Aula de Inglês

(English course)

Course description:

Para a primeira aula, vamos nos introduzir e encontrar o seu nível. Depois dessa aula, vou saber como eu posso construir uma aula em relação com seu trabalho, paixão ou outra razão(ões) para aprender inglês. Com isso, enfocáramos na gramática e jeito da língua (livro, material, jogos, videos, etc).

For your first class, we will introduce each other and figure out your appropriate level. After this, I will know how to construct a class in relation to your work, passion or other reason(s) for learning English. With this, we will focus on grammar and understand how the language is used.

Teaching approach:

I pull out ideas from my different source materials. There is a fine balance of grammar practice exercises and homework, teaching and showing, and educational game-playing and movie-watching. It is the perfect blend of what you need to find a language intriguing and therefore want to learn it.

Alexander Kipling

City / Country of origin: San Diego, CA

Mother language: English

Spoken languages: Portuguese


I am an American born in San Diego but raised in Los Angeles, California. I graduated with a degree in International studies, with a focus on Brazil and for that reason I am living here in São Paulo!

I love teaching youth and adults English. There are so many diverse ways to approach English learners; you have to be creative but resolute. I work within the grammar book but also love giving assignments with movies, games, etc.

Personally, outside of the joy of teaching, I love soccer and also work with coffee.

Sou um americano nascido em San Diego mas cresci em Los Angeles, California. Eu me formei em Estudos Internacionais, enfocado no Brasil e, por isso, eu atualmente moro aqui em São Paulo!

Eu gosto muito de ensinar inglês para adolescentes e adultos. Tem muitas formas de aprender inglês; pode ser criativo senão resoluto.

Eu trabalho com o livro de gramática mas também eu gosto de dar tarefas sobre filmes, jogos, notícias, etc.

Pessoalmente, além do prazer de dar aula, eu gosto de jogar futebol e trabalhar com café.


Bachelor's Degree in Latin American Studies/International Studies and Spanish, Willamette University, 2012.
