About Leticia

I have multilingual skills and a diverse cross-cultural background and have always made it a goal to foster individual, social, and academic development within schools and communities: the blueprint for a healthier and more prosperous society.

I was born in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and have lived in four different countries, as well as visited some others. I lived and worked mostly in Brazil until 1999, when I moved to the USA (Texas). I became an American citizen in June of 2005, and I hold dual citizenship of Brazil and the U.S.A.

All my credentials and three years of my teaching experience from Brazil were accepted by the SBEC and TEA in the State of Texas (I have received a 3.5 undergraduate GPA for my Bachelor of Science in English and Portuguese, and a 3.47 graduate GPA for my Master of Arts in teaching English, equivalent to regionally accredited universities in the U.S.).

Thus, I have had the opportunity to become a certified teacher in the State of Texas, and to also teach here. I have taught ESL at college level and have experience teaching at Adult Education Programs. My Texas certifications:

•Generalist (Grades EC – 4)

•English Language Arts and Reading (Grades 4 – 8)

English as a Second Language Supplemental (Grades EC -8)

I would love to help you learn English, ESL or Portuguese (or all of them), be it for travel, school, exam preparation, or just conversational classes. I am fluent in Spanish.

Contact me today: let's work out a great learning plan, especially tailored for you and your unique linguistic needs!

Cordially,
Leticia

PLEASE NOTE: Due to safety reasons, my tutoring sessions will only take place in public places. If the student would rather have online lessons (for example, via Skype), WyzAnt requires that the student must first send me an email through WyzAnt clearly stating their choice to use such online platform.

SPECIAL DISCOUNT RATES: Small groups of up to 4 students are most welcome. Learning together as a small group makes the process all the more fun. And, last but by no means least, small group rates are very affordable ( contact me to know more)!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I started working as a private ESL/English Tutor in 1986. Since then I have also taught in private English courses, at a Military School, and at Colleges.

Portuguese

I helped students learn and deepen their knowledge of the Portuguese language at different grade levels and for different career purposes, be it school work (involving grammar, reading and essay writing) or preparation for various exams required as prerequisites for the careers of their choice.

TOEFL

I have successfully tutored students of diverse language backgrounds since 1986. Being a Portuguese and ESL teacher (and also fluent in Spanish) has greatly facilitated the process of helping my students prepare for the TOEFL test.
