I start by letting the students express their interests and goals. My success in teaching is by making the teaching and learning fun and interesting. I like to make the lessons practical, so the students can really use their new skills in real life.
I am a university professor, and have been teaching for 20 years. I have taught in different countries and am fluent in English and Portuguese. I have experience doing workshops for adults and kids in Brazil and Kenya. I like children, pets and nature.
