About Christina

Hello! My name is Christina. I am both American and Brazilian (dual nationality) and was born in Pennsylvania, PA but I have lived nearly all my life in Brazil. I lived in many other countries also, such as Africa, Spain, Uruguay, Panama, Canada, Israel and Switzerland. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Law and a Post-Graduate degree in Teaching Higher Education, both from Brazil. I have been teaching for almost 30 years and love what I do. I like to see my students progress in their language skills and excel in their professional lives. I teach Spanish, French Conversation, Portuguese and English for Foreigners both on-line (through Skype) and at the student's homes/business. I teach dynamic, fun, motivating classes by using a creative, cognitive method where my students feel free and open to learn and to communicate. Thank you! Hello! My name is Christina.

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.

Bar Exam

I graduated in LAW in Brazil and passed the Brazilian Bar Association in 1975; number 8 among 200. I believe I can review legal documents/help students with legal work/studies in the United States.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching English as a Second Language in Brazil for many years in Sao Paulo, Recife, Fortaleza and Brasilia and have taught English for Foreigners as well. I Directed and Coordinated a Language Institute in Brasilia-DF, Brazil fir over 20 years, obtaining a License/Certification from the Brazilian Ministry of Education.

Portuguese

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Law and a Post-Graduate degree in Teaching Higher Education, both from Brazil. I have been teaching for almost 30 years. I am a Brazilian-Portuguese, Spanish, and French Teacher/Tutor and Interpreter.

Reading

I was born in the USA, lived many years in Brazil where I owned a language Institute and had many groups with children. I taught ESL. I speak 4 languages and am a Telephonic Interpreter for Lionbridge Security.

Spanish

I am both Brazilian and American (dual nationality), and have lived and studied in many Spanish spoken countries during all my life (Spain, Uruguay, Panama, Costa Rica, Trinidad and Tobago, and Chile). I love teaching the language and adding a plus to people's lives. I moved to Ocean Springs 6 months ago but visit Brazil frequently. I consider Spanish as my second mother tongue (first Portuguese), then English.
