I am passionate about education, languages, and communication. I have been teaching English in England for over 8 years, but I have also taught in Brazil and Italy. I have significant experience teaching English to international teenagers and adults in a range of English courses – General and Intensive English, Business English, English with a focus on exam preparation courses, especially IELTS – both face-to-face and online. I have CELTA and DIP TESOL qualifications, and a PGCE Primary degree.
I always wanted to learn more about education so I extended my experience outside the classroom coordinating the Junior programmes for a renown English school in the UK in the summers of 2010, 2013 and 2014 .
Furthermore, as an English teacher, I wanted to improve my skills and share my ideas, so I entered the world of designing lessons for different courses and schools. I also had the opportunity to revise the contents of a coursebook for the Elementary, Intermediate and Upper-Intermediate Levels for Pearson Publisher, London.
I feel like I can never stop studying, so my latest attempt to learn more about education was to enroll at the PGCE Primary Course in London. I learned so much about how children learn and about the English language itself. I had the amazing opportunity to teach different years at different English State schools.
Last but not least, I am also a teacher of Brazilian Portuguese, which I have taught for several years in London.
I wonder what is going to be my next learning adventure…
