About Me

Hello Everyone!! I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I've lived most of my life but Los Angeles has been my home for the last 10 years. I love learning more about other cultures as much as I love sharing mine. I have about 3 years of experience teaching English and Portuguese and can definitely say the moments I got to share with my students were priceless. My classes were always fun and I always made sure my students understood what was being taught. Even if that meant making the silliest impersonations in the classroom in order to deliver the material. Needless to say, the classes were filled with laughter. I like my classes to be relaxed, more like two friends having a conversation. I truly believe one has to speak the language in order to really learn it so I like the classes to be mainly done in the language that the student is learning. But don't worry, I will use all the possible tools to help you learn, such as flash cards, music, videos, objects, etc. Before we start working together we will talk about what your goals are so we can come up with a plan of action that fits your needs.

Olá! Eu nasci e fui criada no Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, mas moro em Los Angeles há 10 anos. Eu amo aprender mais sobre as diferentes culturas tanto quanto ensinar mais sobre a minha. Eu tenho 3 anos de experiência dando aula de português e inglês e posso afirmar que eu tive os melhores momentos em sala com meus alunos. As minhas aulas sempre foram super divertidas e sempre me certifiquei de que meus alunos estavam aprendendo a matéria que estava sendo ensinada, mesmo que eu tivesse que agir como uma boba fazendo imitações. Nem preciso dizer que as aulas eram repletas de risadas. Eu gosto que as minhas aulas sejam descontraídas, como um bate-papo entre amigos. Eu acredito que para se aprender uma língua é necessário praticá-la, então eu procuro dar as minhas aulas inteiramente na língua que está sendo aprendida. Mas não se preocupe, eu vou usar todos os artifícios possíveis para que você possa aprender, como por exemplo: gravuras, música, vídeos, objetos, etc. Antes de começarmos a trabalhar juntos, nós vamos conversar sobre seus objetivos e desenvolver um plano de aula que atenda às suas necessidades.
