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

TESOL cetified teacher offers conversational courses as well as a continued work on listening, reading, speaking, and comprehension skills.
During my studies in General Linguistics and Spanish, I did a lot of research on L1 and L2 language acquisition and found out that self-paced learning with the full immersion approach leads to more engaged and successful progress in an online classroom. An honest conversation about goals, dreams, or personal achievements can expand the objectives of each lesson and further boosts students’ confidence. I learned about the immersion approach during my first job at the school here in Belgrade, where I taught and mentored groups of students with special needs who needed specifically tailored classes in which they would make a more relatable connection to the language in order to conquer it. That was one of the most meaningful and joyful years of my life. During my work at BetaKid, my enthusiasm was shared by hundreds of students who have remained loyal to me to this day. I want to be a valuable resource for students. I prefer to discuss many different topics and carefully integrate them into previously introduced contexts. That way we can target the vocabulary or grammar of the day so that students can make connections and expand their opinions as well as their knowledge. In my teaching, I always strive to make my students feel heard and understood. On the whole, I have an incredible passion for my profession and would love to share my enthusiasm with learners on this platform! I hope to hear from you soon!

Hello! My name is Stavie and I've been using English ever since I can remember! Because of this, I am interested in helping others discover, learn, or improve their English skills. Have you just started learning English and you need someone to help you with this journey? Do you already have a good level you just need someone to practice with? Would you like help with an interview or presentation in English? I can help you learn a language from scratch or help you practice so you can use the language at work or in a personal setting. In our first lesson we will have a casual talk, ideally in English so that I understand your level, and we will discuss your needs and objectives in order to set the goals of our course. As a Communications professional, I have spent the past six years studying and working primarily in English.

Samar
customized English lessons to help you speak perfectly - english teacher
General English / Business English / ILETS/ TOEFL / SAT Greetings, lovely people. I appreciate you taking the time to review my profile. I am the ideal teacher if you want to enhance your confidence and develop your language skills while having a great conversation. We'll talk about everything in detail during our first class together because I do customize my sessions to match your needs. My name is Samar, and I believe that speaking, listening, having me correct your errors, writing, and reading are the greatest ways to learn. I'm from the land of the pyramids, and I'd want to learn more about your way of life and culture while also sharing some of my own. I want you to study and be my friend, and I know that you will I'll be there to encourage you constantly and to assist you at every turn. I am here to support you. I'll help boost your confidence and I'll always correct your mistakes so we can move forward together. Let's do role-plays to learn about all the daily life situations, and let's do all the pronunciation practice in a new perfect way! Let's talk about our lives, learn how to interview for a job and write a fantastic resume, and learn how to use the vocabulary we've been wanting to use all the time. I've been teaching English to adults and children for more than seven years. I taught more than 500 students worldwide, and I have instructed almost all of Cairo. I also instructed well-known celebrities like Tamer Ashour. Teaching is my passion, and I've always found it to be a very interesting and life-changing experience. I also get to meet very beautiful people from all over the world, and that is the most interesting part! I get so happy when I see my students improve all the time and when I see that I changed someone's life. I'm the ideal teacher for you if you're interested in learning through dialogue and fun. You've undoubtedly been studying English in schools and English-language programs for a while, yet you still have trouble speaking. So, to assist you to talk properly, I'm here. No more notebooks, pens, paper, or any other outdated methods that we all dislike. We've moved past that now. The wait is over—be the next success story! Success is what I strive for, and I am attaining it with every student I encounter.

Hello, my name is Lucie and I would be delighted to help you learn English, either from scratch or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving your knowledge. I always structure my classes around real-life themes (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, how to shop, how to go to the doctor, talk at work, etc). We will see grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation together. If you are intermediate, we will also do courses on texts. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice. Please note that all my classes are online (Skype or Google Meet).
