Portuguese girl teaches Spanish for all levels (private or group) in Townsville

Methodology

My teaching method is adaptive to my students' learning abilities! I tend to establish a trustworthy environment where the most effective learning tools for each individual student are explored and applied. I approach topics according to students' goals and priorities.

Background

I'm a postgrad student (JCU) with a Bachelor degree in Biology (England). I was born and raised in the coastal town of Cascais, near Lisbon, where I lived until graduating from an International School. Teaching Español is a pleasure!
