My lessons are tailored to the needs of each student, they tend to be casual and I especially emphasize the speaking aspect of the language; I make every subject being taught into an opportunity for the student to practice orally, preparing him or her for real life situations.
I have taught English as a second language for many years in Brazil and in the US, preparing students to succeed in proficiency tests like TOEFL, or professionals to perform well in their careers, presenting their work and/or participating in international meetings and conferences.
