I am a native of Brazil and have successfully taught Portuguese classes in the US for a decade. I began teaching in the Adult Ed program in Brookline, MA, where my students were of diverse ages and backgrounds, and had many different reasons for wanting to learn the language. I then taught at Tufts University for two years, using lively and authentic activities that kept the students engaged. Last year I was a long term substitute Portuguese teacher at Assabet Valley Technical High School in Marlborough.

As a Brazilian living in the US, I’ve had the experience of learning English, and so I understand and empathize with the process of learning a second language.

I earned a bachelor’s degree and was a journalist in Brazil for 10 years. Currently, I am working toward a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics (Foreign Language Pedagogy Major) at UMass Boston, which I will complete in 2015.
