About Nancy Valeria

HI! I am Brazilian-American: my father is from the Midwest and my mother is from Brazil. I was raised first in Rio de Janeiro, and then in New Orleans. I'm a Creole-Carioca! My academic background is in anthropology and my academic work has centered around comparisons of U.S. and Brazilian society.

I have taught both Portuguese and English. While at Northwestern, I taught conversational Portuguese to fellow students. As a master's student in Rio de Janeiro, I held a weekly class where I taught English to other graduate students at the university. I feel fortunate to be a native speaker of two languages, and I love to work with students to assist them in learning these languages, and improving their pronunciation and fluency. I am also fluent in Spanish, and enjoy working with Spanish speakers who are learning Portuguese.

I have worked as a translator in both languages. I was the managing editor of the Journal of Latin American Anthropology, where I had the opportunity to translate academic works.

I am passionate about teaching my native languages. I look forward to discussing your needs and wants, and how I may tailor our time together to reach your goals.
