I have a passion for teaching, and ample experience working with diverse learners and providing students with effective small-group academic intervention. I have had rich experiences as an elementary school teacher, an adult language teacher, a literacy coach, and an instructional coach. I feel a true calling in helping learners of all ages achieve their learning goals. I am an enthusiastic, dynamic educator. I truly believe that every learner is capable! I look forward to helping you reach your personal/professional goals! I am fluent in English and Portuguese, and proficient in Spanish. I specialize in reading, writing, and language learning.
I am a native Brazilian from Sao Paulo. I have a degree in communications (Arts and Child development) from a Brazilian University. My passion is teaching Portuguese and sharing my country's cultural bounty. I have tutored private students in Los Angeles since 2010. My tutoring sessions are usually one hour long, one on one, and involve reading, speaking, listening and experiencing the beautiful sounds of Portuguese! Of course, sessions can be tailored to your exact needs, level of skill and purpose. For example, I worked with several jazz recording artists who were recording songs in Portuguese, but did not speak the language, to improve their accent, pronunciation and cultural understanding of the lyrics. I have worked with advanced students who were giving business presentations in Brazil to correct, adjust or improve the quality of their presentations.
