Hello, there!

My name's Guilherme and I've been an English teacher and trainer for over 30 years now. Wow, time flies! Throughout these years I have seen many trends come and go, have been "forced" to experiment with many difference "methodologies" and have grown a little wiser to know that some things are meant to go, but essential things tend to stay. Basic classroom management skills is one of these things. Discipline is another. I cannot envisage any learning experience in which some (however minimum amount of) discipline is not involved. Obviously, I am speaking from a very personal perspective, as I consider myself very disciplined!

I also believe in curiosity. Both teachers and students need to be curious - that's ultimately makes learning a worth-while experience.

In my spare time I also work as a body therapist (Bioenergetics Therapy). I have just a few patients, but I do my best to help them become better people. (Seeing a patient is a little like teaching one-to-one, but going more deeply into matters!)

As an Academic Coordinator, I'm in charge of a number of distance training courses (such as this one!) and I'm also the editor of the Teachers' Portal.

That's me in a nutshell. Always eager to learn. always willing to share.
