I was born in Mozambique, Africa. At the age of twelve, I moved to the Azores in Portugal with my family. My native language is Portuguese, and being immersed in the culture and language, I grew to love it and these values are something I am even more passionate about today. Languages come naturally to me, and through my tutoring and private language coaching, I want to share beautiful languages that I am fluent in such as Portuguese and Spanish with anyone willing or needing to learn. My focus is to coach on different levels of communication within the Portuguese, Spanish languages. I can tailor the tutoring style to match any language learning need.
I recently graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree, with a focus in Spanish. I am able to speak, write and read in Portuguese and Spanish . My tutoring services are available to assist anyone who wants to learn and develop their Portuguese and Spanish communication skills, no matter what level or pace you are starting out at. The best way to learn the language is to speak it, listen to it, read it and write it. Everyone is welcome to learn and enjoy this life time experience with me.Learning another language brings you great satisfaction to be apart of other people's culture and customs through out the world.Hope you can enjoy it with me.

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.
I started cooking at age 10. I used to be by my mom's side every night while she was preparing dinner for our family. Coming from a Portuguese background she cooked from scratch every day. I must say that she was one of the best cooks out there. I learned from the very best. My Mom used to cater for weddings and special events, and at such young age I would help her preparing delicious meals. She is the reason for my passion and ability to cook and teach others. I have been cooking for 40 years and have been giving private lessons of how to prepare easy and simple dishes to people of all ages. Let me show you how!
I have been tutoring English as a Second Language for many years and by helping others master this difficult language is quite rewarding.I have easy strategic methods for students of all ages to improve their proficiency while learning grammar,spelling and pronunciation.
I am a member of the International Deans List, from the University of Rhode Island and participated in the New England Corpus of Spanish and Portuguese Speakers. I have a BA in Arts and Science from Eastern Connecticut State University and also am an honorary member of Sigma Delta PI (Spanish Honor Society).
My primary language is Portuguese. I was born and raised in Mozambique, where primary language is Portuguese. I attended K-12 grades in Portugal. I come from a Portuguese background, my entire family is Portuguese born and raised in the Azores. I been tutoring my children and family members Portuguese because they were born here and I have a passion to teach our language and culture to anyone that wishes to learn. The key to learn any language is to speak and interact with others through their culture.
Since early age I have been passionate about speaking many languages.Being Portuguese I found that Spanish is the closest to my primary language so I decided to major in Spanish.I was on Deans List every semester and became a life time member for IDLS International Deans List Student and also a member of Sigma Delta Pi Spanish Honor Society.I have been tutoring Spanish and Portuguese privately for many years and got invited from the University of Rhode Island to take part of New England Corps linguistic research.This research is to help all University students how to pronounce foreign languages.I truly enjoy using easy methods to master any language to students of any ages.
Since I was little I had the ability to spell really difficult and complicated words. I participated in school spelling competitions and earned academic certificates in witch would put ahead of my class and able to read and write advanced text books. That passion grew over the years and helped me learn how to speak, write and read foreign languages. By breaking down a word and find its origins is the key to learn how to spell a specific word in any language!
