About Me

I am a Brazilian, from Santos (São Paulo), who is passionate about Portuguese language. Since a child, Portuguese was my favorite subject at school. I always did very well with grammar and corrected people's mistakes in my daily life.

My interest for languages expanded and currently I speak also English, German, Spanish and Dutch. This means that I can teach you Portuguese in any of these languages! :D

As a teacher, I aim to make my classes smooth, interesting and fun! I think it's very important to share with students something from my culture, such as musics, novelas (soap operas), festivities and food. I want to teach students with real life examples and vocabulary, instead of using cases that are only in the books. There is so much of Brazilian culture to be explored and this makes the language learning process much easier!

I am very flexible, so I can adapt my class to the needs of each student. If you want to do business with someone from Brazil, I am the right person to assist you! I am graduated in International Relations with focus in Business, so this gives me in depth knowledge in this field! If you are going for holidays in Brazil and you want to be able to dive more in the culture, I can also prepare classes for you!! In this way you can dance samba, while singing the lyrics!

I am very patient, so I can explain you something you didn't understand as many times as necessary. I have great communication skills, what is definetely helpful. Also, I am very enthusiastic, so I am going to do my best to keep you motivated and focused!!

Since I've learned several languages, I can share my tricks with you of how to become fluent in a new language! Finally, in Portuguese there are several words and expressions that really loose their meanings when translated. So by learning Portuguese, you really expand your horizons!

Experience / Qualifications

In 2016, I teached voluntarily Portuguese to a Syrian refugee at a Daycare for less privileged children in São Paulo. The girl was 4 years old and lived in Brazil for 6 months, but couldn't speak Portuguese. The teaching process was focused on visuals, as she couldn't write or read. It was an extremely challenging and pleasurable experience. After a few months of classes, she could already interact with other children and express herself much better.

In 2015, I lived in India for 8 months, where I teached Portguese to a group of colleagues at the company I worked (Financial Technologies). The company was expanding their business in Brazil, so by learning portuguese the employees could get more familiar with the Brazilian market. This course was busincess oriented and also inclueded advices for negotiating with Brazilians.

Learn Brazilian Portuguese in 9 weeks - Beginners Level - Group starts on Wednesday September 12th 2018
Oi Tudo bem ? My name is Marcelo Guimaraes and I am from São Paulo. I live in The Hague where I teach Portuguese. As a very experienced teacher of Brazilian Portuguese, working for two well known language institutes and with 17 years of teaching experience, I have still some free places in a group beginners level A-1 starting September 12 in the Centre of Rotterdam, in a cozy classroom. This special group I organize myself as I would like to branch out my activities, so you will get a first class training at a very attractive rate. The grouprate is € 10,00 per hour (€ 180,00 for full course) including one study book (value of € 35,00). My goal is to teach a small group of trainees the basics (A-1) of our beautiful language, with English or Dutch as a channel for explanation of the grammar. The course consists of 9 lessons of 2 hours (18 hours) with a small group of six trainees, so it is quite intensive. The 18 hours of lessons are enough to reach the next level (A-2). I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. Lessons are once a week on a fixed evening, from 19.00 to 21.00 hours. This can be on Wednesday or Thursday. The intention is to start on Wednesday 12.09 or Thursday 13.09.18 The group course consists of an attractive structured explanation of grammar and a part of the lesson where they put this immediately into practice. Already after two lessons the students are challenged to respond to questions (Q & A) in Portuguese in the present tense. I have an enormous passion to teach, and in 17 years it still feels like brand new (with all the experience now..) so students can feel this. Give it a try, you will learn Portuguese much faster than you expected. Abraços (kind regards) Marcelo

English for Specific Purposes/ General and Professional English
I truly believe that we are all lifelong learners and would love the opportunity to share this belief with others. I provide individual and in-company training courses in General and Professional English for adults working in different environments and industries. I also teach Business Certificates, Financial (ICFE), BULATS and IELTS courses at all levels. Thanks to over 10 year-experience of teaching, I am familiar with different teaching and learning methods and tools. I am also keen on integrating technology in the learning process. Through my teaching experience, I have also gained an ability to build positive relationships with my students and modify the lessons to their needs.

I am a native Portuguese and I worked in Portugal in Secondary schools for 25 years. I taught Portuguese for adults in UK for 8 years and in Dublin for 2 years.. In Holland, I teach Portuguese in International School of Amsterdam and in Guus Kieft School
