About Irma

Hi, My name is Irma. I am a Brazilian who moved to the US several years ago when my husband joined the World Bank. I have thirty years of professional experience including fourteen years as a College Teacher in Brazil, teaching Library and Information Science. I also have a diploma in Education. I have a passion for teaching and after working for many years in libraries in the DC area I am glad to be teaching again. I also speak Spanish and French and I am very familiar with different methodologies to teach a language. The classes can be customized according to the student's needs. I visit Brazil every year and that always gives me a fresh perspective on the changes in the Brazilian culture as well as changes in the language. I am very comfortable with the Portuguese orthographic reform that went into effect in Brazil in January 2009. Please, feel free to contact me for any additional information you may need. I would love the opportunity to become your tutor! Obrigado! Hi, My name is Irma. I am a Brazilian who moved to the US several years ago when my husband joined the World Bank.

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.

Portuguese

I am a native speaker with extensive teaching experience (14 years). I have a Diploma in Education and a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science. I go back to Brazil every year and I am up to date with the Portuguese orthographic reform that went into effect in Brazil in 2009. Classes can be customized according to student's needs.

Great Portuguese teacher — Irma has been teaching Portuguese to my two little girls. They love her class and really feel they are learning. I don't have to force them to study or go to class as I had to do with other teachers. Great job! ...
