Most of my students work with Brazilian companies, therefore I am very familiar and well attuned to their language needs.

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!

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, 11 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, 9 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

Zoe, 15 lessons with Lied

Amazing tutor!

Very knowledgeable, dedicated and professional. So glad to be learning with her! Makes the class fun and interesting! Already looking forward to my next class :)

Claudia, 8 lessons with Lied

Great teacher very interactive!

Lied is from Brazil so that is a plus itself. She is very flexible and accommodating to teaching you based on your goals. I like that Lied gives home work and sends communication that keeps me submerged in a Portuguese. I highly recommend Lied for your language learning needs.

Shawnda, 19 lessons with Lied

Great teacher.

Lied is wonderful. I have learned a lot Portuguese (pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar). Besides, you can know Brazilian culture during the classes. She is excellent professional. Ótima. Obrigada Lied!

Yeimmy, 62 lessons with Lied

Intelligent and Fun!

Lied makes learning a difficult language a joy to do! I look forward to our weekly classes. I can see the big difference in my language since the start of my learning as well. She is always patient and tailors to my needs and wants. It is obvious that she is an experienced teacher whom has a real joy for teaching. I highly recommend Lied!

Veronica, 23 lessons with Lied

Amazing teacher

Simply amazing teacher. Smart and great didactics. I'm very happy for the choice and the way you encouraged me. I am sure that I will learn the language easily and overcome my barriers. Thank You, Lied V.

Luiz, 2 lessons with Lied

She is so patient and understands how to tailor the lessons.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson and have another coming up next week. I highly recommend Lied to everyone. She is patient and notices little differences in pronunciation. She challenges you right off of the bat and is able to work with your current understanding of Portuguese.
