I am sure that I am more than capable of teaching my native tongue, Portuguese, to anybody willing to learn it.
I have excellent interpersonal skills and my last employment was with the LA County - Department of Children and Family Services, as a Bilingual Social Worker III, which I did for 12 years. I have no criminal or any other issues with my background check, and you're free and welcome to proceed with it. I have also worked in the field of Psychiatric and Mental Health, where I had the opportunity to deal with people from ages 3 through 80.
I am patient, eager to teach and willing to help anyone who is trying to learn or acquire knowledge about my native language. I can almost guarantee that nobody hiring me as a teacher of the Portuguese language, will ever leave without learning what the language is and how important it has become to this new world order of power and economics.
I am graduated with a degree in political science from the University of New Hampshire, back in 1993. I also am fluent in Spanish and have studied other languages such as French and Italian. I have taught English to Brazilians in Schools in Brazil, while I was on vacation there, in the recent past. Fisk School and CCAA are some of the local schools where I taught children and adults at professional and conversation levels.
I am reliable, professional and willing to go the extra mile to assure that what you have learned is current and correct.
Learning is a life long process, and through languages, you will learn different aspects of life and cultures all over the world. You will become in part, a global citizen with skills that will differentiate you from others.
My rate request is $40.00 per hour plus .60 cents per mile driven to and from your home or other address chosen by you. Thank you.
