About Liana

I spent nine months living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and during that time I ate, slept, and breathed Portuguese. I left with a passion for studying and speaking the language, and with a desire to spread the knowledge and passion that I had acquired in Brazil.

Before graduating, I taught Portuguese at Macalester College, teaching grammar lessons as a lab instructor, leading the conversation hours, and doing individual tutoring with my students. I also acted as an informal advisor whose job was to help or advise my students with regards to study, work, or travel in Brazil.

My goal as a teacher/tutor are to relay my love and excitement for Portuguese to my students. I aim to teach Portuguese grammar at a manageable pace, working at a steady but not overwhelming pace. I like to work on pronunciation gradually alongside grammar, as I find that it usually becomes more accessible as knowledge and exposure to Portuguese increases. I incorporate slang and other cultural elements little by little, as I consider them to be important aspects of the language as a whole.

I have a very flexible schedule, and am generally available for tutoring every day 9am-10pm. I am also happy to tutor online if you prefer!

I look forward to hearing from you and to helping you learn the beautiful Portuguese language!
