About meMy name is Raquel, I am 33 years old and I am from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but currently I am living in Canada. I have a degree in Nursing and Post graduation in Oncologic Nurse in Brazil. I had an opportunity to teach not only material in my area (nursing) but also Portuguese and English. I taught in a nursing course in Brazil and I taught students at home. In my experience having individual class, they had different ways to learn. For classes as a group, it is important to keep the class very dynamic and focused. I have a good material to present in the classes and always organize the material before each class. My method based on how the student learns better. I believe each person has different way to learn new languages. The teaching of grammar is accompanied by the learning of vocabulary and pronunciation in a light way, addressing topics of specific interest, as far as possible, of each student. I also like to focus on helping students to gain confidence to speak and lose the fear to make mistakes. I speak English as well so it can be helpful for those do not speak any Portuguese. As a native speaker I can help the students go deep in the language and offer a good material for classes, including books, music and movies. As a person that it is living in a different country and speaking different language, I understand most of difficulties and barriers to learn a new language. By identifying those barriers is a key point to improve learning. I love Portuguese and teaching Portuguese. I love meeting new people from around the world and look forward to helping people with their learning and in turn I hope I can also learn something from them.
