About Erika

I am a passionate and dedicated language teacher with over 20 years of experience helping students achieve proficiency in ESL/EFL and Portuguese. My training and qualifications in language acquisition theories, methodologies and strategies are tools that I use to meet my students needs as they embark on their learning journey with me.

I secured a BA in English with Teaching Certification and Minor in Brazilian Portuguese from the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), Brazil. I also secured an MA in American History from the University of Mississippi, where I also completed classes in Language Acquisition and taught Portuguese for two and a half years. Later, I went on to complete an MA in Biblical Literature focusing on the Biblical languages - Greek and Hebrew. I served as Biblical Greek T.A. for one and a half years.

Over the years I have helped numerous students become fluent and confident in the use of their second language. I am dynamic, enthusiastic and love what I do! I believe that one's learning experience and success has all to do with the dedication and investment of the teacher. I can't wait to invest in your dream as I help you accomplish your linguistic goals!

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.

Bible Studies

I hold a Master of Arts in Biblical Literature - Judaic Christian Concentration from Oral Roberts University. I have successfully completed all my coursework and written and defended my Thesis in May 2010. My research work focused on the Jewish roots of Jesus' teachings on humility in the Gospel of Luke.

The years I have devoted to the study of the Bible and Biblical scholarship have prepared me not only for the future goal of pursuing a PhD in the field, but also to help other students excell in their own study of the Bible and the Biblical languages. While working as a Teaching Assistant of Greek for over a year, I had the chance to sharpen my knowledge and understanding of the Old and New Testaments, and especially the Hebrew and Greek languages. For this reason, I am excited about the opportunity to help other students succeed in their work.

ESL/ESOL

I have over 15 years of experience teaching and tutoring students in ESL/EFL both in public and private institutions. I have a Bachelor's with Teaching Certificate in English, and have participated in several TEFL/TESOL conferences and seminars. Below is a list of some of the certificates I hold:

Learning Styles and TPR and Games in the college classroom; Content-based Second Language Instruction, Composition grading, and OPI and Oral Interviews grading; EFL Testing & Assessment”; “Reading Skills through Literature”; “ESL Testing and Journal"; “EFL/ESL Classroom Observation”, among others.

Greek

I hold a MA in Biblical Literature. I was a Teaching Assistant of Biblical Greek for over a year. As a TA, I gained experience in writing and grading quizzes and exams, doing translation work and reviewing grammar assignments; teaching a class monthly and tutoring students as well as preparing them for all the exams.

Portuguese

I am a native Portuguese speaker with several years of training and experience teaching Portuguese at the university level.

I am blessed to have Erika as my tutor.

Erika has a passion to teach. She wants you to excel to your full potential in language learning and gives you the proper techniques for you to learn and grow. I would highly suggest Erika to anyone who is wavering in their tutor choosing. I am a missionary in Mozambique, Africa so she researched the Portuguese that is spoken there and learns the correct way to teach me, even though she speaks Bra
