I lived in São Paulo for most of my life, and since 2015 I've been living in Montréal, Canada. Even though I live in the French province of the country, my closest friends are anglophones (have you heard that word before?), which means, English is their native/preferred language. That said, I'm pretty comfortable with both Brazilian Portuguese and English and I would love to help you out with one of those languages.
My approach is less towards grammar & rules and more towards fluid communication, even if that includes a few mistakes at first. Ideally, we will focus on conversation, so you are not a walking encyclopedia but rather, a skillful human that is able to connect and communicate!
Also, If you are part of the LGBTQIA+ community, feel welcomed and I will help you with neutral pronouns and all up-to-date words and expressions, so you make sure to be inclusive to all folks even in your newest language!
I like focusing on street language, pronunciation, and comprehension. I'll make sure you know the difference between the language that's in the books and what it actually sounds like in real life.
