About Cristiane

I am a native Portuguese speaker; born and raised in Brazil, I have lived in the USA for 9 years and mastered English as well. I am used to teaching/coaching/interacting with students of all ages. I also speak Spanish and Dutch (Belgium), and that might help you as well, depending on your background. I am happy to add a cultural dimension to the language support. I can teach English as a Second Language (ESL) too.

My main focus is to assist my students in developing self-worth, discipline, positive mindset, and a passion for learning. Nothing is impossible when you apply yourself! I have received my BA in law from Brazil, a certification in life-coaching (USA), and am currently pursuing my MS in Psychology. My passion is to help my students achieve their full potential and become fulfilled with the abilities they were given.

I was always very passionate about psychology, I begun studying it in Belgium. However, I didn't finished it over there due the birth of my first child. I then moved to the US and am now completing where I've left. Since I am still in school I would feel more comfortable teaching the basics or someone that's thinking about pursuing a Bachelor's in Psychology. On another note, I do hold a certificate in Life-Coaching, which I would be more comfortable applying in this field.

I love to learn different languages, it makes you so much marketable, in addition to the brain stimulation it brings, especially for a child. It is amazing to me how they can learn it so fast! Portuguese is my primary language, as mentioned above I was born and raised in Brazil. I moved to Belgium, and there I've learned Dutch, which I mastered it in as little as a year. I speak, read and write it fluently.

I've studied English in school and mastered the language, of course you will still hear the accent :.); however, I understand, write and speak it fluently just like the above mentioned languages, with exception to Portuguese that's my primary language! ;.)
Since I am foreigner and totally understand the struggles some might face when learning a whole new language, I would like to dedicate my time to teach those that didn't quite get there in terms of fluency.

Everyone is capable of achieve whatever goals they set for themselves, as long as they believe in their abilities and have the motivation to climb high. I am here to show that your goals are not far from being reached!
I want to invite you to get on a new journey of self-discovery, to broaden your horizon with something totally new and exciting. Take a look at my profile and contact me for more information regarding the classes I am providing.

For beginners level best results; I recommend (3) 30-minute sessions per week or (2) 45-minute session per week.
I am looking forward to start the journey of transformation in your life!
