In my professional career of more than 25 years, I have had much success.

I have been a teacher for more than 25 years, teaching different subjects in various fields. I can help you pass your citizenship exam or speak more like an American. Being bilingual (Portuguese and English) has deepened my understanding of problem areas when learning a foreign language and how to solve these issues. I can help you improve your English language and communication skills as well as prepare you for living and working in USA.
Education is my passion. I love teaching.

Great Teacher, very engaging

Lesson four with Maria. I was have trouble differentiating between ser and estar. Maria took the time to explain the differences. She is very patient and goes over anything you don’t understand. She gave me homework to double check my surety of the verbs. She truly wants you to understand everything fully before moving onto the next lesson. Extremely grateful to have her as a professor.

Tutor responded:

Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad to know that you feel confident with my work. It is a pleasure for me to teach you Portuguese. You are a very attentive, participative and hardworking student. Maria

Flexible and Structured

I am an individual who needs structure and goals to focus. Maria has done a good job at helping me plot out some goals and how we will do it. I also appreciate the accountability of homework. I am capable of studying on my own but with her assignments before our next lesson I am able to use that and my own personal material to learn more. I really feel like just from the last few lessons that I am gaining a better understanding of Portuguese.

Dear Lawrence, Thank you for your kind words and the confidence you put into my work. It is my duty as an education professional to do my best for my students. It's a great pleasure for me to teach you. Thank you, Maria

Very good at explaining the lessons

She was very good at working on my pronunciation and working through the workbook. I would definitely recommend her. She listened to what I wanted to use Portuguese for and geared the lesson to my goals.

Excellent tutor

I'm trying to get ready for a month in Portugal next spring. My French is okay and I speak a little Spanish and Italian. But Portuguese is challenging. It's going to take awhile to get the pronunciation and sentence structure into my head. Maria is working out very well for me. We'll keep at it.

Fantastic First Lesson

Super fun lesson getting to know my goals and coming up with a plan. Maria is very patient which put me at ease right away. I'm a complete beginner but I still felt like I learned a lot in our first lesson and had a great time too! I can't wait for more!

Knowledgeable and excellent instructor

Maria is a very patient and detail-oriented tutor. She pushes us just enough to assist us in obtaining our goal of learning to speak, read and write the European Portuguese language.

I highly recommend Maria!

I have been taking lessons with Maria for several months now and she is very good at customizing her teaching based on your needs. She has supplied me with a number of different materials along the way to supplement my learning as I need it. European Portuguese is a difficult language for me to learn but with Maria’s help I am beginning to write and speak sentences with more confidence. She is extremely kind and patient and can meet anyone at their current level.

Patient and knowledgeable tutor

Maria has been such a great tutor for me for several months. She is very patient and knows how to work with students to improve comprehension in all aspects of learning a language—reading, writing, understanding and speaking Portuguese. I am over 50, but Maria has convinced me that with time and effort, I can learn her beautiful language. I highly recommend studying Portuguese with Maria!
