  • Description


    My name is Robin, I'm English and have lived in Brazil for 25 years. My Brazilian wife, Maria, & I have two kids (Joana, 9 & Tom, almost 4). I own, run & teach in a small - at the moment, online -English language school in Resende & so need native English-speakers to help teach at the school.

    We also love other cultures & would like to host people from other cultures, teaching us about their native cultures & language(s). We have a piano, so if you want to play, learn to play or/& teach us how to play, it's all good!

    Spanish native speakers are also welcome this year, as we'd like to learn to speak Spanish fluently. If you also speak English fluently, this is a real bonus, because you can teach Spanish at home & English at school.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You'll learn some Portuguese with us, about Brazilian culture and get to see a beautiful part of Brazil, ideally located between Rio (2 hours away) & San Paulo (3.5 hours away). at the foot of the Mantiquiera mountain range, next to the oldest national park in Brazil (the Itatiaia National Park), and 2-3 hours from the lush Green Coast. You'll also learn from us to enjoy all things Brazilian: Brazilian food, music, craft cheese, cachaça & cocktails, trips to local rivers & falls (in summer).

    Workwise, you'll learn from someone who's been teaching English in Brazil for 25 years (me! ;-) how to give the best class you can and to build up a repertoire you can take with you.

  • Help


    I need enthusiastic people who'd like to teach English and to get expert tips on how to hone this skill.

    Maria & I would also be interested to hear from someone who'd like to teach us all Spanish at home.

    You need to be open to being with young children. They can be noisy & needy, but they're also loving, growing people who feed off quality contact with others.

    What else ...

    During time off, you can visit the local national park (the oldest in Brazil), go for a dip in falls & rivers, especially in hot summer months, get to know the local culture and visit bigger cities, like Rio and San Paulo, or go to the mountains nearby to enjoy cooler climes & a slower pace (Visconde de Mauá & Campos de Jordão), or the sea (Paraty, Ilha Grande & the Green Coast).
