I offer tailored classes that will invariably target your objective. I have never failed with any student who was able to learn. If you follow my guidance, you cannot lose. The main thing that differentiates me from the rest is that you will learn how to learn and will really understand what you are doing if that is your interest, what means that you will carry transferable skills after my course with you, skills for life, not only the contents of your subject for your exam and others.
I believe in pedagogy, that is, in 'taking pupils by the hand', when I am teaching and it is hardly the case that you can come up with a teaching technique or a method that I have not heard about yet or dealt with professionally.
I can educate all levels in Mathematics, English, Portuguese, Logic, Philosophy of Language, Translation, Interpretation, and a few other subjects.
What I love about teaching is that, with it, you can make people become independent thinkers, you can gear them for life... .
See one of my papers in Philosophy here:ý
Some pieces of it have been through bad editing processes, so please overlook (punctuation and mathematical symbols).



I have 16+ years of experience. I actually started providing tuition in 1984... . Even so,
I do not look like Tutankhamun and I am quite a modern person (I am an expert also in
I.T., for instance...).

"I spent a portion of my early career in the military, where I was trained in several languages yet it seemed that I didn't make use of those skills like was planned for me. Now that I am out and making my living in the civilian world again, it has been suggested to me by quite a few people that I put these skills to use in offering some translation and interpretation services. While it sounded like a good idea, I wasn't really sure how to get started. I have picked up a few books on this subject and can say that Marcia Pinheiro's "Translation and Interpretation" is the best I have found yet. Written by someone who has over twenty years in the business of working as a professional translator/interpreter, this has turned into my go-to guide for launching a new career in this field. The fact that Pinheiro is also a professional teacher is probably one of the reasons that she has been able to convey her ideas so clearly in this book. The books describes precisely what these types of services entail, how automated programs are affecting the industry, some really great tips and tricks, and some helpful hints about cultural differences. I found this to be such an educational and thorough guide on this subject that definitely covered a lot of bases. The author cited a lot of sources in her writing, which gave me some additional places to look for information and there were some great tables and illustrations that helped relate some key concepts. As I launch my new endeavors in translation and interpretation, I feel much better armed with the knowledge from this well-written resource - one that I know I will be referring back to over and over."
