About Elena

I am a certified translator (Portuguese to English, through the American Translators Association) and interpreter (through the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters). I grew up in Brazil with American parents, and I am natively fluent in both Portuguese and English. I have taught Portuguese to students at UMass Amherst and privately as a tutor since 2003. I taught English in Brazil when I was a teenager and I regularly teach on translation and interpreting at the college and professional certificate level. I have 15+ years experience making a living as a language professional.
I love tutoring because I like to see students progress in the language and communicate at a higher level with more fluency, confidence and ease.
