Hi! I'm Zeca Teixeira.
I'm located in Seattle, WA, and have been teaching English and Portuguese as a second language for over 15 years. I want to help you achieve your goals and get fluent in a second language.
How I teach
I use a variety of methods in my classes, and emphasize the methods that the student best responds to.
My focus is always on conversation, in which grammar is not explained, but rather demonstrated through practical examples (audiolingual method with a gradually increasing amount of communicative approach). My materials prioritize the vocabulary that the student needs the most at their level (high-frequency word window).
Rather learn solo?
Great! Choose any of these lesson formats, and change the format any time.
Or wanna make the most of your money? Then invite 1-3 friends who are at your fluency level and form a group class!
