I am a Portuguese School Teacher by trade and have taught children from 9th through 12th grades.

My experience also includes special education with children who have learning disabilities.

I am also a writer and have written and published School Children Learning program textbooks in Portugal. I will provide names and year of publication upon request.

My primary goals in teaching are that my students achieve their goals, taking into account that each student has their own characteristics and own pace of learning. Seeking to lead students to the practical application of the subject matter to actual situations of everyday life, whether by cultural level or in terms of personal relationships and work. In my professional career of more than 15 years, I have had much success.

Education is my passion. I love teaching.

I have qualifications to teach Portuguese language, Social Studies, Geography, and History.

Patient and knowledgeable

Maria was very patient and knowledgeable. She was able to answer my questions very well and her explanations on several grammatical points were easy to follow. I enjoyed the lesson a lot.

A Minha Professora favorita! (My favorite teacher!) She is wonderful!

Since May, I have been meeting with Maria twice a week to become fluent in European Portuguese. My fiance is from Northern Portugal. I spent a few months with his family in the beginning of this year and I was struggling with the language barrier not having any formal education in the language. My goal is to speak fluently at our wedding next year and be able to properly communicate with his family. We are going back for Christmas and I can't wait to share my progress! At our first lesson, Maria provided me with educational material to help and we have been working through each unit. We meet in person and via Skype. She is extremely flexible, caters to your own learning curve and judges your progress. She's very patient, points out areas to work on before moving forward and answers any questions I may have on a specific topic. We are already working through the second book. It is amazing how much more confident I feel in the language only after a few months. My fiance is also extremely impressed. The Portuguese language is very difficult to learn. I tried learning it on my own via Duolingo and CD's (FYI - Only Brazilian Portuguese) and was not successful. I honestly feel you need to have weekly lessons with an experienced tutor in the language. I would definitely recommend Maria to anyone interested in learning the language. I am super grateful I found Maria! She's a sweetheart!
