Having finished my thesis for the University of Virginia, I am continuing my education in Winchester, VA. I received a 3.7 out of 4.0 for my degree in Linguistics. In High School, I achieved a 4.2 out of 4.0 because of advanced courses in science and mathematics. I taught English spelling, vocabulary and grammar to foreign students at the University of Virginia as well as to students in Brazil and Portugal. I speak fluent Portuguese, both Continental and Brazilian varieties. I also took six years of Latin and two years of Ancient Greek. I took the fast track for Mathematics all the way to AP Calculus BC. In the sciences, I excelled in Biology, Chemistry, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Physics and Anatomy. I continued my education of Literature at the University of Virginia with European and American Literature as well as contemporary literature and Literary theory. I am formally trained in philosophy with a focus in Contemporary philosophy. My thesis involved advanced understanding of Cultural as well as Linguistic Anthropology. I have a distinct ability to frame arguments and concepts in simple terms, either by reduction or by metaphor. I am also fluent in both Brazilian and Continental Portuguese. I look forward to serving the Winchester area in its educational needs.
