I finished my Masters of Music degree at the University of Miami in 1993. I moved to Brazil 20 years ago and have worked as a freelance musician and English Teacher in the São Paulo Area during that time.I have over 5 years of experience teaching on line at 2 of the most popular on line English schools. I also have taught at several well known traditional schools in the São Paulo area and have had private students in Brazil during the last 20 years. I speak fluent Portuguese and can teach Portuguese for beginners. I´m a specialist at working with Brazilians and students from Latin America and have taught students from all over the world including Japan, China, Korea, Germany, Finland and many other countries. I also speak Spanish at a basic level.
Experience: 20 years
I´m from the United States originally and was born in Arkansas. I also lived in Florida for many years before moving to Brazil. My teaching approach is conversation based and my specialties include correcting pronunciation tendencies, teaching new vocabulary and grammar. I love to work with phrasal verbs and Idiomatic expressions with my students and I also enjoy exploring slang. My classes are tailored for each student´s individual needs and tendencies.I´m very outgoing and love fishing, playing chess, teaching, dogs and music of all types. I can talk about a variety of subjects including films, sports, physics, world events, religion, sciences and cooking. I look forward to seeing you in my class!
