About Kristina


Bio

Hi there, my name is Kristina! I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities with a BA in Spanish & Portuguese Studies in 2014. While living in the metro I’ve tutored several young children (age range 1-11 years) in Portuguese and worked as a Portuguese-speaking nanny as well. Regardless of student age, I like to incorporate different types of media into the lessons and present a well-rounded approach to language learning by tying in cultural aspects (i.e., music, food, folklore,...

Hi there, my name is Kristina! I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities with a BA in Spanish & Portuguese Studies in 2014. While living in the metro I’ve tutored several young children (age range 1-11 years) in Portuguese and worked as a Portuguese-speaking nanny as well. Regardless of student age, I like to incorporate different types of media into the lessons and present a well-rounded approach to language learning by tying in cultural aspects (i.e., music, food, folklore, etc.). What I like most about tutoring is seeing that look of pure joy when a concept or tricky word finally clicks...and finding my love for Portuguese reflected back from my students.

You’ll have to ask how I learned I might be in over my head with Portuguese when I moved to Brazil at age 16 to be a Rotary Exchange student! During my 10.5 months in Bahia, Brazil I attended school, lived with two local host families, and traveled around the country quite a bit. Needless to say, I fell in love with Portuguese and the Brazilian way of life and decided to formalize my passion in college. My study abroad and formal education taught me not only how to speak fluent Portuguese but how knowing the language is one of many crucial pieces to feeling comfortable in and embraced by a new culture. Let’s achieve your Portuguese language goals!

Please message me with any questions or if you’d like more information. I can’t wait to meet you and share the in’s and out’s of tudo português (everything Portuguese)!
