Become a Student

Language: Portuguese
Price per lesson : $22.50

Why am I a good teacher?

One of my biggest goals is to become a teacher. In fact, it’s part of my personal mission statement: “My mission is to experience life through…teaching others.” I don’t want to be a run-of-the-mill boring teacher, though.

What do I do apart from teaching?

I am a freelancer translator. That's great!

A minha primeira aula na lingua portuguesa com Michelle foi muito interessante e agradavel. Ela sabe explicar compreensivemente e tem muito paciência. Eu tambem, como um estrangeiro, que queria re-activar e melhorar o seu Portugues, posso recomendar Michelle como uma professora competente e simpática.

Her lesson was great! She is really friendly, patient, nice! We had a lesson for an hour, I could keep speaking Portuguese even I'm a beginner. I had a great time with her. I definitely recommend Michelle. I'm looking forward to having lessons with her.

Michelle says "I don’t want to be a run-of-the-mill boring teacher, though" - and: SHE ISN'T. Very good lessons, very interesting, never boring! But be aware: Michelle is a very engaged teacher and requires you to really dedicate yourself to your language studies. She is always very well prepared and expects the same thing from her students. If you are not well prepared, she will address your lack of engagement very clearly. ;-) But remember: She really is a very good teacher!!!
