« Perfect! Teresa’s Portuguese lessons are fantastic! As I have just started learning Portuguese, she provided an excellent introduction to her native language and also gave some great insights into Portuguese culture. She followed-up our webcam lesson with a written document detailing all that we’d covered and suggested some areas that I could revise on my own. I would highly recommend Teresa as a Portuguese tutor and look forward to our future lessons. »

Portuguese girl teaches her native language for all levels (private or group) in Townsville

Methodology

My teaching method is adaptive to my students' learning abilities! I tend to establish a trustworthy environment where the most effective learning tools for each individual student are explored and applied. I approach topics according to students' goals and priorities.

Background

I'm a postgrad student (JCU) with a Bachelor degree in Biology (England). I was born and raised in the coastal town of Cascais, near Lisbon, where I lived until graduating from an International School. I love teaching my own language!

Perfect! Teresa’s Portuguese lessons are fantastic! As I have just started learning Portuguese, she provided an excellent introduction to her native language and also gave some great insights into Portuguese culture. She followed-up our webcam lesson with a written document detailing all that we’d covered and suggested some areas that I could revise on my own.

I would highly recommend Teresa as a Portuguese tutor and look forward to our future lessons.

Teresa's response

Zane is very interested in learning Portuguese and in just the first lesson he demonstrated good discipline. He is excited to learn and his accent (rolling r's etc) seems to be one of his strengths! I am sure he will continue to be an interested student and will make great progress as we go on.
He also seems to be very flexible with scheduling classes and has been very easy to talk to and arrange future lessons.
