About Regina

Oi! Tudo bem? This is "Hi! How are you?" Brazilian style. I am a Brazilian native from Rio de Janeiro who has lived half of my life in MN. I am fluent in English and Portuguese (still fluent, for now). I have casually tutored business clients in my previous jobs, as well as friends, friends of friends and "desperate lovers" who desperately needed to communicate in Portuguese. I am well educated and hold both a B.S. in Microbiologist and a M.S. in Food Scientist/Nutrition from the university of MN. I currently work as a research/product development scientist but I do professional translation, tutoring and transcriptions whenever I can. It is my way of staying connected to the language here. My hobbies/passions are swimming, poetry and outdoor activities. I am friendly and flexible. Let me know if I can help. Brazilian Portuguese is a beautiful language and worth the effort. Oi!

Great Tutor!! — I have nothing but praise for Regina. She helped me with my pronunciation and delivery. Regina cared about my desire to speak Portuguese correctly. When I delivered the poem, there were many in my audience who thought I had known how to speak it in Portuguese since high school...when in fact I had just learned it, and the friend whom I delivered the poem to, could understand me perfectly.
