    Gain Confidence Speaking English with a Native English Teacher!

    The focus of this class is to give the students the tools they need to speak the English language with confidence and fluidity. It aims to attend to the responses of the question:

    "What are my weaknesses when I try to communicate in English?"

    My goal is to provide challenging, interactive and FUN lessons and activities that all attend to the student's particular experiences and needs. Some of the students I have had the pleasure to work with include:
    - Doctors who travel internationally for work
    - Students needing a tutor for the Cambridge exams
    - Individuals who do public speaking.
    - Small companies and start ups who do business abroad
    - Adults who simply want to improve grammar

    I assign homework activities and periodic progress reports via Google Docs. We utilize audio/visual and reading material found online, so having a smartphone or tablet in class is helpful, but not required.

    About Me

    I am obsessed with languages and the many, beautiful ways that humans communicate with one another. I also consider myself as an effective teacher, in the sense that I adopt my approach to fit a wide range of student needs and learning styles.

    I am fluent in American English, Portuguese and Spanish. I am presently teaching in Barcelona, Spain. If there is one thing I have learned it's that traveling is the very best way to absorb a language. No matter how effective a teacher may be, incessant exposure to the language is the way to learn it. If I had never spent time in Brazil I would have never attained the fluency I now enjoy. One of my goals in Spain is to become fluent in Castellano and Catalan.

    Outside of teaching English, I am an avid tennis player (PTR certified tennis instructor) and competitive road cyclist. I've completed three Chicago Marathons and am a Boston Marathon qualifier. Maintaining a fit mind and body are of great importance to me.

    I look forward to coaching you! Feel free to reach out if you have questions or concerns regarding my English classes.

I have ten years of experience teaching and tutoring English as Second Language and standardized tests, including the IELTS, TOEIC, SAT, GRE and GMAT. Additionally, having worked as a tennis professional, I am confident that I will equip you with the mental sharpness required to ace the exam!

    Take your English or German to the next level with me!
    "One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way." I am an absolute language enthusiast, who is as well lucky to pursue her greatest hobby at the university - I study to become a teacher of both English and German. I specialize in teaching mostly through conversation, during which I as well explain the main principles of grammar. Why so? I do not want my students to be overwhelmed by grammar and only get a minor option to speak and use what they just learned. This way of teaching as well allows me (and my students) to get to know each other better, which I find important. I prefer eye to eye lessons to the ones through Skype, as I believe that it makes a great difference when you know your language partner in person, not only through a laptop screen. Do not hesitate to contact me, I am looking forward to meeting you!
