About Lygia

My love for teaching comes from 20 years of experience in the post-secondary education. I trained hundreds of students in their chosen field, who moved on to very successful careers. My goal is to foster long-life learning skills, so you can become an independent learner. With work and practice you will become a successful learner.

I taught math at the post-secondary level, in technical math and problem solving courses. Math is a subject that many students fear, but I can show you how you use math in everyday life, and that it can be actually fun.

I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I am fluent in Portuguese, both spoken and written.

My familiarity with AutoCAD started in 1992. Throughout the years I witness the changes anad improvements in the software. I taught AutoCAD for over 20 years.

I discovered art during my early years, and through my studies of architecture in Brazil and Italy, art and its history became one of my passions. I taught courses in Art Appreciation, History of Art, and Modern Art.

It's my belief that anyone can learn given the right tools. I struggled through my first years of college, but with my professor's guidance and support I was able to succeed. I can provide you with the same, and I'll make it meaningful and enjoyable.
