I have over 12 years of experience teaching Portuguese to corporate students as well as individuals. Most of my students work with Brazilian companies, therefore I am very familiar and well attuned to their language needs. The classes are fun, with conversational exercises to give the students the practice they need to communicate in Portuguese with their clients. Besides Portuguese I also teach conversational English and Spanish. My English students are in the vast majority Brazilians that are improving their English skills. Many have some knowledge of English but feel they can't converse and therefore I focus my classes on conversation.
I graduated in Veterinary School in Brazil. I have been working with languages for many years and I also worked as a Portuguese - English Interpreter/Translator in the past. Because cultural knowledge is important in the business world, I include that in my lessons. Are you ready to have interesting conversations and learn a language at the same time?

After 7 years as a translator - interpreter I decided to start teaching languages and enjoyed it so much that since then I have been teaching languages full time. The fact that I am able to go back and forth in two languages as an interpreter helped me connect with my first students and discover a passion for teaching. I have lived in the USA for 20 years and the cultural knowledge also brings a bonus to the classes and make it more dynamic. You can rest assured that I understand the different ways an English learner tries to create connections between languages. Therefore I feel I am qualified to teach ESL.

I am a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker. The main focus of my classes is conversation. Why? Because that's how we learn any language! Talking. I also work with writing and reading according to my students needs. I have over 12 years of experience teaching students with different reasons to learn a language. Some want to travel, some need Portuguese for work and some just enjoy learning a language. I create material guided to my students needs and goals. Try a lesson and see how much fun it is to learn a language!

An instructor who will make you feel good about speaking Portuguese!

I’ve been taking classes with Lied for some time now and I think she’s a great instructor! She takes a communicative approach and can always be counted on to get me talking during our lessons. It’s great because speaking in impromptu situations is something that I struggle with but Lied makes me feel at ease. Additionally, she hones in on vocabulary and grammatical structures that I need to practice and builds these into our lessons. She’s a fun, friendly, and approachable teacher who is flexible with her scheduling and adaptable depending on what her students need.

Vikki, 19 lessons with Lied

Knowledgeable.

One thing i like about lied lessons, that she will speak to you n Spanish. And that's really good, cause that's another way how a person can learn the language.

Wonderful, attentive tutor!

Lied has been tutoring me in Portuguese for a while now and I can not thank her enough! She is patient, intuitive, and provides excellent resources for practice in between meetings. She is always on time and a great communicator. Lied really takes the time to assess areas for improvement and bases her lessons on those areas and what your goals are. 10/10 would recommend Lied!

A Great Beginning

My first lesson with Lied was wonderful. I had been working by myself with an online program for over a year. I was needing a boost to help me progress better. My first lesson with Lied was wonderful. It gave me renewed interest in learning and hope for a helpful boost in my learning moving forward.

Wesley, 45 lessons with Lied

Awesome tutor!

I’ve had 2 sessions so for and have loved my sessions. Lied will base the teaching on your level and needs. She will go at your pace and integrates your interest as part of the teaching. I would highly recommend !!! You won’t regret it!

Susan, 4 lessons with Lied

Talented instructor

She’s amazing. She has this incredible way of incorporating what you know, how you live, what you do, funny moments or literally anything, into a lesson that makes sense and is easy to remember.

Leah, 65 lessons with Lied

A truly great teacher

I’m very impressed with how Lied teaches. She is well prepared and guides me in a kind and engaging way to continually learn more vocabulary and grammar. She has lots of lesson materials ready to go. Our lessons focus on these concepts but are very conversational. The conversation keeps it fun! Ten times better than drills in a language classroom!

Katherine, 20 lessons with Lied

Attentive and fun

I have had several weeks of classes with Lied so far and she makes Portuguese fun. She has a great memory and is very personable while teaching, remembering what I need to keep work on. She is always sending me articles we have discussed in class, songs, videos, and vocabulary throughout the week to study. 10/10
