About Adriana

Learn Portuguese/English from a bilingual native Brazilian-American who has put her language skills to practice as a legal and medical interpreter, and is living day-to-day in a bilingual household.

Fluent in English and Portuguese and conversational in Spanish, I am driven by the passion for language instruction, interpreting, and translation and the continuous improvement of its practice, as well as bridging the gap between different cultures.

I graduated from the State University of Rio de Janeiro with a major in English literature and have taught English speakers Portuguese. I am also a trained interpreter and translator with over 10 years of experience in the Court System, conferences, business meetings, and hospitals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in English and Literatures from the UERJ (Rio de Janeiro State University) , and I was trained to teach English to non-English speakers (ESL). I have worked as a interpreter and translations for more than 10 years and also as a tutor.

Portuguese

I am from Brazil and lived in the US since 2002. My native language is Portuguese and I have worked as an interpreter and translator serving the Portuguese and Brazilian community for more than 10 years. I live in a bilingual household, and have a passion for languages.

Great First Lesson

Adriana is a good teacher. I enjoyed my first lesson and look forward to working with her on a weekly basis. First lesson was very practical - learning common phrases and pronounciations.
