Tino (Co-Founder)


I am a native English speaker and a British Citizen. I moved to Brazil in 2015 to work for Rio 2016 and loved it so much I decided to stay.

 

I was born and raised in Zimbabwe and also lived, studied and worked in the USA for over 9 years.

 

I hold degrees in Business Administration, Business Management and majored in Economics.

 

People are my passion. I believe in teaching more than just the language, but elements of the culture as well. My proudest moments are winning a round-the-world trip by prospecting over £30 million in sales for the InterContinental Hotels Group and managing the Accreditation Venue at the Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympics games.

 

I have visited over 20 countries and have lived on 4 different continents.

 

I can help you with your vocabulary, pronunciation, business strategy, sales, understanding the economy, cultural awareness and operations management, among other things.
