TUTOR: CAROLINA
NATIONALITY: ARGENTINE
LOCATION: RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL
LANGUAGE TAUGHT: SPANISH
HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT LIM?

I heard about LIM surfing the web.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO TEACH WITH LIM?

I had given lessons before, and as it was my first time living abroad and learning the native language, giving Spanish lessons was a great way to do so! I teach Spanish, and learn Portuguese at the same time 🙂

WHAT DO/DID YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING A LIM TUTOR?

Being a LIM tutor means that you teach people your language -and culture!-, in a personal way, preparing your lessons specifically for your learner’s needs, observing how they learn and apply the new knowledge in their daily life 🙂

WHAT DO/DID YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT LIM’S APPROACH TO TEACHING LANGUAGES?

As a freelancer, used to doing things in non-conventional ways, the LIM method is perfect for me; it’s something I do because I believe it’s the best way to teach, and the way I learned other languages too.

NATIONALITY: BRITISH
LOCATION: RECIFE, BRAZIL
LANGUAGE TAUGHT: ENGLISH
HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT LIM?

I heard about LIM while I was planning my move to Brazil. I applied to be a tutor through the LIM website.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO TEACH WITH LIM?

LIM offered a competitive pay rate and immediate work, which was very reassuring!

WHAT DO/DID YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING A LIM TUTOR?

I loved meeting new language learners from different backgrounds and being part of their life changing decisions to move abroad or to improve their professional prospects.

WHAT DO/DID YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT LIM’S APPROACH TO TEACHING LANGUAGES?

I loved the guided lesson plans which most schools I have worked with do not provide. This helped me focus on the learners rather than on content creation.
