Brazilian Portuguese in Wirral, England - Learn it with me

Oi! Tudo bem?

Have you been to Brazil and now you want to keep practising the language? Going to Brazil for a lovely holiday? I can help you.

I am a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker and experienced teacher.
I hold a degree in Portuguese and English studies and I have been teaching since 2000. I have taught students of all ages and abilities and I am really passionate about teaching languages. It is a real pleasure for me to see the development of my students` language skills.

I have been living in the UK since 2013, and I would love to continue my teaching and provide help for people who want to speak, write, read and understand Brazilian Portuguese as well as Brazilian culture.

Generally, my lessons cover the 4 skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing).
I have a wide variety of teaching resources and I try to make my lessons as engaging and motivating as possible.

I also have experience teaching Portuguese to children and I have DBS Enhanced status.

If you are beginning to learn Portuguese or if you already have an intermediate or advanced level, I'll be happy to help you out with whatever you need. I can explain grammatical points, practice vocabulary and most importantly help you develop your oral proficiency.

Please contact me for any enquiries. If you want a tutoring schedule I have not made available, send me a message and I will see if I can make any arrangements.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Até! [ah-teh!] - See you!

Alexsandra taught both my wife and I Portuguese for a period of approx 4 months ahead of our first visit to Brazil. We had no prior knowledge of the language and wanted to be able to make simple conversation . Alexsandra put together a programme of learning to suit our needs that we both found to be very enjoyable. She was very innovative and varied her teaching resources to give as much breadth as possible to our learning experience. Alexsandra was always very patient at the same time as encouraging us to achieve our aim. She was keen for us to not just learn the language but also to have an understanding of Brazilian culture. Alexsandra was always reliable, very patient and has a lovely sense of humour.

Alexsandra is an excellent teacher.

My husband and I have been studying Portuguese with Alexsandra for three weeks now and we find it really enjoyable. Alexsandra is an excellent teacher. We appreciate her methods and expertise. She is very organised, with lessons always well planned, but at the same time she is also very flexible and able to adapt and tailor her plans to our needs. Her lessons are never dull. Alexsandra’s enthusiasm and irresistible sense of humour keep us well engaged during the lessons. She also brings in a lot of colloquial expressions and idioms, which is important because spoken Brazilian Portuguese is quite different from the formal written language, and while a textbook can teach you how to write like a Brazilian, only a Brazilian can teach you how to speak like one.

We have just returned from our first visit to Brazil, where we met the family and friends of our Brazilian daughter-in-law. Many did not speak English but we found that we could cope. We’ve stil
