Hi, I am Tonia!
I’m Italian, but I’ve been living and working in São Paulo, Brazil for the past five years as an English and Italian teacher. Over the past 12 years I’ve had the opportunity to help students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds: extracurricular projects in grade schools, university, language schools, in-company courses both in Italy and Brazil.
During and after the completion of my MA’s course I had the chance to take several trips to the USA, spending about three months each time, for research and to perfect my language skills.
This was an amazing experience which motivated me to take one more step: a teacher training course called CELTA - Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. It really was a turning point and a milestone in my career, making a huge difference in my approach as a teacher, helping me understand the learners’ profile to offer just the right kind of help and class. So nowadays, after detecting the student’s learning style and specific needs, I can devise a 100% tailor-made course, also using each one’s interests and hobbies as a learning tool. Last but not least, students usually say they feel 100% comfortable around me, that I have empathy and I believe this is paramount.
As for my Portuguese, I obtained a certificate of proficiency called CELPE-Bras, here in São Paulo, not to mention that living here for several years has given me the opportunity to get to know the local culture pretty deeply.
