About meMy name is Felipe, and I am Brazilian, from Rio de Janeiro and currently living in Belém do Pará, Amazon region of Brasil. Teaching Brazilian Portuguese to whoever is one of my passions. I tailor my methodology for teaching based on your learning objectives and I create our lessons according to it. My favourite style is to teach Brazilian Portuguese interacting with Brazilian culture. Portuguese is my first language, and I am also fluent in Spanish and English. I am a professional geographer and anthropologist. I am currently a doctoral candidate researching indigenous communities in the Brazilian Amazon at Universidade Federal do Pará. If you are interested in learning how to speak Brazilian Portuguese and are curious about the cultural aspects too, then we already synced! My main goal is that you become able to speak Portuguese with confidence. To achieve this, we will work on the one hand vocabulary and on the other grammar. It will be the intertwining between the knowledge of words and the grammatical structure of the language that will enable you to express yourself and understand Portuguese. We will not need to go into grammatical terminology for us to work on the particulars of grammar, unless you want it. My methodology: * I provide audiovisual and written material adapted to the profile and objective of the students * Work the language within the Brazilian cultural context. * Work with Brazilian music and texts. * Work on grammar and vocabulary in lessons * If there is interest, I give homework to improve the content studied in the lessons.
