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 Portuguese in 10 weeks - private or group lessons -- professional with teaching degree - intensive course of 15 hours
Oi Tudo bem? My name is Marcelo and I am from São Paulo. I live in The Hague and I teach Portuguese in The Hague, Rotterdam-Centre and Amsterdam. Op wo 29.05.19 start er een groepje Beginners A-1. U bent Beginner als u nog geen verleden tijden beheerst en als u spreekvaardigheid nagenoeg nihil is. Alleen een paar woordjes is niet voldoende voor het tweede niveau. Volg een risicoloze proefles. After four lessons, you will be starting to make sentences in Portuguese and slowly start to ... SPEAK ! The rate per hour is much lower than the mentioned private lesson rate. The lessons are from 19.30 until 21.00 hours. It is a very small group ( 4 or 5 students) so it will feel like private lessons. As an experienced teacher of Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese Business Culture Training, working for two well known language institutes and with more than 18 years of teaching experience based on a Masters Degree of Literature, I want to expand my activities, because of an increased demand for affordable lessons Portuguese. Group and private lessons consist of 10 lessons of 1.5 intensive hours (15 hours) and an extra (!) lesson live in a wonderful new Brazilian Restaurant. new : I Will bring you in direct contact with other enthousiastic students of mine who had other teacher before me and are very happy with my effective style of teaching and offered to me to share this with others. So these are real referrals !! Private lessons can also be reserved per lesson. Only groups have a fixed schedule. My goal is to teach you the basics (European level A-1, A-2) or if you are advanced (B-1 and B-2) in a short period. with Dutch or English as a channel for explanation of the grammar. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. ’tarefas de casa’ (homework) will take you about 3 to 4 hours per week. The private and group lessons consist of a structured explanation of grammar and a part of the lesson where the student puts this immediately into practice with fluency practice (short sentences). I have an enormous passion for teaching, and after 19 years it still feels like brand new (even better with all the experience now..) so students can feel this passion. Give it a try, you will learn Portuguese much faster than you expected. Abraços (kind regards) Marcelo.

Private lessons of Brazilian Portuguese - English
I already have a degree in Portuguese-English, and now I'm doing a master's degree in multilingual communication. I think pronunciation is very important for good communication, so I try to help my students with that. I love grammar and grammatical differences between languages. I think we learn better by having fun.

Private lesson in French, English, Spanish or (Brazilian) Portuguese.
Languages are becoming more and more important nowadays overall due to the globalization. If you would like to succeed as an international person, you need to speak and practice languages. I can help you with that by doing specific classes for the subject you would like in Spanish, Portuguese, French or English. I will focus on listening (news, podcasts, etc), reading (articles, pages of a book, etc), speaking and practicing the language (conversation with me, play roles, etc) about topics of your choice and related to what you want to improve.

I guide and support learners to reach fluency, speaking clearly and naturally using real-life situations through individually designed courses to get them where they want to be.

They all have different needs for learning the English Language. My aim is to get them communicating quickly and effectively, either in a social or business environment. At the beginning of each course, I will complete a needs analysis report with my student. I ask them why they want or need to learn the English Language. Is it for social or business reasons? If it is for business reasons, are there particular areas they need to focus on such as the language of meetings, negotiations, emails, telephone or networking? Once the needs are identified, I will customize the course and include plenty of variety in the lessons, eg, fluency, vocabulary, listening, reading and role-plays. I believe in engaging with my students and they are always encouraged to express their opinions as this is how one progresses with a language. Please let me know when is a good time to contact you for a chat to move this forward. Best regards, Dolly
