About Ann Louise

I was born in Rio de Janeiro and having an American mom I know exactly the challenges that Americans have to get rid of the accent! I have great tricks on how to pronounce weird sounds and you will be surprised how fast you will hit the spot. I have worked at the Beverly Hills Lingual Institute but I created my own method, very practical, to get you ready to travel to Brazil or Italy and communicate very fast. We will rehearse how to shop, to order at restaurants, hotels, how to engage in conversation and make new friends. With ten 1 1/2 hour classes you can travel and communicate! I lived in Italy for 2 years near Rome and travelled all over, so I will get you equipped to get the best of the experience.

What makes me different? Creativity in every lesson! I will make you laugh, use your visual memory and remove the blocks of learning. I have a film and dramatic arts background, so you will feel energized, vibrant and confident about your language skills after every class. And more: I will give you tips on the cultural habits of Brazilians and Italians. What is cool or not cool to do? I can help you plan your travel as well and suggest where to go, what to do and how to make the best of your trip. If you have already some knowledge of the language and want to practice conversation I am versatile in a variety of topics, from movies to sports, culinary arts, travel, world news, economy, politics, health, science, and more!

I also have a MFA in Film from UCLA. I have taught video at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, and in Rio de Janeiro. Script writing and directing are my specialty. I have written and directed a fiction feature film in Brazil and documentaries.

I have a sliding scale depending on your budget. I can travel to your home or office. Ready for some fun? Message me!
P.S. I love children and they learn very fast with me because it is all about fun.
