English Teacher and Director of Studies at EYE!nglish
I am Thiago Moshe and I am an English teacher based in Brazil.
I have been teaching English since 2004 and have 15,000+ hours of teaching experience. With lots of love and care for students’ development, I set up my own private tutoring school called EYE!nglish at the age of 23 and since then have expanded in ways to teach English globally. I am eager to be able to share with my peeps the joy and fun of improving your language learning.
As a learner, I started studying English when I was 10 years old in a private institution. In Brazil, if you want to learn a foreign language, you need to study in such institutions. They usually provide classes twice a week, 1h30 per class. I always enjoyed the learning process and at the age of 19, after having taken the CAE (Certificate in Advanced English by Cambridge University), I decided to start teaching and fell in love with it. Since then, I developed a very strong will to help my students achieve their dreams – be it in studying abroad, taking a master’s degree or a PhD, or learning the language with mastery, confidence and autonomy. I am glad to have many success stories told by our students on our Facebook page.
In order to do a great work at learning or teaching, competence and knowledge are required. Competence can be acquired, learnt or born with. Knowledge is built, definitely. A mix of both of them make the LEARNING ENVIRONMENT a successful and unforgettable setting. International certificates such as the FCE, CAE, CPE and ECPE attest my constant responsibility in advancing my teaching skills.
I have a compilation of EFL techniques for boosting students interest and performance in class, and my teaching motto is the Language Learning TRIPOD: mastery, confidence and autonomy (learn more about them below). As far as teaching English as a foreign language goes, I am a great believer that English can change people’s mind and lives, and the teacher is the bridge between students’ current knowledge and his/her next level.
As far as technology is concerned, developing activities that enhance students’ knowledge of the language is of utmost importance in my teaching. That is why I make use of many tech tools inside and outside the class to take my students to their next level in English learning.
I started an Instagram project (@activateyourenglish) back in September 2015 and this portal is now a result of a lot of thought, effort and care put into taking my dear followers to their next level in English.
I hope you enjoy this journey!
Looking forward to interacting with you here!
The Language learning TRIPOD
learn how learning takes place in our methodology
benchmarks are established in the very beginning of each course and consultancy job and by achieving them, you – the learner – become an expert, a master in the English language
as a consequence of mastery, you – now, the master – boost your confidence in speaking and communicating in the language, leading to a higher-than-average level of English.
this is the ultimate goal: by making use of all the tools we have in our consultancy job, you – the confident master – is able to improve your English skills on your own, with little or no help from our team.
CYCLE KEEPS GOING
being autonomous leads to a much higher degree of mastery in the English language, what boosts your confidence in using the language in the most effective way. And the cycle keeps going on.
