I have been teaching Portuguese for 10 years. First as part time in 3 schools, and then full time for 5 years. I absolutely love teaching, because it feels good to have a useful purpose. I also love languages and how much it can show about culture.

My classes are casual with intense participation of students. I believe we all should learn while having a good time. I work with a variety of books and magazines and also a lot of conversation. I cover grammar, pronunciation and cultural differences.

I am from Floripa, an island in Southern Brazil. My background is in Journalism, therefore I like to show the difference between proper and colloquial Portuguese. I also explain about different accents and pronunciation since I have worked in radio production.

I have had students that intended to learn for a quick trip and they continued taking classes and were fluent after one year.

Considered one of the best teachers in my school, I was invited to teach Portuguese in a cruise ship to Portugal.
