I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and have been living in the U.S. since January 2001 in the city of Houston.
I am a Psychologist who has a Specialization in Education. I am a certified professional who completed an Alternative Certification Program in 2006 (Texas Teachers). I took Intensive English Classes at HCC for 4 years.
I have been teaching Portuguese classes since 2001 to individual and group of students for Petroleum Companies.
I develop materials and teaching strategies to make sure that all students are achieving their goals of learning the language. I prepare and arrange modifications as needed for students that have any kind of special situation to acquire the language or to attend classes.
My students learn the Portuguese Language through the use of textbooks, newspapers, magazines, Internet, audio and visual equipment. I have started online Portuguese classes.
I have successfully organized and been involved in the Houston Expat Brazilian and Portuguese Speaking Meetup group since November 2004. Today the group has of more than 640 members that meet three times every month in various Brazilian restaurants. I have been very involved in my culture and with others who want to learn about my country and language.
I am anxious to start working with you to help in reaching your goal in learning Portuguese and improving your language skills.
