I am an experienced ESL Teacher (English as a Second Language) offering private lessons to migrants and newcomers living in Perth. I want to help non-native speakers be confident with their English abilities and feel comfortable with the process of acquiring a new language.
My lessons are usually made of 20% of instructions and 80% of practice. We often start by showing examples of a grammar topic or expression, then we go through a guided practice and finally, the student is encouraged to practice autonomously.
The first lesson will focus on determining the student's level and goals with the language.
I was educated in Brazil, with a Bachelor of Portuguese (Linguistics, Literature and Cultural Studies; 2009-2013) and a Masters of Literary Theory and History (2013-2015).
Residing in Australia, I continued my studies undertaking Academic English at Curtin (2016-17). In 2018 I started volunteering for the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP - NorthMetro TAFE) as a Classroom Tutor, helping migrants to develop their English skills confidently.
I completed my CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages - University of Cambridge) in 2018 and have been teaching in private English schools since then.
I also have gained experience as a private tutor helping high school, undergraduate and postgraduate students develop their writing skills.

Danielle is a friend. I know her to be a thoughtful, intuitive and intelligent person who is clear and articulate. Danielle is an experienced teacher who has taught in many contexts and I have no hesitation in recommending her as a teacher.
Danielle is a very patient teacher. She understands the challenges of speaking and writing in another language and makes the lessons enjoyable. She helped me develop my confidence in writing in portuguese
When I first met Dani in Brazil in 2015, the first thing that stood out was her passion and proficiency for languages! I was in awe. We hit it off immediately and when I wanted to improve my portuguese to communicate better with my husband's family, I reached out to Dani for help. Dani was very patient and kind as she lead me through vocabulary, conjugations, and most importantly regional slang and expressions! Now, there is less chance of embarrassing misunderstandings with my in-laws!
I wholeheartedly recommend Dani for her commitment and care for helping others.
Danielle is commited to her work and has a very good knowledge of English and Portuguese, from grammar and linguistics to what makes a language useful in a daily basis. She is a great teacher (and human being) and also has nice taste in culture in general.
