Hello, My name is Mariana and I´ve been an English teacher for more than 15 years. I´m very passionate about human behaviour and self improvement. I went to a post graduate program at Senac, focused in People Management, and in 2016 I got my 1st coaching certification, and I have, since then, combined self improvement, soft skills and language improvement in my classes. For the past 5 years I´ve been teaching Business English for adults in corporations. I really believe we can build stronger professionals for the market with our classes.
