Teaching Brazilian Portuguese is a passion of mine, and my children are my very first students. Living in the USA, I started helping them learn Brazilian Portuguese as their native language from various media, in addition to the traditional learning methods (grammar and textbooks). When we text, we text in Brazilian Portuguese, where spelling and good grammar come into play. When we talk at home, we talk in Brazilian Portuguese, so that they will always be able to fluently communicate with other Brazilians and assimilate Brazilian culture without language barriers. In addition, I regularly send them news from digital Brazilian newspapers, with subjects of their interest. That’s where reading and learning new vocabulary become a part of their learning process.
It is important to remember that every person needs a unique learning experience, and that is the focus of every tutoring opportunity. I bring my Brazilian Portuguese formal education into the arena, as well as your goals and interests in the design of the right program for you. I offer in person and online tutoring, via WyzAnt's online tutoring platform and Skype.

Claudia went over the specific vocabulary that I needed. She also helped expand my understanding of the language by furthering my reading abilities. I highly recommended her as a tutor.
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.
My formal education was entirely performed in Brazil, from Kindergarten to BA in Law. I am a certified English to Portuguese translator with experience since 2004.
I worked as a Language Facilitator for the American Councils for International Education in October 2012 and October 2013.
I am currently teaching Portuguese as a heritage language.
I consistently teach my kids Portuguese grammar, syntax, and Brazilian culture, and we only speak in Portuguese at home.
