What kind of experience do you have?
I have more than 25 years experience in teaching Performing Arts in Primary and Secondary Schools. Since moving to London in 1998, I have been teaching in Special Needs Education (Secondary Schools) and Inclusive Learning (Furher Education). My last/present position is PMLD Lecturer at the Ealing, West London & Hammersmith College, working with learners within the Autism Spectrum, Down Syndrome and PMLD.

As a native Brazilian and qualified language teacher, I have bee teaching Portuguese as a Foreign Language in London, in Language schools such as Língua Direta and BERLITZ, as well as in private tuition to individuals and companies since 1998.

As a Yoga Practitioner with more than 25 years experience, I started teaching Yoga during the 7 years working with young adults within the Autism Spectrum for the National Autistic Society and have continued doing so until the present in association with Yoga4Autism.

Before choosing to graduate in Performing Arts - Teaching Qualification - in Brazil, I had completed 3 years studying at the Faculty of Mathematics and Geology and at that time I started working as a Maths tutor' preparing students for the exams required to enter university. Since moving to London, where I have been teaching Dance and also carried on teaching Maths in private tuition, I have always felt very motivated to think out of the box while exploring the most effective teaching techniques for the different learning styles - specially the kinaesthetic - in order to provide a unique experience for every one of my students.

For that reason I feel confident teaching Maths.

Do you have a personal message for students?
Brazilian Portuguese - I have been teaching in private tuitions and also in language schools, usually for adult learners and in 2015 I started teaching a student who owns a company where most of the employees are Portuguese or Brazilian. Although he started learning Portuguese language because he wanted to be able to communicate more efficiently with them, the lessons also became a very pleasant pastime after he developed confidence in his language skills. It's been a pleasure to witness the student's progress.

Maths - For more than a year now, I have been teaching a 12 years old student who needed help to improve his Maths results at school. Although he loves most of Maths' topics and is very dedicated to his studies, he needed specialist support to improve his attention skills and confidence. Along this last year, having had weekly tuitions, he has significantly improved his results, which has helped him feel more confident and motivated and the parents are also very happy with his progress.
