Consultant, Trainer, Mentor, Speaker
I’ve been an English as a Foreign Language teacher for 17 years and worked at different schools, universities, and in many businesses. I hold a BA in International Relations and an MSc in Psychology of Education from the University of Bristol, England, as a Chevening Scholar. I’ve worked as a National Geographic Learning academic consultant, teacher trainer, and materials reviewer. I’m the former president of Partners of the Americas Goiás and I used to work as a Michigan Certificates Examiner and a bilingual program mentor for schools at Edify Education. Currently, I serve as a board member of BRAZ-TESOL’s Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) Special Interest Group (SIG). I’ve recently started teaching about language, cognition, and bilingualism as a guest lecturer for PUC-PR and Universidade Caxias do Sul in a few qualification and graduate courses. I’m a national and international speaker. I’ve spoken in conferences in Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Portugal, the UK, Poland, Spain, Romania, Montenegro, Slovakia, and Hungary. I’m the creator of a new framework called the Learning Cosmos based on the Science of Learning. I’m also the author or The Owl Factor: Reframing your Teaching Philosophy. My dream is to change education worldwide through the concepts of MBE.
What people say about me
I’ve had the pleasure of attending André’s presentations and would thoroughly recommend him as an inspiring and energising speaker. He uses social media very effectively to motivate, encourage and inform other teachers of English. He’s also totally committed to furthering his own knowledge in EFL and to sharing his specialist understanding of the brain and memory in language learning
André was a speaker at the International Fischer Conference. He is confident, knowledgeable, extremely passionate, and charismatic. He engaged the audience and he proved strong presentation skills but also a friendly and positive attitude. I would always recommend André for his qualities as a presenter, teacher, and teacher-trainer and I’d love to work with him again

The ELT field pleases us with characters that would be hard to find in other areas. André Hedlund is an example of someone who fits perfectly in this consideration. He combines hard work with creativity and tactfulness, not to mention his excellent presentation skills. As a teacher, as a colleague, as a consultant… unlimited
I met André at a Nat Geo Learning Conference. It’s easy to tell that he is genuine. He is also a talented lecturer. I really enjoyed the way he presented the facts and his sense of humor. Anyone who spends a few moments with André will be able to see he’s passionate about education and really wants to change the world
