and German for any age and level
I offer repetitive English and German lessons, according to your school program or simply by wanting to develop in these languages. Having obtained my gymnasium maturity certificate in June 2020, I have an intermediate level B1 in these two languages with a small advance on English. I have vocabulary in both languages very favorable for improvement in the language we work.
