About Patricia

I am an Architect and Urban Planner that loves to teach. I have more than 25 years of experience, teaching undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students in different fields related to Architecture, Urban Planning, Civil Engineering, Environmental Education, Geography, Management Project, among other.

I have been a Language teacher since 1996, teaching Spanish, Portuguese and English as a Second Language for different levels. I am the author of several papers and book chapters in the area of education and didactic, both themes in which I have developed research and performed post-doctoral studies. I like to work with techniques and dynamics that motivate students to learn and like to study.

I am looking forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your learning goals. Brazilian Portuguese is my native language. I have experience tutoring Brazilians students and international students in Brazil and also in the US. Spanish is my second language. I have lived and studied my PhD in Spain. I start teaching Spanish in 1996, in Brazil.

As a Professor for more than 20 years in different courses, I have realized that study skills is the first thing that students need and they don't have access to this knowledge every where. So, I decided to help them with that classes on the first part of each course and it helps a lot their success.

My Project Management qualifications are related to my professional field and I was a Professor for undergraduate students on a Project Management Course. Also, I have developed studies and Scientific Post-Doctoral Researches related to that topic.

I have studied Architecture and Urban Planning at the Federal University of Bahia (Brazil), where I received my Bachelor Degree in 1994. And I conclude my PhD in Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (Spain), in 2003.
