« Gustavo and I worked together at a Language School in Rio Grande do Sul/Brazil for 7 years. He is a very enthusiastic teacher (the happiest one on Saturday mornings!). He loves teaching, he is creative and dedicated to his tasks. At this specific school, learners had a final project to develop before graduation which usually envolved acting and filming. His students always delivered great work with his help and guidance. Take a chance! You will surely enjoy his classes. »

ESL Teacher with 13 years of experience teaches online classes via Skype using a dynamic communicative approach

Methodology

My classes use a communicative approach. Learning a second language demands use of oral expression skills mostly, and this is the focus of my lessons. Nevertheless, the remaining skills (reading, writing and listening) are also encouraged during classes. Writing and reading are usually assigned as homework activities.
Books and supplementary materials are provided by the teacher.
Classes are taught in a very extrovert and fun way, making students feel comfortable and free to express themselves.

Background

I am Biology and ESL Teacher. I’ve been teaching English to kids, teenagers and adults since 2005.
In 2006, I started my university Program in Biological Sciences, which was concluded in 2009.
In 2010, I started my Master’s Degree in Cell and Molecular Biology, concluding it in 2012.
In the meantime, I taught English to ESL students in Brazil until 2017 when I moved to Canada. Since the beginning of 2018, I’ve been teaching in a learning center in St. Catharines for international students. In addition, I’ve been taking a Program in Special Needs Support and Educational Assistance at Niagara College Canada.

Gustavo and I worked together at a Language School in Rio Grande do Sul/Brazil for 7 years. He is a very enthusiastic teacher (the happiest one on Saturday mornings!). He loves teaching, he is creative and dedicated to his tasks. At this specific school, learners had a final project to develop before graduation which usually envolved acting and filming.
