    SAT, IELTS & TOEFL Test Prep Course for Study and Life Abroad!

    The TOEFL and SAT are two standardized tests that most North American universities use as an entrance requirement for non-native speaking students. In order to be competitive, focused and relevant practice is a must-have. Moreover, having an experienced test taker at your side to guide you through your TOEFL and S process is truly setting yourself up for success!

    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!

    In this class, we will set up a lesson plan that is specific to your personal needs. It aims to mindfully attend to your weakness(es) while achieving marginal gains in your stronger areas of the test.

    You will maximize your score by learning how to:
    - be mindful of and avoid bad test-taking habits
    - take clear and effective notes
    - structure your speaking and writing responses
    - use the test timer as a useful tool
    - employ savvy time-saving tactics

    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.

Your learning style will be taken into account and I will adapt to your requests. I have a lot of flexibility. I will give you some tips and advice on how to succeed in understanding: Oral comprehension Written comprehension And we will focus on productions that require feedback or interactions with the examiner: Written production Oral production In practice: We will make exam simulations. You choose a first topic of PO or PE that you prepare independently at home. Together, I will give you a feedback. This will bring us up to what we still need to work to make you feel comfortable. This will give us a better idea of how many courses you will need. We will train until you are comfortable. With me, we target 100, to have 75 on the day of the exam. The pace will be defined according to your needs. If you are in a hurry, plan to work outside of class. To pass the exam in the best possible conditions, consider getting ready early.

EVIDENCE ADRIA: Vendula helped me to take the DALF C2 exam in 3 months on Skype. From the beginning guided me as I wished. We worked on themes where I was less strong and deepened in the topics where I was strong. I appreciated his professionalism and flexibility. She has a very good teaching method that is adapted to the needs of the students. The classes are very didactic and efficient! I highly recommend it! MARTA: Vendula is an excellent teacher! She helped me prepare for the DALF C1 exam on Skype. It was an almost impossible mission in a very short time. My frequent errors in French grammar and the C1 exam subjects have been worked on a lot. The preparation of the oral production was totally equal to the exam requirements, so the exam day was not a surprise. She adapted the methodology to my needs and she gave a lot of practical advice to get the points in the exam. In my opinion, it is fundamental to have this type of preparation for the exam. I highly recommend it! ANJEL: It has been a pleasure to prepare for my DELF B2 exam with Vendula! Thanks to his competence and his know-how I managed to improve my French. In fact, now I feel much more comfortable speaking or writing in French. So, thank you Vendula
