About Marcia

I am Brazilian, currently living here in Virginia. In Brazil I was a lawyer with high writing skills. I have extensive training and teaching experience. I am experienced in teaching from elementary to university levels. I have devoted most of my life to teaching, and I am unquestionably passionate about it.

I am a licensed teacher (Brazil) from kindergarten to elementary school, which means I am able to introduce Portuguese as a second language to non-speakers properly.

I look forward to have an opportunity to teach Portuguese to you!

"Very Up-tempo Lesson"

- Jashaun, Chesapeake, VA on 1/3/15
Language:
Portuguese

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.

Portuguese

There is a true difference in learning a language from a trained, professional teacher, who has deeply studied the mother tongue (as an attorney) and learning from someone who just happens to be Brazilian. I do know how to teach the best Portuguese and am familiar with theories of how students learn and acquire languages. I love to teach. My Portuguese classes are fun, interactive and dynamic.

Very Up-tempo Lesson

Overall I thought the session went well. It felt as though Marcia could have gone slower in terms of talking and going through the lesson; maybe she felt more comfortable with me since I speak some Portuguese. But it was fun, she was very much engaged in the session, and she answered all my questions; I would definitely consider her in the future. I would only advise her to go slower.
