About Emma

In March of 2013, I started learning Brazilian Portuguese in preparation to living in the states of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil as a missionary. For six weeks I learned Brazilian Portuguese grammar at the Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Provo, Utah. In the MTC we learned through "full immersion." We had a two Portuguese teachers who had lived in Brazil and Portugal for a year to two years, and they only spoke in Portuguese to us. So all day long for six long weeks I was exposed to the language. After the six weeks in the MTC I hopped on a plane and moved to Brazil, where I lived for close to 14 months. In Brazil, I lived with Brazilians for my entire stay, with the exception of two Americans who I helped learn the language for six weeks, and within six months I was able to hold a conversation with the natives, and my efficiency only grew. By the time I completed my stay in Brazil most people thought that I was a native.

I know that learning a new language can be hard and requires patience with your self and encouragement from others and as a tutor I plan on helping my students gain confidence in the language and in themselves. I also plan on arranging my lessons in the same format that was taught to me in the Missionary Training Center, which will require me speaking almost 100% Portuguese. It will be hard, but it can be done, and I plan on helping in every way I can! You will learn to read, write, and speak Portuguese.

Approved subjects

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.

Bible Studies

I attended 4 years of seminary and have taken some college level Bible classes. I also served as a church missionary for 14 months in Brazil.
