Brazilian, outgoing, dynamic, and highly experienced as a Portuguese teacher. Over the past 20 years I have taught hundreds of adults and children from many backgrounds and nationalities to speak Portuguese.
Advanced English Communication Courses - BCIT and VCC. Bachelor of Arts, Portuguese Language and Literature - Universidade Federal do Paraná (UFPR), Curitiba, Brazil.
Currently teaching Portuguese at the University of British Columbia, and for private students. Owner of a very busy language school in Brazil for many years. Portuguese teacher for adults and children.
Proven methodology. To get students communicating quickly and easily in Portuguese I combine simple textbook and oral exercises with conversation and practical outside classes. All programs are tailored to each student's needs.
Flexible hours Monday to Friday.
Online, or at or close to my home in Vancouver.
Mariam is an absolutely amazing teacher. She is a ray of sunshine when she enters the room. Her teaching style is very dynamic, fresh and upbeat. There is never a dull moment when Mariam is teaching Portuguese. We have been studying with her for a year now, and our Portuguese has really improved. She is a superb teacher and knows her stuff.
I have been happy with Mariam as my Portuguese tutor. She is patient and fun to work with. She teaches me to improve my conversation skills. She listens, responds and corrects my language. She chooses interesting topics to discuss for each class. She is professional and her teaching style is adaptive to every student. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning Brazilian Portuguese.
Mariam taught me Portuguese when I used to live in Brazil. She had me communicating comfortably in no time. She is patient and has all kinds of great tips and exercises to make the learning process fun and interesting. I've spoken to lots of her other students over the years, and they all say the same thing - she's superb.
